The Relationship Between Insurance & Car Accidents in Wisconsin
When another driver causes you injury in an auto accident, that person is responsible for paying for your damages. In the event of a lawsuit, the individual driver will be the primary defendant. But assuming that the defendant carries auto insurance (as all drivers are required to do in Wisconsin), their insurance company has a responsibility to step in and pay for your damages on their policyholder’s behalf. Accordingly, we often end up dealing directly with the other side’s insurance company.
In some instances, you may also be able to file a successful a lawsuit against your own insurance company, usually because they wrongfully denied coverage despite the terms of your policy. This might include claims for property damage or uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance.
