Full Compensation For Car Accident Victims

Every year in Wisconsin, approximately 40,000 people are injured in auto accidents and almost 600 people are killed. But if you or a loved one is seriously injured, your suffering and loss cannot be summed up by Department of Transportation statistics.

The attorney you trust with your case must be someone who empathizes with you and uses that empathy as motivation to aggressively pursue justice.

At Martin Law Office, S.C., in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, attorney Kevin Martin combines legal and medical experience to deliver smart, assertive and compassionate representation that produces positive results. We represent drivers, passengers and pedestrians who've been injured by negligent or reckless drivers.

Understanding At-fault Laws For Wisconsin Insurance

In the state of Wisconsin, the insurance company for a driver who is determined to be at fault for an accident must pay to compensate any victims for personal injury and property loss.

Your first step toward recovering damages is to prove that someone other than yourself caused the accident.

You should start immediately by:

  • Taking photographs of the scene and all damage done to vehicles
  • Taking photographs of your injuries and other injured parties
  • Calling the police and getting an accident report on record
  • Collecting contact information from any witnesses to the accident
  • Getting immediate medical assistance for your injuries
  • Contacting a qualified Wisconsin vehicle accident attorney

Of course, a serious accident will likely leave you incapacitated and unable to take some of these initial steps. That makes it even more important that you contact an accident attorney immediately.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists In Wisconsin

Even when fault for an accident is clear, your path to compensation may not be. According to the Insurance Research Council, 15 percent of Wisconsin drivers are uninsured. That means that in South Milwaukee, Oak Creek and Franklin you have a one in seven chance of being hit by someone without insurance. Making matters worse is the fact that many more drivers have only purchased the statutory minimum in coverage, which is not sufficient to reimburse you for a serious injury. You won't be fully compensated through an insurance claim — especially when insurers present lowball offers or deny claims outright. You need a skilled attorney like Kevin Martin to help you.
