Milwaukee Uninsured Motorist Lawyers
A Milwaukee uninsured motorist lawyer helps accident victims who are injured by motorists who do not have car insurance or do not have sufficient car insurance to cover the damages caused in an accident. Wisconsin drivers must have insurance in place on their cars with limited exceptions. The minimum liability coverage is $50,000 for the death or injury of one person, $100,000 for the death or injury of more than one person and $15,000 for property damage. Wisconsin motorists also need to purchase uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage to protect themselves in case the driver at fault does not have any, or enough, car insurance or in case the motorist is hurt in a hit and run accident where the driver at fault is unknown.
Insurance companies do not like to pay uninsured or underinsured claims. While they have legal and ethical obligations to pay you according to the terms of your insurance policy, uninsured and underinsured claims are not good for their bottom line. Accordingly, it is important for you to consult with an experienced Milwaukee uninsured motorist attorney before entering settlement negotiations with your insurance company.
How a Milwaukee Uninsured Motorist Lawyer Can Help You
A Milwaukee underinsured motorist lawyer can help you negotiate with your insurance company and litigate if necessary. Your insurance company wants to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim because less money paid to you means a greater profit for them. Your Milwaukee underinsured motorist attorney has a different objective. Your attorney is representing you and wants to make sure that you receive a fair settlement for all of the damages that you incurred in your accident.
In order to help you receive a fair settlement, your Milwaukee underinsured motorist accident attorney will handle all communications and negotiations with your insurance company. Your attorney will ensure that the evidence supports your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any disability and disfigurement. If an agreement cannot be reached with your insurance company then we will file a lawsuit against your insurance company and litigate your claim.
In order to prevail in your negotiations with or legal claim against your insurance company you and your Wisconsin uninsured motorist accident lawyer will need to prove that:
- Your injuries were the fault of another driver;
- The other driver is either unknown to you (as in the case of a hit and run accident) or the driver lacks the requisite insurance required by Wisconsin law;
- Your insurance policy includes uninsured or underinsured coverage; and
- You are entitled to damages based on the evidence you present of your injuries to your insurance company.
