“My son was badly hurt when he was hit while riding his bike. The insurance company said he ‘darted out’ and denied the claim. I got letters from a dozen Milwaukee lawyers. Someone I trusted recommended K&P. They immediately investigated and sued. They hired experts and won the case. I can’t thank them enough.”

“I was injured when struck violently from behind by a drunk driver. I spoke with Attorney Keberle personally the first time I contacted his firm and he worked on my case for more than a year. He did a great job demanding fair compensation and ultimately got me a very fair settlement”
“I was seriously injured and flown flight-for-life. Instead of hiring someone from Milwaukee, I chose Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg, LLP. I can’t imagine being better represented. They are respected, fought every step of the way, went to the Supreme Court and ultimately won my case.”

Washington County Car Accident Lawyers
Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg Is Respected throughout the State of Wisconsin As Experienced Washington County Car Accident Lawyers.
Motor vehicle crashes are among the most common injury-causing events. Statistics show that over 6 million car crashes occur in our nation each year. Doug Keberle, Dan Patrykus and Mike Laufenberg are experienced Washington County car accident lawyers who represent clients injured in car crashes throughout the state of Wisconsin. They know that people injured in car crashes are suddenly forced to deal with health care providers, medical bills, surgeries, lost wages and job insecurity — usually due to no fault of their own. Those injured in car crashes know better than anyone that their injuries could have been avoided if simple common sense and caution had been used by the other driver.
Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg believes that the at-fault driver’s insurance company must be held accountable. Insurance companies too often look for excuses not to pay what is fair. We fight insurance companies for car crash victims.
Common Causes of Car Crashes
A driver’s failure to operate his car with common sense is called negligence. Some of the more common causes of car crashes are:
• Distracted driving – With the onset of technology, drivers are doing more and more in the car instead of exercising caution and watching the road. Reading text messages, composing emails, taking phone calls, setting radio stations or being distracted with music can all be directly related to the cause of a crash and can be negligence for which an insurance company is responsible.
• Driving Under the Influence – Despite all of the efforts to educate everyone about the dangers of drunk driving, it is remarkable how often that these crashes still occur. Operation of a 1500 lb motor vehicle at 65 mph is dangerous enough without adding impaired judgment and slowed reaction time into the mix. An intoxicated driver can take the life of an innocent operator or passenger in an instant.
• Reckless Driving – Drinking and distractions are not always needed to lose control of a car. Sometimes deliberately reckless behavior of operators is enough. Driving at speeds in excess of reasonable speed limits can cause catastrophic injuries. The driver who carelessly changes lanes without warning, or attempts to make turns at too fast a speed, or even drives after inadequate sleep endangers the lives of everyone else on the road.
Avoid Talking to the Insurance Company for the Liable Party
If you seek compensation from the liable party in your car accident, then you are going to have to deal with their insurance company. It is likely that you are going to get a phone call or a visit from the liable party’s insurance company right away after the accident. They will be looking to get a recorded statement from you about the accident.
You should never give the insurance company a statement of any kind before you talk to a skilled Washington County car accident lawyer. We urge you to let your lawyer take over this communication so that you can be protected from the insurance company; if you say something wrong, you could have your compensation reduced or even eliminated.
Washington County Car Accident Statute of Limitations
When you have a Washington County car accident lawyer on your side, it can be very helpful to your case. You should not wait to talk to a lawyer. In Wisconsin, your statute of limitations, or the time in which you are permitted to pursue compensation, is three years from the date of the accident. If you wait until the week before this time runs out, we may not be able to help you. If you wait past the three years, you are no longer eligible for compensation. The best choice you can make is to call right away to get help from a lawyer.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk Drivers Cause Serious Injuries to Innocent People.
Although citizens of Wisconsin often hear that the state is cracking down on drunk drivers the reality for those who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents is a life changing experience. Innocent families and operators who take the utmost in precaution cannot get out of harm’s way. No matter how safe a driver you are the accident and often a devastating accident has occurred.
Attorney Keberle, Patrykus and Laufenberghave represented innocent victims and families for over 25 years against driver’s charged with OWI and their auto insurers. We have participated in the civil and criminal processes that are in place to obtain restitution, retribution and ultimately just compensation for our clients. We have worked closely with MADD (our states Mothers against drunk drivers) to remove drunk drivers from the road and to obtain maximum compensation for the victims of these accidents. Drinking and driving intoxicated and causing serious injury we believe is wilful, wanton and punitive conduct. Wisconsin’s law dictates that driving with a BAC of .08 or more is illegal. We will investigate these accidents and perform a thorough asset investigation. We are experienced and are here to help you.
