Your Trusted Monticello Personal Injury Attorneys

At Nelson Personal Injury, LLC, we understand that the stakes are high if you experience a personal injury. Along with dealing with the injury caused by the accident, your ability to enjoy life and participate in activities that you once loved can be diminished. Some injuries, especially severe and permanent ones, may prevent you from working, and interacting with your family, friends, and children like you once did.

When you hire us to represent you on your personal injury claim, we will help you stay informed of what is going on with your case each step of the way.  We want you to not only understand what we are doing, but why we are doing it. We do not treat you like a nameless, faceless client – you are important, and we give your case the time and attention it deserves. Our entire team is committed to helping you obtain the fair compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Injuries can happen in many situations and settings. You may experience a personal injury in a car accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall incident, dog bite, or due to the general negligence of another person or entity (to name a few). You should not have to pay for the damages you have incurred if you have been hurt due to someone else’s negligence. Our Monticello personal injury attorneys will investigate your claim, negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurer or attorney, and if necessary, start a lawsuit in order to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Common Monticello Personal Injury Cases We Take On

As mentioned above, personal injury cases can take on many forms. Some of the most common cases we represent individuals for include the following:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Monticello roads are full of distracted and negligent drivers. Even if you are a safe driver and do everything in your power to avoid accidents, it can only take split second of someone else’s carelessness or negligence to cause an accident.

While motor vehicle accidents are scary, it is important to realize that they can happen anytime and result in permanent and life changing injuries. Our legal team will fight on your behalf to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.

Wrongful Death

It does not matter what causes the death of a loved one; it is always a situation that is extremely painful for the family members left behind. However, if the unexpected and sudden death of a family member is caused by someone else’s negligence, the heirs and next of kin of the deceased may have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim against the party or parties responsible for causing the death.  Under Minnesota’s wrongful death scheme, a trustee (usually a family member) is appointed by the court to act as trustee to represent all of the heirs and next of kin to recover damages for the wrongful death.  Recoverable damages include medical expense, economic losses, funeral expenses, and other pecuniary damages such as loss of society, comfort, guidance, and advice. At Nelson Personal Injury, LLC, if a loved one was killed due to another person’s carelessness or negligence, we can help you navigate the confusing wrongful death process by getting a trustee appointed by the court, and pursuing a claim to recover all legally available.

Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, those in the healthcare industry can make mistakes when treating a patient. If a mistake is caused by negligence, and this results in damages, it may be possible to hold the health care provider liable for their actions and the injuries caused.

Slip and Falls, and Trip and Falls

Property owners have a duty in Minnesota to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for those who are entered upon it.  If the property owner knows, or should have known, about a dangerous or hazardous condition on the property, they then have a duty to remedy or warn of the dangerous or hazardous condition.  If they fail to do so, and a person is injured, they may be liable for any resulting injuries and damages.  However, property owners have a number of defenses available to them for these types of claims, and insurance companies will do everything they can to deny or minimize your claim.  Typically, these claims can be difficult to prove, that is why a thorough investigation for the facts of the claim needs to be made as soon as possible after the injury.  This can include taking photographs of the condition of the property as it was at the time of the injury, getting witness names and contact information, and filing a report with the business or police. If a property owner’s negligence results in you slipping and falling or tripping and falling, and injuring yourself, our legal team can fight to help you recover your damages.

Dog Bites and Attacks

If you are attacked or bitten by a dog, the owner of the dog may be held strictly liable and responsible for your resulting damages.  Dog bites and attacks can cause severe and permanent injuries leaving scarring, nerve damage, and emotional injuries.  If you have been attacked or bit by a dog, we can help you recover the damages sustained, including your medical bills, wage loss, and pain, suffering, emotional distress and disfigurement.

Products Liability

If a defective product causes your injury, the manufacturer of the produce may be responsible for your injuries and damages.  These claims can be complex and you need a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to review the facts of your case to determine if a viable claim exists. We can investigate the claim and fight the insurance companies on your behalf to help you get the compensation you deserve.
