Auto Accidents

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you only get one shot at getting a fair recovery from the insurance company. Don’t settle for less than your claim is worth. Our team of trusted, experienced injury lawyers and staff will start working on your behalf the moment we’re contacted. Once we obtain the details of the accident and your injuries, we then build a strategy to gain the greatest advantage in recovering compensation for your injuries and damages against all insurance companies involved.

Our attorneys handle every type of car accident that has resulted in injuries or wrongful death. This includes intersection collisions, rear-end collisions, and those involving distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and high-speed highway crashes. Even a “routine” rear-end collision can result in significant injuries, including spinal injuries, concussions, lost time from work, permanent disability or chronic pain. While Minnesota is a “no-fault” state, we still need to show negligence (fault) due to lack of attention, failing to obey a traffic law or other illegal conduct by the driver who caused the crash and your injuries. It’s rarely just “an accident.” And you are not automatically at fault just for being in a car crash. Do not let the insurance company tell you this. It’s not true!

Recovering what you’ve lost.

Our personal injury lawyers ensure clients receive proper care and treatment for their injuries without suffering out-of-pocket expenses. And we help manage the payout of ongoing medical treatment.  We help accident victims collect damages from the negligent driver’s insurance company, as well as your insurance companies for medical bills and required future care, lost wages, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.

Fatal car accidents, wrongful death claims.

In a fatal car crash in Minnesota, family members may sue for wrongful death damages, including economic loss and the value of their loved one’s life. The law for wrongful death damages in Minnesota is significantly different than in Wisconsin. We are licensed in both states to handle claims involving either or both states’ laws.
