  • Rear ended auto accident, at fault driver is insured. Not at fault driver Uninsured. What could happen?

    Since the uninsured person isn't at fault will the insurance company for the at fault, insured person pay damages?

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Lots could happen. The most direct way to answer your question is to ask the at fault insurance to evaluate the vehicle and pay for the damages. Many times the repair shop will have a "feel" for the insurance companies and the particular adjuster who is evaluating the car. If the insurance pays and there are aren't any injuries then the case is closed. Good luck.

  • I was denied Work Comp benefits for a hernia surgery on the premise that it was a pre-existing congenital defect.

    I feel that it was work related but I have no medical evidence to prove it. Should I request a review hearing?

    Jonathan’s Answer

    In Wisconsin you really do need medical support. Not necessarily a doctor to come in person to testify but simply to write his opinion or her opinion down on paper.

    Have an attorney review the medical records for support.

    Good luck.

  • Can I sue for being overcharged?

    I pay $705/mo in rent. Two other tenants with the exact same model apartment pay $650/mo. Can I sue for the $55 differnce for every month Ive paid rent?

    Jonathan’s Answer

    Before you file a lawsuit you may want to simply ask the landlord why.

    I can't think of a cause of action that would apply in this situation.

    There are lots of good landlord-tenant resources in the Madison area, you may want to use those.

    Good luck.

    Jonathan’s Answer

    I agree with Adam. An attorney would have to read the medical records at the very least to see what amount a jury may award if it went to trial. Maybe you can search for an attorney who will handle the case on a reduced % fee?
