Lawyers Helping Victims Of Workplace Accidents

Protecting Injured Workers

Getting into a serious accident on the job is every worker's nightmare. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that some industries are so dangerous that as high as 10 percent of workers will lose time on the job over the course of a year because of accidents or job-related disabilities. Under Wisconsin and Minnesota law, employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance to protect injured workers from the devastating financial effects of a serious injury. Unfortunately, employers and insurance carriers often do their best to deny or reduce the full extent of the claim.

If you were injured in a work accident, it makes sense to turn your claim over to an experienced personal injury lawyer. Talk to an attorney at Nicolet Law Office, S.C., before you submit your claim. We offer a free consultation and handle all workers' compensation litigation cases on a contingency fee basis. You pay no money upfront. We only receive payment if your claim is approved or your appeal is successful.

Why Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer For A Workplace Injury Claim?

In most cases, injured workers receiving workers' comp pay forfeit their rights to sue their employer for additional damages. However, third-party claims laws allow the injured worker to sue any other negligent party or parties who may be held liable for causing the accident or injuries. We will investigate your workplace accidents to determine whether the property owner, a product manufacturer or subcontractor on site may be financially responsible for additional compensation. Third-party lawsuits are the only way an injured worker can collect money damages for pain and suffering resulting from the injuries.
