The Milwaukee Personal Injury Lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®

Every year in Milwaukee, thousands of unsuspecting people suffer injuries in preventable accidents. Unsafe stoves start dangerous fires. Reckless commercial truck drivers cause collisions. According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, injury is the leading cause of death for people under 44 in our state. Individuals are injured by all sorts of tragic accidents that never should have happened in the first place. Thankfully, if you have been injured by someone else’s negligence or their careless actions, you do have legal options. The skilled personal injury attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® have extensive experience fighting for financial compensation for our clients. Victims hurt by someone else are able to win monetary damages to pay for the costs of their injury.

Cases We Handle

At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, our dedicated legal team can help with everything from filing your initial claim to the trial or out-of-court negotiations. With the help of our network of trained investigators, medical professionals, and nationally recognized experts, our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys are prepared to take on the following types of cases:

People are socially obligated to act in a way that does not endanger others. Ignoring this implicit responsibility is unacceptable, and those who act negligently and subsequently injure other people can be held accountable for their actions.

The law allows victims to seek monetary compensation for injuries because you should not have to suffer due to someone else’s inexcusable actions. Often, injuries completely disrupt the victim’s life. For example, if you broke your arm because you slipped and fell on the wet floor of a grocery store, you would be facing more than an inconvenience. You would need a preliminary doctor’s visit and many more trips to the hospital for check ups and cast removal. You would probably also need several types of medication. Maybe you would even need extensive physical therapy to regain full use of your arm. Additionally, if you need your arm or hands for work, your job performance could be seriously affected. You could lose wages from missed work days during your recovery. You might not be able to pay your mortgage or other bills. On top of medical bills and lost work wages, you would also face an intense amount of physical pain and emotional suffering.

If you suspect that you were injured because of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or malice, you may be legally entitled to financial compensation. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, our personal injury attorneys are ready to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. Call us today at (414) 271-0900 to discuss your legal options with a knowledgeable professional.

Personal Injury Statistics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gather data concerning injuries of many different types. Their statistics reveal that people in the U.S. suffer from injuries due to a wide variety of causes. Unfortunately, even though injuries happen in widely diverse ways, a disturbingly large number of injuries have the same root cause—negligence. If you suffered a preventable injury, you may be able to obtain financial compensation from the person or group responsible. The skilled team of attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® has won massive damages for innocent people hurt by the reckless, negligent actions of car drivers, product manufacturers, careless doctors, and other accountable parties.

The CDC provides some shocking statistics concerning injuries nationwide. For example:

  • There were 68.2 million physician office visits due to injury in 2014
  • One person dies every three minutes because of an injury
  • 2.5 million people are hospitalized because of an injury every year

These general injury statistics tell a frightening story, but they do not explain how so many people are being hurt. Zooming in on the data for specific types of accidents reveals that vehicle collisions, dog bites, medical malpractice, and unsafe property conditions hurt many people. Those statistics include:

Tragically, many of these injury-causing accidents were probably preventable. When people exercise a due amount of care and attention, they can avoid accidentally harming those around them. All in all, it is likely that the number of innocent people injured each year would dramatically decrease if people behaved responsibly.

Examples of the Cases We’ve Handled

The attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® are second to none when it comes to their personal records and history of helping people in Milwaukee and all throughout Wisconsin. Not only are our attorneys some of the most qualified in the state, our many cases and positive outcomes speak for themselves. Some of our most prominent returns include:

  • A jury awarded $99 million to the surviving family members of ironworkers who were killed while working at Miller Park.
  • A family received $20 million when they came to us after a pipe fell off a defective rack and injured their child.
  • A child and their family were awarded $17.3 million following a surgery that ended up permanently disabling the child.
  • An amount of $16 million was shared by eight men injured in an explosion that took place inside a silo for a power plant and caused a fire.

Of course, we are proud of all instances in which we were able to secure a just reward for our clients and to us, the monetary goal is only half the battle. We pride ourselves in compassionate care and fervent work. No case is too complex for us to tackle nor against such a large entity that we backed down. We’ve helped clients hurt by their employers, manufacturers, and even their doctors. Some of these cases include:

  • A man who was injured by a seatbelt
  • A motorcyclist who was paralyzed during a race due to poor track conditions
  • A woman who suffered a brain injury due to aspirin
  • A man who was injured in a car accident because his rental car had defective tires
  • The family of a child who was injured due to a delay in delivery

Our dedicated attorneys have a long history of winning substantial damages for our clients. We understand that being injured can leave you and your family with a mountain of financial problems. Medical debt can pile up and is made worse by physical therapy, counseling, and the costs of medication. Moreover, many injured people are forced to miss time off work for recovery. For many people, that means losing the wages they rely on or need to pay back their medical debt. Additionally, injuries can cause immense pain and suffering, forcing you to change your lifestyle or your job. With the most board-certified trial attorneys in Wisconsin, we have the skills, experience, and know-how to fight for you.

Recoverable Compensation

In a personal injury case, there are often many variables. There is no easy way to answer how much your settlement or award could be without an in-person consultation. Basically, there is no one-size-fits-all standard for an attorney to follow when they don’t know the specifics of your case. In general, there are both economic and non-economic amounts you can receive. Examples of an economically recoverable amount include the cost of any medical bills or damage to property and can even apply to future amounts of money lost, in the form of time taken from work to recover. Noneconomic damages are a little bit trickier to pin down but include things like pain, suffering, and trauma. The specific numbers tied to these damages are less easy to discuss unless you were to call Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (414) 271-0900 to set up an appointment.

Is it worth it to take my personal injury case to court?

A lot of people assume that pursuing a personal injury will cost too much money and take too much effort. Even some individuals with a clear-cut personal injury claim avoid contacting an attorney because of the general assumption that the process will be too much of a hassle. Many of these people lose out on recovering substantial damages for their injuries. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we can talk you through the process of your personal injury claim before the legal process even begins. We will be clear and honest with you about whether or not we think you have a case. Our satisfied clients certainly do not regret taking the time to call and speak with us about their injury.

If I bring a personal injury case against someone, am I accusing them of a crime?

Not necessarily. Personal injury law belongs to the realm of civil law—not criminal law. You want the responsible party to pay you the money you need to cope with your injuries. You are not trying to punish them for a crime by, for example, sending them to jail. Sometimes a person might commit a crime while they injure you, but their criminal offense isn’t something that will be handled in your personal injury case. There would be a separate, criminal legal procedure for that.

How long can I wait to file a personal injury claim?

Typically, three years. That’s because Wisconsin state law sets a statute of limitations for a personal injury claim. Basically, that means you legally have a set amount of time to take legal action after you were injured. There are, however, some gray areas. What if you didn’t realize that your apartment walls were coated in lead-based paint, so your lead poisoning wasn’t diagnosed until after you moved out? If you suspect you were injured by someone else, you should check with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the statute of limitations.
