My doctor says that we won’t know the full extent of my injuries for some time. How will that impact my legal recovery after a Milwaukee slip and fall accident?

You are right to consider both your physical and legal recoveries after a Milwaukee fall accident. Your goal is understandably—and correctly—to recover a fair amount of damages for the actual damages that you incurred in your fall accident. It can be difficult to know what those damages are if your doctor is uncertain about your future recovery.

However, that should not discourage you from contacting an experienced Milwaukee slip and fall accident lawyer as soon as possible. You may still have a limited time to file a Wisconsin slip and fall case. It is important to file your case with in the required time frame in order to protect your potential recovery.

During the discovery phase of your personal injury lawsuit, and as your Milwaukee slip and fall attorney negotiates potential settlements with the defendants and their insurers, the issue of your injuries will come up. In order to settle a case or recover damages at trial, you doctor—and potentially other expert witnesses—will need to testify as to the reasonable likelihood of your future injuries. They do not need to know the extent of your future injuries for certain, but rather they need to be able to make reasonable and professional predictions about the injuries and how they may impact your life.
