The Answers You Need After A Personal Injury
When you suffer a serious injury because of someone else’s recklessness or negligence, you may have a lot of questions. Knowing what to do after a personal injury is not common knowledge for everyone, which is why it helps to have someone at your side to answer your questions.
Here at Mudge Porter Lundeen & Seguin, S.C., our Wisconsin attorneys want to help you by answering some of your more pressing questions early on.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Compensation for serious injuries should include all of the expenses that came from your injury. Common examples of these expenses include:
- Lost income
- Current and future medical expenses
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
How Much Is My Case Worth?
There are many factors for how much a victim can earn for their injuries, and there are also limits to what they can receive. Wisconsin has caps on certain damages. For example, punitive damages can pay out no more than $200,000, and noneconomic damages have limits based on who you are suing. We can help you come to an accurate estimate of your damages claim.
Will My Case Go To Court?
It is possible but not very common. The vast majority of injury claims resolve before they ever go to trial. Going to trial means that both sides of a claim suffer more expenses, so it is typical for them to work diligently to reach a settlement.
What Happens After A Settlement Is Reached?
Once both parties reach a settlement agreement, the lawyers will receive the specified funds. Once we receive your settlement check, you will then receive a check for the remaining balance of your settlement after legal fees.
How Long Will It Take To Resolve My Case?
Depending on negotiations, injury claims can take some time, even as long as one or two years. We do everything in our power to resolve things quickly and efficiently without costing you money from your settlement.
How Do I Start My Claim?
The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help you receive your injury settlement.
