Summertime in Wisconsin is perfect for enjoying time on the water. Whether you are setting sail on a family-friendly pontoon, fishing boat, or old canoe, a day on the lake just can’t be beaten.
However, there are safety risks involved with boating. Speeding, negligence, drinking, and inexperience are all common causes of boating accidents in Wisconsin. In this post, we want to share a few tips to help you stay safe on the water this summer.
After a boating accident, you should ensure that everyone on board is safe. If there are injuries, loss of life, property damage in excess of $2,000 or the total loss of a boat, you are required to report the incident to law enforcement without delay.
As with other accidents, it is essential to gather evidence immediately. You need to collect police reports, witness testimonies, videos, and photos of the scene. A Milwaukee boating accident attorney will help you gather the evidence you need to establish a strong case against the party at fault.

Torn rotator cuffs are very common and painful injuries that can occur after an impact accident such as a car accident, traffic collision, or slip-and-fall. If you have suffered a rotator cuff injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries.
The rotator cuff is the group of tendons, ligaments, and cartilage that surrounds the shoulder joint. Its job is to keep the shoulder steady within the shoulder socket. When one of the tendons is torn from either overuse or injury, a rotator cuff tear occurs.
Torn rotator cuff accidents can happen after any abrupt movement, impact, or fall. They are particularly common in car accidents because the shoulder is very susceptible to impact injuries, based on how a driver typically positions their hands on the steering wheel.
The blunt force of being hit from behind, for example, when your hands are placed on the steering wheel and arms are outstretched, can cause serious shoulder injuries. The impact of a deployed airbag or any other blunt force can also cause a shoulder injury.
Treatment for a torn rotator cuff ranges from the conservative (rest and ice) to invasive (surgery), depending on the severity of the injury. Some common treatments for torn rotator cuffs include:
