With America's aging population more people are spending their golden years in nursing homes, group homes, or assisted living. These facilities, in an effort to reduce costs, often have a high employee turnover rate and are staffed with inexperienced caregivers. If you or a loved one have experienced neglect while in a care facility, please contact our office to discuss the matter.
We are so excited to share our brand new website with you. Stop by, take a peek around and share with your friends.
Such a sad and difficult few days for so many in our neighboring community. As a former resident of the Town of Neenah, the tragedy that occurred on Sunday on I-41 hits close to home. We send our condolences to those involved in the many incidents this past weekend.
With sadness and condolences I’d like to note this weekend tallied 259 wrecks in Winnebago County including 1 fatality and 71 injured during a 131 car pileup on Highway 41 near G. While most of us will remember this as a footnote in the course of our lives, please take a moment to reflect on the wellbeing of those who were indelibly marked by the events of Sunday February 24th 2019. Each pin represents a defining moment in a family’s life regardless of whether it’s a car in a ditch, a totaled vehicle, or the loss of life. The difference being the degree of change, grief, and tragedy involved. Not one of the people behind those pins thought their lives would be impacted when they started their day. Now they cope, manage, or pick up the pieces of their lives.
There are so many resources available to gauge the condition of the roads between point A and point B, all you need to do is heed their warnings. Are you the impatient guy tailgating and passing other traffic? Are you in denial that you can actually stop thousands of pounds in 15 feet on glare ice? Can you see far enough ahead for the speed you are going? Are all my lights on? Does your work absolutely require you to be there? Ask yourself whether this trip is worth the risk and continuously assess the conditions versus your driving. We present this information to help you make your own decision. Please be patient and considerate about drivers who choose to keep it safe otherwise you’ll blink and be one those pins, or worse, take someone with you.

After a car accident, you will probably be contacted by an insurance adjuster. This adjuster may ask to record a conversation with you. They will also ask that you sign paperwork so they can pay your medical bills. Even though it may seem like they are trying to be helpful, doing these things will hurt your personal injury case.
Therefore, if you have been involved in a car accident, do not sign anything or speak to an insurance adjuster until you have contacted an experienced attorney. We offer FREE personal injury consultations.
City of Menasha Police Department
97 crashes were reported in Winnebago County from 1/27/2019 10 pm – 1/29/2019 8am during snowstorm Beth. Each crash represents thousands of dollars in repairs, citations, significant inconveniences , painful recoveries or death to those involved. When you hear warnings to stay off the roads, believe them. Even if you think you can manage to keep it between the lines, the guy next to you might not be so skilled or careful. Area travel continues to be dicey and travel should be kept to a minimum.
• Slow Down
• Turn head lights on (auto lights don’t always work in daytime)
• Anticipate stops
• Common Sense
Even though Wisconsin law now requires that all drivers carry auto insurance, not all do. Make sure that you have a sufficient amount of uninsured motorist coverage on your automobile insurance policy to protect yourself in case of an accident.
Here is a New Year's resolution that you can actually accomplish this year.
* Make a will.
We can help!

This means that if you were injured by a family member or even your spouse, you can file a lawsuit against their insurance company only. This means that you do not have to file the lawsuit or claim against your spouse directly and can continue those dinner table conversations into the future without all the awkwardness.
Our firm has obtained a large settlements for our clients through this law. If you, or someone you know, may have a Direct Action case, contact us today for a FREE consultation.

[11/23/18] Happy Thanksgiving from our families to yours.
[10/18/18] We recently moved to a new location. We are now located at 885 Western Ave Suite 100, Fond du Lac. Approximately 2 buildings south of our old location.
[01/17/17] The roads are very slick around Wisconsin today, so drive carefully. However, if you do find yourself in an accident, our Personal Injury Attorneys would be happy to discuss your case with you.
[01/02/17] Wishing everyone a "legal problem free" 2017. However, should you have any legal needs that arise, give us a call. 920-922-7113
[03/11/16] Beneficiary designations are convenient tools that allow for a quick and convenient transfer of your assets upon your death without any judicial intervention. Beneficiary designations are typical for life insurance policies and retirement accounts. They can also be used on bank accounts, real estate, and other property as well. Reviewing your accounts and assets to decide if beneficiary designations are appropriate for your individualized estate plan is something our firm would be happy to assist you with.
[01/22/16] Who should make your medical decisions for you? The answer is nobody but you. However, what if you can no longer make those decisions? Who do you trust to make potentially life or death decisions? It is a good idea to have a Healthcare Power of Attorney in the event of an unfortunate accident or illness.
[12/08/15] Thinking about becoming a landlord? Real estate can be a great investment. However, before you take the plunge and begin renting out your property, it is wise to get some advice. Talk to other landlords you know and make sure you know and understand Wisconsin's landlord/tenant laws and some of the changes that have occurred in the past couple of years. In the event of an issue between a landlord and a tenant, Wisconsin is generally very favorable to tenants. Attorney Everson and Attorney Gibbs are both landlords themselves and are well versed in Wisconsin's landlord/tenant laws.
[10/16/15] Who will get the kids if we die? This is often a question we answer for couples or single parents regarding their young children. Parents are concerned about whom will take care of their children in the event of their death. It is a good idea for parents to have a conversation with a trusted family member or friend to see if they would be willing to raise the children in this situation. It is also important to make sure that the parents' Last Will and Testament contain a guardianship provision. This makes certain that the court, which will ultimately decide whom will be the legal guardian, is well aware of the parents desire.
[10/08/15] I have a friend, whom shall remain nameless, that was recently involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist. He was struck from behind and fortunately nobody was injured in the accident. My friend assumed that because he had uninsured motorist coverage, the damage to his vehicle would be covered. Unfortunately, this form of coverage only protects the insured for bodily injury and not for property damage, and he had to pay for the damage to his vehicle himself. You should periodically check with your insurance agent to verify the type of coverage that you have on your vehicle. If you would like us to take a look at your insurance policy and explain the types of coverage that you have, we would be happy to do so.
Our office is conveniently located on the frontage road of Interstate 41 off the Johnson Street exit. 97 South Pioneer Road, Suite 300, Fond du Lac.
