If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in an accident, you know all too well how stressful the aftermath can be. The piles of medical bills, physical pain, emotional strife, and other damages can leave you feeling alone during the time you most need support.
Having a compassionate, skilled Duluth personal injury attorney looking out for your interests can make all the difference as you begin looking toward the future.
There are important reasons beyond the statute of limitations to seek the advice of a lawyer as soon as possible. Evidence can be crucial in personal injury claims, particularly those involving motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls, and workplace accidents. Evidence – whether it’s in the form of a defective ladder, smashed fenders, or an icy sidewalk – can disappear quickly in the hours and days after an accident results in an injury. Waiting too long to speak with a Duluth personal injury attorney could leave you unable to recover compensation for your economic and noneconomic losses.
At Nicolet Law Firm, our goal is to help you put your life back together after a difficult time. This might be keeping your finances stable as you recover from a serious injury or helping you through the bankruptcy process as you consolidate and eliminate debt.
We also guide clients through the workers’ compensation process and Social Security Disability applications. Whatever your need, our attorneys will be supportive, communicative partners. We will focus on your concerns, develop a plan, and help you move forward.
At Nicolet Law, we have successfully helped many of our clients achieve better results as they pursue compensation for severe injuries suffered due to the negligence of another party. In one notable claim, for example, we helped a slip and fall accident victim turn the insurance company’s $5,000 settlement offer into $200,000 in compensation.
Our past results cannot guarantee the compensation you will ultimately receive as part of your personal injury claim, since the compensation you deserve may vary based on the circumstances that led to your accident and the extent of your injuries. However, our experienced legal team brings their considerable experience to every case, helping our clients maximize the odds of achieving the best outcome possible.
After severe injuries due to medical malpractice, our lawyers helped another client acquire six figures in compensation.
We helped another client navigate the difference between a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim, and examined the law to help maximize the benefits he ultimately received for his injuries.

Our negotiation and litigation have resulted in winning millions of dollars for our injured clients. These results and the testimonials of our satisfied clients stand as a testament to the level of care our attorneys provide to our clients. We are never satisfied until our clients have the financial compensation they need now and for the future. This includes the financial means to cover the costs of home renovations, in-home care, and additional costs associated with traumatic brain injuries and catastrophic spinal cord injuries.

In the aftermath of a car crash or other accident, you may feel just fine. A little spooked, on edge, but largely fine. It may be tempting to skip the hassle of a visit to the hospital or clinic, but that is the worst thing you can do after an accident. Establishing a record of medical treatment is crucial in the event you need to pursue a personal injury claim later on. It’s common for injuries to take hours, days and even weeks before symptoms arise. Seeking medical help right away not only establishes a record of treatment, it can uncover injuries such as internal bleeding that can be a silent killer.
Terms such as “damages” and “compensation” are thrown around frequently when discussing personal injury claims. Personal injury damages refer to the economic and noneconomic losses someone suffers as a result of their injury. A personal injury claim seeks to recoup financial compensation to cover those damages. Examples of damages include:
If you have specific questions related to your claim and your right to compensation, get in touch with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
To file a personal injury claim following an accident with serious injuries, your attorney will start by identifying the party that caused your accident.
Often, our attorneys will ask:
Following some accidents, your attorney may identify more than one party that shares liability for the accident. Identifying more than one liable party may help increase the compensation you can ultimately recover.
It can take months to fully settle a personal injury claim. Your attorney will need time to gather evidence and put together a compelling case. You may even need time to recover from your injuries, since you may not know the full extent of your medical costs until you have progressed further in your recovery.
If you have severe injuries, you may need to go through several rounds of negotiation with the insurance company before arriving at a satisfactory settlement arrangement, which can further extend the time needed to settle your claim.
Talk to an attorney at Nicolet Law Office S.C. before accepting any settlement offer. In many cases, that offer may not reflect the compensation you really deserve for your injuries. If you accept it, it could hurt your financial future.
Always prioritize medical treatment after any type of accident, especially if you know another party’s negligence caused your injuries. Try to document evidence at the scene of the accident, if you can collect photos or witness contact information without putting yourself in danger. Finally, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Nicolet Law Office S.C. as soon after your accident as possible to learn more about your right to compensation.
