Recovering from a personal injury after an accident is a major hurdle that far too many people go through in life. Here in Hibbing, we see countless personal injury cases that change lives in mere minutes.
From car accidents to dog bites, anything can happen. When it happens to you, know that justice is still possible when taking legal action.
While it’s not always easy to seek legal guidance after suffering injuries, we’re here to help you with your personal injury case at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers.
Our commitment to giving you justice and our sense of empathy for your injuries are but a few reasons why you should hire us. After your accident, things are not going to stay the same as they were. Most likely, you have life-altering injuries that mean numerous difficulties ahead, including financial challenges due to medical bills. How are you going to pay those, not including possible additional bills for rehabilitation in the future?
You have all legal right to seek a settlement from the negligent person or company causing your accident. That’s what we’ll help you do when armed with the proper evidence proving another party’s responsibility for the harm you suffered.
Often, we’ll first visit the scene where your accident occurred. Was your personal injury a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or a product liability? No matter the category, we look for the evidence that proves you deserve compensation for your injuries.
At car accident sites, we’ll interview witnesses, gather video footage, and protect your medical records to definitively prove your injuries. Thanks to video footage being more ubiquitous nowadays, visual proof is an essential piece of evidence to have if you decide to take your case to trial. If there was Traffic video footage here in Hibbing that would help.
After evidence is gathered, the biggest challenge often comes in negotiating with the defendant’s insurance company.
From the outset, insurance companies are immediately going to look out for the best interests of their owners and shareholders. This means they’ll usually try to minimize the severity of your injuries after you file a claim with them.
An unfortunate trick they pull is contacting you to get you to settle early. Never take that small amount, because you probably deserve so much more.
Another thing to avoid is speaking to the insurance adjuster on the phone. They may try to ask you how you’re feeling while offering an early settlement. Anything you say that insinuates you’re doing better than you claimed could end up being twisted in court later.
Thanks to our vast experience negotiating with insurance companies, you’re in good hands represented by Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers.
We who live here in Hibbing know it as a great city center for shopping, dining, and recreation. Almost anything can happen in those places to cause injury.
For instance, shopping can mean someone slipping on a slick floor and causing spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injury. Dining can also cause injuries, including illness from food poisoning or perhaps an accident in the parking lot.
Recreational locations also have plenty of hazards. Our numerous sports clubs in the city pose considerable accident potential and range from bowling alleys to snowmobile clubs.
Harsh winters in Minnesota contribute far too much to serious car accidents and similar scenarios.
What can you expect from the legal services at Nicolet Law? Take a look at these common questions:
We invite you to look at our case results over the years to see what kind of outcomes we’ve reached for our clients. We’ve won major settlements that go as high as six figures.
Keep in mind, though, that all cases are different. The evidence you have for your personal injury case is likely different from someone else’s, and past results are no guarantee of future success. Based on this, it’s best to not place all hopes on a set amount.
You may receive more or less than our typical results.
Sometimes insurance companies refuse to budge on giving you a settlement offer you deserve. When this happens, we respect your wishes if you choose to head to a trial.
A major benefit to going to trial is you can present your case to a jury, rather than insurance adjusters. Some clients prefer this, since a jury may relate more to your plight. Sympathy and empathy from a jury can help win sizable compensation.
Just remember that trials can take longer than settlement negotiations.
Your injuries are perhaps serious enough to warrant suing the negligent person or company for punitive damages. Punitive damages, also called exemplary damages, allow you to recover more compensation directly from the defendant.
Compelling evidence makes all the difference in whether a court may order punitive damages. Regardless, many courts use this option to send a stronger message about the particular accident never happening again.
We do free consultations from the start, and also work on a contingency fee basis. It means we’ll work on your case without requiring attorney fees until and unless we secure compensation for you.
We want you to take time to recover from your injuries without worrying about financial stress.
