Most Common Wisconsin Personal Injury Claims

personal injury

If you were injured because of someone else’s negligence in Kenosha, WI, you don’t have to pay for your medical bills. File a personal injury claim against the negligent party and get the compensation you deserve.

Wisconsin recognizes comparative negligence for personal injury claims. This means that the negligent party may only have to pay a portion of the claim if you are found to be equally careless. In this case, you need dedicated Wisconsin personal injury lawyers on your side who can ensure you don’t pay more than you have to.

Common Wisconsin Personal Injury Claims

Some of the most common personal injury claims in Wisconsin include the following:

Car Accidents

Car accident personal injury claims are the most common ones in Wisconsin and the nation in general. Millions of citizens are injured in these accidents every year, and many result from negligent drivers. Most victims file charges so they can get compensation to cover their injuries.

Medical Malpractice

When a surgeon or healthcare practitioner’s mistake leads to patient injuries or death, they can be sued for medical malpractice. These mistakes are often the result of negligence. While these cases are some of the most complicated you can face, you can prevail with aid from competent Wisconsin personal injury lawyers.

Slip and Fall Accidents

If you slip and fall on public or private property and injure yourself, you can file a slip and fall personal injury claim against the owner. These accidents increase during the winter, but they are pretty standard on neglected properties. To recover damages for this claim, you need to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the conditions that caused the accident. In other words, they have a duty of care which they violated. In this case, they are liable for damages.


Assault is one of the few personal injury claims that are not the result of negligence. However, you can still file a claim against it or an assault claim as per your attorney’s advice.

Dog Bite

Dog owners are duty-bound to ensure other people are safe from their pets. If you or your child sustained injuries from a dog attack, you could recover damages for them from the owner.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home owners and staff have a duty of care for their elderly residents. If you think your elderly relative was abused or neglected by them, that duty has been breached, and you can file a personal injury claim against them to recover damages.
