There is no Wisconsin law that states you are at fault merely for being involved in an accident. Insurance companies routinely try to point a finger at the person who didn't cause the accident, and use the term comparative negligence. Under comparative negligence, the amount you can recover for your medical bills, wage loss and pain and suffering are reduced by any percent you are found at fault for an accident.
The insurance company will try to convince you that you were comparatively negligent for the accident just because you were there. Don't become a victim of this common insurance company tactic. An experienced Wisconsin personal injury attorney who routinely fights insurance companies on these fault issues can expose the flaw in their reasoning and recover a fair settlement for you.
