Milwaukee Car Accident Attorneys

For more than 75 years, Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® has been the trusted name for individual who has been injured in a car accident in Milwaukee and across the great state of Wisconsin. Our dedicated team of attorneys have time and again proven their commitment to helping those who have been harmed by the negligent actions of another party, and our long track record of success speaks for itself. What sets us apart from other firms and has allowed us to become one of the most storied and largest law firms in the state is our strong experience, vast resources, and our dedication to each and every one of our clients.

According to statistics from the Wisconsin State Department of Transportation, 588 people died on Wisconsin roadways in 2016. So far in 2017, reports show that 324 people have lost their lives in accidents in our state. The causes of these accidents range from speeding, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted driving, and numerous other reasons that ultimately resulted in serious accidents.

At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we understand that serious accidents have wide ranging and long lasting effects on the individuals involved and their families. If your loved one has lost their life on the road due to the reckless or negligent actions of another person, you may be forced to deal with the sudden loss of companionship, financial support, and solace that you never expected to lose. In the event of an accident that results in serious injury to the individual or individuals involved, the victim and their family often face mounting medical expenses, lost wages or ability to work, and residual pain and suffering long after the accident.

We firmly believe that victims should not be forced to pay the consequences for the reckless actions of another person. Far too often, people do not consider the effect their behavior may have on others, and nowhere is this truer than behind the wheel. Whether the accident was caused by speeding, failing to observe a safe following distance, texting or using apps on their phone and in-vehicle devices, or driving under the influence, the responsible party should be held accountable for injuries they cause. That’s where the team of Milwaukee car accident lawyers at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® comes in, and that’s where our experience and commitment are the most valuable to you. There is no fee for your consultation, so email us through our website’s contact form, chat with us live on our site, or call us directly at (414) 271-0900 today.

Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Following a serious car accident, individuals and their families are faced with one of the most important decisions of their lives; whether to hire an attorney and which attorney is best suited to handle their case. There are many factors that affect this decision, including the experience of the firm, the resources they have, and how they treat you as a client.

Additionally, if you have been injured in an accident with an 18-wheeler, van, or other large commercial vehicle, you want a firm that is not afraid of taking on a large corporation or their deep-pocketed insurance company’s lawyers. If your injury was caused by a defective seatbelt or other vehicle defect, you want a firm that has experience holding the manufacturers accountable for their negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Following a serious accident, you undoubtedly have questions about your rights and how the legal process works. We are committed to helping you understand your rights according to Wisconsin law and we know that the process can often be confusing. That’s why we’ve provided the answers to some common questions below:

How Much Is My Case Worth?

While the specific value of any car accident case depends on many factors, including the cause of the accident, the seriousness of the injuries to the victims, and the lasting cost of treatment, rehabilitation, and associated costs, there are some common expenses and losses that our firm will fight for on behalf of our clients. These include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Necessary medical equipment
  • Occupational therapy
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Pain and suffering

It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the details of your claim. Our free case evaluation will help determine the next course of action and together we can formulate a plan for your car accident claim. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, we will be able to identify what type of compensation you may be owed and can get started on your case.

Why Is It Important to Seek Compensation?

For most individuals who are injured in a car accident, the majority of expenses are not covered by their insurance policy. While certain medical expenses may be covered, others like lost wages, groceries, bills, and ongoing treatment often are not. What’s worse, is that a staggering number of people who have been hurt in an accident find themselves forced to continue to work to support themselves and their families, often while still suffering serious pain as a result of the accident.

You do not have to suffer the consequences of the accident alone, nor should you be forced to work through pain or pay for expenses that should be the responsibility of the negligent party. That’s why it is important to seek compensation after a serious accident.

What Do I Need to Do to Get Started with My Claim?

Simply call us to get started with your claim, and we’ll handle everything. Time is a factor following a serious crash, so it is essential that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to make sure that evidence is still fresh and details of the case can be effectively gathered.

Accident Statistics in Milwaukee County

In Milwaukee County alone, there were 24,938 crashes reported in 2016. These numbers have been steadily rising each year (likely due to increased population and traffic density) since 2011, during which there were a reported 19,849 crashes. Of those accidents in 2016, 73 accidents resulted in a fatality. So far in 2017, there have been 53 fatal car accidents, indicating that Milwaukee County is on pace to meet or exceed that total for the year.

While state authorities have put tremendous effort behind public safety initiatives aimed at reducing fatalities on our state’s roads including “Zero in Wisconsin”, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that as long as people are behind the wheel, some individuals will inevitably fail to act in a safe and responsible manner. When this happens, accidents occur and people will suffer the consequences. A tragic example of this comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association statistics that show in 2015, of the 35,092 people who lost their lives in fatal crashes across the U.S., 27% of those killed were involved in a crash involving a speeding driver.
