Menomonie, WI Personal Injury FAQs

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

The best way to find out if you have a personal injury case is to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer for a free consultation.

Until then, here’s a rule: If you got hurt in any accident or incident in Menomonie, and think someone else could have, and maybe should have, taken reasonable steps to prevent it from happening, you may have a personal injury case.

An insurance company told me that I do not need a lawyer to get paid for my injuries. Is that true?

Yes and no. It’s always your choice whether to hire a lawyer. But in our experience, it’s almost always a big mistake to try to handle your personal injury case without one.

Insurance companies tell you that you don’t need a lawyer because they want to pay you as little money as possible. They know that a lawyer will fight to get you every single penny you deserve, and that usually results in them paying more money than you would get if you went it alone.

We strongly urge you to connect with a personal injury lawyer. It’s the most reliable way to get the maximum compensation available.

When do I need to start a personal injury case?

Under Wisconsin law, most personal injury cases must start within three years of the injury. But some may need to start within just a few months. Missing the deadline for starting a personal injury case will usually mean losing your rights to compensation.

Because the stakes are so high, the best time to start your case (by contacting an attorney) is right now. With every day that passes, a personal case can become harder to prove, which directly translates into less money in your pocket to compensate you for what you’ve lost.

Don’t sit on your rights. Get started immediately to meet critical deadlines and to give yourself the best chance of securing maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.

How much money can I get for my personal injury?

That depends largely on the type and severity of your injury. Generally speaking, the worse the injury and the greater its impact on your life, the more money you can reasonably demand as compensation for it.

The potential value of your claim can also depend on some practical considerations. To get the most out of your rights, you will need a skilled lawyer who knows how to collect and present the evidence necessary to prove your claim and your damages. Always seek out a lawyer with an established track record of getting results in personal injury cases like yours.

Also, the amount of money you can obtain for a personal injury can depend on the financial resources of the party who owes you damages. That’s another reason to hire a skilled personal injury lawyer right away. Experienced attorneys know how to investigate cases and identify all potential sources of payment so that a party’s financial constraints do not limit the amount you recover.

What can a personal injury claim pay for?

Every personal injury case in Menomonie differs.

But in general, by taking legal action against the party or parties at fault for your personal injury, you can often recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain, suffering, and loss of quality of life

In some cases, you may also have the ability to ask a court to award you punitive damages, which serve to punish the at-fault party for malicious conduct or an intentional disregard of your rights.

How much does a personal injury lawyer cost in Menomonie?

Experienced personal injury attorneys in Menomonie offer free consultations to new clients and work on a contingent fee basis. So, it costs you nothing to meet for the first time with a lawyer to learn about your rights. And if you decide to hire the attorney, the attorney will usually get to work without charging you a penny upfront. Instead, any payment comes out of money the attorney succeeds in securing on your behalf.

In other words, a personal injury attorney only gets paid if you get paid.

How long will my personal injury case take?

The duration of a personal injury case can vary widely, from just a matter of weeks to a year or more. Numerous factors play into the timeline of a case, including its factual and legal complexity, the amount of dispute over liability and damages, and the number of parties involved.

To bring your case to the fastest possible resolution, take the all-important first step of contacting a skilled personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

What do I do if a claims adjuster for the other party in my personal injury case contacts me?

Be very, very careful. Talking to an insurance adjuster can put your valuable rights at risk.

In most instances, the best course of action is to decline to give any statement to an insurance company that represents the other party in your case. Instead, refer the adjuster to your personal injury attorney or contact an attorney who can interact with the insurance adjuster on your behalf.

Will I have to be a party or a witness in a trial?

Probably not. Most personal injury cases in Menomonie settle out-of-court before any trial happens. But not always, which is why you should always hire a personal injury lawyer who is a proven winner in and out of the courtroom.

Even if your case doesn’t go to trial, however, the chances are that you may have to give a sworn statement and answer questions about your accident and injuries. A skilled personal injury lawyer can prepare you for that part of the process and stay by your side to protect your rights.
