Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
We offer legal representation for many types of personal injury claims. Some of the most common claims we handle include the following:
Motor Vehicle Accidents
The roads in Minnesota can be extremely dangerous. While no one wants to be involved in a motor vehicle accident, unfortunately they frequently occur. Motor vehicle accidents can result in severe injuries, including injuries to your neck and back, broken bones, torn ligaments, concussions, and many others.
Accidents can be frightening, and the aftermath is often overwhelming. However, we are here to help navigate the process. Our legal team will fight on your behalf to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
No matter the cause, losing a loved one can be overwhelming. A family member’s unexpected and sudden death due to someone else’s negligence can be even more overwhelming and leaves a hole that no financial compensation can fill. If someone else was at fault for causing the death of another person, you may have the right to bring a wrongful death claim against them to hold them responsible for their actions and recover your damages to ease the financial burden of this loss.
When you seek medical treatment, you expect quality and professional care. However, doctors and other healthcare workers can make mistakes.
If mistakes happen due to negligence, and you are injured as a result, then you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim.
You can count on our legal team to stand firm against insurance companies, hospitals, and other healthcare institutions to help you receive the compensation you deserve, including damages for your pain and suffering.
Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents
Property owners have a duty of care to people who are on their property. They have a duty to inspect the property for hazards and remedy or warn of those hazards to ensure you do not sustain an injury. If a property owner’s negligence results in your injuries, you may be able to recover damages from the at-fault party through a slip-and-fall accident claim.
If you are injured on someone else’s property, whether you are a guest at a hotel, B&B, motel, or another location like a retail store or job site, others may be held responsible if their negligence caused your injuries. Our legal team has years of experience in handling claims against property owners, and know how to build and present a case to recover your damages.
If you are injured by a defective product, you need legal representation from experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. Our legal team has the expertise to help with your products liability case and ensure the right party is held responsible.
In Minnesota, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs. This means that if a dog bites someone, the owner is responsible for paying damages, regardless of whether the dog owner was negligent or knew the dog was dangerous or had any previous history of aggression. If you have been bitten by a dog, you may be entitled to recover your damages, including your medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering with a dog bite claim in Minnesota.
In Minnesota, most workers who are injured while on the job can receive workers compensation benefits to cover medical expenses, wage loss, and retraining benefits. In some situations, if a third party is at fault for causing your injuries while on the job, you may also have the right to bring a personal injury claim against the third party.
Never Rely on the Honesty of Insurance Companies
After you experience a personal injury, the at-fault party’s insurance company will likely contact you. While the insurance adjuster may seem concerned about your well-being and recovery, often, this is just a ploy to get you to let your guard down.
The insurance adjusters’ goal is to have you say or admit something they can use to reduce or eliminate the compensation you may be entitled to. It is best to limit your communications with an insurance adjuster until you have spoken with a personal injury attorney.
