Wrongful Death Claims
Our firm has helped clients whose loved one has been killed through tragic events in which another individual was negligent in causing the death. The emotional devastation of losing a loved one is extremely difficult. There is no way to repair the harm through a law suit. Our goal is to help families recover from the financial loss they face through losing their loved one’s lifetime earnings, and the countless ways in which the loss of the loved one will impact their family’s finances and quality of life.
Our firm has helped clients injured in auto accidents through no fault of their own to recover fair compensation for their injuries. We recognize that the injuries our clients endure impact many aspects of their lives: financial, work, and personal relationships. Our goal is to understand each of the ways our client has been impacted by the accident, and ensure that our client receives fair reimbursement to fully compensate them for the injuries they have suffered and how those injuries have impacted their life.
Dog Bite Cases
Each year, 4.5 million individuals are bitten by dogs. In some cases, dog bites can cause serious injuries and leave permanent scars. Under Wisconsin law, when dog owners are aware that the dog has previously bitten another person, and allow the dog to jeopardize the health and safety of others, the individual who is bitten a second or third time by the dog is entitled to twice the monetary damages. While sometimes the permanent scarring caused by dog bites cannot even be fixed by plastic surgery, we strive to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for life-changing injuries.
