Accident Investigation Process

No Fee Unless We Win

Serious accidents are especially important to be investigated quickly and thoroughly to find out why the accident occurred and who should be held responsible. Gathering every detail and examining every angle is essential to determining true liability.

During your free initial consultation, it may be determined that more information is needed. For example, if you feel your accident was caused by the recklessness or negligence of another party, an investigation is launched. It is not at all uncommon for legal professionals and insurance companies to hire their own independent investigators. Remember – we charge zero fees unless we succeed in your claim!

Situations that May Launch an Accident Investigation:

  • If your vehicle was struck by another driver who was distracted, speeding, or running a red light, their behavior should be investigated.
  • If a road sign is damaged, difficult to read, or missing altogether, your accident could be the result of negligence and should be investigated.
  • If you suffered or lost a love one due to medical malpractice, an investigation could determine breach of care or intent.
  • If a product manufacturer failed to note important safety instructions or potential hazards, an investigation may support a product liability case.

Quickly gathering key details is essential in a personal injury lawsuit, but managing those details in chaotic and sometimes tragic circumstances can be difficult. What’s left unknown or ambiguous shouldn’t limit a victim’s ability to be well represented from every angle.

Personal injury claims in Wisconsin must generally be filed within three years of an accident or discovery of an injury, but if you’ve been in an accident, we urge you to contact an injury attorney as soon as possible.

Before Contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer, You Should Know:

The insurance adjustor is on the insurance company’s side, not yours.

Some are aggressive and try to scare people into not making a claim or into accepting very little compensation. Other adjustors seem kind and helpful — and then use your own words to deny your claim. The bottom line: the less the insurance company has to pay out, the more incentive the adjustor has.

We will investigate to establish liability and damages.

Our law firm has extensive resources to investigate an accident and assess who was at fault, regardless of the accident type. We work with a range of investigators and experts whose expertise provides crucial information for our determination of a fair settlement value.

Our attorneys can explain your coverage and your rights.

If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company may fail to tell you about your rights under your own policy. We can also help you understand your medical coverage under your health insurance policy.
