Work with a Kenosha personal injury lawyer and find out if you have grounds to seek compensation and how much your claim could be worth.
Medical bills, lost wages, and more—the tremendous amount of financial expenses that can follow suffering a serious injury can overwhelm anyone. Not only is your health and future physical wellbeing at risk, but your finances could be bankrupted, as well. It’s a simple truth that an injury can happen to anyone, and you shouldn’t be expected to pay the price for the rest of your life. This is especially true when you weren’t even at fault for the accident that hurt you.
When someone else was responsible, you can recover financial compensation by bringing a personal injury claim against them. Whether it was a person, a company, or a government entity, you have this option available. It won’t be an easy process, however, which is why you should discuss your case with a Kenosha personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg.
Personal Injury Cases and Finding Fault
Before your claim can proceed, it’s important to know how strong your claim is and to identify everyone who needs to be named in your lawsuit. Wisconsin adheres to comparative negligence, so any fault you are responsible for could reduce your final payout accordingly. A Kenosha personal injury lawyer from our firm will be able to collect the evidence necessary to minimize your assigned negligence as much as possible.
It’s equally important to fully demonstrate how the at-fault party was responsible. Injury-causing accidents are as varied as the injuries themselves, and any number of different people could be at fault:
Motor Vehicle Accidents – From car crashes to semi-truck collisions, motorcycle accidents to bus wrecks, many different parties need to be considered when determining fault. This includes drivers, trucking companies, passengers, parts manufacturers, and roadwork crews.
Construction Accidents – Work sites make for hazardous work environments, and accidents often involve falls, heavy machinery, electrocution, and toxic exposure. If a third-party contractor, passerby, or equipment manufacturer was responsible, you might have a claim.
Product Liability – Defective products range from bad drugs with undisclosed side effects to gas grills that explode when lit. These dangerous products could make the manufacturer, retailer, shipper, or advertiser to blame for your catastrophic injuries.
Collecting Damages for a Catastrophic Injury
A wide variety of financial expenses and non-economic losses can be inflicted by a serious injury. On the financial side, you’ll almost certainly incur a large number of medical bills. The insurance company will need to compensate you for these, as well as any anticipated future medical needs related to either your wounds or the accident.
Your recovery might also cause you to miss work, resulting in lost income. Mobility equipment, transportation costs, property damage, medication copays—these are just a few of the financial considerations that need to be covered by your settlement.
Your Kenosha personal injury lawyer will also ensure that the damage done to your enjoyment of life is also compensated. Pain and suffering, loss of consortium, emotional distress, and disfigurement should all be included.
