Yes, you can file a lawsuit if you are injured in a pedestrian accident in Wisconsin. If the accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of the driver, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
To file a lawsuit in Wisconsin, you have a limited period of time from the date of the accident so it’s important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the accident, as there may be other time limits that apply.
To succeed in a lawsuit, you will need to prove that the driver was negligent or reckless in causing the accident, and that this negligence or recklessness was the direct cause of your injuries. This can be a complex process, and it’s important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
In some cases, the driver’s insurance company may offer a settlement to avoid a lawsuit. However, it’s important to consult with an attorney before accepting any settlement offer, as it may not fully compensate you for your losses. An attorney can help you understand your legal options and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.
