In Appleton, Wisconsin, victims of car accidents may be awarded both economic and non-economic compensation. Economic compensation covers expenses that came to be as a result of the car accident. They include loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, physical therapy, medication, cost of long-term care, etc.
Non-economic compensation does not usually have a defined financial value. It refers to the mental and physical trauma the accident inflicted on the victim. They include pain and suffering, disability or permanent scarring, loss of enjoyment of life, etc. However, there is one thing that may put a hitch in our stride and that is if you are partially at fault for the accident. The state of Wisconsin follows a system called the ‘modified comparative negligence rule’. This states that if you are found more than 50% at fault, you will not be able to receive compensation.
But if you are less than 50% at fault, you are able to receive compensation. The catch is that your percentage of fault will be deducted from the amount of compensation awarded. That means that if you were awarded $100,000 and was found 10% at fault, you only receive $90,000. In the state of Wisconsin, there is no limit to the amount a victim can receive as non-economic compensation. This means that our lawyers can fight to get you the maximum amount of compensation your injuries deserve.
