Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. Do I still get the insurance money if my claim is more than the maximum amount
A: Given that you were a passenger, the likelihood is that you should be able to recover all your damages. Whether your case is a "policy limits" case will be determined by the nature of your neck injury and medical treatment and total amount of your lost wages plus your pain and suffering. If you have underinsured motorist coverage, with limits higher than the other driver, then you may also make an underinsured motorist claim. If the only insurance available is the other driver's and your lawyer wants you to take it, then the last thing I would want is information regarding the other driver's assets/recoverability because if the limits are accepted, then the other driver will no longer ever owe you anything. We frequently obtain an "Asset Affidavit" from defendant driver's who don't have enough coverage. You only get more money then the limits if the other driver agrees to pay or has the ability to pay a judgment. ... Read More
Q. How much is it possible to get for pain and suffering in a car accident?
A: Under Wisconsin personal injury law, a person who's injury was caused by the negligence of another may recover that sum of money that a jury decides will fairly and reasonably compensate them for their past pain, suffering, disability and/or disfigurement. That sum includes damages related to physical pain, humiliation, embarrassment, worry and distress suffered in the past as well as any impairment to normal activities, pleasures, and benefits of life. If there is medical support that such a person is reasonably certain to suffer such damages in the future, then he or she may recover those damages as well. There really is no objective way to determine this category of damage. Every case is different. If you had or have a serious injury, you should contact a reputable Wisconsin personal injury lawyer. ... Read More
Q. If I am injured at a construction site that I was walking past while running an errand for my boss, can I get workers'
A: I highly recommend that you contact a reputable Wisconsin worker’s compensation attorney. I cannot say for sure but it sounds as though your injury may be covered under Wisconsin worker's compensation laws. I'm happy to provide you a professional referral if you call me at 262-785-0802.
