Green Bay Personal Injury Lawyer

After an injury, you may be offered a quick settlement by the insurance company. That offer probably pales in comparison to the actual amount you’re owed. Don’t let the insurance company take advantage of you during a stressful and confusing time. Instead, call Green Bay personal injury attorney Brian Hodgkiss.

What You Get with Brian Hodgkiss

A close relationship with your attorney.

A team that wants to help you get your life back to normal. 

A law firm that handles everything on your behalf, so you can focus on getting better.

An attorney who never gives up or backs down.

20+ years of Experience

Brian has more than two decades of experience helping injured people get the money they deserve. That’s more than 20 years of fighting the insurance companies, learning the tricks they use when reducing or denying injured people’s settlements, and winning cases that other attorneys reject. 

There are many personal injury attorneys in Green Bay, but they don’t all take the same approach. Some firms refer cases to other law firms, and some hope to resolve cases quickly just to make room for the next one. 

Brian Hodgkiss Injury Lawyers makes you a promise: When you hire Brian, your attorney is Brian, and he will work relentlessly to get you the payment you deserve. 

Why Hire a Green Bay Personal Injury Attorney 

After suffering a serious injury, you face many physical and financial challenges. Insurance companies know how vulnerable an injured victim is after an accident, and they often make a quick offer hoping the injured person will accept it without question. However, that offer is rarely anywhere close to what the victim deserves. 

When you hire an experienced personal injury attorney, you’re getting an advocate on your side who knows the system and will fight to get you fair treatment and compensation. Your personal injury lawyer will calculate all the damages you face, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Property damage (if applicable)
  • Non-economic damages (pain and suffering)

After a serious injury, the stakes are high for your future financial well-being. Bills may keep piling up, and it may be weeks, months, or years before you can go back to work. When you accept an insurance company’s initial offer, you’re forfeiting your right to the full compensation you’re entitled to, both now and years down the road. 

Let us handle the paperwork, the correspondence, the case-building, the arguments, and the stress. You’ve been through enough—all you have to do after you call is focus on your health and recovery. Contact a Green Bay personal injury attorney at Brian Hodgkiss Injury Lawyers so we can help you explore your legal options. 

How We Handle Your Case

If you’re considering hiring a personal injury attorney in Green Bay, we suggest you contact our firm for a free case assessment. If you decide to hire us, and you want to move forward with a claim, here’s what you can expect from us. 

  1. We will begin gathering evidence to build your case.
  2. We will determine exactly how much money you deserve for your accident-related expenses.
  3. We will demand that the insurance company give you what you’re owed.
  4. If the insurance company and the at-fault party are willing to discuss payment, we’ll begin negotiations.
  5. If negotiations yield a settlement offer that meets your needs, we can accept the offer on your behalf.
  6. If the insurance company is unwilling to cooperate or offers a settlement that is less than satisfactory, we will take the case to court.
  7. Once a settlement or favorable verdict is reached, you will begin receiving payment in accordance with the terms of the settlement or verdict.
  8. If your case does not result in payment, you owe us nothing. 

Though most personal injury claims are resolved through settlements, we know that the only way to position a case for a favorable outcome is to prepare it for trial. This lets the insurance companies know that we aren’t afraid to take a case to court, if necessary. Simply put—when we take on a new claim, we do so with full intention of winning for our client, no matter what it takes.

What to Do After Your Injury

What you do in the moments, days, and weeks following your injury can have a big impact on the outcome of your personal injury claim. Here are some of the most important things to remember.

Document the incident that caused your injury.
  • If possible, take pictures of the scene of the accident, whether that’s a car wreck or a fall-related accident.
  • If someone is with you, and you’re unable to do this, ask them to take pictures for you.
  • If possible, ask any witnesses to give you their contact information.
Take care of your health
  • Seek immediate medical care as soon as possible after your injury.
  • If you are unable to work, do not attempt to do so.
Take your medical treatments seriously.
  • Follow all of your doctor’s orders.
  • Don’t miss medical appointments.
  • Don’t attempt to “power through” your injuries. Insurance companies will use it against you.
Keep records.
  • Keep copies of all bills, receipts, or correspondence regarding your injury.
  • You or your attorney will use these documents to establish the value of your claim.
Consider keeping an injury journal
  • In your journal, note both the challenges and the progress you make.
  • The journal will help establish a timeline for your recovery.

Don’t talk to the insurance company of the at-fault party.
  • You are under no obligation to speak to a representative of someone else’s insurance company.
  • If you’re contacted by a representative or insurance adjuster, refer them to your attorney and say nothing else.
Contact an attorney as early in the process as possible.
  • The sooner you contact an attorney, the more they can help you avoid common mistakes.
  • Your attorney can also help you with injury claim process, so you can focus on your recovery.
