How Do I Win an Injury Lawsuit in Wisconsin?

Steps to help win an injury lawsuit in Wisconsin

Our Wisconsin personal injury law clients come to us with many different sets of circumstances. Each case is unique.

While there is a no magic formula that will guarantee a good outcome, there is always a series of steps that you can take to build a strong case.

William Abel of LAW.TV recently wrote a very insightful blog called, “Five ways to win your personal injury lawsuit.”

These steps don’t guarantee a win, but they are a solid advice.

Abel recommends you:

Get Medical Treatment:
“The truth of the matter is that you may have pain and discomfort after an accident, but if you don’t get medical treatment, then it is easy for the defendant to paint the picture that you are not hurt.”

Be Consistent With Your Medical History:
“When filling out your medical paper work or speaking with your doctor/nurse, communicate your symptoms.”

Be Descriptive With Your Symptoms:
“When communicating your symptoms to your medical provider, specifically identify the type of pain you are experiencing.”

Be Accurate About Your Medical History:
“If you have had medical treatment to your low back before an accident and then suffered a new back injury from an accident, it is extremely important that you tell all of your doctor about your prior low back symptoms and treatment.”

Communicate With Your Attorney:
“Whenever you plan on seeing a new medical doctor or getting new tests or radiological studies, let your attorney know.”

If you’ve been injured and would like to discuss your case, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our personal injury attorneys in Janesville or Beloit.
