Collecting From Defendants Who Cannot Pay

If you file and win a personal injury lawsuit, you expect to receive financial compensation from the defendant in a quick and timely manner so you can pay for medical bills and other damages. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case; there are many instances where the defendant cannot afford to pay the plaintiff. Fortunately, there are alternative methods for getting financial compensation.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident because of someone else’s negligent actions, you can take action and fight for financial compensation. Contact a Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874 to learn more about how we can help you secure compensation even if the person at fault for your accident cannot pay.

Getting Financial Compensation

There are a variety of reasons why defendants may not be able afford to pay the plaintiff financial compensation following a personal injury lawsuit. As an example, the defendant may have recently filed for bankruptcy which makes it impossible for him or her to pay damages in a personal injury case.

However, plaintiffs do have several options to recover compensation so they are not forced to pay damages out-of-pocket. Some alternative ways to secure financial compensation include garnishing up to 25% of the defendant’s wages or even establishing a repayment plan so he or she can pay it off the compensation over the following months or even years.
