Auto accidents can cause tremendous losses for Wisconsin families and individuals. These include the loss of personal and work time, property damage and loss, loss of health, and sometimes loss of life. Auto accidents occur because of elements including driver error, negligence, auto manufacturing defects, and dangerous Wisconsin weather. No matter what the specific cause or result, a crash can turn a normal day into a terrible ordeal. Speak with a lawyer at the Groth Law Firm to help you sort out your rights, your options, and your future.
When you have been in an auto accident, you may have a sense of who caused it. Identifying who is at fault can be complicated by who acted when and which laws governed the situation. Immediately after a collision the insurance company of the at fault party may want to take a statement to protect their insured customer and not the injured victim. If the other driver was negligent, you may have to prove that the driver breached a duty of care to you and that the breach caused your damages. The assistance of the Groth Law Firm attorney can be immensely valuable at this time, whether you are battling an insurance company, seeking compensation for your injuries, or fighting for your rights in court.
Auto Accident Injuries and Compensation
An individual who has been injured in an automobile accident may be able to seek monetary damages for medical bills and lost wages incurred since the collision and up until the settlement or verdict. Also, there are miscellaneous expenses that attorney Jonathan Groth and the Groth Law Firm can assist you with to ensure you are fully compensated. Cases are fact specific, typically with complex issues of proof and fault in dispute. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney will help you sort out your legal options.
Insurance Claim Do’s and Don’ts
When you need to make an auto insurance claim, you should proceed with care. Insurance companies are in the business to make money. This means they aim to pay out as little as possible for pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills. To insurance companies this is just business. To an injured party the losses can be life changing. Your actions may have a significant influence on the amount of compensation you receive. Contact your Wisconsin personal injury attorneys at Groth Law Firm (877-375-7001) when injured in a car accident.
Uninsured and Under-insured Motorists
When a driver refuses or is unable to carry the proper insurance, that driver puts more than just herself or himself at risk. If the driver injures another person, the insurance will be inadequate to cover the damages. Injured parties, however, may be covered by their own insurance policies; uninsured and under-insured motorist coverage protects accident victims in these cases. If you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured or under-insured driver, it is important to contact a skilled, dedicated, and proven Wisconsin personal injury attorney to fight for your rights.
