How Much is My Superior Personal Injury Claim Worth?
Contrary to the image of “ambulance-chasing personal injury lawyers,” a personal injury attorney in Superior will help you seek financial resources tied explicitly to your needs now and in the future due to the injuries you sustained. Personal injury damages cover your economic and noneconomic losses, such as:
- Medical expenses: You don’t need us to tell you that medical bills can pile up in a hurry and they’re not cheap. A personal injury settlement or jury award can make sure you have the money to pay your accident-related medical bills now and far into the future.
- Lost earnings: It’s hard to make a living when you’re injured, and keeping the lights on for your family is the last thing you should have to worry about at a time like this. A personal injury claim can result in compensation for your lost wages and lost future earnings. This includes compensation to cover lost income as a result of a job loss, reduced hours or having to switch careers as a result of your injuries.
- Pain and suffering: This covers your noneconomic damages. It’s harder to quantify your emotional and psychological trauma after an accident, but you deserve to be compensated for what you have been through as a result of someone else’s negligence.
When you contact a Superior personal injury attorney at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, we will meet with you for a FREE initial evaluation of your case. During this evaluation, your attorney will ask you questions about your accident, your injuries, and the damages you suffered. After this evaluation, we can give you an idea of what your case might be worth and how we will collect this compensation so that you can move forward in the future.
The value of your case depends on the severity of your injuries. Injuries that cause long-term or permanent disabilities bring more because you have more medical expenses.
Recoverable damages include:
- Past and future medical expenses and lost wages.
- Replacement of destroyed or damaged personal property.
- Funeral, burial, and/or cremation expenses if you lost a loved one in an accident.
- Pain and suffering.
- Loss of quality of life.
- Loss of companionship and/or consortium.
- Loss of use of a body part or bodily function.
- Amputation of a digit or limb.
- Excessive scarring and/or disfigurement.
Superior Personal Injury FAQs
Because Superior, Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Superior, the area sees increased traffic during the summer months. Increased traffic means an increase in accident risks. And, because of the area parks and the winter weather, the risk of suffering injuries in a slip or trip and fall accident is higher throughout the year.
Both types of accidents could cause severe injuries and put you out of work for some time. In many cases, you can recover damages if another person’s negligence caused the car accident or is the reason you slipped and fell.
If you suffered a personal injury in Superior, contact Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers.
What do I do immediately after an accident in Superior?
You should take several steps after an accident, if possible. If you can move without causing additional damage to yourself, call first responders and check on others who might have suffered injuries in the accident or incident. Take photos of the accident scene, making sure to get all vehicles involved if you were in a car accident, the cause of a fall for a slip and fall, or the reason for a workplace accident.
Obtain the contact information for anyone else involved in the accident or incident. If you were in a car accident, obtain the other driver’s license, insurance, and registration information. Speak with witnesses to find out what they saw. You should also get a good phone number and/or email address for any witnesses.
Once the police release you from the scene, obtain medical attention, even if you feel your injuries are minor. Notify your employer if you suffered injuries in a workplace accident. Notify the property owner if you sustained injuries in a slip or trip and fall accident. For a vehicle accident, you can notify the insurance company, but only give it your contact information and your attorney’s contact information.
Do I need an attorney for a Superior personal injury case?
When people try to settle claims, they often leave money on the table. Insurance companies know that the average person does not know the law nor the tricks that the insurance companies play and will do anything they can to protect their bottom line.
However, when an attorney deals with the insurance company, it knows it can’t pull the wool over the attorney’s eyes with its tricks. The insurance company also knows that an accident victim who retains an attorney is more likely to take his or her case to court if the insurance company offers a low settlement number.
How much does a Superior personal injury lawyer cost?
The initial case evaluation is always free. If we take your case, you only pay attorney’s fees if we secure compensation for you.
How do I know if I have a Superior personal injury case?
If another person caused your injuries because of negligent actions or inactions, you might have a case. The Superior, Wisconsin personal injury attorneys at Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers look at the facts of your case during the free case evaluation and can let you know if we believe you have a case.
Don't try to evaluate your claim on your own and never believe that there is nothing you can do. You have legal options and we can help you explore all those legal options in a free consultation.
What kind of injuries could I suffer in personal injury cases?
Injuries depend on the severity of the accident. Any personal injury accident could result in several injuries, including:
- Bumps, bruises, cuts, scrapes, and scratches.
- Infection of open wounds.
- Road rash.
- Thermal and/or chemical burns.
- Head, neck, and shoulder injuries.
- Face and eye injuries.
- Traumatic brain injuries.
- Back and spinal cord injuries.
- Internal injuries.
- Sprains, strains, pulled or torn muscles, and other soft tissue injuries.
What should I tell the insurance company?
You should only give the insurance company your contact information, the date and location of the incident or accident, and your attorney’s contact information. The insurance company may twist your words in an attempt to deny your claim or to offer you a lower settlement amount. A lower amount might not pay all of your medical expenses, especially if your accident injuries cause permanent disabilities.
How long do I have to file legal action against the defendant?
In most cases, you have up to three years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Superior. However, it is better to file sooner rather than later, since you not only get the compensation you deserve sooner, but you’ll remember more about the accident or incident if you file soon after the accident.
When you contact our Superior personal injury law firm, we can give you a better idea of your time limits. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to make sure you don't miss any of those time limits or deadlines. We protect your legal rights - it's what we do.
