With You Each Step of the Way...

If you or a loved one has been injured, your main concern is physically healing, and getting back to your day to day life. However, you do not want to accept less compensation than you are entitled to. To ensure that you are treated fairly by the insurance company, take advantage of a free, no-obligation consultation to learn how Minnesota or Wisconsin injury law applies to your situation, and your options for moving forward.

St. Paul Accident and Injury Lawyer

Handling Cases in the Twin Cities Metro, Greater Minnesota and Western Wisconsin

My name is William J. Schmitz, but my friends and clients call me Bill; I am an accident and injury lawyer serving the Twin Cities area, greater Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. If you or a loved one has been injured, I understand what a difficult situation that can be. An injury sustained after an accident can feel like it is putting your entire life on hold. Accidents can affect your ability to go to work and earn an income, and leave you in need of expensive medical treatments. What’s worse, you may be getting pressured by the insurance company to sign an agreement or accept a settlement that may not cover your missed wages, medical expenses or other financial hardship caused by the accident.

To make sure that your rights are protected, take advantage of a no-obligation, free consultation where I will review the facts around your case and help you understand your options for pursuing a settlement. I will help you understand the types of compensation available for your injury, how they should be calculated, and how to proceed with getting the best possible settlement from the insurance company.

Why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side.

The unfortunate fact is that people who do not have a lawyer protecting their interests are routinely taken advantage of by the insurance companies. As your lawyer, my job is to level the playing field and protect your interest through the process. When you work through the recovery process on your own, you are putting the insurance company at a significant advantage, which will usually result in you receiving far less than you deserve for your injuries.

How I Work With My Clients

I am truly a solo practitioner; I answer my own phone and I work directly with each of my clients every step of the way. Injury lawyers in larger firms will often rely on their staff to answer day-to-day questions and handle communication with you. I believe that you deserve to speak with your attorney directly whenever you have a question or a problem.

Free Consultation and Never an Up-Front Fee

You can take the first step by getting your questions answered in a free initial consultation. I am willing to answer a few questions over the phone, or we can meet and discuss your case in depth. I am available to meet with you in your home or hospital when needed.

If you decide that you would like me to to represent you, I will review the retainer agreement (basically the contract between a lawyer and a client) with you. The retainer will lay out that I am paid a percentage of the recovery or verdict that we secure on your behalf, which means that if we don’t win, you don’t pay.
