8 tips for winning your personal injury case in Wisconsin

  1. Be honest with your attorney 

    Tell your lawyer everything - the good, the bad, and the ugly. The more transparent you are with your lawyer, the better able they are to represent and defend your case in court. Hiding facts from them only hurts you.

  2. Do not talk without legal advice. 

    If you are being questioned by lawyers or insurance companies, don’t say a word. One verbal slip can cost you your whole case. Wait until you have found an experienced attorney to communicate on your behalf.  

  3. Plan for every outcome

    Not every case can hit the jackpot. The outcome of your case depends on a multitude of unique factors. Before going to court, have a plan for what outcomes you are willing to accept.

  4. Have a strong medical testimony

    In personal injury lawsuits, the word of a trusted medical expert can make or break the case. Finding a reputable doctor to take your side in court is a major step towards winning your case.

  5. Document everything 

    Evidence is essential in court. Take pictures, get things in writing, and save any relevant documentation. You can never have too much evidence, but you can have too little. 

  6. Have a team mentality

    You and your lawyer are a team. Throughout your lawsuit, you will need to trust one another to do what is best for the greater good. With mutual trust and good communication, victory becomes much more attainable.

  7. Make sure you are ready to commit

    Before taking on the challenge that is a lawsuit, ask yourself if you can handle it. Lawsuits take time and can be mentally, physically, and emotionally draining. For some people, the time, stress, and effort required to win in court may not be worth the potential payout. Only you can know if a legal battle is worth it to you.

  8. Pick a good attorney

    Perhaps the most important part of your entire personal injury case is picking who will represent you. Do your research and find a firm that shares your values and is willing to do the hard work on your behalf. When people choose their Wisconsin personal injury lawyer based on the endorsement of a football player or actor, they risk choosing an attorney who has not seen a courtroom for years. Settlement mills forward your paperwork and take a cut of your damages. Insurance companies know Warshafsky's reputation. They HATE when you choose us. Insurance companies know: it IS about the money.
