Car accidents are one of the most common causes of automobile accidents in Wisconsin. Regrettably, we see tens of thousands of people left with serious injuries as a result of collisions each year. Those harmed often require medical treatment, which may last for several weeks or even months after their accidents. Common injuries following collisions include:
- Herniated discs
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries

Unfortunately, the impact of motor vehicle accidents is often far-reaching. We see countless people forced to deal with overwhelming financial consequences as a result of their accidents. In many cases, victims have a significant amount of money on the medical care they need for the injuries they have suffered.
