Avoid Settlement Mill Personal Injury Firms

Many of the largest personal injury law firms are Settlement Mills cooperating with insurance companies to reach an agreeable settlement quickly and with the least expense for the legal representatives on both sides. Now and then, working in harmony with insurance companies is perfectly fine and serves the client’s best interest. More often, it is prudent to be respectfully adversarial with insurance companies as the legal representative of an injured person.

Milwaukee Personal Injury Attorneys and Retainer Fees

If an attorney does NOT work on contingency they will ask you to agree upon a retainer fee. This is rare in personal injury law. You should choose a personal injury lawyer who only gets paid if you win. You should also choose them based on whether or not they actually go to court. Insurance companies know who will settle quickly – for less.

Do Personal Injury Lawyers Get Paid if They Lose?

No, they do not. Our personal injury lawyers in Milwaukee charge cases on contingency, meaning they only receive compensation if you do. If your case is won, your lawyer will receive a percentage of the settlement for their services; there is no charge to you if the case is lost.

Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawyers Advise, “Don't Sign and Settle"

When your representative is a sign-and-settle lawyer, the insurance companies know their liability is limited and they are in the driver’s seat. Your settlement WILL be less than it could be.

Sign and settle lawyers fill out insurance company paperwork and try to negotiate an agreeable settlement. Sign and settle lawyers make assumptions because they have no other option. They assume the police report and evidence are accurate AND the medical diagnosis and treatment are accurate and complete.

Don't Sign Anything, Even a Check

In almost all injury cases, even accidents without injury insurance companies want to close the file on liability as fast as possible. It's very common for an insurance adjuster or negotiator to come as a customer service representative check in hand.

“We want to make it right and get this taken care of for you… quickly”. 

That check is a binding contract ending liability for injuries and damages that may not be apparent at the point you are talking to the insurance customer service representative. 

The check is a settlement OFFER. 

Even if the pressure of mounting medical bills feels like the biggest financial disaster of your life, not talking to an experienced TRIAL attorney may cost you the rest of your life.

No win. No fee. Free Case Assessment.

Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawsuits Frequently Asked Questions

When should I hire a personal injury lawyer?

If you have been injured in an accident, contact Warshafsky immediately. The sooner we begin building the foundation of your case, the more money you will be able to receive for your injuries and damages. There is a statute of limitations on older injuries limiting the liability of the responsible parties. Do not hesitate to take action when your health is at stake.

Should I sign the check from the insurance company?

Ask an attorney. The settlement check could be a settlement offer attempting to absolve them of further liability.

How much does it cost to talk to a personal injury lawyer?

It doesn’t cost a penny. Your call to a personal injury lawyer is completely free and will clarify the legitimacy of your claim. While the majority of cases benefit from hiring a personal injury lawyer, not every case requires one. Your free call will help you determine whether a lawyer would be profitable to you.

How long does it take to get a settlement from a personal injury lawsuit?

It will take anywhere from several months to three years to get a settlement check in a personal injury lawsuit. Beware the quick settlement. Here’s why: A short settlement can leave you short in compensation because insurance companies will only pay large sums after investigating all aspects of liability and damages. Often, insurance companies will deny and defer your claim, hoping the need for speedy compensation will lead you to accept a smaller settlement.

What factors impact how long it takes to get my personal injury settlement check?

There are many factors including (1) the amount of time it takes to reach maximum recovery (2) an additional 30-60 days to collect medical bills/records and submit to insurance (3) potentially 4-6 weeks for insurance to review the claim (4) negotiation of settlement, or litigation to agree on settlement. Every case is different. If your finances are an immediate problem we can likely help.
