Every day, good people are injured through no fault of their own. Unfortunately, many corporations and insurance companies value their bottom line over your safety and well-being. To complicate things, the Wisconsin legislature has made it increasingly difficult to recover your losses by applying damage caps and statutes of limitations which are difficult to comply with.

If you are injured in a car or motorcycle accident, a fall while walking, a construction accident, by an animal encounter, through medical malpractice, or by a defective product, your first concern should be receiving necessary medical treatment.  Your next step is to consult with an attorney.  If you are not able to go to your attorney's office, your attorney should come to you.

The insurance company liable for your injuries will likely attempt to contact you shortly after the incident.  You are not obligated to give them a statement or to sign a medical authorization or to visit their doctor.  In fact, you should not do any of those things without first consulting with your own attorney.

Many insurance companies will encourage you to settle your claim for a fast payment.  Do not assume that working with the insurance company on your own will get you a fair settlement.  Insurance companies are in the business to make money and to pay out at little as possible.

Most injury cases will settle before trial. However, it is imperative to retain an attorney with trial experience, whose reputation is well-established with courts and insurance companies.  Only an attorney that is prepared to take your case to trial can help you get a fair settlement.
