In this Racine, Wisconsin case, our client sustained injury after being struck in the rear by the other driver.  The insurance company tried to argue that the impact could not have caused the injuries and made a “final offer” of $3,000.  Attorney Dan Davis fought for the client and did not relent until the insurance company offered the full limits of the insurance policy, $100,000.  At Davis & Gelshenen LLP we don’t just accept the insurance company “final offer;”  we fight for our clients to obtain fair and reasonable results.

In this case, a family of three was crossing a road at an intersection. As traffic stopped to allow the mother and father, who were pushing their daughter in a stroller, to cross the road, the at-fault driver failed to stop, striking the family at approximately 40 miles per hour, throwing the father up onto the windshield and pushing the daughter into in the middle of the intersection. The force of the collision caused the father to suffer a shattered tibia and fractures of his L3 and L4 vertebrae, resulting in our client enduring surgeries and a lengthy recovery process. Attorney Nicholas Farina fought for our clients and recovered a settlement for the limits of the insurance policy for the father’s case. The cases for the mother and daughter also received favorable outcomes.

Scales-of-Justice-01

This D&G client initially hired a well-known Law Firm that advertises on television. When the insurance company denied her claim, that law firm decided the case would be too much work and dropped her. She turned to D&G for help, and Attorney Daniel Davis sued the insurance company, aggressively litigated the case, and ultimately forced the insurance company to make a reasonable offer to settle the case.

If you are injured in an accident and decide to hire an attorney, make sure you ask that attorney whether he or she will fight for you, even if the insurance company makes it difficult. At Davis & Gelshenen LLP, we fight for our clients, even when other law firms won’t.

Attorney Daniel Davis Interviewed for TMJ4 Feature Story About Diabetes and Automobile Accidents

TMJ4 asked Attorney Daniel Davis to assist them with the legal aspects of this feature story that aired on Monday, February 27, 2012.  Attorney Davis explained how the law treats car accidents caused by a driver’s incapacity due to sudden illness, most notably Diabetes.  Click on the link below to see the story.

Following is a brief exerpt from the story:

So when and how do crashes like these turn into a criminal case? Unlike a case of drunk driving, or other negligent activity, diabetes and other medical causes are hard to prove. Dan Davis is with Davis & Gelshenen law firm in Milwaukee.

He explains, “When it’s caused by something like illness without forewarning, it can be be more traumatic because there’s nobody to blame.”

Davis is a personal injury lawyer, and represents people injured in auto accidents. “[I] help people get their lives back together after something like this happens.”

He has handled crashes involving medical conditions before.

“It all comes down to doing the research, finding the medical history of the person, whether or not this is something that’s happened before, or whether they were experiencing symptoms close in time to the accident,” he says.

Davis says the burden of proof is on the driver with the illness to prove the attack came on without forewarning. But he adds, “Certainly, if an illness comes upon you without warning, and you cause an accident you shouldn’t be held responsible for it.”

What to Do After a Car Accident

A car accident can be a very traumatic event.  Stress and injuries may affect your ability to think clearly.  How you react to the accident and the information that you obtain can be a critical element in your case.  After an accident:

  1.       Be careful.  If you are in severe pain, wait for paramedics to arrive to assess your injuries.
  2.      Speak with other drivers and witnesses involved only to obtain names, addresses and telephone numbers.  Do not discuss the accident with other drivers or witnesses.
  3.      Make sure that you acquire each driver’s automobile insurance information including the name of the person insured on the vehicle, the company’s name and telephone number if known.
  4.      Contact the police to make an immediate report of the accident and remain at the scene until after an officer arrives.
  5.       Cooperate with the police in preparing an accident report.  After the accident, photograph the exterior and interior of the vehicles involved in the accident.
  6.       Do not fill out or sign any insurance documents, or provide recorded statements without first consulting with a lawyer.
  7.       If injured, consult with a physician as soon as possible.
