Wausau Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
It’s hard out there for working men and women. Balancing work and family life while going through the rigors of the workday can take a toll on anyone. At least we have going home to look forward to. What if one day you had to go to the hospital instead of going home to your loved ones? That happens to far too many workers who are hurt on the job. If you or a loved one has been injured at work or suffered a work-related injury, speaking to a local workers’ compensation lawyer about your rights is crucial.
At Nicolet Law Office, we provide workers in Wausau and surrounding communities with strong representation. We know how difficult it can be to deal with the insurance companies, but we are equipped for the battle and have achieved impressive results for our clients. We focus on making sure injured workers have the benefits and resources they need to make ends meet at home and pay their medical bills while they focus on their physical and emotional recovery after an accident.
Our Goal Is To Make You Whole Again
Workers’ compensation benefits can cover your medical bills and your lost earnings. It seems straightforward enough but insurance companies will fight tooth and nail to avoid paying out the benefits you deserve. That’s where we come in. We know the games they play and are fully prepared to go to trial to make sure you get a fair outcome. That allows us to negotiate from a strong position as they know we will not settle for anything less than what you need.
Our firm represents workers in Wausau and surrounding area who have suffered work-related injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Head injuries such as skull fractures and concussions
- Spinal cord injuries, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Joint injuries (knee, ankle, hip, etc.)
- Burn injuries from fires, electrical accidents, explosions and chemicals
- Hearing loss
- Vision loss
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Amputation and lost limbs
- Depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder
No matter the color of your collar or the industry you work in, you can rely on us to assert your rights and support you during a difficult time in your life.
Personal Injury Can Bridge The Gap
Workers’ compensation will cover your economic losses (lost wages, medical costs) but does not compensate you for your pain and suffering. A personal injury claim against a third-party – such as a negligent driver who crashed into you while you were driving for work – can provide you with compensation for your noneconomic damages. This can be above and beyond your workers’ compensation benefits. We are equipped to handle both of your claims simultaneously.
