Milwaukee Car Accident Lawyers Fight for Fair Compensation
Smart, hardworking attorneys build compelling cases
Thousands of Wisconsin residents are injured in motor vehicle accidents every year. If you are one of them, you need to know your rights and options for obtaining fair compensation. At Sperling Law Offices LLC, we understand that your primary concern is your health, and fighting a legal battle right now might be too much stress for you to handle. That’s why our auto accident attorneys deal personally with every client we represent. We do everything possible to take the burden off your shoulders and place it on our own, as we’ve been doing for more than 30 years.
Accident attorneys protect you from unfair insurance tactics
Insurance companies devote tremendous energy to minimizing claims using a variety of methods. Sperling Law personal injury attorneys have plenty of experience with insurance companies, so we know all their tactics and help you overcome ploys such as:
- Exploiting financial fears — Accident victims often face immediate financial pressure and sometimes accept an inadequate settlement in order to receive their money quickly. We aim to relieve your burden by delaying our fee until you’ve recovered by settlement or judgment.
- Settling before medical effects are apparent — Someone who suffers a personal injury might not be aware how long the effects will linger. Insurers understand their potential long-term payout and sometimes leverage this actuarial knowledge to their benefit. We won’t let them obtain an early settlement without knowing the full extent of the harm you’ve suffered.
- Playing the waiting game — In cases of catastrophic injuries or a fatal car accident, where the payout will be large, the insurance company will often use delaying tactics to wear the claimant down so he or she accepts less compensation.
Sperling Law clients have relied on us for more than 30 years because we provide individualized attention and advice. Every plaintiff has important decisions to make, and though each circumstance is different, we ensure that every decision is fully informed and made for the correct reason.
Helping clients to obtain compensatory damages pursuant to Wisconsin law
Our attorneys also know enough to evaluate what your injury might bring in economic damages (medical expenses, rehab, long-term care, lost wages, etc.) and noneconomic damages (pain and suffering). We have experience guiding clients successfully through the uninsured motorist compensation process. Sperling Law also provides knowledgeable advice to DUI victims and those injured by distracted drivers about the effects legal violations might have on their case.
For economic damage, Wisconsin adheres to the 51 Percent Bar rule stating that no compensation is available to the driver who bears the majority of fault. The party held to be less responsible for the incident can have their recovery reduced by the percentage of their fault. For example, if Plaintiff A seeks $10,000 and the jury holds that he is 75 percent responsible, he cannot recover anything. If Plaintiff B seeks $10,000 and the jury holds that he is 25 percent responsible, he can recover, but the amount is reduced by 25 percent to $7,500. Our dynamic attorneys will deliver strong advocacy to hold the responsible party accountable and help secure maximum compensation for what you’ve endured.
