An automobile accident can be very traumatic. After calling 911, you will want to make sure that you and all your passengers are getting all the medical attention they need. When you get a chance, it’s also important to collect contact information from all other drivers involved in the accident and any witnesses.
In Wyoming, self-defense is legally defined as “reasonable defensive force that is necessary to prevent injury or loss.” According to this standard, there are times when a defendant can use self-defense to avoid prosecution in cases of assault or battery, but this defense is strictly limited, and defendants should not think of self-defense as a “get-out-of-jail-free” card.
Wyoming streets, roads, and highways are traveled by local drivers, as well tourists from out-of-state who come to hunt, enjoy our lovely scenery, or visit one of our many state attractions. Many are just passing through while heading to another destination.
Wyoming is truly a hunter’s paradise. Before heading out for the day, ensure you understand the Wyoming hunting laws thoroughly – or you may find yourself in legal trouble.

TikTok is the fastest growing social media app. This short-form, video-sharing app allows users to create 15-second videos on any topic and share them. TikTok uses celebrity partnerships to generate viral content. For example, celebrity Jimmy Fallon helped drive the popularity of the app and started a challenges section on his show, using TikTok as the platform for challenges. Recently, TikTok challenges have been on police radar.
The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure by the government. In a recent Wyoming case, a Cheyenne man sued three police officers in federal court for violating his civil rights, as reported by the Gillette News Record. This civil suit was filed by Michael A. Sena after a municipal court judge ruled in his DUI case that one of these officers had lied under oath to a judge, stating that Sena had refused to take a blood test in order to obtain a search warrant. The DUI case was dismissed.
Stacking allows you to combine the limits of UM and UIM (uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage) across many vehicles, increasing your protection against accident-related costs. If your coverage limits are higher, you may be able to pay less out of pocket for a covered insurance claim.
Keep reading to learn more about when you can stack and the types of accidents where stacking policies will apply. Please note that as of May 2020, Wyoming state laws allow stacking. However, your insurer may have put anti-stacking wording into their policies. We advise you to check with your insurer for any anti-stacking policies they may have.
Drug charges can serve as an unexpected wake-up call. When you’ve been charged with a drug crime, you are probably worried about how a conviction could affect your career or reputation, as well as if you will face jail or prison time, fines and expenses, or probation.
If you are not a resident of Wyoming, you cannot hunt in wilderness areas within the state without a guide. The law is stated as follows at Section 23-2-401:
“No nonresident shall hunt big or trophy game animals on any designated wilderness area, as defined by federal or state law, in this state unless accompanied by a licensed professional guide or a resident guide.”
It is a dangerous situation to be hit by a car while riding a motorcycle. Unlike the drivers that hit them, motorcycle riders lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle and are far more vulnerable to serious or fatal injuries. This situation is made even worse when the at-fault driver leaves the scene of the accident without taking financial responsibility for the damage they caused. Fortunately, there may be ways to recover compensation if you are a motorcyclist who has been the victim of a hit-and-run driver.
