Warshafsky Sues the State for Auto Accident Resulting in Paralysis
Traffic Light Pole Car Accidents Result in High Settlements for the Injured and Safer Roads for Drivers
In just a few seconds, an auto accident can completely change the rest of your life. One moment you’re enjoying your health and your freedom to do the things you love. The next you’re sitting in the aftermath of a car crash, paralyzed due to a spinal injury or brain damaged from hitting your head. You’re buried in medical bills and can’t return to work in order to pay them off. Many car crash victims can’t see a way out of their physical and financial difficulties.
The weather, the road conditions, the drivers involved, and innumerable other factors can lead to permanent, debilitating injuries or death in a car crash. While some factors may be unpredictable, others could have been prevented. When traffic lights or potholes are not repaired efficiently, they create a dangerous environment for drivers. At Warshafsky Law, we have a reputation for achieving Society Changing Judgements. The responsible parties are forced to change the way they handle problems, to the benefit of all of society.
Get the Compensation Your Deserve for Your Highway Car Crash Injuries
Not only do we make the roads safer for every other driver, we also fight to get the highest amount of compensation possible for the victim of the car accident. Auto accident victims frequently take the first offer the insurance company makes, assuming it is the amount they deserve. In reality, the insurance company makes the minimum offer, hoping you will accept it and allow them to avoid an expensive trial. Some lawyers take advantage of this process and serve as a middleman between you and the insurance company, taking a cut of your settlement without putting in any effort to get you more money.
Warshafsky Law puts the client first, preparing every case as if it will go to trial. When insurance companies see our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys coming, they know they’d better make the best offer they can. If they don’t, we take them before a judge and jury, who might award an even higher payment.
Wausau Victim Partially Paralyzed in a Car Crash with Semi-Truck in Road Construction Area
It was a dark and rainy Halloween night in 1984. Lori’s station wagon approached a complex intersection with 33 sets of traffic lights. A switch in the system had malfunctioned earlier in the day, and all 33 sets of lights were flashing red or yellow. The already confusing intersection was nearly impossible to navigate.
As Lori drove across the intersection, a semi-truck smashed into the side of her station wagon, pushing it into a light pole. Afterward, the Wausau woman had no memory of the accident. All she knew was she needed a voice synthesizer to speak and a cane to walk due to partial paralysis.
Unable to return to work, Lori knew she would never be able to pay her medical bills and provide for herself, and she was afraid she couldn’t afford an attorney either. Then she heard about our experienced car wreck lawyers and our “no fee until you win” policy. She contacted us for a free consultation, and we got to work preparing her defense for trial.
INJURED? It IS About The Money.®
hen people choose their Wisconsin 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.
With the help of traffic reconstruction experts, witness statements, and estimated speeds and distances, we created a computer simulation of the accident. The simulation showed Lori stop at a flashing red light before driving across two lanes of traffic. The truck, facing a flashing yellow light, had the opportunity to slow down before the collision. The driver claimed he never saw Lori’s car in the dark and the rain.
Both the state and the insurance companies involved were reluctant to go to trial. They knew a jury would sympathize with a young women in Lori’s condition. Even though they believed the truck driver, they offered a combined settlement of $1.3 million.
Maximum Settlement Pays for Medical Bills
Even though Lori did not have the right of way, was not wearing her seat belt, and was originally cited for a traffic violation, Warshafsky personal injury lawyer Michael Tarnoff achieved a $1.3 million settlement out of court. Part of the money was invested to provide Lori with a monthly income for the rest of her life. This Society Changing Judgement held the state accountable for the traffic light malfunction and the insurance companies accountable for Lori’s life-changing injuries.
Partial paralysis and the loss of her voice were physically painful as well as heartbreaking. Lori could no longer enjoy her life the way she used to. While getting the money she deserved could not heal her, it paid for her medical bills and ongoing treatment to give her the best life possible.
