Waunakee Car Accident Lawyer
Waunakee, Wisconsin is a village of just over 12,000 located about 13 miles north of Madison. Due to its proximity to the state capital, many residents of Waunakee commute into Madison every day.
Traffic around the 160 acre Waunakee Business Park can get congested during morning and afternoon rush hour.
In May of 2013, a 59-year old man was killed at the intersection of Highways 19 and 113 when another driver at a stop sign pulled out in front of him. The crash was so intense that one car was engulfed in flames. In August of 2014, there was a fatal accident just east of Waunakee on Highway 19. In that accident, a man driving north on River Road failed to yield at a stop sign to a semitrailer heading west on Highway 19 and was killed in the ensuing collision. The truck that hit him erupted in flames and came to a halt in a field. The truck driver escaped without injury. Accidents along this stretch of Highway 19 occur with alarming frequency. DOT records show there have been 19 accidents at this location from 2009 through 2014. Five of those accidents involved serious injuries.
Warshafsky Law vs. “Settlement Mill” Law Firms
It’s a little known fact outside of legal circles, but the insurance companies accident victims in Waunakee face off against in court value their claims on the quality of the lawyer representing them. Unfortunately, victims of serious or fatal auto accidents don’t really know what to look for in a law firm and end up with what is known in the industry as a “settlement mill.”
These “settlement mill” law firms typically handle an extraordinary number of auto and motorcycle accident cases throughout Waunakee and the greater Dane County area. They are able to do this by negotiating a settlement with the insurance company of the party you are suing. The trouble is, insurance companies know how these law firms operate and know they can get away with lowball settlement offers. They know most of these attorneys rarely even enter a courtroom and have precious little interest in doing so. It’s so much easier to just take their juicy cut of a settlement check and move on to the next unfortunate accident victim. You, the accident victim, may get a settlement check quickly, but it is rarely ever anything close to the compensation you deserve for your injuries. In legal terminology, it’s what we call a raw deal.

Time is of The Essence
Wisconsin has a statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits. You have three years from the date of your auto or motorcycle accident to either settle your claim or file a lawsuit. If your claim involves a municipality, such as Dane County or the city of Waunakee, you are required to notify them of your injuries in writing within 120 days of your accident and provide them with notice of your injury claim prior to filing a lawsuit. Obviously, the sooner you contact the Madison personal injury attorneys of Warshafsky Law, the sooner we can attend to the legalities and start preparing your case for trial.
