Car Accident Lawyers Amery
Hudson, Wisconsin Motor Vehicle Accidents
Wisconsin car accidents can involve complex legal and contractual issues. Insurance adjusters will often attempt to speak with you or obtain recorded statements from you soon after an accident and before you have an opportunity to speak with a personal injury lawyer. While an insurance adjuster may tell you this is part of their customer service, they are really trying to make you do something that is not in your best interest. Insurance company employees are not there to help you. They are there to make or save money for their employer — at your expense.

Wisconsin is an at-fault state
In Wisconsin, liability insurance covers the driver who is responsible for the car accident. If you are injured because another driver was negligent, that driver’s liability insurance will cover your losses up to the maximum amount of coverage available. Sometimes, the person who caused the accident has insufficient coverage or no coverage at all. Under these circumstances, the losses you sustain may be covered by underinsured (UIM) motorist coverage or uninsured (UM) motorist coverage. These types of benefits may be available to you from any number of your own policies, or even the policies of the relatives you live with or the other policies owned by the driver who injured you and his or her relatives.
Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage
