Waukesha County personal injury attorney victimology

A personal injury claim allows an injured person to seek compensation for damages caused by the injury such as medical bills and lost income from missed work. When most people think of personal injury claims, they think of slip and fall claims, car accidents, and other claims that are founded upon an allegation of the defendant’s negligence. However, individuals who are intentionally injured may also have grounds for a personal injury claim. If you were the victim of assault or battery in Wisconsin, you may be able to hold the perpetrator accountable for their actions as well as recover financial compensation for damages through a personal injury claim.

Civil Cases Involving Assault And Battery

Being the victim of a violent crime is a life-changing experience. Most victims of sexual assault, battery, robbery, and other violent crimes are left with physical and mental scars that last for years. In addition to painful mental and physical injuries, being the victim of a physical attack can lead to considerable financial harm. If you were hurt in an act of violence, you may be facing financial hardship caused by medical expenses, lost wages from missed work, and other costs. A personal injury claim may enable you to recover compensation for your financial losses as well as your non-financial damages. A civil claim is a separate legal action from any criminal charges that the perpetrator or “tortfeasor” may face.

As any parent can tell you, raising a child is expensive. Between housing, educational and extracurricular fees, groceries, and other expenses, child-related costs can constitute a large share of a parent’s monthly bills.

The amount of child support that a parent pays is typically determined by statutory formulas. In Wisconsin, a parent’s child support obligation is determined by multiplying his or her income by a certain percentage:

If you have been involved in the criminal justice system or even watched police television shows like Law & Order, you may have heard the phrase “incompetent to stand trial.” What exactly does it mean if a criminal defendant is “incompetent” and how does this differ from a person being found not guilty by reason of insanity? Can mental illness alone prevent someone from being charged and convicted of a criminal offense in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin Man Charged with Homicide Found Not Competent to Stand Trial

In July of last year, a retired police officer and former marine was riding his motorcycle when he was struck and killed by a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup truck, a 27-year-old Wisconsin man of Mexican descent, allegedly told responding officers that he had intentionally caused the fatal accident and targeted the motorcyclist because he was Caucasian.

Divorce can have a profound impact on a person’s finances. This is especially true if the person was heavily dependent on his or her spouse’s income. Alimony, also called spousal maintenance or spousal support, is financial aid paid by one spouse to another spouse after the couple divorces. Maintenance is typically awarded to a spouse who has sacrificed education, job training, or employment opportunities to maintain the marital home and/or raise the couple’s children. If you are planning to divorce in Wisconsin and you have a lower income than your spouse, it is possible that you may be entitled to spousal maintenance.

If you are a gun owner or you are thinking about purchasing a firearm, you should know about Wisconsin open carry laws.

Wisconsin Is an Open Carry State

Gun owners may openly carry a gun in public in Wisconsin. However, there are some places in which open carry is prohibited.
