When accidents happen, they can affect all aspects of a victim’s life, including his or her physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Personal injury cases can play a pivotal role in a victim’s recovery by helping them receive compensation for the injuries they sustained.
At Nicolet Law Office, we’re here to guide our clients through what can be a long and complicated road toward physical and financial recovery. Our experienced personal injury lawyers will do everything they can to make the process easier.
To determine whether a personal injury claim is right for your situation, you will need to understand liability and damages—two essential elements of a personal injury case.
Liability: A personal injury case begins when an accident or injury victim decides to file a complaint against a person, business, corporation, or government agency whose action or inaction allegedly resulted in the plaintiff’s harm. The plaintiff will then need to prove liability, as the injury or damage itself does not automatically result in legal liability.
A successful personal injury claim requires the plaintiff to establish that the defendant was legally responsible for the victim’s injuries or damages. If the plaintiff establishes liability, the defendant’s insurance company may provide the victim with compensation for medical treatment, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
Damages: A plaintiff needs to demonstrate the nature and extent of their injuries and losses before they can receive compensation. Common personal injury case damages include lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, and property damages.
Many of our clients at Nicolet Law wonder whether they need to file a personal injury lawsuit by a particular time. The answer is yes, though the amount of time you have depends on where you are. Every state has a statute of limitations—a law that sets a time limit on your right to file a lawsuit—and you will want to verify your state’s statute to avoid inadvertently missing the deadline.
While accident and injury victims in Minnesota have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, for example, Wisconsin residents have three years before they run out of time. Exceptions to the statutes of limitations are rare.
Filing a personal injury lawsuit can seem overwhelming, especially when you need to focus on your recovery. At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we strive to make the process as smooth and straightforward for our clients as we can.
Although no two cases are alike, personal injury cases tend to include the following steps:
