Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

When you’ve been in an accident, there are various instances where an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you out. If you file an insurance claim in a car accident, an insurance adjuster will be sent to investigate the circumstances of the accident.

At the end of the day, the insurance company is a business that needs to make money, so not all insurance claims are fairly reviewed. This can result in undervalued claims, liability issues, or even a denial.

Since Wisconsin follows a comparative negligence system, if the insurance adjuster deems you to be more than 50% at fault, you may lose your right to seek compensation, or you can be assigned a higher percentage of fault than necessary, which will be deducted from your final compensation.

Fortunately, the claims process doesn’t end here unless you accept it. Insurance companies may try to get you to accept a lower settlement than you deserve. However, working with a personal injury lawyer gives you a better chance of receiving a fair settlement.

Personal injury attorneys will highlight your damages and prove the other person’s negligence based on the evidence available. An attorney can help you gather evidence to strengthen your claim, such as medical records and police reports, and conduct negotiations on your behalf.

If you do not receive a settlement offer that reflects the actual value of your damages, an experienced personal injury attorney can represent you in court to recover damages and pursue justice. A top personal injury law firm in Milwaukee can ensure a smooth litigation process.

How a Milwaukee Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You

When you pursue a personal injury claim in Milwaukee, you should consider seeking more than just compensation for your medical bills. An experienced attorney can analyze the accident report and your medical conditions to assess what non-economic damages you are entitled to.

For example, if your physical pain persists despite medical treatment or physical therapy, you might be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering. In other instances, you can seek compensation for emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, PTSD, or other similar damages.

Apart from this, if your injuries were particularly debilitating and prevented you from working, you can pursue compensation for your lost wages. A Milwaukee personal injury lawyer with our firm can assess your damages and help you pursue fair compensation.

We can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and represent your best interests. Our legal services also include assistance with filing claims and preparing legal documentation. Should the other party or the insurance company continue to deny or undervalue your claim, our trial lawyers can represent you in civil court and strengthen your claim with further evidence.

For example, our lawyers might work with third-party experts such as accident reconstruction or medical professionals to further highlight the merits of your claim and seek fair compensation.
