When should I get an attorney for a car accident?

The sooner you reach out to a lawyer for help the better, but your health comes first. Before you contact us for the help you need with your claim, be sure to report the accident to the police and ask for an ambulance if you need one. Once you have contacted the authorities and gotten the necessary medical attention, reach out to us to proceed with your recovery process.

Why should I get a car accident attorney?

The services a personal injury attorney offers can be instrumental in the success of your claim. We can manage the details of your case while you focus on your health, identify a fair compensation goal that reflects the current and future costs of your injuries, negotiate for an outcome you deserve or fight for in court if necessary.

What to do after a car accident when it is not your fault?

There are many mistakes that can cost you the compensation you deserve, even when you are not at fault. After an accident, make sure you do not apologize for an accident you did not cause, as the liable party may try to use that against you. Additionally, make sure you do not discuss the details of your case without your attorney present, as saying the wrong thing can give an insurance company an opportunity to minimize the compensation they provide you. Lastly, be sure to keep thorough documentation of every detail related to your case, including medical information, lost income and property damage expenses to help bolster your compensation claim.

What is considered a serious car accident?

Serious accidents involve long-term injury consequences, known as catastrophic injuries. These injuries include broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), nerve damage, paralysis, loss of a limb, and scarring or burning. Because these injuries can affect you for a lifetime, the compensation you receive should reflect those costs.

How long after a car accident can you file a lawsuit?

In Minnesota, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a compensation claim. While this may seem like plenty of time to pursue a settlement, keep in mind these cases can take months or longer in some cases.
