Minnesota attorney obtains strong results in cases involving vehicle collisions
In Minnesota, approximately 30,000 people a year are injured in auto accidents. Much of this harm is caused by driver negligence such as speeding or distracted driving. If you’ve been hurt in the Minneapolis-St. Paul South Metro area, we can advise you on legal issues including:
- No-fault insurance laws — Minnesota is a no-fault insurance state, so if you’ve been hurt in a crash, claims are filed with your own insurer regardless who was at fault. However, we can file a lawsuit against the liable driver if your injury damages exceed $4,000 in wages or medical costs, if you have a permanent injury or disfigurement.
- Statute of limitations — You have six years from the date of the accident to file an auto accident lawsuit, but evidence and witnesses can disappear quickly. Taking prompt action is the best way to maximize your likelihood of success.
- Pedestrian accidents and PIP — Severe, permanent harm can occur when a pedestrian is struck by a car or truck. Under the state’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law, each vehicle owner is required to carry at least $20,000 in auto accident coverage. This coverage extends to injuries that occur when you’ve been hit by a vehicle while walking.
Our personal injury experience means that clients involved in auto accidents receive the highest levels of advocacy and service, staring with a free initial consultation.
Knowledgeable advocate handles truck accident litigation
Truck crashes have the potential to cause catastrophic injury. They also present complicated legal challenges that are best handled by a seasoned litigator. We represent victims of commercial vehicle collisions by drawing upon our detailed knowledge of the special regulations that apply to large trucks. Our firm can help determine if the crash was caused by excess load weight, an overworked driver or some other unlawful conduct or condition. Many parties can be liable for truck accidents, including fleet owners and maintenance companies, so you need a skilled attorney who will work to hold each responsible party accountable.
Skilled lawyer represents motorcycle riders in negligence claims
Motorcycle riders have road rights that are often overlooked by drivers of larger vehicles. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, we will advocate for your rights. We have the resources to determine the full extent of the harm you’ve suffered and vigorously pursue the negligent drivers and their insurance companies for fair compensation through a trial or favorable settlement.
