At Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz, our team of Green Bay Personal Injury Lawyers believes in giving back to the community we serve. That’s why we would like to remind citizens about several upcoming running events that are for a good cause.
The 2014 Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon and Marathon are taking place May 16-18. Runners from across the globe are scheduled to participate in the event and spaces to run are beginning to dwindle. The half marathon is already listed as being at more than 90 percent capacity, and the marathon race is already more than 70 percent full.
Registration for the event can cost anywhere from $10-$115, but there is a way runners can sign up to race at no cost. If an individual chooses to participate in the Run For A Reason fundraising program and raises $300 for one of three charities, they will be allowed to register for free! The charities include:
- Big Brothers-Big Sisters
- Golden House
Awards will be given to the top runners of several categories as well.
Our team of attorneys at Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz are hopeful more people will be inspired to run in support of a charitable organization and will participate in one of the many upcoming races!

When a person loses his or her life as the result of someone else’s negligence, victims’ families may have a right to attempt to hold the entities responsible for their loss liable for damages through civil litigation. The Wisconsin Wrongful Death Attorneys with Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz explain that a wrongful death case was recently filed in Sheboygan County Circuit Court following the murder of a young photographer in 2005.
An article from the Green Bay Press Gazette states that on Halloween in 2005, a then 43-year-old man and his 16-year-old nephew killed a 24-year-old photographer on a tract of land near Mishicot, Wisconsin. Both men were later convicted of criminal charges in connection with the incident, and the family of the victim filed a civil case against both men. The lawsuit alleged that the actions of the two men were responsible for the loss of family’s loved one.
Criminal trials and numerous appeals held up the civil claim. But just recently, the case was assigned to a judge for a hearing.
The law firm’s team of Green Bay Personal Injury Lawyers recognizes how difficult it can be to lose a loved one and are hopeful a decision in the case will bring some closure to the family of the victim.

A Wisconsin Car Accident this weekend left three motorists with injuries. Records show the crash happened at around 2 p.m. on Saturday, at the intersection of South Trail Road and Wisconsin 42 in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin.
A story published by the Green Bay Press-Gazette explained that a woman from Wilmette, Illinois, was driving along Wisconsin 42 when a vehicle suddenly pulled out into her path from South Trail Road. The woman was unable to stop in time and the two vehicles collided.
The impact of the crash left both drivers and a passenger from one of the vehicles seriously injured. Paramedics transported the victims to a local hospital for treatment.
The driver responsible for causing the crash was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way after she claimed she did not see the other vehicle.
The incident underscores the need for motorists to be more aware of their surroundings when driving.
The Green Bay Personal Injury Lawyers with Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz explain motorists eliminating distractions in their vehicles, such as cellphones and loud stereos, can achieve this goal. Drivers should also remember to always look both right and left twice before entering traffic at an intersection.
The firm is hopeful these tips will help prevent future accidents!
