Hear From a Winning Warshafsky Attorney

You Have One Opportunity

Gerald Bloch | 60 sec

Here’s why!

I’m attorney Gerald Block of the Warshafsky Personal Injury Law Firm. Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. But some settlements are completely unfair to the injured person. Fair settlements are obtained when the lawyers representing the injured person are fully prepared for trial. When Warshafsky settles out of court it’s because are preparation and reputation have preceded us and caused the defendants to agree to a fair settlement. I receive cards and letters from clients I represented 10, 15 even 25 years ago expressing gratitude at what the Warshafsky Firm was able to accomplish. Serious injuries have lifelong consequences. Personal injury settlement firms often do not account for the real costs of injuries 10, 15 even 25 years from now. If you are injured you have but one opportunity to make sure you have the help you need for the rest of your life without having to worry about how you will pay for it.

3 Sad Truths about Personal Injury Settlements in Wisconsin

INJURED? IT IS ABOUT THE MONEY.®

When people choose their personal injury lawyer based on the endorsement of a football player or actor, they risk choosing an attorney who has never won more money in a courtroom. Settlement mills forward your paperwork and take a cut of your damages.

Hundreds of times we have prepared cases like yours beyond the brink of trial. Facing unlimited liability AND an expensive jury trial, insurance companies fess up what your case is worth. They HATE when you choose Warshafsky. Insurance companies know: it IS about the money.

3 surprisingly painful realities to consider before choosing a Milwaukee personal injury lawyer…

1. If your case is already won, you don’t need a personal injury lawyer to take a cut of your settlement.

Sign-and-settle law firms are extensions of insurance companies. They handle the basic paperwork and send it to the proper department so seamlessly they might as well share office space. If your case is already won—in other words, if you know you’re going to get money from the insurance company—a sign-and-settle lawyer is only going to take a chunk of what you could have gotten on your own.

Insurance companies are built on top of the same actuarial mathematics as Potawatomi Casino. Potawatomi is collecting a billion dollars from Wisconsin pockets every three years because people believe they can beat probability. Actuaries build insurance policies in the same way slot machines are programmed—for maximum profits—by paying out just big enough (and just often enough) to convince passersby they might win.

The money it takes to build the giant Hotel & Casino on Canal Street does not come from paying winners. The Potawatomi building is child’s play compared to the downtown Milwaukee skyscrapers owned by multinational financial institutions and insurance companies.

The life’s work of hundreds of career mathematicians is built into your policy limits and terms. When the insurance company calls you, they will sound exceedingly sympathetic. They will follow their script, telling you over and over again, "We’re sorry this happened" and "We just want to get this taken care of for you right away." The person on the other end of your phone call is probably not a sociopath. They probably have a family and bills of their own to worry about, and they probably hope everything works out for you and your injuries. But like the slot machine paying out the occasional jackpot, the only reason that phone call happens is to increase the insurance company profits.

Just as slot machines are probably programmed in a casino’s favor, insurance companies probably think of you as nothing more than a tool for turning a quarterly profit.

2. Settlement marketing is everywhere, not just Milwaukee.

Sign-and-settle law firms are extensions of insurance companies. They handle the basic paperwork and send it to the proper department so seamlessly they might as well share office space. Over-the-phone sign-and-settle marketing has been happening for decades.

These guys collect payment all over the U.S., claiming hiring them is worth the cut they're taking out of your settlement. In reality, they’re just middlemen raking in easy money from people who need help.

The same idea is repeated by personal injury lawyers from sea to shining sea, including New Jersey, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Utah, California and Washington. They want you to think getting your case handled fast is in your best interest, which isn’t always the case.

3. "Insurance companies value your claim based on the quality of your lawyer."

"It is that simple… If your case isn’t prepared with the intent of walking into court to try it, WITH a trial attorney, you can count on getting less. I worked for 6 years representing insurance companies, and that’s the way they think." -Victor Harding, Warshafsky Law

Insurance companies know if your lawyer has a reputation for dragging insurers into costly court battles to squeeze more money out of them. Only when they feel the same fear and uncertainty as their injured clients will you find out what your case is really worth.

A personal injury lawyer should make decisions on how to handle your case not based on how fast they can get it over with but on how to make YOU the most money.
