Below is a brief overview of the types of cases we handle at Studinski Law, LLC.
Car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury claims in Wood County. They can happen to anyone at any time and lead to serious injuries that can significantly lower an individual’s quality of life. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident because another driver was speeding, disregarding road signs, texting while driving, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, our Wood County car accident lawyers can help you collect compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
After a car accident in Wood County, you should take the following steps:
- Move your vehicle out of traffic
- Visit a medical professional to get treated for your injuries
- Report the accident by calling the Wood County Sheriff’s Department or other appropriate law enforcement agency
- Exchange information with other drivers involved in the accident
- Take photos of vehicle damage and the accident scene
- Consult a Wood County car accident attorney
Although they may seem similar, truck accidents are handled differently than car accidents. Trucks are larger and heavier than cars and must be driven by professional truck drivers who often work for trucking companies which are heavily regulated. In the event that a trucker causes an accident, the trucker and trucking company are responsible for any damages that arise.
Due to the fact that trucks accidents often lead to damage and injuries that are more serious than those of car accidents, truckers and the companies they work for are required to carry insurance policies with higher liability limits. As a result, more money is often available for compensation in a truck accident lawsuit than one involving a car accident. If you’ve sustained an injury in a truck accident, contact our Wood County truck accident lawyers right away.
Other Motor Vehicle & Traffic Accidents
While car and truck accidents are the most common accidents in Wood County, other motor vehicle and traffic accidents do happen. Our Wood County motor vehicle accident attorneys represent victims of airplane crashes, boat accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. If any of these motor vehicle or traffic accidents has left you injured or taken the life of someone you love, call us immediately. We’ll take care of the legalities of your situation and help you get through this tragic time.
Premises liability law was designed to hold property owners legally responsible when a visitor gets injured on their property. Whether you were hurt at a business such as a shopping mall or a restaurant or a residence like a friend’s house, you may be able to collect compensation for your injuries. Our Wood County premises liability lawyers can guide you through the complicated process of filing a premises liability lawsuit. Slip and fall accidents, negligent security accidents, dog bite attacks, swimming pool accidents, and defective stairway accidents are several examples of the types of premises liability cases we handle.
One of the most difficult experiences in life is losing a loved one. When the loss was the result of another person’s negligent actions, the pain you are left with can be intense. If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident, or any other incident, you may recover compensation for your losses in a wrongful death claim filed by one of our Wood County wrongful death attorneys.
The compensation you recover can pay for funeral expenses, loss of financial contributions, loss of inheritance, and loss of society and companionship. Through a wrongful death claim, you can ease the burden of any financial hardships you and other surviving families may be facing.
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
When you place your older loved one in a nursing home, you trust that they will be treated with respect and dignity. However, when this does not occur and a nursing home employee abuses or neglects your loved one, you should know that you are protected under Wisconsin law. If you suspect your elderly loved one is showing signs of nursing home abuse such as bedsores, bruises, broken bones, or weight loss, you should reach out to Studinski Law, LLC.
Our Wood County nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys will perform a comprehensive investigation and may be able to assist your senior in collecting compensation. Our goal is to make sure the nursing home is held liable for their negligence and prevent any abuse or neglect from ever harming your senior again.
Workplace injuries are widely seen in Wood County. If your workplace injury was the result of the negligent behavior of someone other than your employer or fellow employee, you may be able to recover additional damages beyond workers’ compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
A workplace accident attorney from Studinski Law, LLC can determine if a third party contributed to your injury and file a claim on your behalf so that you don’t have to stress about finding the money to pay for expenses that were not covered by workers’ compensation benefits.
Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance companies owe their policyholders and, in certain cases, claimants a duty of good faith and fair dealing. When they breach this duty, you may pursue a claim for bad faith against the company. If you believe you are a victim of insurance bad faith, you should call our Wood County insurance bad faith lawyers. They will examine your situation and inform you of your legal options.
Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, severe burns, and amputations are all serious injuries that arise from accidents that are often the result of negligence. If you’ve visited Norwood Health Center, Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, or another medical facility to treat a serious injury that was caused by someone else’s wrongdoing, you may be able to obtain compensation to pay for your hefty medical bills. If a serious injury has struck your life, consult our Wood County serious injury attorneys immediately.
