How to Choose a Car Accident Lawyer in Wisconsin

If you’ve suffered injuries in a car accident someone else caused, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and pain and suffering. A Wisconsin car accident attorney can help you seek the compensation you deserve, but it’s important to know how to find the right lawyer for you.

Personal Injury Focus

An attorney who focuses primarily or even exclusively on personal injury cases will be able to support you best due to their experience handling similar claims. They’ll be familiar with the unique qualities of car accident cases and know how to thoroughly investigate your accident to uncover the evidence and identify all liable parties.

Additionally, a Wisconsin car accident lawyer will have a deep understanding of state laws and how they affect personal injury claims. They’ll be well-equipped to advocate for your rights and pursue maximum compensation for you.

Successful Track Record

You also need an attorney with a track record of successfully securing compensation for their clients. Insurance companies have a profit motive, and they have powerful legal teams that will be fighting against delivering the compensation they owe you. If your attorney consistently wins favorable settlements for their clients, you’re more likely to have a successful outcome.

Winning a settlement is not a given — it requires hard work, skill, time, and a commitment of resources. An attorney who understands what it takes to win has that understanding due to years of experience fighting on behalf of clients in situations similar to your own.

Trial Experience

The vast majority of car accident claims don’t wind up anywhere near a courtroom. Most parties reach a settlement out of court. Nevertheless, having an attorney with trial experience can benefit you in a number of ways. For starters, they’ll always prepare for the possibility of a trial, even if they’re confident in their ability to negotiate a favorable settlement. This means that if your case does go to trial, you’ll be entering the courtroom from the strongest possible position.

A trial attorney will also be a skilled negotiator. A car accident lawyer with trial experience will be able to use their negotiation skills to apply pressure to insurance companies and opposing counsel in pursuing the compensation you deserve.


Finally, you need to feel comfortable with your attorney. You’ll be working closely together, and you need to be able to trust that they have your best interest at heart. An attorney with whom you can speak freely and share both information and feelings — and who makes you feel heard and understood — is one you can count on to represent you effectively in your car accident claim.
