    Confidential Recovery

    Illegal U-Turn by Truck Driver Causes Serious Accident

    Our young client was severely injured when a City of Milwaukee Sanitation worker made an illegal U-turn on 101st Street in Brown Deer, Wisconsin. The driver attempted to swerve but a serious crash resulted in extensive personal injuries to our client.

    This case was complicated by Wisconsin immunity laws that limit liability for personal injury accidents for municipalities such as Milwaukee. In this case, our personal injury lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. were able to obtain maximum recovery from the City of Milwaukee truck driver, as well as insurance policy limits recovery from the car in which our client was a passenger.

    The compensation our client received helped pay for medical expenses, medical equipment and rehabilitation past and present. Because our client was a minor, we were able to obtain court approval for a maximum policy limits recovery and assure that funds would be available for her after she turned eighteen.

    Investigation Finds a Witness of Car Accident

    Our client was nine months old when she was seriously injured in a Wisconsin automobile accident. She was a passenger in a car that was t-boned by a pickup truck at 16th & National Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her mother was also injured and could not remember what happened in the car accident. Because this was rush hour, all of the potential witnesses had left the scene by the time the police arrived. There were conflicting stories between the drivers as to who had the red light and who had the green light.

    After our Milwaukee personal injury law firm was retained, we hired an expert to do a car accident reconstruction and had engineers evaluate the damages to the vehicles in order to determine how fast the drivers were going and which driver was negligent. That elusive witness, however, still held the key.

    This is what makes us different from other area law firms. Our Milwaukee auto accident lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. decided to stake out the bus stop at the intersection for several days to try to find people that may have seen the accident. Within several days, we were able to find not only one, but two witnesses that confirmed both the color of the lights and the excessive rate of speed that the colliding pickup truck was traveling at the time of the accident.

  • Defective Product

    Full Refund

    Recently our Milwaukee defective product injury lawyers at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. secured a recovery for a client who was injured while using exercise equipment. Our client was using an inversion therapy table, and while in an inverted position a weld failed causing the equipment to collapse. In the fall from the table, our client suffered head and back injuries.

    Our investigation revealed that the company had problems with similar equipment, which had been subject to a recall by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. We brought a claim against the company which distributed the equipment and its insurer, alleging that it had a duty to ensure that the equipment was provided to the public in a safe condition and free from defects.

    This case was resolved, prior to a lawsuit being filed. At the conclusion of the claim, the company picked up the equipment from the client’s home and gave a full refund!

  • Pedestrian Accident

    Confidential Recovery

    Child Struck By Car

    Represented a young child who was crossing a street in the middle of the block. He was struck by a vehicle whose driver claimed that he did not see the child and that he was unable to avoid the collision. The driver’s insurance company denied the claim and refused to make any payment. We were able to locate a witness who was traveling two cars behind the vehicle which struck our young client. That witness said that he saw the boy before he got to the street and then saw him attempt to cross the busy roadway. The witness said he slowed down because he was concerned that the boy would be unable to get across the street in time to avoid being struck. The witness said that the driver who struck the boy never slowed down and did nothing in any attempt to avoid striking the boy. After providing the witness information to the insurance company for the driver who struck our client, the insurance company resolved the claim for the maximum limits of insurance coverage available under the insurance policy.
