There are more than 100,000 car crashes each year in Wisconsin—more than 5,000 of which involving alcohol as a contributing factor. Inattentive driving, speeding, improper lookout, texting/using cell phones are other common causes. All drivers are required to comply with the Rules of the Road. But unfortunately, this does not always happen and accidents continue to occur.
If you are injured in a car crash due to another driver’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses and will have a bodily injury claim against that driver’s insurance company. The strength of the evidence supporting your claim is the most decisive factor in assuring that you receive proper compensation. The at-fault driver’s insurance company will look for ways to build a defense to your claim in an attempt to either deny or reduce the amount of compensation payable to you. Defending against personal injury claims is big business for insurance companies.
Having an experienced personal injury attorney representing you early on in your claim is the best way to rebut insurance company defenses and ensure that you receive fair and adequate compensation. This is because an experienced attorney knows how to immediately identify any and all legal issues that might affect the value of your claim, and then build a case in support of you, by gathering and then presenting the insurance company with the best evidence enhancing the value of your claim.
Excellent settlement results are achieved when cases are handled properly and effectively by an experienced personal injury attorney. A DeVos Law Firm, LLC we take pride in the fact that the majority of our client’s auto accident cases are settled out-of-court, without the need for filing a lawsuit. This is because we take great care in building our client’s cases and demonstrating the strength of the evidence to the insurance company. But not all cases can be settled without a lawsuit. If an insurance company is not willing to pay a fair and adequate settlement, we will aggressively pursue your case through the court process. In many instances, we have recovered vastly higher compensation for our clients, far above the pre-lawsuit offer, through the litigation process.
