Scott County law firm delivers thorough assistance for negligence cases
In the South Metropolitan area, our firm handles all types of personal injury matters and always keeps clients informed of key issues relating to their case, including:
- Legal standard — When a Minnesota personal injury victim is partly responsible for the incident that hurt them, they can still obtain a recovery as long as they bear less fault than other parties. Under the state’s modified comparative negligence standard, the plaintiff’s compensation would be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to him or her.
- Statute of limitations — State law allows negligence victims six years to file a personal injury lawsuit, though prompt gives plaintiffs the best chance to gather needed evidence. Medical malpractice and strict liability claims must be filed within four years. Actions arising out of an assault have a two-year statute of limitations.
- Vehicle accidents — Minnesota’s no-fault insurance rules mean that people injured in car accidents must first turn to their own insurer for injury compensation. However, in more serious cases, you can file a lawsuit against the driver at fault. Our firm will represent you effectively in negotiations as well as in court if necessary.
During a complimentary consultation, our firm will review the facts of your accident and explain the legal merits of your case.

Aggressive law firm seeks justice in claims relating to dog bites
Dog bites can cause serious harm, but legal relief is available under certain circumstances. Minnesota law holds pet owners and handlers to a strict standard when it comes to unprovoked bites. It is not necessary to prove that previous incidents occurred in order to collect compensation for medical costs and pain and suffering. Our firm helps victims obtain appropriate damages for injuries that result from dog bites.
