Accidents happen every day, from the minor annoyance of a spilt cup of coffee to a fender bender in the parking lot. Unfortunately, however, some of these accidents end up causing serious injuries to others or can even be fatal, and in many cases, they were preventable. When someone you love has been killed in an accident that was someone else’s fault, we can help you understand what your options are.

Any time someone is killed in an accident, it is life changing for those who knew the victim, but when the victim was the primary financial supporter of the family or contributed a large portion of the family income, the accident aftermath can be both emotionally and financially devastating.

At Hertel Law, S.C., we deal with these types of cases on a regular basis and have honed our skills so we can provide you with legal advice that is specific to your situation. Whether you have questions about which expenses are considered by the courts to be related to the accident or what to expect from the other party’s insurance company, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you every step of the way.

If someone you love was killed in a car crash, slip and fall accident or as the result of medical malpractice, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death suit seeking compensation through the Wisconsin civil courts. We understand this that is a very difficult time and that it is easy to get overwhelmed and frightened about the court process or what the future holds, and we are here to help.
