Milwaukee Car Accident Lawyer
The Milwaukee Car Accident Lawyers of Gruber Law Offices
We understand that this is a difficult time for you. Dealing with an auto accident only makes life harder. Immediately following a vehicle accident, you may be disoriented and unsure of how to react. In some cases, it may even be difficult to determine who is at fault. You need an experienced vehicle injury lawyer by your side to make sure all of the facts and details of your auto wreck are properly and thoroughly investigated. Our car accident attorneys have successfully handled auto crash cases for many years and believe that we can assist you through this trying time.
There is a statute of limitations on claims for auto crash injuries, which makes the urgency of consulting a car accident attorney even greater. It is best that you consult an attorney BEFORE discussing your claim with the insurance company and absolutely before accepting a settlement offer. Contact us today, so we can help you immediately.
Choosing an Auto Accident Attorney
Some people think they can handle a vehicle case without legal representation. While it’s true that you are not required to hire an automobile lawyer, those that choose not to often receive very disappointing results. You need a lawyer to sort out the details, find out what you’re entitled to and stand against insurance companies that don’t want to pay. You deserve financial recovery, and a lawyer from our firm will get you there. An experienced lawyer knows how to get your a higher compensation amount than you would have gotten on your own.
Keep in mind that no two car crashes are alike. When seeking an attorney, consider their experience with your specific case type.
Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
Unfortunately, some drivers are not covered appropriately by insurance. In the event of a wreck, you may find that one of the drivers involved are uninsured or underinsured. If this unthinkable situation should ever arise, there is a chance your case can be saved by a well-versed attorney. We will advise you on how to begin your claim and take you through the steps to secure your compensation.
Drunk Driving Crashes
The Signs and Statistics of Drinking and Drinking
It’s an unfortunate fact that drunk driving is a considerable problem in the United States that often leads to devastating consequences. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the annual cost of drunk driving accidents totals over $51 billion and that almost 30 people every day die in alcohol related car crashes. The Office for Victims of Crimes reports that an estimated 30% of U.S. citizens will be involved in a drunk driving incident at some point during their lifetime.
While drunk drivers cost the people of Milwaukee so much in tax payer dollars each year, the biggest loss occurs when someone is tragically killed or suffers a serious and life-changing personal injury due to these drunk driving auto accidents.
Keep note and contact the police if you notice a vehicle that is:
- Stopping without cause or erratic braking
- Driving with headlights off at night
- Driving into opposing traffic on the wrong side of the road
- Signaling inconsistently
- Straddling the center lane marker
How to Get a Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
It is imperative to seek legal advice from a lawyer if you have been involved in a drunk driving accident, since the judicial process for treating this type of crash is far different than other wrecks, and you must get started quickly to ensure a fair settlement. A drunk driver will receive a much harsher sentence than a driver who was not intoxicated. At the same time, the injured party’s case value may increase.
If you have been hit by a drunk driver, seek professional representation immediately. Our attorneys are among the leading drunk driver lawyers in the state and can be reached at 1-888-855-9069.
Cell Phones and Driving Accidents
With all the new technology out, sometimes we think we can do it all: talk, text and drive. Unfortunately this is not true. If you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, make sure not to distract yourself with a mobile device. According to a recent study by the National Safety Council’s annual injury and fatality report, cellphones are said to have caused 26 percent of the nation’s auto accidents in the past year. Surprisingly, only 5 percent of these were due to texting and driving, and the rest involved people using a handheld or hands-free cellular device. Even though you may think talking on the phone is not as bad as texting, not focusing on the road in front of you is not safe. If you were involved in a crash with a driver who was distracted by their mobile device or any other electronic, make sure to contact us today. You shouldn’t have to pay for anyone else’s negligence and distractions on the road. A very important fact to know is that every time you drive and talk on your cellphone, your risk of being involved in a crash increases by 400 percent!
