If you were injured in an accident where someone else was fully or partially at-fault, we may be able to help you recover financial compensation for your:
- Medical bills
- Future medical, therapy and rehabilitation costs
- Lost income and lost future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress

- Loss of spousal relations, support, care, and companionship
When you contact us about your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation in order to determine the full extent of your losses so that we can seek the largest possible settlement. If a fair settlement isn’t on the table, we will go to court to protect your legal rights.
Steps to Take After an Accident
There are a number of important steps that individuals should take after being injured in an accident. When you contact us, our attorneys will walk you through everything that you need to do, in order to preserve your claim for compensation.
After an accident in North Central Wisconsin, you should:
1. Seek prompt medical attention.
See a doctor, even if you think that you feel fine. Many accident victims do not experience symptoms immediately, and seeking prompt medical attention will be important to your personal injury claim.
2. Take photos.
If you are able, take photos of everything possible. This includes the location where you were injured, vehicle damage (in the case of a car accident), damage to your clothes, and your physical injuries.
3. Talk to witnesses.
Try to collect contact information from any witnesses at the scene of the accident. These individuals may be able to provide important information to assist in your claim for compensation.
4. Write down everything that you remember.
Write down everything that you can remember. No detail is too small, and taking notes now can help you remember what happened, should you need to testify in the future.
5. Avoid giving statements to the insurance companies.
The insurance companies will most likely ask you to make recorded statements. You want to avoid doing so until you speak with an attorney.

Our attorneys handle personal injury cases on a contingency-fee basis. This means that you do not pay any legal fees, unless we help you secure financial compensation.
