As much as you deserve compensation for your damages, the process challenges can seem insurmountable. Sometimes insurance companies might decline to pay, leaving you out in the cold.

At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we have been representing clients since 2007. We offer tailored and affordable services that have helped us recover over $44 million for our clients so far.

Why Hire Us

Benefits of Hiring Us
#1. We Empathize With You
We value our clients and empathize with their situations. If you’re not at fault we will fight to prove the truth of the liability (that the other party was truly at fault), we take you in and walk with you through the process.
Once we get the accident details, we can employ every resource available to gather evidence and build a strong case. We focus on getting our client the best outcome, and will work hard to get those results.
#2. We Negotiate for Fair Settlement
As much as we wish to see your case settle as quickly as possible, we know that prompt compensation is not always in your best interests. It may provide immediate financial relief, only to leave you with uncovered future costs.
When insurance companies make you an early offer, we work with you to determine if the amount is fair or not. Then we send them our demand and negotiate to get the insurance company to agree to fair compensation.
In many cases, we settle the claims out-of-court. But if the insurer refuses to settle fairly, we may file the lawsuit on your behalf and carry on with the proceedings.
#3. We Are Committed

Some of our awards and recognitions include:

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the steps for a personal injury claim?
A personal injury claim follows these main five steps:
- Getting medical treatment
- Consulting a personal injury lawyer
- Investigating the claim and developing evidence
- Submitting a demand and negotiating
- Filing a lawsuit (if settlement fails)
What is the statute of limitation for personal injury claims?
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases varies from state to state. If you got injured in Amery, the Wisconsin statute of limitations for personal injury is three years. That means you must file a lawsuit against the at-fault party within three years after the date of the accident.
However, in some wrongful death cases, the limit for filing a lawsuit can be a short two years after the cause of action accrues.
What evidence is required in a personal injury claim?
Getting in an accident is not enough to warrant compensation. A plaintiff must provide evidence to support their claim about the defendant’s liability (that the defendant was at fault) and the damages they sustained.
Examples of evidence include:
- Physical evidence (equipment, clothes, tools, weapons, vehicles, etc.)
- Scene evidence (skid marks on the road, broken window glass, etc.)
- Injury documentation (medical data, bills, repair receipts, etc.)
- Eyewitness testimony
- Accident photos and videos
What damages am I entitled to in a personal injury claim?
You can claim various damages, depending on your losses.
Examples of typically allowed damages include:
- Medical expenses (current and future)
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
Other damages may include:
- Wrongful death (claimed by relatives of a deceased accident victim)
- Punitive damages (awarded by a court as punishment to a defendant who demonstrates an intentional disregard for the safety for others)
Must I file a lawsuit in a personal injury claim?
No. You do not have to file a lawsuit in a personal injury claim. Actually, reports show over 95 percent of claims settle pretrial. If you secure a lawyer with strong negotiation skills, you might get a decent settlement even without taking the case to trial, however, in some cases the case just needs to go to trial to get a fair value.
