The personal injury experience of Martin Law Office, S.C., includes, but is not limited to:

  • Traffic Collisions: Wisconsin is a state that has no shortage of people operating motor vehicles, which makes car accidents incredibly common all over the state. The amount of damage stemming from a collision can always vary, as can injury claims, but the bottom line will remain that the insurance company for a negligent driver must cover all costs of the accident.
  • Truck Accidents: Any accident involving a commercial truck will require a more rigorous investigation because liability can be far more complex in these cases. A truck driver, trucking company, maintenance company, or any number of other parties could be liable in these cases.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: Many people who are riding motorcycles in Wisconsin get a thrill from operating their vehicles, but other drivers need to properly account for motorcycles when performing certain turns or other maneuvers. It is too easy for motorcyclists to be unnoticed by other drivers and be involved in devastating collisions.
  • Nursing Home Abuse: Nursing homes in Wisconsin need to make constant efforts to improve their services, and a nursing home could be liable when one of its employees is at fault for a resident’s injury or illness. Inadequate staffing, negligent hiring practices, and poor training can all be common elements in these cases.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents: When a person slips or trips and falls in Wisconsin, the resulting accident could cause all kinds of injuries to the person. When the fall was the result of some kind of negligence by another party, then the person who fell could be able to recover compensation.
  • Dog Bite Injury Cases: Many people who are victims of dog bites do not want to file court cases about the incidents, but people should also be able to recover the damages they will need to cover their medical bills and other costs. Wisconsin dog bite laws make dog owners strictly liable for dog bite injuries.
  • Product Liability: When people encounter defective items, they may be able to file product liability claims if a defective or dangerous product causes an injury. Proving this claim will involve demonstrating a product was defective when it left a manufacturer’s control and that the defect caused a person’s injuries.
  • Medical Malpractice: Under Wisconsin medical malpractice laws, a case needs to be filed within three years of the date of an injury, or within one year of the date an injury was discovered. The state also created a five-year statute of repose under which no claim can be filed after five years although the constitutionality of the provision has been called into question by certain state courts.
  • Wrongful Death: When a person dies, the deceased person’s family often has the ability to file a wrongful death action. Wrongful death claims may be based on negligence, intentional acts, or medical malpractice. Wisconsin does impose certain limits known as “damage caps” on wrongful death claims such that a person cannot recover more than $350,000 for loss of society and companionship in a wrongful death claim, although this limit can be increased for minor children.

We Fight to Help Victims and Their Families Maximize Compensation

Many people who have been involved in accidents in the Cudahy area are going to be concerned about recovering as much financial compensation as possible, but there are often questions about exactly how much may be available in their cases. People who suffer injuries generally have a right to expect compensatory damages, which is the term that is used to describe money that is intended to restore a person to their original condition.

Most cases will involve some combination of economic damages and noneconomic damages, with economic damages being calculable losses while noneconomic damages are the kinds of losses that are more subjective. Martin Law Office, S.C., can work to recover such economic damages as property damage, lost wages, and medical bills as well as noneconomic damages like emotional distress, pain and suffering, and disfigurement.
