What Kind of Cases Do Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?

The field of personal injury law encompasses a diverse array of claims. Personal injury lawyers help the wrongfully injured pursue compensation for their losses from the party or parties that caused their injuries. Depending on the details of a case, the negligent person may be a driver, property owner, employer, or other party or business entity. 

Every personal injury case is unique. A personal injury attorney can explain your rights, who may be held accountable for your losses, and how to best pursue the damages to which you may be entitled under the law.

At Studinski Law, LLC our firm’s founder and principal personal injury attorney, Jason Studinski, has decades of experience handling a variety of personal injury claims. He has built a reputation for excellence in Plover, Marshfield, and other Wisconsin areas. 

Our entire legal team is committed to helping our clients pursue the best possible outcomes in their cases. We prepare for every stage of litigation thoroughly. We communicate with insurance companies and defense counsel, investigate the case, retain experts to demonstrate the extent of our clients’ losses, and –where possible—work to achieve a fair settlement on their behalf. Whether a just outcome can be negotiated, or the matter must proceed to trial, we stand diligently with our clients at every step.

Below are examples of the types of cases our personal injury firm handles.

Cases Involving Serious Injuries

The term “serious injuries” refers to injuries that have long-term, life-altering consequences. Serious injuries often result in lifelong disability, ongoing medical care, and financial burdens caused by high medical bills and lost wages. Examples of serious injuries include:

If you have suffered a serious injury because of someone’s negligence, our personal injury lawyers will evaluate and document the overall impact the injury has had on your life. 

While it is necessary to assess how the injury has affected your life and livelihood today, it is also crucial to understand how your life will be impacted years into the future. In addition to physical harm and new limitations, a serious injury can negatively affect your professional life, family life, and quality of life.

Cases Involving Motor Vehicle Accidents

Many personal injury cases involve motor vehicle accidents. As a driver, you make life-or-death decisions every day. If another driver is distracted, intoxicated, or driving aggressively, the health and wellbeing of everyone else on the road is in jeopardy.

Studinski Law, LLC has helped numerous crash victims in a range of motor vehicle accident claims, including:

Proving fault in an auto accident claim can be difficult. These cases are often very complicated, and require the knowledge and skill of an experienced attorney. Our seasoned motor vehicle accident lawyers understand the complexities of these claims and we know how to build effective cases on behalf of our clients.

Cases Involving Nursing Home Abuse

Our firm has extensive experience in cases of nursing home abuse and neglect. In addition to successfully resolving numerous nursing home abuse and neglect claims through arbitration and litigation, our founder Jason Studinski wrote the definitive “How to Keep Your Loved One Safe in a Wisconsin Nursing Home.” 

Elder abuse can take place in a variety of environments and institutions – not just in nursing homes. For example, your loved one may experience harm in a:

  • Nursing facility
  • Assisted living facility, such as a residential apartment complex, community-based residential facility, adult family homes, or adult daycare 
  • Memory care facility
  • Retirement home or retirement community

Pursuing legal action against a nursing home on behalf of a family member can be a difficult decision. Without the guidance and counsel of an experienced lawyer, the process can feel overwhelming. Lawsuits involving nursing home abuse can take anywhere up to two years or longer, depending on the circumstances. These cases require meticulous preparation, hard work, and time to complete. 

Cases Involving Workplace Injuries

Under Wisconsin law, employees who sustain injuries while on the job have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits. However, there could be a variety of different federal and state rules and regulations that could impact your pursuit of compensation, depending on the type of work that you were engaged in when you were hurt.

Studinski Law, LLC understands how Wisconsin courts and insurance companies apply employee negligence in workers’ compensation claims, and our firm has experience in a variety of workplace injury claims, including:

Our attorneys understand how a work injury can affect your professional and personal life. We will work diligently to help you recover the maximum compensation to which you may be entitled under the law.

Cases Involving Premises Liability

Property owners have a duty to ensure the safety of those who visit their premises. If you were hurt on someone’s dangerous property, you may be able to seek damages for your injuries in a premises liability lawsuit

Premises liability claims can involve a number of possible scenarios, such as:

Homeowners, store owners, landlords, and property managers can all potentially be liable for injuries that occur on their premises. Regardless of the party or parties involved, these cases hinge on proving negligence. This can often be difficult, and requires an experienced attorney to build an effective case.

Cases Involving Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one because of someone’s negligent actions is one of the most difficult experiences a person can endure. In addition to severe emotional anguish, a loved one’s death can cause unexpected financial burdens for those left behind. In addition to the immediate expenses of funeral and burial costs, a family’s long-term financial security can be in danger due to the sudden loss of the deceased’s income.

An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you considerably during this difficult time and fight for the future and wellbeing of your family through a wrongful death lawsuit.

In a wrongful death claim, your attorney can pursue damages to which you may be entitled under Wisconsin law, such as:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of financial contributions
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Loss of society and companionship

The attorneys at Studinski Law, LLC have extensive experience in wrongful death claims. Our knowledge in these complex matters allows us to calculate the full measure of your family’s losses and argue effectively for fair compensation.
