Car accident: no insurance or police report Getting a higher settlement from an uninsured driver when there is no police report.

You might think it doesn’t get much worse than being injured in an accident with an uninsured driver. Not only are you injured, but there’s no way to recover for your medical expenses and lost time from work. But yes, it can be worse: You can be in an accident with an uninsured driver and have no police report of the accident.

If this is the scenario you find yourself in, don’t despair. You may still be able to get restitution for the injuries you sustained, pain and suffering you’ve endured, as well as any wages you couldn’t earn while recovering or dealing with getting your car repaired or replaced. To do so, though, you’re going to need an experienced personal injury law firm behind you. You’re going to need Warshafsky Law.

Attorneys experienced in car accident injury cases

Wisconsin car accident attorneys at Warshafsky Law have not only extensive experience with injury lawsuits but also a long history of record-setting judgments and settlements. One of the reasons we’ve been so successful is our commitment to thoroughly investigating every accident. If your accident occurred on different types of vehicles, our bicycle accident and motorcycle accident lawyers can find evidence to support your injury claim. Rather than just relying on a police report (sometimes there isn’t one), we have our own certified accident investigator.

Accident investigation is critical to identifying liable parties

As one of the few personal injury law firms with an accident investigator on staff, Warshafsky Law can build winning cases where other law firms simply can’t.

By meticulously investigating every aspect of an accident scene, leaving no stone unturned and no question unanswered, our certified accident investigator not only helps determine who was responsible for an accident but also helps uncover other sources of liability. This is particularly useful when the at-fault driver has no insurance coverage.

Often, there are other factors that contribute to a Wisconsin car accident, such as debris left in the roadway by a nearby resident, a defective braking system on the at-fault driver’s car, or even a poorly placed road sign. There may also be witnesses who can give another perspective on what happened, or even identify another vehicle as one that precipitated a chain of events leading up to the accident.  For more significant injuries including back and spine injuries like herniated discs, your medical bills may be extensive. 

6 WI Car Accident Laws that Impact your claim

No police report on file? An accident investigator is essential to building a case

As attorneys, our advice is to always contact the police after an accident so they can document the accident scene and get statements from those involved. Sometimes, though, the police aren’t called.

Maybe you didn’t contact the police because the accident didn’t seem to involve any injuries, or the damage didn’t look significant enough to call the police. Then, the next day, the injury became apparent (whiplash, for instance). Or the damage to your car was more significant than you thought.

Warshafsky handled my case with no police report. I had thousands of dollars in medical bills and no health insurance. They handled those bills too.

From a legal perspective, you’re at a big disadvantage without a police report on file. The nice man who admitted at the scene of the accident it was all his fault and he’ll pay for everything may be saying something completely different the next day. Without a police report, it becomes a “he says, she says” case. Unless you have an accident investigator who understands Wisconsin car insurance law to look into what happened.

Besides analyzing skid marks and impact damage, our investigator will look for security cameras nearby and request footage from the day of the accident. He’ll interview employees at nearby stores with a view of the accident scene. He’ll look into road conditions and road signs at the scene. In short, our accident investigator helps us build winning cases.
