When to Call a Personal Injury Lawyer in Milwaukee
As soon as you realize that you are injured, you should speak with a Milwaukee personal injury attorney. Many people are hesitant to call an attorney for a variety of reasons. Some may not be aware they have a case or are not sure who might be at fault. Others may not feel their injuries justify legal action. However, without speaking to an attorney, you will not know if you have a case or how much compensation you may be entitled to. An attorney can help you identify liable parties, find out how much insurance coverage is available, and help you understand the full extent of your injuries and how much you will need to move forward. If you have been injured due to someone else’s fault, you owe it to your family and yourself to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney.
At Mingo & Yankala our Milwaukee personal injury attorney and personal injury team is available to speak with you about your case at absolutely no charge. We will listen to the facts of your case and let you know if we can help you with no obligation to retain our services.

Damages You Could Recover in Your Personal Injury Case
How much is my case worth? The answer to this common question is, unfortunately, it depends. The value of your case is determined by many factors including the nature and extent of your injuries, the amount of insurance coverage available, and the impact the injury has had on your life. Never allow any attorney to pretend to tell you how much your case with worth until the attorney fully understands the nature of all of your injuries, whether any of the injuries are permanent and how those injuries impact your life and the life of your family. Your attorney needs to take the time to get to know you and unfortunately too few attorneys will take this time.
In order to calculate the value of your case, your attorney will need to know all of the ways that your life has been affected by your injuries and the costs that you have incurred. In legal terms, these costs are referred to as damages. In most personal injury cases, accident victims may be eligible to recover economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are tangle costs that include:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of future potential earnings
- Costs of increased insurance premiums
- Property damages
- Loss of household services and unexpected child care fees
Non-economic damages exist to compensate you for things that do not have a fixed monetary value. Some of the more commonly sought after types of non-economic damages include:
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of society and support
- Diminished quality of life
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
How to Obtain Compensation for a Milwaukee Personal Injury
In most cases, compensation in personal injury cases comes from the responsible party’s insurance company. Often there is more than one party responsible for the accident. In those cases, the injured party may be able to obtain compensation from multiple insurance policies. An experienced Milwaukee personal injury attorney can identify all possible responsible parties so that you obtain the best recovery possible.
For many years we represented the largest, and most well-known, insurance companies in Wisconsin and across the country. Many insurance companies considered us the “go to” law firm when the insurance company or its insured were sued for personal injuries throughout Wisconsin. Although we now devote our practice to representing personal injury victims, all our past experience representing insurance companies means we know exactly how to properly present an injury claim to an insurance company in order to obtain a great settlement or recovery for our injured clients. Insurance companies know and respect us and this greatly benefits all of our personal injury clients. Insurance companies know we do not pursue frivolous or non-meritorious claims.
We present every injury claim to the insurance company in a respectful and authoritative manner. In turn, the insurance company knows that we have the skill and experience to take the case all the way through trial if a settlement offer is not made that fully compensates our client.
Our past experience representing big-name insurance companies, and now representing injury victims, has earned us the respect of our injury clients as well as the respect of insurance companies we now present claims to. This is what one of our clients had to say after he attempted to settle a claim for himself and his wife following an accident:
“Mark Mingo was able to procure a settlement over 18 times what the insurance company offered to settle our injury claim, and we were able to resolve our claim through mediation rather than having to endure a trial. After my experience with dealing with the insurance company for almost 3 years, my advice is to at least consult with Mark about your case and as soon as possible after the incident occurs.”
