If you or a loved one has been harmed in an accident, you may be entitled to much more compensation than you think. The settlement offer you receive from an insurance company may only amount to a fraction of what you could obtain with an experienced Wisconsin personal injury lawyer by your side. You may never find out what your case may be worth until you call a law firm and schedule a consultation.
At Studinski Law, LLC, we offer a free case consultation to anyone who wants to learn more about the compensation process after their accident. We have offices located in Plover and Marshfield, making us a convenient option for anyone living in the Wisconsin Rapids area or Portage, Wood, Marathon, or Waupaca Counties. We handle cases throughout Wisconsin, in every county. Contact us today at (715) 343-2850 to schedule your free consultation with our Wisconsin accident attorneys.
Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are Ready to Discuss Your Case
What you get out of the initial consultation with a lawyer depends in part on how prepared you are for the meeting. Your prospective lawyer will be able to give you a clearer view of your legal options if you come to the meeting with all of the documentation potentially relating to your accident and injuries, including:
- Police report from the accident;
- Photos of the accident scene;
- Any information about or statements from witnesses;
- Copies of emails or messages from an insurance company or other parties involved in the accident;
- Repair invoices and bills proving damage to your vehicle or other property;
- Bills and invoices for medical treatment including emergency care, doctor visits, medication, medical equipment, and rehabilitation; and
- Any communication with your employer relating to your inability to work because of the accident.
- Your own insurance information
- Power of attorney documents, if you are consulting on behalf of another person
By reviewing this information, your lawyer will be able to quickly and accurately determine what avenues for compensation you may be able to pursue. In addition to reviewing this information, the lawyer will also ask you about your recollections of the accident and the issues you have faced during your recovery. To this end, it can be helpful to come to the initial consultation with notes about your experience of the accident and its aftermath.
Your lawyer will need all of this information to determine the extent of the damages you suffered, and what theories of recovery might be available to support your claim for compensation. If you’ve been injured in an accident, your legal team will generally need to prove one of the following theories to get compensation for your damages:
- Wrongful death
- Loss of consortium
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability
These are just a few of the theories for recovery that a lawyer can use to get you the compensation you deserve. If you bring detailed and relevant information to the initial consultation, your lawyer can get a good idea of what options are available in your case. This puts you in a good position to decide whether or not you want to retain their services.
You Don’t Need to Pay Us Until We Recover
One of the reasons why many people don’t consider getting a lawyer after an accident is that they’re worried they can’t afford the legal fees. But at Studinski Law, LLC, we don’t charge our personal injury or wrongful death clients a fee until we recover a settlement or a judgement on their behalf. If you don’t recover any money, you do not owe us anything. Our team of experienced Wisconsin personal injury lawyers have a proven track record of obtaining positive outcomes in the following types of cases:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Injuries occurring on someone else’s property
- Wrongful Death suits
- Elder abuse and nursing home negligence
- Workplace injuries
- Insurance bad faith
Chances are, if you’ve been injured under these circumstances, we may be able to help. We will work on your behalf to maximize your compensation in both the insurance claims process and in the courts if necessary.
