Minnesota Accidents and Injuries
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, unintentional injuries are a leading cause of disability, death, and economic loss. In Minnesota, falls and motor vehicle accidents are the top causes of both unintentional fatal injuries and unintentional non-fatal hospitalization injuries. Other common accidental injuries include drowning, struck by/against injuries, and poisoning.
If you or a loved one suffered a severe or fatal injury due to another party’s reckless or wrongful behavior, we are here to help you seek justice. We can help you file an insurance claim against the negligent party or seek compensation in the Minnesota courts.
Personal Injury Cases Focus on Liability and Damages
According to the American Bar Association, every personal injury case rests on two primary issues – liability and damages. This means that to achieve compensation, you must show that the person who harmed you failed to exercise a reasonable duty of care, which resulted in your injuries and losses.
Who Is Liable for Your Accident?
Liability for your injuries depends on the type of accident you suffered. For example, if you were in a vehicle accident, the fault may rest with another driver, a defective vehicle or parts manufacturer, or even the owner of a dangerous roadway. In the case of medical malpractice, liability could fall with a doctor, nurse, hospital, or laboratory.
Our attorneys will look into your case and help you gather evidence. We can obtain medical records and bills, police reports, and available photographs or videos of your accident. We will locate and interview eyewitnesses and speak with medical experts and other professionals who can testify about your specific case.
What Losses Can You Pursue?
You can seek all out-of-pocket expenses stemming from your personal injury, including:
- Doctor and hospital bills
- Medical procedures
- Follow up care
- Long-term nursing assistance
- Medical equipment and devices
- Physical and cognitive rehabilitation
- Lost wages, earnings, and benefits
- Loss of your future earning capacity if you cannot go back to work
- Personal property damages, including vehicle repairs and replacement
- Household services, such as cooking, cleaning, and transportation fees
- Medically necessary home renovations, like widening doorways or adding ramps
- Medical travel expenses
Additionally, you can seek awards for the negative impact of your personal injury on your quality of life, known as awards for pain and suffering. This may include compensation for:
- Physical pain
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of a bodily function
- Loss of cognitive functioning
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Finally, if your loved one died from an injury caused by negligence, we can help you pursue a wrongful death case. Wrongful death is a personal injury action taken on behalf of a deceased party. Wrongful death awards include compensation for your loved one’s medical treatment, funeral and burial expenses, and lost wages, as well as compensation for the loss of your loved one’s guidance, comfort, and companionship.
