Kenosha Car Accident Lawyer

Having been injured in a car crash, you need to know if you’re eligible to pursue financial compensation from those responsible. Find out how strong your case is by speaking with a Kenosha car accident lawyer.

Whether you suffered whiplash in a rear-end collision or were thrown from your car and sustained a traumatic brain injury in a head-on crash, an auto wreck can change your life for the worse in a matter of seconds. While we call these unfortunate events “accidents,” the truth is that the vast majority of traffic collisions are caused by driver error. This means that negligence leads to the bulk of these injuries and deaths.

If you were hurt in a car crash and weren’t at fault, odds are good that the other driver was. It might even be that a third party was somehow to blame. Anyone responsible will owe you a settlement to cover your damages, so speak with a Kenosha car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg to find out if you have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim.

Finding the Cause of Your Collision

Before your claim can be filed, we’ll first need to identify the at-faulty party. In many cases, there will turn out to be more than one of these, although the other driver is likely to bear the largest portion of the fault. It’s important to have the strongest case possible, as any fault you are found responsible for will reduce your settlement amount.

Fortunately, clearly demonstrating the other side’s negligence will likewise reduce the amount of fault put on you. These are just a few of the ways someone else could have caused your auto wreck, and they’ll all need to be carefully considered by your Kenosha car accident lawyer:

  • Distracted driving, often involving texting and other forms of cell-phone use
  • Intoxication by either drugs or alcohol
  • Drowsy driving, often involving a commercial truck
  • Defective auto parts, ranging from tires to engine components
  • Roadwork, covering everything from negligent flaggers to debris in the road
  • Dangerous road conditions such as potholes, steep shoulder drop-offs, and uneven lanes

Car Crash Compensation

It’s just as important to know the worth of your claim. Without this knowledge, you risk being taken advantage of by an insurance company, who will be guaranteed to try and settle your claim on the cheap. A Kenosha car accident lawyer from our office can work with your doctor to arrive at an accurate estimation of what your current damages are and what your future needs will be.

These are just a few of the financial expenses and non-economic damages you might be able to claim in your demand for monetary compensation:

  • Medical expenses for surgeries, treatments, and checkups
  • Lost income and reduced earning ability
  • Vehicle repair and property damage
  • Physical therapy and transportation expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost enjoyment of life
