Wisconsin Car Accident Laws
Wisconsin is considered a modified comparative fault state. Under Wisconsin Statute § 895.045(1), this means that the contributory fault of a plaintiff does not necessarily prevent him or her from recovering damages, so long as his or her contributory fault was not greater than the combined tortious conduct of all other persons. A court will reduce any damages by an amount proportionately equal to the percentage of tortious conduct of the plaintiff.
Wisconsin requires all drivers to maintain automobile insurance policies that provide the following minimum liability coverage limits:
- Bodily injury or death — $25,000 for one person, $50,000 for two or more people;
- Property damage — $10,000; and
- Uninsured motorist coverage — $25,000 for one person, $50,000 for two or more people.

Representatives from the insurance companies for negligent motorists frequently attempt to contact victims very soon after collisions. In many cases, these agents will express concern and a willingness to fully compensate the injured parties. You should avoid taking these phone calls because, in truth, the representatives are usually hoping to ask seemingly innocent questions in which certain answers will be used against the victims in later legal actions.
Let our lawyers be your legal representation
