Duluth Personal Injury Lawyers
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 Twin Ports personal injury attorney looking out for your interests can make all the difference as you begin looking toward the future.
The Clock Is Ticking
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 Office, S.C., 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.

Injury Symptoms Are Sneaky
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.
Personal Injury Damages
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:
- Medical damages: You should not be left to bear the burden of medical costs after being injured due to someone’s negligence. A successful personal injury claim can provide compensation for your hospital bills, emergency services, ambulance fees, hospitalization, surgeries, rehab and other medical costs. This includes financial compensation for anticipated future costs due to the long-term effects of your injuries.
- Lost earnings: It’s hard to make ends meet if an injury leaves you unable to work. You can recover your lost wages via personal injury claim. This includes being compensated for the loss of your job, reduced hours, or other costs associated with your inability or reduced ability to work after an injury.
- Pain and suffering: This is the primary noneconomic damage that a personal injury claim seeks compensation for. This included damages such as pain, suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. In a workplace accident, it is possible to pursue a separate personal injury claim for pain and suffering in addition to pursuing a workers’ compensation claim for medical and wage benefits.
