Jones Justice Means We Are Passionate About Doing Right By You

The Help You Need After A Car Accident

If you were injured in a car accident in Minneapolis or the surrounding area, you need a motor vehicle accident attorney with the ability to fight back against the insurance company’s deny-delay-defend tactics. These unscrupulous auto insurance companies make it exceedingly difficult for injured parties to collect the money necessary to cover the medical bills and lost wages resulting from the injuries sustained in a car accident, even when the auto accident is not the injured party’s fault.

At the Law Office of Jeffrey A. Jones, P.A., our Minneapolis car accident lawyers are well-equipped and experienced in dealing with insurance companies. We help injured people across the state recover the benefits they deserve so that they can move on with their lives.

With our office in Golden Valley, we represent those who have been seriously injured in car accidents across Minnesota, including:

  • Auto defects product liability – Motor vehicle manufacturers have a history of falling short of safety standards. The oversights can result in unnoticed defects.
  • Construction zone accidents – Construction sites carry inherent dangers, even with safety standards in place. Vehicle accidents of all forms can result in severe injuries and deaths.
  • Distracted driving – Distracted drivers represent an ongoing, clear and present danger. Despite countless campaigns to prevent cellphone use and other distractions, injuries and deaths continue on roads nationwide.
  • Drunk driving – Initiatives have tried to discourage drunk driving. Yet, someone’s night out on the town too often results in getting behind the wheel of a car, resulting in life-threatening, if not life-ending, consequences.
  • Electric vehicle (EV) – Regardless of the power source, electric vehicle collisions usually have the same outcome. Regarding EVs, battery damage could result in dangerous and deadly fires.
  • Highway accidents – With higher speed limits, the possibility of accidents only increases. Countless drivers exceed those already excessive miles per hour, resulting in collisions.
  • Hit-and-run accidents – When a driver – insured or uninsured – collides with another vehicle and leaves the scene, the accident goes beyond personal injury claims and could result in criminal charges.
  • Passenger injuries – Aside from improved technology and seatbelt warning systems, vehicle occupants are not immune to injuries. Regardless of where they are sitting, serious and deadly injuries can still occur.
  • Rear-end collisions – One of the most common types of accidents, a sudden crash from behind can cause significant damage. Occupants may suffer life-altering injuries, particularly to the spine, back and neck.
  • T-bone/side-impact accidents – Accidents can result in more direct and dangerous injuries, with countless fatalities. Sadly, these collisions are easily avoidable if drivers are more attentive.
  • Texting while driving – Distracted driving occurs when a driver looks at a smartphone instead of the road ahead. Though Minnesota has made texting while driving illegal, it continues to be a top cause of accidents.
  • Uninsured/underinsured drivers – State laws impose criminal penalties for uninsured drivers, but many people still drive without insurance. When they cause an accident, an attorney can offer guidance on these complicated personal injury claims.
  • Vehicle rollovers – A violent impact from a distracted or impaired driver can send a vehicle into a rollover. For those who do not wear seatbelts, these types of accidents often result in fatalities.
  • Workplace car accidents – These collisions combine personal injury with workers’ compensation claims for employees who drive as part of their job and cannot return to work for an extended period.

Our Guidance Can Be Your Advantage

Car accidents are often complicated, involving several potentially liable parties. We work with an extensive network of experts, including:

  • Accident investigators, reconstruction experts and other specialists to establish liability
  • Medical experts who can determine the nature of your injuries, including the likelihood of a full recovery and the estimated cost of your medical care
  • Forensic accountants and life care planners to estimate lost income and other economic losses

In addition to this vast network of specialists, our lawyers have the financial resources, knowledge and determination necessary to fight for full compensation for your physical, emotional and financial losses caused by the injuries sustained in your accident, from the negotiation and mediation stages to the courtroom.

Navigating The Aftermath: Essential Steps Following A Serious Car Accident

Contacting your insurance provider is a necessary step, but it’s advisable to do so with caution. Provide them with a basic account of the incident, but hold off on detailed statements or agreements until you’ve had the chance to consult with a personal injury attorney. An attorney can offer you guidance on how to navigate the complexities of your claim and help you negotiate with insurance companies to protect your rights and interests.

Be Diligent With Your Recovery

As you move forward, continue to follow your doctor’s medical advice and keep all follow-up appointments. Keep a thorough record of all documents related to the accident and your medical care. These records will be essential in demonstrating the extent and impact of your injuries. In the digital age, it’s also wise to be mindful of your online presence; avoid discussing your accident on social media platforms, as such posts can be used in legal proceedings.

Recovery from a serious car accident is a journey that encompasses both your physical and emotional well-being. Take the time you need to rest and heal, adhering to professional medical guidance. When you’re ready to seek compensation for the hardships you’ve endured, reach out to a reputable car accident attorney who can help you build a strong case to secure the justice and support you deserve.
