Personal Injury & Accidents
Injuries can occur in countless ways: vehicle accidents (car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, bus, ATV, boat), slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites, defective products, workplace injuries, and intentional acts by others. In every case, the injured person (or a surviving next of kin) wants to know his or her legal rights and remedies.
With over thirty years’ experience in handling personal injury cases, we can provide answers to your questions about your rights and remedies, as well as what to expect in the legal process. In many cases, we may be able to settle your case without trial, but that depends upon many factors, which we will explain to you.
For example, in vehicle accident cases, Wisconsin law creates parameters established responsibility for causing the harm and paying for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income, property damage, and many other damages — but often there are disputes within those parameters. Although state statutes set the rules for who has the right of way in traffic situations, there also are requirements that each vehicle operator maintain a lookout and exercise reasonable care for his or her own safety.
We will carefully evaluate all of the facts of your case and provide you with a clear assessment of both the strengths and any weaknesses of your case. We will deal with insurance companies and keep you informed of the progress of your case.
