Being injured in a car accident can leave you confused and unsure of what to do next. If your accident was caused by the negligence or carelessness of another party, it can be smart to hire a Minnesota car accident lawyer to help with your claim.

At Nelson Personal Injury, LLC, our legal team has decades of experience representing car accident victims and can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

However, it is also important that you make an informed decision regarding the accident attorney you hire. Here you can learn what to expect from our car accident attorneys so you can feel confident when you decide to work with us on your case.

Expect an Attorney Who Is Knowledgeable About the Law

To provide competent personal injury legal services in Minnesota, an attorney must be knowledgeable about applicable statutes and case law, and the court system. It is reasonable to expect the attorney you hire to have prior experience in and commitment to personal injury law. At Nelson Personal Injury, LLC, our legal team has over 50 years of combined experience representing car accident victims and has obtained millions of dollars for our clients.

Expect an Attorney with the Necessary Resources

In order to maximize your recovery, your attorney will need access to many resources. This includes knowing and finding the appropriate experts in the medical field, accident scene reconstruction specialists, vocational rehabilitation experts, investigators, and others. Finding and using the right experts, if necessary, can make a large difference in the success of your case.

It is reasonable to expect the attorney you hire to have a professional team to turn to for assistance with your case if the situation calls for it.

Expect an Attorney Who Is Proactive

When you hire a Minnesota car accident lawyer, you should never have to worry if they are being proactive to move your case towards conclusion.  Some situations call for a “wait and see” approach, but it is also important that if the case is ready, that it move forward appropriately.

Most insurance companies (and the attorneys that represent them) will attempt to drag a case out as long as possible before paying a settlement. It is up to your attorney to provide the needed documentation and information to ensure your case continues progressing through the process.

Expect an Attorney Who Is Prepared

The lawyers for the insurance company will look at every detail in every document provided related to the case. They will not hesitate to request information repeatedly. If your attorney ensures they include all related documentation with your initial claim, it will be challenging for the insurance company to draw out the process. For situations where the case goes to court, having a lawyer who is familiar with the file and with all the required documents will improve the likelihood of a successful outcome.  Our attorneys make sure to know each case and are prepared for all necessary court and other hearings.

Expect an Attorney Who Communications and Keeps You Informed

Your attorney should ensure you are kept up to date regarding what is happening with your claim and where it is in the process. You shouldn’t have to try to get in touch with your attorney for a status update. Instead, your attorney or another member of their law firm should offer regular updates about what is going on with the case.  At Nelson Personal Injury, LLC, we take pride in informing our clients as to what is happening. We will update you regularly to ensure you stay up to speed of what is happening.

Expect an Attorney Who Can Answer Your Questions

Most car accident victims are not familiar with personal injury law. In fact, if you are like many others, this may be your first experience with any legal matter. It is only natural to have questions. You should feel free to ask questions related to your case to the attorney you hire, and expect an honest and straightforward answer in a reasonable time period.  Our attorneys make sure to understand not only what we are doing with their case, but why we are doing it.

Expect an Attorney Who Works on a Contingency Fee Basis

Experienced and reputable personal injury attorneys will not require you to pay them upfront. Instead, they work on a contingency fee basis, which means they receive a payment when you do.  If we do not obtain a recovery for you, you are never charged for the time we spend on your case.
