Change In Wisconsin Law Could Reduce Compensation For Injured Persons

The Wisconsin State Senate is currently considering a new law, known as Senate Bill 22, which would dramatically change how injured persons are compensated for their injuries. Wisconsin currently follows the “collateral source rule,” which forbids a person who causes an injury from introducing evidence that an injured person received payment for injuries from a “collateral source,” such as an insurance policy. For example, a driver who causes an automobile accident cannot introduce evidence that a person injured in the accident received insurance benefits. Now, lawmakers in Madison are considering changing this 100-year-old law, which could significantly reduce the compensation an injured person receives.

The Wisconsin personal injury lawyers of Samster, Konkel & Safran, S.C. strongly oppose any change in the “collateral source rule.” We believe that injured persons deserve maximum compensation for their injuries. We encourage you to contact your State Senator here, or your State Representative here, and join us in opposing this law.
