Insightful Car Accident Attorney

Safety laws and regulations are put in place to protect people on the road and in the community. Living in Western Wisconsin, you know that Highway 53 and I-94 are particularly dangerous. When drivers fail to follow those rules and others are hurt as a result, they can be held accountable.

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident caused by another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, wrongful death, or other damages. The Chippewa Valley car accident firm of Hertel Law, S.C., can help you obtain maximum compensation for your losses.

Getting started with an attorney after your car accident is important. Call us at 715-598-2761 to make an appointment.

We Understand Insurance Company Tactics

If you were seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence or carelessness, that person’s (or entity’s) insurance company will be interested in you, but not because it cares about what happened to you or your family. Claims adjusters, lawyers and other insurance company representatives will work very hard to deny or minimize your injury claim, even when they know their insured was to blame for the injury. They may try to offer you a small settlement, get you to sign papers or ask you for recorded statements. We tell our clients not to do any of those things until they talk to their lawyer.

If you or a family member is thinking about pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, you will benefit from having an attorney who understands insurance company tricks and tactics — and who will fight for you and your family. The firm of Hertel Law, S.C., is here to work for you.
