Common law marriage was abolished in Wisconsin in 1917? Therefore, if you live with someone and are not married to that person, neither of you have any rights to the other person's property upon death or incapacitation. Both of you will need a Will and Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Finance and Property if you want your significant other to have any rights to make decisions on your behalf or to inherit property.
Wisconsin Workers Compensation Attorneys
The attorneys at Zimmerman & Steber Legal Group have been handling worker's compensation matters in Wisconsin for over 20 years. This specialized area of the law requires not only a solid understanding of the legal issues, but also a good understanding of the worker's compensation administrative system. Our attorneys have represented employers, insurance carriers and third party administrators in hearings before the Worker's Compensation Division and in appeals before the Labor and Industrial Review Commission and appellate courts. We have an in-depth understanding of the complex legal issues in this rapidly evolving area of the law, and how those changes will affect our clients. We also have the depth of experience to advise our clients on the best strategy on a case, from the selection of experts to the best way to position a case for hearing.
We have experience handling a broad array of injury cases ranging from straightforward carpal tunnel or rotator cuff injuries to complex multi-party litigation involving occupational lung claims or permanent and total disability back claims. We firmly believe that superior knowledge brings superior results, and we thoroughly investigate our cases by intently reviewing medical records and other documentation, meeting with witnesses, and selecting the appropriate medical and vocational experts to support our cases. We also maintain a steady line of communication with our clients so that we are working together toward the best possible outcome on a given case.
