Cermele & Matthews, S.C., has successfully represented scores of law enforcement officers who have been injured on and off-duty. Settlements have reached in excess of $250,000, and have often been coupled with a Workers' Compensation claim and/or Underinsured Motorist coverage, so as to greatly enhance the available compensation. We have even secured the right of law enforcement officers to be allowed to sue, in negligence, for injuries incurred in the course of their employment. (See Cole v. Hubanks)
Uninsured Motorist Accidents An unfortunate fact of life in Wisconsin is that many drivers don't carry auto insurance. If you've been injured by an uninsured motorist, did you realize that you may have coverage under your own insurance policy? Were you aware that, if the injury occurred in the course of your employment, your municipal employer may also have insurance that can cover your damages, even in excess of any Workers Compensation payment made?
Underinsured Motorist Accidents Even when other drivers are insured, it is often insufficient to cover your damages. Many people don't realize that even if the negligent driver is insured, a claim can also be made against your own insurance carrier to maximize the available compensation. Cermele & Matthews, S.C. will exhaust all areas of potential revenue in an effort to cover your damages.
