The mother of Ryan Osowski, a young man killed in car crash on March 10, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Sam Cafi, the drunk driver who hit her son, and Trio Sports Bar and Grill LLC. Trio Sports Bar and Grill LLC had served him alcohol earlier that evening. Sam Cafi was allegedly intoxicated when he sped along a city street and crashed into the Osowski’s vehicle causing it to flip multiple times. Cafi was charged with several counts of felony driving under the influence. Osowski’s mother is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000 for the death of her son.

In Wisconsin lawsuits against bars alleging that they negligently served a patron or overserved a patron are call DRAM SHOP matters.  If you have questions about whether you have a DRAM SHOP case call Groth Law Firm, S.C.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had a good reminder in today’s Opinion section:

With most children out of school and on summer break, now is an excellent time to remind drivers to slow down, and to remind children to be careful when playing near a street. In an editorial published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning, it stated that in the last three weeks, already six children have been hit in the Milwaukee area.

Drivers should watch their speed and make sure they are not distracted by things such as texting while driving, especially in busy areas where children are playing. Likewise, parents should remind children that when crossing the street, it is always best to cross at the street corner or walk in a designated crosswalk. Parents should also make sure that children are always properly supervised when playing near a street.

Best advice: just watch out, slow down, and do not get distracted or you could cost someone their life.

New research released by State Farm Insurance shows that teen may not be getting the message about the dangers of texting and driving.  Some of the figures produced by this survey are quite shocking.  Notably, over half of teens with their license, 57% to be exact, admit to text messaging while driving.  The survey produced by State Farm also makes comparisons between teens views on texting while driving and drinking and driving.  While 83% of teens think they are likely to be in an accident if they regularly drink and drive, only 63% of teens believe they are likely to be involved in an accident if they regularly text while driving.  The study also shows a link between parents who regularly talk to their children about safe driving.  Of teens who responded that they never texted and drove, 82% said their regularly talked to their parents about safe driving.  Of teens that reported that they do text while driving, only 67% reported talking to their parents regularly about safe driving.

Texting and driving became illegal in Wisconsin in 2010 with the passage of Wisconsin Statute 346.89.  The risk of getting a ticket, however, is nothing compared to the safety risk that texting and driving creates.  Text messaging while driving is an extremely dangerous action both the person doing it and those around him or her.

If you have been the victim of an inattentive driver or have been injured in an automobile accident in the Milwaukee area or any other area in Wisconsin and are in need of a personal injury attorney, contact Groth Law Firm S.C.

Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Dennis Cimpl has recently made some headlines with a Facebook post.  Judge Cimpl commented about Wisconsin’s Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch stating, “Can you say Acting Governor Rebecca Kleifisch!”

The Landmark Legal Foundation has called for an investigation into whether Judge Cimpl violated the Wisconsin Code of Judicial Conduct.

Without commenting on the substance of the comments or the charges of Judicial impropriety we believe it is important to continue to tell the story of how Facebook can have an impact on everyone, their job, personal injury case or personal life.

You can find a story about the Facebook post here.

In San Francisco, California, a federal court has awarded Raymond Mariolle with $11.4 million in damages after sustaining a spinal injury while working for Waste Management Co. in October 2007. Mariolle was driving his truck when the front wheel collapsed causing the 55,000-pound vehicle to fall to the ground. Mariolle sustained compression injuries that have caused him severe pain even after three surgeries.
The lawsuit stated that Consolidated Metco, which made the hub for the truck, Volvo Trucks, which made the cab and chassis, and Whittke Manufacturing, which designed the truck, all knew that the hub was defective and failed to warn the drivers of this fact. After a three-week trial, the jury found that all the parts of the truck were defective and had caused Mr. Mariolle’s injuries.
The Plaintiff’s damages included $2.4 million for lost wages and all of his medical costs, $7.5 million for all the pain and suffering his injury has caused him, and $1.5 million for his wife Regina Mariolle for loss of marital and family relations.

WARNING! Rollover Danger Associated with 15 Passenger Vans June 12, 2012

Posted by Andrew Christman in FAQ Personal Injury, Milwaukee Litigation Attorney, Milwaukee Personal Injury Attorney, Personal Injury Law, Wisconsin Auto Accidents.

A recent article has highlighted the continuing safety concerns with 15 passenger vans and the tendency of these vans to rollover in collisions.  Since 2001, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has released 8 warning regarding the vans’ tendency to tip over.  This risk, it appears, is increased when the vans are carrying more passengers.  Even more disturbing, this risk increases even when the vans are not loaded to or beyond capacity.  When one of these vans is carrying 10 or more passengers the rollover rate in collisions is three times as great as it is when the van is carrying 5 or fewer passengers.
