Should I take a settlement from an insurance company?
No! My firm recommends that all individuals first and foremost speak with an attorney before dealing with an insurance company. Insurance companies are only in business for themselves and offer very low settlements to injured victims. I am not afraid to fight for your compensation and ensure that the insurance company pays you properly.
If I was sickened by a foodborne illness, can I receive compensation?
After a major medical complication that was the direct result of a foodborne illness, you may be able to receive compensation. When you work with my firm, I investigate the case and ensure that the right individuals are held responsible for their actions. Whether it is a manufacturer, supplier or provider, I can help you obtain compensation.
How much is my case worth?
It is hard to determine how much your case may be worth without speaking to an attorney. After an accident, I can evaluate the overall value of lost wages, medical costs, repair bills and emotional and physical suffering that you endured and draft an effective approach to help you obtain the highest level of compensation possible.
Will I have to go to court?
There is a possibility that every case could potentially go to court, but working with the right attorney could help you avoid a courtroom. I can try to settle your case outside of a trial, but if your case does go to court, I can aggressively litigate on your behalf.
What if the other driver was not insured?
If you were involved in a car accident, motorcycle accident or any type of vehicle collision with a driver who does not have insurance, your own insurance may be able to cover some costs. Some drivers have uninsured motorist coverage without even knowing it. Your own insurance can potentially cover damages and medical costs for you.
Can I hold a dog owner responsible for their pet's attack on me?
Yes, the state of Wisconsin allows you to file a lawsuit against a negligent dog owner after a dog bite. If it can be proven that the owner, handler or keeper did not properly secure the dog or enforce safety for the public, they may be held responsible for their actions.
What do I do if my family member died because of another person's irresponsibility?
In the event that a family member died because of another person's negligence, wrongdoing or recklessness, I may be able to help. As long as you act within the statute of limitations, you could potentially be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party.
How do I know if I have a claim?
The best way to determine if you are eligible to file a personal injury claim is to contact an attorney. As the sole practitioner at my firm, I fully review every case personally and can advise you as to the best course of legal action to take to ensure you receive the compensation you need.
