Car Accident Claims
Nearly everyone is involved in a car accident at some point in their life. While a car accident happens suddenly and is over in a matter of seconds, survivors can suffer the consequences for the rest of their lives. While the severity of your injuries and your long-term costs may not be apparent at the time of the accident or shortly thereafter, our Madison Wisconsin car accident attorneys will work to ensure that you receive the full compensation you need and deserve.
The insurance company and its representatives are not your friends. No matter how kind and understanding the insurance adjuster may seem, his job is to help the insurance company reduce or reject your claim. Conversely, he may try to intimidate you into dropping your case or giving evidence which will hurt your case. You do need to report the accident to your own insurance company right away, but you should never give a statement to the insurance representatives of the other driver without consulting with you car accident lawyers first.

For example, in one case we obtained a verdict on behalf of our client in excess of 20 times the amount that the insurance company had offered for a settlement.
