Best Milwaukee car accident lawyers - no win, no fee. Car crash settlement offers depend on the quality of your lawyer.

Should I hire a lawyer for an auto accident?

Yes, contact an experienced car wreck lawyer to receive the maximum insurance settlement you deserve. Milwaukee auto insurance companies often lowball claims, and shared liability laws are complicated to navigate. Wisconsin's Statute of Limitations requires you to file your personal injury case within 3 years of discovering the injury. Damages over $5,000 are not handled in small claims court. Hire the best Milwaukee car crash lawyers to build your case with on-site evidence (police reports, medical records, eyewitness testimony) and uncover hidden sources of liability.

A certified legal investigator examines the details of every Milwaukee car accident case

It is always best to document the scene of a crash immediately. After a car wreck, you may be disorientated or injured and thinking about the legal fallout. Some personal injury firms would look at a week-old crash scene and tell you to settle. At Warshafsky Law, certified legal investigator John Schatzman will investigate the crash site to find who is truly at fault. It’s NOT too late to collect valuable evidence to use against the insurance companies who may try to lowball you.

When to report a car accident

You must report a car accident to the police within 24 hours of the accident. You can use the non-emergency number and provide details about the crash and those involved. Make sure to take detailed notes (injuries, information from people involved, vehicle registration, etc.) for when you make a claim with your insurance provider. 

Don't wait to call a Milwaukee car accident attorney

Wisconsin car accident laws set guidelines on compensation. In cases involving car accident fatalities, our attorneys will fight for the highest possible settlement. Evidence and your legal representation impact how those guidelines turn into verdicts and settlements. Don’t sign any insurance paperwork without our free case evaluation.

Is Wisconsin a no-fault state? 

Wisconsin is a tort state, not a no-fault state. This means that fault is used to determine liability and who will receive compensation after an accident. If you are the person injured and need compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, etc., the at-fault individual is required to pay for all the damages you incurred from the accident. If the responsible party’s insurance can’t cover the total costs, they will have to pay for the remaining damages from their personal assets.

Uninsured & Underinsured Car Accident Victims

If you are involved in an accident with an underinsured or uninsured motorist, you will need to file a claim with your own insurance provider. The at-fault driver’s inadequate insurance will not be able to cover the damages, but your provider should. Your insurance company still might attempt to avoid paying a claim, so you’ll want a team of experienced lawyers on your side to fight off any lowball offers.
