Working for a living comes with many challenges. It can be difficult to balance your work responsibilities with your responsibilities at home.

It is crucial to understand your rights and have a strong advocate on your side if you have suffered a work-related injury. In Hibbing and surrounding Iron Range communities, you can turn to the proven local lawyers at Nicolet Law Office, to fight for the full workers’ compensation benefits you need to make ends meet.

“I’m not really comfortable with the idea of going after my boss or coworkers.”
The good news is you can get the benefits you need without harming your company or coworkers. We understand that, in our tight-knit community, the idea of potentially harming the ability of our friends and neighbors to make a living is troubling. Workers’ compensation benefits come from workers’ compensation insurance that employers are required to carry in order to make sure their workers are protected in the event of an on-the-job injury.
Unfortunately, the insurance companies will go to great lengths to protect their own bottom lines at the expense of injured workers. Our attorneys know the games they will play and are ready to fight for the full benefits you deserve. We can level the playing field and make sure you are not hurt a second time as a result of insurance company greed.

Workers’ Compensation Isn’t Always Enough
One thing workers’ compensation benefits won’t cover is compensation for your pain and suffering. If you were injured by a third party, such as another driver in a car crash while you were driving for work, a personal injury claim can bridge that gap. We can handle any third-party personal injury claims in addition to pursuing your workers’ compensation benefits. This is all at no cost to you since we only collect a fee once we collect compensation and benefits for you.
