If you are not at fault for this injury, you may be entitled to compensation. In automobile accidents another driver’s carelessness or “negligence” may be a factor you should not overlook. If you are a passenger in a vehicle, and are injured you are likely covered by Wisconsin’s guest passenger statute. You have the right to be compensated for your injuries pain, suffering, loss of income and medical bills.
Accidents can also occur in many ways – in the workplace, bites from animals, intentional injuries, reaction to a drug, or as a result of medical malpractice. Determining how, and if, you have an ability to obtain compensation can be complicated. An injury attorney at KOECK KIRK & GRAVES can help you sort though these issues.
Do I need a lawyer?
Yes, if you are unsure of your rights. If you have serious injuries, or are unsure about your recovery, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney. Do so prior to giving any statements about the accident or signing any papers of any kind. You should consult an attorney as soon as possible after the injury.
What if I can’t afford a lawyer?
Personal injury attorneys frequently handle claims on a “contingent fee” basis. That is, you owe your attorney for services only if you are successful in recovering. This fee option makes having an attorney to advise you very affordable.
How soon should I decide?
The law requires you to settle your claim or start a lawsuit, or give special notice, within specified times after your injury. How soon you need to act to protect your rights is dependent upon the person or entity that caused your injury. These “statutes of limitations” questions may be complex, and you should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
