Critical Questions You Might Have When Looking For a Milwaukee, WI Car Accident Attorney
1. Why should I hire a lawyer?
If you ask the insurance company whether you need a lawyer to handle your claim, their response will often be, ‘I am sure we can come to a reasonable settlement without a lawyer.’ You should ask yourself, why doesn’t the insurance company want me to hire a lawyer? The simple answer is insurance companies know, in most cases, lawyers will obtain higher settlements for accident victims than victims who don’t hire an attorney.
2. How should I choose a lawyer?
The first thing to look for when choosing a lawyer to represent you is experience in personal injury cases. Injury cases often involve complex and difficult negotiations. You need a law firm that has many years of experience, has successfully settled thousands of personal injury cases, and is one you can trust.
Not only do you need a law firm with extensive personal injury experience, you also need to hire a law firm that you can trust. Before you hire a lawyer, ask them to furnish you with testimonials signed by his clients indicating their satisfaction with the law firm and the settlement they received. A law firm should be more than willing to provide those testimonials.
3. Can I afford a lawyer?
You can’t afford not to hire a lawyer. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. The Insurance Research Council studies show that accident victims who are represented by a lawyer receive gross settlements three times higher than those who are not represented by an attorney. Clients do not pay a fee unless we win their case. Insurance companies have their own adjusters and lawyers working and looking out for their best interest. You deserve to have an experienced lawyer looking out for your best interest.
4. How long do I need to go to the doctor?
You need to see a doctor until you feel the way you did before the accident. Insurance companies will only pay you money for your pain and suffering during the length of time you see a physician. In order for you to get paid for all your pain and suffering, you need to see your doctor until you are completely recovered or until your doctor has released you from care. If your doctor advises you that your injuries are permanent, we will discuss how you can get paid for your future pain and suffering.
5. What if the person who caused the accident does not have insurance?
In some cases, other insurance coverage will compensate you for your injuries and damages. Often there is additional insurance coverage that insurance companies do not want you to know about. This coverage most often applies when you are riding in an uninsured vehicle or hit by an uninsured motorist. During your case, our experienced team of lawyers will advise you on all available insurance coverage.
