Wisconsin Car Accident Lawsuits

A car accident can quickly result in life-long repercussions. That’s why the state of Wisconsin has certain laws in place, protecting victims’ rights to file a lawsuit and seek compensation.

Wisconsin relies on fault to determine liability and compensation after car accidents. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to investigate and build your case to maximize your chances of success and, ultimately, recovery.

Types and Causes of Car Accidents

There are many ways in which a car accident can occur. We’ve handled our fair share of accident types, from head-on collisions to intersection strikes and rear-endings. Many of these incidents are caused by:

Distracted Driving

Whether a driver is listening to music too loudly or rummaging in their bag, they should be held responsible if their distracted behavior results in someone else’s pain and suffering.

Texting While Driving

Phone-related distractions are increasingly involved in devastating automobile accidents. If you were struck by someone who was texting or using their phone while driving, seek justice for their carelessness.


Every driver on the road is obligated to follow certain safety rules and state laws. If a driver chooses to or fails to follow these regulations, we’ll hold them accountable for their actions.

Drunk Driving

Too many Wisconsin car crashes involve intoxicated drivers. At Mahony Law, we have zero tolerance for drunk drivers who endanger others. We’ll help you and your loved ones secure what you’re owed.

Drowsy Driving

Drowsy driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving. Thousands of drowsy-driving crashes happen every year, causing serious injuries and fatalities. If the at-fault driver in your accident fell asleep behind the wheel, you deserve to be compensated.

Reckless Driving

It doesn’t matter if it’s road rage or dangerous lane changing – reckless driving behavior places others on the road at risk for injury and these actions shouldn’t go unchecked. Our car injury attorneys will ensure affected victims get what they deserve.

Fault determination after car accident

How Is Fault Determined in a Vehicle Accident?

Fault isn’t always crystal clear in lawsuits – especially those involving auto accidents. The responsible party may try to deflect their liability and blame you for the accident, even if you are innocent.

We’ve seen all of these arguments before and anticipate these defenses when investigating and building your case. Our experienced legal team will investigate all potentially liable parties, including the at-fault driver’s insurance company and employer. When necessary, we’ll enlist the help of accident reconstructionist experts to determine who truly bears responsibility for the accident.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents

    In the state of Wisconsin, the statute of limitations for a car accident claim is three years from the date of the accident, unless the accident resulted in a death, in which case you only have two years. This means that any action for damages to your body, property, or life must be taken to court within these time frames.

    An experienced car accident attorney will help you understand exactly what kind of compensation you deserve. Even if both drivers are insured, the insurance company may try to shortchange what you’re owed as a victim. We’ll ensure that doesn’t happen – and take them to court, if necessary.

    The length of a car accident lawsuit can vary significantly, depending on the circumstances and complexity of the accident. Some take a few months to resolve while others stretch on for years. It all depends on the duration of the case investigation, trial length, insurance negotiations, number of parties, and the settlement collection timeline.

    Yes – you may still be eligible for compensation, even if you were partially to blame for the accident. Of course, your compensation will depend on the extent of your involvement in the accident.

    If you’re not sure who was to blame for your Wisconsin car accident, speak with our car crash lawyers. We’ll help you understand all of your legal rights, as well as your role in the incident.

    To understand if you have a car accident claim on your hands, you’ll need to determine if another driver was at-fault (at least partially) for your damages or injuries. Our Wisconsin attorneys will review your incident to determine its strength, then guide you toward the best course of action.
