Answering Common Questions About Personal Injury Cases

An accident often leaves injured people with questions. The following are just a few questions that frequently arise after a person or company’s negligence leads to injuries.

What is my case worth?

Each case is unique, and the amount you may recover depends on the details of your case. Generally, catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases are worth more because the losses are greater.

When injuries are severe and permanent, the injured person may not be able to work, might require long-term care and may suffer from loss of enjoyment of life. Their pain and suffering might also be greater than that in a less serious case. They may require compensation for the loss of their future income and benefits and for a lifetime of medical expenses.

In wrongful death cases, the surviving family may recover additional compensation for funeral and burial expenses, emotional pain and suffering, and the personal loss of a loved one.

Why do I need a personal injury attorney?

Insurance companies don’t make a profit if they hand out sizable payments to injury victims. They have lawyers on staff who seek to reduce or deny payments in personal injury and wrongful death cases. You cannot fight them alone. With a team of lawyers on your side, however, you increase the chances of receiving a fair settlement or award.

What if I can’t afford an attorney?

We take personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we will handle all expenses for you during the case. When we settle a case or win at trial, we will take our fees from the settlement or award. You will pay nothing up front and nothing at all if we do not win compensation for you.

Will I have to go to court?

A large majority of cases settle out of court in negotiations, mediation or arbitration. Trials are a last resort when the opposition will not negotiate and refuses to offer a fair settlement. In the unlikely event that your case goes to trial, we will thoroughly prepare you for it and will be with you in the courtroom.

Is Minnesota a no-fault state for car accidents?

Minnesota is a no-fault state. As a result, drivers can make a claim from their insurance provider after a crash no matter whose actions led to that collision.

Steps To Take After A Car Accident

Unfortunately, car crashes and other motor vehicle collisions are common causes of injuries. Immediately after an accident, your health should be your first priority. Immediately check yourself and your passengers for injuries and contact emergency personnel if anyone is seriously injured. If you are able to do so, you should also move to safety.

While still at the scene, you should contact the police to report the accident. State law only requires you to report an accident if it resulted in injuries or less than $1,000 worth of damage. However, you may still want to make a report even if you do not believe that the damage was severe because you may uncover more serious injuries or damage to your vehicle after you leave the scene.

You should also take steps to preserve evidence at the scene. Collect the name, contact information and insurance information of any other drivers involved in the accident. Take photos of the vehicles from a variety of different angles to fully capture the damage. You may also want to document the names and contact details of any witnesses.

You should also take steps to protect your access to compensation. Contacting your insurance company to start your claim, seeking medical attention to ensure that your injuries are thoroughly documented and reaching out to an experienced personal injury attorney can all ensure that you receive support. An attorney can also answer any questions that you may have.
