Negligence must be proven in a personal injury case
Negligence is the basis for every personal injury claim. Was a person or entity responsible for the accident? Did someone behave recklessly? Under the legal definition of negligence, an individual must fail to behave with a level of care that someone can reasonably expect in that situation. Negligence can also be demonstrated by someone failing to take any action at all.
Personal injury litigation is not only for physical injuries
A personal injury lawyer can help you file a claim for other, non-physical injuries such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment in life, loss of wages, and the cost to replace or repair property that was damaged due to the accident.
Initial settlement offers for your accident are often not the best offers
Insurance companies will often offer a settlement right after an accident. These initial settlement offers are usually not the best offers and will not cover the entirety of the damages you have sustained. Have an experienced personal injury attorney review your settlement offer and discuss the level of compensation you may be entitled to recover. This will help you make the most informed decision possible regarding recovering compensation for your accident.
Is there a legal deadline for filing a personal injury claim in Wisconsin?
In Wisconsin, the statute of limitations for seeking damages from a personal injury is three years from the time of the accident. If you fail to meet this legal deadline, the court will refuse to hear your case and your opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries will be lost. In some situations, if you are unable to meet this deadline, a skilled personal injury attorney may advocate on your behalf.
What Are the Most Common Madison Personal Injury Claims?
What do you think of when you imagine a personal injury claim? A slip and fall accident, premises liability? There are many different types of possible claims, but the top ten most common are:
Each year, millions of Americans sustain injuries from car accidents. It is the most common type of claim year after year.
Slip and Fall
It may seem silly that you can sustain a significant injury due to a slip or fall, but the injuries can even be deadly. They can cause detrimental injuries to the neck, back, arms, legs, shoulders, and sometimes even heads.
This type of personal injury occurs due to the negligence of nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals. They most often arise when a medical professional fails to practice competent care.
Since society is not becoming any less violent, people are at a much higher risk of becoming a victim of assault. However, unlike most other types of personal injury, these are not usually a result of someone’s negligence but rather inconsideration.
Workplace accidents can arise when someone is forced to work in unsafe conditions, with malfunctioning equipment, or with insufficient training.
Although these are not the most common personal injury claims, but they happen often. These occur on people’s property when they are negligent and do not consider dangerous conditions.
Most products have strict rules and regulations to avoid injuring a buyer, although sometimes mistakes or malfunctions happen. This is when a product liability claim may come into effect.
Personal injury, again, is, not always physical. For example, a defamation claim can include personal humiliation, lost earnings, or lost earning capacity.
Thousands of construction workers are injured and even killed each year on the job. The physical demands of a construction job can cause an abundance of injuries. People who work these jobs are also exposed to dangerous materials, equipment, and substances daily.
Dogs are a man’s best friend, but you must remember that they are an animal. They can be unpredictable. You must use precaution when being around an animal, whether or not it is domestic.
