In a car crash and the at-fault driver is uninsured? You don't have to pick up the costs. Instead of suing the other driver, who likely does not have the money to pay for your damages, our Milwaukee car accident attorneys help you make a claim with your own insurance company. From general collision to hit and run incidents and uninsured motorist injury claims - if we find liability, you will recover. Your financial recovery could come from an insurance company you did not know was liable for your damages.
