When Does an Injury Qualify for a Settlement in Wisconsin?

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, you might be unsure whether you qualify for a settlement. You may be thinking that your injuries aren’t so bad, or that you’re not as affected as many of the other people who have filed claims for their injuries.

So, when does an injury qualify for a settlement in Wisconsin? Every case is different, which is why you’ll need to contact your attorney from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg about your injuries and damages. They’ll walk you through the reasons you should file a claim and when you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.

When You’ve Paid Financially

When you’ve been involved in an accident, you may have already paid out some funds for your losses. For example, someone might have collided with your car. It wasn’t a serious accident, but you did suffer from whiplash and your car will need repairs.

Although your injuries may not seem as severe to you, you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. You should receive compensation for any financial losses you’ve suffered because of the injury they caused.

If you’re not sure how much you’ve had to pay or still have questions about what qualifies, reach out to your Wisconsin attorney. They can guide you through your case and make sure you get the full compensation you deserve for your losses.

Impacts on Your Life

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, you’re not just facing the financial losses of your personal injury. You may also be facing serious trauma. Although you may not have expenses related to this, your quality of life might have been affected because of the injury.

For example, let’s say you suffered from a concussion because of the accident. Although you’re facing some financial losses, your main concern may be the impact on your quality of life. You may have problems with memory, communication, and fatigue. All these symptoms can severely affect how much you enjoy your daily life.

If you’re struggling with major life changes such as these, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Reach out to an attorney for guidance through these intangible losses.
