How much is a slip and fall lawsuit worth in Wisconsin?

There’s no simple answer when it comes to the amount of money a slip and fall case, or any other lawsuit, will get in compensation. The payout for premises liability lawsuits depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • Your medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Incidental expenses (such as money spent traveling to doctor appointments)

Whether you suffered a slip and fall on ice, at an apartment complex, in a store, in a restaurant, or on a public sidewalk, the insurance company for the negligent property owner or manager will make a pathetically low settlement offer to avoid going to trial and paying more than they have to. Don’t make the mistake of accepting the check – you deserve more, and Warshafsky Law will get it for you.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

If you have a valid claim for falling on someone else’s property, our Milwaukee slip and fall attorneys will thoroughly investigate the situation and begin preparing your case as if it will go to trial. Unlike other Wisconsin personal injury firms, our goal is to get you the most money possible, not to get your case over with as quickly as possible and avoid litigation.

How do I file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Wisconsin?

Medical malpractice cases are complex and highly regulated. Our personal injury attorneys have the experience and in-depth knowledge of Wisconsin malpractice law to determine if you have a case and, if so, get you the monetary compensation you deserve.

If you’ve suffered due to cancer misdiagnosis, anesthesia errors, prescription mistakes, improper treatment, surgical errors, a missed diagnosis, or have otherwise been injured in a hospital, the responsible physician or medical facility owes you compensation. To prove any type of medical malpractice, our lawyers will show:

  • There was a doctor-patient relationship
  • The doctor was negligent
  • The negligence caused an injury
  • The injury caused specific harm or damages

Damages can include physical pain, psychological or emotional distress, medical expenses, lost wages and loss of future earning capacity.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

Generally, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in Wisconsin is three years from the date of the injury or one year from the date of discovery, so there’s no time to waste.

If you believe you or a loved one has been harmed by the negligence of a doctor, surgeon, anesthesiologist, dentist, psychiatrist or other healthcare professional, schedule a free legal consultation with our Milwaukee medical malpractice lawyers.

What Do Personal Injury Lawyers Charge?

After an injury, many people worry about the cost of a lawyer on top of their medical expenses. With Warshafsky Law Firm, your initial case assessment is completely free. Our personal injury lawyers get paid based on how much money we can get you, and there’s NO FEE until you collect compensation. At Warshafsky, we have built our reputation on doing all we can to get you the most money possible.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

Many other Milwaukee personal injury attorneys are “settlement mills.” They settle your case as fast as possible, accepting low offers from insurance companies, and make their money by handling a large volume of cases in a short amount of time.

At Warshafsky Law Firm, our goal is to get you the money you deserve. Fast, easy settlements are not our priority. As no win, no fee lawyers, we fight for every penny you are owed, and you don’t pay anything until you’ve received your compensation.

We get the highest settlement possible by starting to prepare your case for trial as soon as you call. We investigate the unique circumstances of your injury and seek out witnesses, medical doctors, and any other person whose testimony will improve your case. We follow your recovery progress and occupational status since missed time at work usually leads to larger settlements.

Insurance companies make a low offer first to try to save money and time. By preparing for full litigation, our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers show the insurers we won’t accept anything less than the maximum legal worth of your injury. Once Warshafsky gets involved, insurers usually increase their offer in an attempt to avoid the expense of a trial. Our excellent personal injury lawyers weigh the new offer against what you stand to win at trial to determine how to get YOU the most money.

Everything we do works toward our goal of getting the most money for our clients. From the free consultation until you have a check in your hands, our no win, no fee lawyers are committed to getting you the maximum compensation.

I’ve just been injured in an automobile accident, who should I speak to before I contact a Milwaukee car accident lawyer?

First and foremost, get whatever medical attention is required. For emergencies, call 911.  If you can safely talk to everyone on the scene, collect names, insurers and license plate numbers. When talking to police and paramedics, limit your discussion to the facts. Never assume blame or make accusations. Once everyone is safe and secure, contact your Milwaukee auto accident attorney for further advice. Your Milwaukee personal injury lawyer should guide you through your forthcoming tasks: monitoring injuries, getting needed medical attention, record keeping, taking photographs, and interacting with insurance companies.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

Should I Hire a Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawyer?

Do you want to be made whole? If you are considering litigation, it IS About The Money.  At Warshafsky, we fight smartly and tenaciously for every penny of personal injury compensation you are entitled to by Wisconsin Law. 

If you've been injured in an accident, you'll benefit from calling an expert Milwaukee personal injury attorney from Warshafsky law firm. Our specialized and expert-of-all-expert knowledge of Wisconsin personal injury law gets clients the largest settlements and judgments.

We advise all accident victims to be wary of initial settlement offers. Often, insurance companies will even avoid the word “offer” because it implies flexibility. Insurers send checks with release forms. The numbers on these checks are chosen for a reason. Insurance companies save money by getting you to accept the offer.

Expert Warshafsky Milwaukee personal injury lawyers understand how to maximize compensation. We will study legal precedent and the unique circumstances of your case to get you the FULL LEGAL WORTH of your injury. When Warshafsky gets involved, insurance companies typically increase their settlement offers hoping to avoid costly litigation and judgments. Warshafsky excels at evaluating these offers and weighing them against expectations at trial.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

Every action our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys take is predicated on getting the MOST MONEY FOR OUR CLIENTS. You will get a free initial consultation. You will pay no fees for any services until financial recovery is made.

INJURED? It IS About The Money.®

  1. Clients contact our Milwaukee personal injury law firm via phone or the web to set up a confidential, free initial consultation.
  2. During the initial consultation we’ll collect information and prepare you for what comes next.
  3. We will collect as many details about the accident as possible. Warshafsky will utilize initial consultation information to find all possible causes, witnesses and evidence applicable to your lawsuit.
  4. We’ll begin documenting your injuries and have our certified accident investigator probe further into police reports, take pictures and obtain witness statements.
  5. Our lawyers will also draw upon relevant experts including medical doctors, industry-specific product liability specialists and any person capable of providing testimony to enhance the value of your case.

During our investigation, we’ll stay up to date on your medical progress. We’ll also want to know about your occupational status.  Missed time at work often leads to more money in both judgments and settlements. Settlement negotiation will be ever present even though unlike other Milwaukee personal injury attorneys, fast settlements are not our priority. We are always in preparation for full scale litigation, as Warshafsky’s trial preparedness causes insurers to make maximum settlement offers while enhancing judgment potential when we do go to trial. Our preparedness will strengthen your position throughout your lawsuit.

If the settlement offer is insufficient or your case warrants a trial to achieve maximum financial recovery we move into the “discovery phase”. The defendant’s attorneys may ask you to give testimony or answer written questions (known as interrogatories). We will make sure you are prepared.

Whether your case comes down to settlement, jury or judge, Warshafsky WILL get the highest monetary award for your injury and damages. Our process ends with reviewing and advising you about possible release forms. And getting the biggest possible check into your hands.
