Experienced Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawyers

An experienced personal injury attorney with a strong record of winning cases for their clients will provide you expert legal advice in all aspects of your case, from filing an insurance claim to receiving the medical care that you deserve. 

We Talk To The Insurance Company For You

We negotiate with insurance companies every day, so leave it to us to represent you in front of the insurance companies. We talk to them so you can focus on your healing and so they don’t push you around the way they do to many accident victims.

Advice On What To Do After Your Accident

Our attorneys will also advise you on things you may not think would affect your claim. For example, many personal injury attorneys will not tell you how dangerous it is to talk about your personal injury case on social media. Insurance companies have been known to hire private investigators to check the social media accounts of victims who have filed claims in order to stop fraudulent cases. 

The insurance company is concerned about saving their bottom line, not about your debt or losses stemming from the accident. Fraudulent claims can cost insurance companies millions of dollars, so they can sometimes be overzealous to determine if a claim is valid or not. If there are pictures of you online where you are smiling or appear to be just fine, they will argue that you are exaggerating your injuries for financial gain. However, it’s common for people to show their best selves online and not necessarily show the pain that they are feeling. You may be trying to smile to show your strength during this difficult time, or you may post about the accident to let friends and family know that you are okay. 

Only share details privately with loved ones, or ask your personal injury attorney about appropriate social media use while your claim is still in negotiations. 

The Settlement You Deserve

Most personal injury cases do not go to court and are settled through negotiations between the victim’s attorney and the attorney representing the insurance company. This is preferable to going to court because a trial could last months or even years, and there’s always a chance of losing a trial even with the best legal representation. Meanwhile, you will have medical expenses piling up and may be waiting a long time to receive a check. Although we prepare every case with the attention to detail as if it were going to trial, we negotiate aggressively on your behalf to get the best settlement possible as quickly as possible so that you can move on.

Types Of Cases We Handle

Not all attorneys share the same practice areas, which are areas of law that an attorney focuses their career on. You may know an attorney, but they may practice real estate law or can help you if you are in a terrible bind with your taxes. But when you have been injured, you need not only a personal injury attorney but one that has experience winning cases similar to yours. Agruss Law Firm has won millions for our clients in the following specializations of personal injury law.

Medical Malpractice

When a doctor or healthcare professional’s deviation from their profession's standards results in injury or harm to the patient, they can be held liable for their negligence in diagnosis, treatment, or health management. In order to prove medical malpractice, you must prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed, creating a duty of care that the health care provider owed to the patient. You must prove that the healthcare provider deviated from the standard of care that any other healthcare provider would’ve provided in the same situation, thus breaching their duty of care. Your attorney must also prove that this breach caused an injury which then resulted in damages. Medical malpractice cases we handle include:

  • Surgical errors
  • Dental malpractice
  • Hospice abuse and neglect
  • Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
  • Hospital negligence
  • Home care accidents
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Birth injuries

Premises Liability

Premises liability is the liability that a landlord, property owner, or manager has for any damages arising from an injury to a person who legally entered the property. Landlords and property owners are required to maintain a safe property that is free from potential hazards by hiring competent maintenance teams and promptly fixing problems that arise. Types of premises liability claims include:

  • Escalator accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Assault and battery
  • Slip and falls
  • Building code violation accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents

Dangerous Road Accidents

We represent victims injured by the following motor vehicle accidents:

  • DUI injuries
  • Rideshare accidents
  • Limousine accidents
  • Electric scooter accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Passenger injuries
  • Car accidents
  • Uninsured motorist accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Truck accidents

Product Liability

Designers, manufacturers, and retailers can be liable for damage caused by a product. A product could be defective by design, an assembly line mistake, or through failure to warn consumers how to use the product correctly. Product liability includes damages caused by the following:

  • Asbestos
  • Dangerous toys

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is when a person is killed because of another person or entity‘s negligence, recklessness, failure to act, or intent to harm. The individuals who can file a wrongful death claim in the state of Wisconsin are:

  • The surviving spouse or domestic partner
  • Minor children under 18 years of age who were financially supported by the deceased
  • Adult children of the deceased
  • The parents of the deceased
  • A personal representative of the deceased’s estate

A plaintiff in a wrongful death action can recover medical expenses, funeral expenses, and the deceased’s burial or cremation expenses. You may also be eligible to receive punitive damages.

We offer a free, no-obligation consultation and are available to you in Milwaukee if you have suffered losses stemming from:

  • Hazing and bullying
  • Child accidents
  • Boat accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Gas explosions
  • Sports and recreation injuries

Timeline For A Personal Injury Case in Milwaukee

Every case is different, and there is no set amount of time that a case will be resolved. Typically, the more the insurance company will have to pay out, the longer it will take to settle. This is unfortunate for victims of severe accidents who have suffered serious injuries that require extensive, expensive medical care. But even individuals who had only a little bit of property damage can find themselves defending their Injuries in front of an insurance company that doesn’t believe they are as hurt as they say they are.

Hire An Attorney

One way to better estimate your timeline is also the first step in filing a Milwaukee personal injury claim: schedule your risk-free, no-obligation consultation with an attorney from Agruss Law Firm. We encourage you to bring all documents related to your personal injury to this meeting so that we can give you the most accurate legal advice. Documents you can bring include:

  • The police report or incident report from the accident
  • Your medical bills
  • Your medical records
  • Notes that you have written regarding what happened, what occurred leading up to the accident, during the accident and the response from the liable party
  • Any copies of receipts of expenses regarding your case
  • List of witnesses and their contact information, if available

We also recommend that you have questions prepared to ask us. It is not uncommon for accident victims to interview with different law firms before they choose an attorney. We hope that you choose Agruss Law Firm, just like others who have given us a five-star rating on over 1,400 reviews. Among the questions you should ask a personal injury attorney include:

  • Have you handled a personal injury case like mine before? What were the results?
  • What issues do you see with my case?
  • How will you keep me updated on the progress of my case?
  • How do you charge for legal services?
  • What is my case worth? 
  • How long has it taken to resolve cases like mine in the past?

Investigation Into Your Claim

We start right away on your case by conducting an investigation. We review the documents you have provided, photos or videos from the accident scene, and eyewitness testimony. Additionally, we may call in expert witnesses to give a deposition. Expert witnesses are authorities in a specialized field whose knowledge, education, skill, or experience qualifies them to review the facts of the case and prepare a report based on their professional opinion. They can be called in to testify to help reach a decision by clarifying or explaining complex matters related to your case. Expert witnesses can be authority figures in accident reconstruction, medicine, or anyone with specific technical knowledge in a relevant field.

Negotiations

Your attorney will send the settlement amount in a demand letter, to which the insurance adjuster will respond. They may address questions of fault or ask why a particular treatment was necessary. Agruss Law Firm will respond to those arguments as well as any low counteroffers that the insurance adjusters provide.  We prepare all of our cases as if they will be scrutinized before a judge and jury, which increases the chances of getting how much you want to settle for. The insurance company may dispute whether or not the insurance policy covers the accident, who was at fault, the share of negligence, the extent of your injuries, and the medical treatment that you received. We will fight back harder for you.

Trial

We do our best to settle out of court to get the money you deserve as soon as possible. A trial could be lengthy and take years to resolve, but if we need to go to court for you then we are ready to aggressively fight for your rights.
