Car Accident Compensation
Attorney for Milwaukee Car Accident Claims
If you were recently involved in a car accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the driver or other party that caused the collision and your injuries. This can make it far easier to begin rebuilding your life and moving on, even in the face of mounting medical costs and lost earnings.
A Milwaukee car accident attorney at Cannon & Dunphy S.C. can work with you to: a) determine the fair value of your claim, and b) seek maximum compensation on your behalf by determining fault and liability. We have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of the injured and are prepared to see how we can help you.
Wisconsin utilizes a fault-based system when it comes to traffic accidents. This means that fault must be established, and that the at-fault party will be responsible for covering medical costs, lost wages and property damage that the collision has caused. The at-fault party may also be responsible for additional costs to compensate a victim for pain, suffering and emotional trauma. With this type of system in place, working with a competent lawyer is all the more important to seeking a positive case outcome.
Seeking the Largest Settlement or Award
When our team takes on a new auto accident case, we always pursue the largest settlement or award. We do so with the knowledge that a higher payout will make it that much easier for you to move on with your life, even after a serious collision. Though no amount of money could actually "compensate" a person for the injuries sustained in an accident, it can make a difference by alleviating financial difficulties so one can focus on healing – emotionally and physically.
The following types of damages may be available to a person who has been injured in a car accident:
- Medical bills
- Hospital bills and emergency care
- Medication, prescription and over-the-counter
- Medical supplies and assistive devices
- Travel expenses to and from medical treatment
- Ongoing medical care
- In-home care or treatment, if needed
- Physical therapy
- Lost earnings, lost wages and other benefits
- Future loss of earnings or earning potential
- Vehicle repairs or replacement
- Rental car costs
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, you may also be entitled to compensation. You may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages for:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral or burial expenses
- Loss of your loved one's earnings
- Loss of other contributions your loved one made
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of consortium
