Award-Winning Legal Representation in River Falls, Wisconsin 

Personal injury lawyers handle many types of cases throughout River Falls. However, not all personal injury attorneys handle all types of personal injury matters.

Before retaining an attorney, make sure that the attorney you choose handles the type of case you have. Always check the attorney’s track record and his or her experience. Also, make sure the attorney you select has settlement and litigation experience, since there is always a possibility that your case could go to litigation.

We feel that we check all of those boxes at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers—so if you suffered a personal injury in River Falls, contact our River Falls personal injury lawyers for a free case evaluation.

Vehicle Accidents

No vehicle accident is the same. A truck accident is different from a car accident, which is different from a motorcycle accident. Even pedestrian accidents and boat accidents are different. The size of the vehicle makes all the difference in the world when it comes to the type of injuries you could suffer.

Additionally, the way another vehicle hits you also makes a difference. Head-on wrecks tend to cause more damage than rear-end wrecks, especially at higher speeds.

Workers’ Compensation Accidents

All manner of accidents can happen while you are at work, even if you work in an office. Wisconsin workers’ compensation laws are complex, so an attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.

The River Falls personal injury lawyer you choose should have extensive experience in Wisconsin’s workers’ compensation laws. In some cases, you might need to sue your employer instead of opting for workers’ compensation. An attorney at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers can explain when this is allowed, and if he or she recommends that path.

Filing a claim depends on your injuries and the actions or inactions of the employer. Not everyone will be eligible to file a claim. However, a workers’ compensation attorney can help you file your workers’ compensation claim and reduce the chances of you having to file an appeal.

Other Cases We Can Handle for You

  • Wrongful death
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Social Security disability
  • Snowmobile accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Pedestrian accident
  • Dog bites
  • Brain injury
  • Bicycle accidents

Should I Settle or Litigate My River Falls Personal Injury Case?

top-40-under-40-trial-lawyers

Whether to settle or litigate your case is a preference that you might make at the beginning of the case, but could change as the case progresses. While everyone would like to settle his or her case because it’s quicker and less expensive, sometimes you must litigate to get the compensation you deserve, especially if your accident caused injuries that turned into long-term or permanent disabilities.

We usually advise our clients to move forward with litigation if the insurance company refuses a fair and reasonable settlement. It depends on the insurance company and whether the defendant has enough insurance to cover all of your damages.

Recovering Damages

In Wisconsin, you can recover compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages include economic damages, which have a monetary value, and non-economic damages, which do not have a specific monetary value attached. The court orders the defendant to pay both in an attempt to make you whole again. While the money does not heal your injuries or bring back a loved one, it does ease the financial burden your injuries cause.

On the other hand, the court only orders punitive damages if the defendant’s actions or inactions are considered an intentional disregard for the rights or safety of others. The court does not order the defendant to pay punitive damages to make you whole again, but instead, to punish the defendant’s intentional behavior that caused your injuries or the death of a loved one.

Economic Damages

Sometimes referred to as special damages, economic damages include:

  • Past medical expenses for those incurred because of an accident and before a settlement or a trial award.
  • Future medical expenses for those incurred because of an accident and after a settlement or trial award. Medical expenses include therapy costs for physical therapy, occupational therapy, cognitive therapy, and other psychological therapies.
  • Past lost wages for those you lost from the time of the accident and because of accident injuries and before a settlement or trial award.
  • Future lost wages for those lost because of accident injuries after a settlement or trial award. You could also recover partial future lost wages if you can work, but your injuries preclude you from earning at the same capacity as before the accident.
  • Replacement of destroyed property.
  • Funeral, burial, and/or cremation expenses.

Non-Economic Damages

Sometimes referred to as general damages, non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering, which includes emotional distress for those who suffered injuries in an accident or because of a product liability case.
  • Emotional distress for those who lost a loved one because of accident injuries.
  • Loss of quality of life if you have injuries that require you to take medication for the rest of your life or if you have to use an ambulatory aid for the rest of your life.
  • Loss of companionship if you can no longer enjoy or take part in family activities and events.
  • Loss of consortium if you can no longer have a physical relationship with your spouse.
  • Loss of use of a body part or bodily function, such as a hand or your eyesight.
  • Inconvenience or homecare needs if you have to hire someone to do typical chores such as grocery shopping, lawn maintenance, house cleaning, and home repair and maintenance.

You could also receive compensation if you suffered an amputation, if you developed excessive scarring, or become disfigured because of accident injuries.
