Car Accident

Steering Clear of Roadblocks.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, remember that your involvement does not mean you are necessarily responsible.

An insurance company may tell you otherwise and find you automatically 10 to 15 percent at fault, simply because you were involved. It will try to resolve the issue as quickly as it can so you do not talk to an accident lawyer.

Don’t be rushed. The true valuation of a motor vehicle accident is based on its severity. Talk to us first. We have dealt with insurance companies many times before and we can help.

100% of what you deserve.

If you have been in an accident we can help you avoid the “10 to 15” percent myth the insurance companies would have you believe. Our vehicle accident attorneys will help you:

  • Replace income lost due to injuries
  • Pursue a fair settlement
  • Recover potential damages to your vehicle

Going head-to-head with an insurance company is no easy task. We can help you by leveling the playing field and helping you get what you deserve. To the insurance company, you are a case number, but to each accident attorney on our team, you are a person who needs help.

We receive no compensation or legal fees unless you receive compensation from the case. We carefully review your case and will sit down with you and discuss your circumstance, what you stand to gain, and what your next steps should be.

During our consultation, we will address the following issues:

  • Who was at fault
  • The severity of the case and what might it be worth
  • How to deal with questions from your insurance company

General Personal Injury

Healing from an injury that was not your fault.

A personal injury occurs whenever you have been injured through the negligence or intentional act of another party. It can be caused by a wide range of accidents or circumstances – the list is seemingly endless.

While no two accidents are the same, your injury may have resulted from:

  • Another person’s actions
  • A defective product
  • Poor working conditions
  • A car crash
  • A bicycling accident
  • A dog bite
  • A slip at the grocery store

Because all accidents differ, you need a personal injury attorney who will take the time to understand your accident and situation to ensure that you are appropriately compensated.

We are by your side.

A personal injury case can take time. We will help you deal with insurance companies, missed income, and medical bills. The first step we take in any personal injury case is to sit down with you and carefully review your claim – at no cost to you. We will help you determine if you have a case and let you know what your next steps should be. During your consultation, we will address:

  • How long a personal injury lawsuit may take
  • What your settlement could be worth
  • If there are other types of claims potentially involved (such as Workers Comp)

Worker’s Compensation

Replacing your income after a workplace injury.

Any time you are injured on the job it can lead to a workers compensation claim and potentially additional personal injury claims. Injuries can involve a wide array of accident types and situations. For example, you may have been hurt while operating a piece of equipment, a co-worker may have accidentally injured you, or you may have even been in a car accident while driving to a work site.

By and large, most employers will pay your initial claims. But when you have suffered a substantial injury leading to a long-term disability, that is when you may need a personal injury attorney.

Recovering your health and your income.

Many people believe that if they are injured, they will receive Workers’ Compensation and nothing else. The truth is you may be entitled to more. We can assist by:

  • Understanding the big picture, including how this injury will affect your life
  • Helping you receive other benefits, such as compensation for pain and suffering
  • Finding ways to help you restore your lost income

We have been through enough of these cases to realize that a workplace injury is not just about income or finding a workers’ compensation attorney. It is about putting your life back together and thinking about your future.

At no cost to you, we will carefully review your case and provide a free initial consultation with a legal assessment of the nature of your potential case and our recommended course of action.

Tractor or Farm Accident

Recovering financially and physically.

There are many potential risks to working in the agricultural industry such as farm accidents or tractor accidents. Accidents can involve hazardous machinery, toxic pesticides and chemicals, electricity, heavy equipment, and even farm animals.

If you have suffered a farm injury or agricultural accident, you may not know what to do. How will you pay the bills? How will you return to your normal life?

You're not alone if you do not know the answers to these questions. In fact, you might be focusing on your health, or that of a loved one, not legal action. That is where we can help.

Our attorneys want you to focus on what it takes to be healthy and working, while we focus on the legal issues. Farm-related accidents can get complicated. Our attorneys will:

  • Review your situation and injury
  • Determine responsibility for your injury
  • Use the proper legal strategy to ensure you have a solid case
  • Evaluate possible settlements

Our free initial consultation will provide you with a legal assessment of your circumstance, what you stand to gain and what to do moving forward. During this consultation we will address:

  • How much income you may be able to recover
  • What the next steps are in the legal procedures
  • How long the process may take

Product Liability

Occurring when you are harmed by a product not performing in the way it is advertised, or when its safety features do not effectively protect you, defective product injuries can happen at any moment. From burns due to a poorly manufactured hairdryer to an injury to a child from an unsafe toy, injuries due to defective products require legal attention after you seek medical care.

Why is immediate legal action so important? A strong case may be compromised if evidence of the defective product is not secured right away.

Find the answers specific to your injury.

We will help you wade through the steps in a defective product injury case by:

  • Offering you legal counsel every step of the way
  • Identifying the type of product that caused your injury
  • Establishing who is responsible for the injury
  • Navigating through the various state laws that may apply

When we work with clients, we focus on more than just the legal aspects of the case. We will help you manage your recovery and provide you with peace of mind.

The first step in any case is the initial consultation. We carefully review your situation, potential compensation and what your next steps should be. We do this at no cost to you. In fact, we do not receive legal fees until you receive compensation from your case.

During our consultation, we will address the following:

  • The probability of building a strong case
  • Can you recover any damages or compensation for your injury
  • How long the case may take

Wrongful Death

Helping you in your time of grief.

There are no words to describe the loss of a loved one. We understand that wrongful death is a very emotional and difficult topic for our clients.

There are many situations where a wrongful death claim can be a fair course of action. If you are wondering if your circumstance warrants a claim, we can help you find answers and begin the healing process.

Get your life back to normal.

Receiving compensation for your loss can help you begin to get your life back in order. Our attorneys may be able to help you:

  • Replace the income generated by a spouse
  • Provide the compensation you need to focus on healing emotionally and for your future
  • Recover the value of home services such as tutoring in the case of a stay-at-home parent

When we work with clients, we focus on the legal aspects of the case and support and help guide you through the process.

Our free consultation will provide you with a legal assessment of your circumstance, what you stand to gain and what your next steps should be.

During our consultation, we will address the following:

  • The strength of your claim
  • Any future settlements
  • How you prove wrongful death occurred
  • How long the process will take

Spinal Cord and Brain Injury

Madison Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Attorney

Each year, traumatic brain injury accidents affects nearly 1.7 million people, and spinal cord injury affects between 12,000 and 20,000. The emotional, physical, psychological, and medical costs of these injuries are profound. Because most of these injuries occur as the result of vehicle accidents, falls, or sporting accidents, many can potentially be traced back to someone else’s negligence.

If you or someone you love has experienced a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury and believe someone else’s negligence played a role, it is important to:

  • Preserve evidence surrounding the injury as early as possible as evidence can disappear quickly
  • Retain a personal injury attorney before speaking with insurance company providers in order to protect the integrity of your case

Our personal injury attorneys have helped numerous clients recover fair compensation for brain and spinal cord injuries. We are experts in:

  • Determining whether negligence has been a factor in your case
  • Strategically collecting relevant evidence to maximize the settlement value of your claim
  • Managing the negotiations involved with insurance companies
  • Making a dramatic difference in your settlement so that your attention can remain on your recovery
