Q And A With A Wisconsin Car Accident Lawyer

Questions And Answers From a Car Accident Lawyer

Hiring a Wisconsin car accident lawyer can be a daunting thought, but it is a smart move that will only help you. If you have been involved in a car accident and suffered injuries of any kind, an attorney can make sure you are treated fairly, that your claim is handled in a timely manner, and that you receive the full claim amount to which you are entitled.

The most important service an accident attorney provides is to deliver peace of mind. Hiring an experienced attorney to manage your claim means you can focus on recovering from your injuries while they handle the intricacies of the claim.

Q&A With A Car Accident Lawyer

  • What is the first thing an accident victim should do after a car accident?

If you have been in an accident, always get medical attention right away, even if you feel fine. After an accident, adrenaline is high and you may not feel injured until later. Car accident injuries are also insidious. They may not show up immediately and it can take weeks or months before you put two and two together that what you are feeling today may be connected to a fender bender you had 3 weeks ago. A medical exam shortly after the accident can help identify any of these hidden injuries. Plus, you will be better able to get the care you need if and when pain does rear its ugly head.

We also always advise accident victims to get pictures of the damage to their vehicle and to preserve any evidence they have such as medical reports and bills. Keeping notes or journaling about your recovery process can help document the changes the injury has had on your life and be used to build an injury case.

  • How long does it take to settle cases?

How it takes to settle a case is variable. Accident cases depend on several factors, including the type of injuries you have suffered. You may receive an early settlement offer from the insurance company but be forewarned that these offers may be inadequate for your recovery needs. We always advise clients to speak with a Wisconsin accident lawyer before accepting any such offer. We conduct a thorough analysis of your needs to determine the most appropriate claim amount and will advocate for you to receive the full amount you are due.

  • Can I get compensated for my injuries?

Yes. Most people know they can be compensated for any necessary repairs to their vehicle after an accident, but compensation for your injuries is also possible and is a primary consideration in car accident cases. You can obtain compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and property damage, and you can also obtain compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress.

  • When should I file a personal injury claim?

Wisconsin has a 3-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims, including car accidents. The statute of limitations is two years for wrongful death actions.  This means that you must file a personal injury claim within 3 years from the date of the accident to obtain compensation. If you try to file after this time, your case will be dismissed and you will have lost any chance of obtaining compensation for your injuries.
