Average WI car accident settlement with uninsured drivers
"Average" settlement amounts don't exist when it comes to recovering damages for injuries from uninsured drivers. The size of your settlement or verdict depends on far too many factors to consider an average. If the uninsured driver is well off financially or there are other entities liable for your injuries, you stand a better chance of getting more compensation. The largest factor in determining how much you receive is the quality of your legal representation.
A settlement mill law firm's goal is just to run you through the process and get you to settle ASAP so they can get their check ASAP. Steve Caya's only goal is to help you get every penny you deserve for your pain and suffering. Steve has won many six and seven-figure settlements for his clients. Every case is handled on a no-win, no-fee basis, so you don't owe us anything unless you get compensation. Contact us today and we'll help determine the strength of your case. Want to meet in person but can't make it to our office in Janesville? We'll happily come to you anywhere in Wisconsin to discuss your case.

Compensation for damages with uninsured motorist coverage
The state of Wisconsin requires that all car insurance policies include uninsured motorist coverage (UM) of at least $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident for bodily injuries and $10,000 for property damages. If you're injured in a car accident with an uninsured driver, your own insurance policy will compensate you for injuries and damages up to the amount specified in your policy. This type of coverage can also help in the event you are hit by a hit-and-run driver.
While not required by Wisconsin law, underinsured motorist coverage (UIM) can help protect you if their insurance policy is not enough to cover your injuries. UIM insurance has increased minimum limits of $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident. This coverage can come to your aid when the cost of your injuries exceeds the at-fault driver's insurance policy's limits.
If your uninsured motorist policy or underinsured motorist policy can't fully compensate you for your injuries, you may want to consider a lawsuit. Steve Caya has helped many people injured in car accidents through this process and knows just where to look to get you help. By reconstructing the accident, employing top-notch experts and following every lead, he can uncover other potential sources of liability. With an experienced personal injury lawyer at your side, the amount of liability you're assigned in a car accident can be decreased substantially, increasing the amount of compensation you can receive for damages.
