The personal injury attorneys at our law firm keep a close eye on the changing laws involving uninsured motorist coverage. Insurance companies keep trying to modify the laws so that there is less coverage for people who have been injured through no fault of their own.

  • We know how to read the fine print in insurance policies. The insurance company may tell you that you have no policy coverage if you were hit by an uninsured motorist. Generally, that is not true. Your own car insurance policy may provide the liability coverage you need to compensate you for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our lawyers will review your policy and explain your rights.
  • As a pedestrian or bicyclist, your car insurance can help. If you were injured by an uninsured motorist, an underinsured motorist or a hit-and-run driver, your car insurance is personal and portable — it will cover you in a motor vehicle accident even if you were not in a vehicle.
  • Know your rights — ask a lawyer who cares. The insurance company does not like to pay claims and may make it sound as if you are not covered. At our law firm, we keep abreast of new case updates to know the latest changes in the law, review all legislative updates, attend seminars about this subject and stay up-to-date on the latest statutes and regulations. We know how to find any and all coverage that is available to you.

If your insurance company says there is no coverage for injuries such as Neck and Back Injuries , Scars and Burns , Brain Injuries or Wrongful Death or if there is damage sustained in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, bring us your policy. Our attorneys can assess whether you have rights that are not clearly spelled out in your insurance coverage. New case law in Wisconsin provides that you must be given notice that you have the right to coverage in an umbrella policy.

Car insurance should protect you when you need it — even if you had the bad misfortune to be injured by an uninsured motorist.

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.
