Paul Benson

I’m a native of Janesville, and I’ve been standing up for victims of personal injury for years. When you reach out to me for a free case evaluation, I understand that you’re going through one of the most difficult times in your life. My main focus is ensuring that you’re treated fairly throughout your case—so that you can move forward.

Get to Know Me

Injury Cases I Handle

There were nearly 130,000 car crashes in the state of Wisconsin in 2016 alone. When the insurance company tries to take advantage of you, retaliate with me by your side.

As of 2016, Wisconsin is home to roughly 4,000 assisted living facilities and 400 nursing homes. When you need to hold these for-profit organizations accountable, contact me.

When you have a perfectly legal claim against your insurance company and they refuse to cooperate, having an attorney on your side will increase your chances of success.

Premises liability and slip and fall cases are common, with wholesale and retail companies being involved in roughly 60% of all slip and fall claims.

Approximately 17% of all dog bites nationwide require medical treatment. When you’ve been injured due to a dog bite, I’ll educate you on your rights and next steps.

The number of Wisconsin professionals who cycle to work has steadily increased over the years. There are more bikes on the road—and more possibilities for accidents.

You’re juggling all the issues that come with a personal injury: handling time missed from work, repairing or replacing your vehicle, recovering from your injuries, and arguing with the responsible party and your insurance company.
