Welcome to Our Legal Blog
Insurance is a part of our everyday lives. It’s a way for you to protect against unforeseen events, whether a car wreck, a health emergency, or a fire in the home. Based on the many, many insurance commercials on TV, it would seem like insurance companies are only concerned with helping us in our time of need.
The reality is insurance companies are among the largest, wealthiest corporations in the world. In our years of practicing law in Gillette, we’ve seen countless insurance companies put their bottom line ahead of the welfare of their clients.
A lifelong Gillette resident got “a Christmas bonus” in early December 2018, when she followed clues to a lone blue spruce tree in McNanneman Park. There, she found a hidden gavel that was worth $2,500 in cash!
There are federal laws, and then there are the state laws. These laws are created by state legislatures and can vary from state to state, but most laws are logical. While a statute on robbery in California may differ slightly from the statute in Wyoming, both still make sense.
Sometimes, though, there are laws on the books that do not make any sense at all. These generally remain from a time when they, too, were considered practical laws. In most cases, people simply forgot about them or never bothered to remove them.
Cody Night Rodeo, Jackson Hole Rodeo, and Cheyenne Frontier Days are just a few of the most popular rodeos that take place in and around Wyoming. Cowboys are riding bulls, riding bucking broncos, making dangerous turns, roping cattle, and more. It’s a risky business, but rodeos aren’t just dangerous for the people in the ring. Spectators in attendance can also be hurt, as has been seen in too many rodeo accidents.
Living in Wyoming, we’re used to encounters with wildlife, whether in State Parks or in our own backyards. We understand that it can be dangerous to interact with even the cutest animals. This is not always the case with out-of-towners, though, and it’s not unusual to read news stories about park visitors who fail to follow regulations and end up getting themselves hurt or arrested. Or both.
Thanksgiving is all about tradition. Families gather together from all over the United States, or even farther away, to enjoy recipes that have been handed down for generations and to make new memories for a lifetime.
Unfortunately, not every Thanksgiving tradition is a positive one.
Being a mountainous state, Wyoming sees snow throughout the year. During the fall and winter months, storms can be particularly bad, and the amount of snow and ice on roads, sidewalks, parking lots, and other public walkways can be dangerous to pedestrians.
So, are homeowners and business owners in Wyoming legally required to remove snow, ice, and other debris? Can you sue if you do slip and fall on someone else’s property?
Dogs are a big part of the landscape here in Wyoming. We keep them not only as pets, but also as a form of security, for hunting, and for other jobs. But all these dogs, while useful, mean that people get bitten quite often in Wyoming.
Drug charges are no joke in Wyoming. Getting caught with even a small amount of illegal narcotics on your person can have serious repercussions in Wyoming courts.
Here in Wyoming, we personal injury lawyers encounter another kind of accident that most lawyers don’t: horse accidents.
