Receive a traffic ticket in Wisconsin? You may want to fight it

Many Wisconsin residents have received tickets for moving violations. A traffic ticket may not seem like a big deal, but it can be -- particularly if you end up with more than one on your record over time.

If you've received a traffic ticket, you may be tempted to just pay your fines and accept whatever other penalties may be thrown at you so that you can move on with your life. That route certainly seems like the easy thing to do. Here are a few reasons why fighting may actually be better for you.

Sobering statistics on motorcycle collisions

An accident involving any type of vehicle can be a tragic and deadly event. From large trucks to small sedans, all types of automobiles can be significantly damaged and cause grave injuries to those Wisconsin residents who are inside of them. Riders of motorcycles, though, seem to suffer harm at the hands of other drivers at a higher rate than other types of motorists.

What kinds of injuries can car accident victims sustain?

The forces that are involved in an automobile collision can be incredibly strong and very damaging. When two vehicles collide on a Wisconsin road, the intensity of the crash can be compounded by the vehicles' speeds and trajectories. Vehicles are often destroyed in collisions, and the forces that tear apart metal and glass can also inflict serious injuries on the drivers and passengers who are inside of the demolished automobiles.

Preventing trucking accidents through regulations

Hours of service regulations apply to certain truck and commercial vehicle drivers. These regulations are in place to prevent exhausted drivers from getting behind the wheels of their rigs and putting themselves and others in harm's way through their exhausted operating actions. Wisconsin residents have suffered harm when tired truck drivers allow their rigs to swerve between lanes, failed to stop in time before causing collisions and engaged in other dangerous driving practices.

Boat accident on Lake Winnebago leaves two dead

It is not uncommon for two vehicles to collide on the roads in and around Oshkosh, but recently two boats suffered a damaging collision when they struck each other on Law Winnebago. The incident occurred in the evening around 8:30 and involved a 20-foot boat and a 26-foot boat.

Securing justice after a car accident

Surviving a motor vehicle accident can be the first step down a long road toward recovery from one's accident-related injuries. With the potential for a victim to suffer minor to life-threatening harm in a car crash, a person's post-accident needs may range from a day off from work to long-term occupational and medical care. When Wisconsin residents suffer serious injuries on the roads they deserve serious legal representation for their legal claims.

Understanding field sobriety tests

As is the case anywhere else in the country, Wisconsin law enforcement officers use field sobriety tests as a tool to help determine whether a driver is impaired while driving.

"Failing" these tests supposedly provides the officer with the probable cause needed in order to make an arrest for suspicion of drunk driving. You may wonder what the tests are and what officers are looking for during the testing. Below is a quick explanation that may provide you with useful information should you ever be pulled over and accused of drunk driving.

Is a settlement a good option for a car accident victim?

Not every lawsuit that is filed over personal injuries stemming from car accidents goes to court. Many cases are settled before they ever find themselves in front of judges. The settlement process is one option that victims of Wisconsin car accidents may pursue but readers are cautioned that settlement may not always be the best option. Those who have pending personal injury claims based on vehicle collisions may wish to speak with their attorneys before agreeing to settle their claims.

Reasons that truck accidents occur

Large trucks and other commercial vehicles play an important role in the movement of goods through Wisconsin's stream of commerce. They are often seen charging down the highways and interstates of the region, loaded down with the products that individuals want and need in their homes. In fact, they are so common throughout the nation that many drivers may fail to realize just how dangerous these massive vehicles can be.

Facing drunk driving charges in Wisconsin

The week of the Fourth of July is often one of the busiest travel periods of the calendar year. Wisconsin residents may notice that more people are on the roads and that they are hauling boats, campers and other recreational cargos to enjoy time outdoors with family and friends. With all of the extra people and all of the celebrations happening throughout Wisconsin, law enforcement officials will be out in full force to regulate and stop alleged dangerous drivers.
