CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS MINNEAPOLIS MN – INJURY ATTORNEY
Auto accident injuries occur in Minneapolis every day. This is not surprising when you consider the number of car crashes in the United States. In 2009, almost 34,000 Americans were killed and over 2.1 million were injured in motor vehicle collisions, and our Minneapolis car accident lawyers can tell you that our city definitely gets its share. Many auto accidents in Minneapolis only result in damage to the car which is easily fixed. However, auto accidents where people are injured are the cases that our car crash attorneys handle most frequently. We see many rear-end accidents along Highway 35w, Highway 494, Highway 694, Highway 94, etc. But our Minneapolis lawyers also handle many car accident cases every year on city streets where someone runs a stop light or stop sign, drives on the wrong side of the road, drives too fast for the conditions, or drives drunk.
MINNEAPOLIS CAR ACCIDENT INJURY LAWYER
Our Minneapolis personal injury attorneys have represented car accident victims where our client’s injuries are so serious they had to be taken out of the vehicle with the Jaws of Life and sent immediately by helicopter or ambulance to the hospital. However, sometimes the injury from an auto accident are not apparent at the scene of the crash, as it has been our top lawyers’ experience that an injury that appears minor at first can sometimes become a serious and permanent problem. The most frequent injuries our car accident attorneys see in Minneapolis and around MN are neck and back pain from whiplash type movement. Many times a back or spine injury will heal within a few weeks on its own. However, where there is muscle or disc damage from a car accident, the pain can be long lasting, or even permanent. Often, a doctor will recommend treatment from a chiropractor or physical therapist. Unfortunately, in quite a few of the Minneapolis MN car accident cases our top injury attorneys handle, even more treatment is needed with injections or even surgery. It is almost impossible to know shortly after a car crash whether your injury is temporary or how it will progress, which is why we suggest you call and talk to a top car accident lawyer in Minneapolis MN sooner rather than later. You will talk to a car crash attorney and we will prepare your claim and be ready if your injury turns out to be more serious.

CAR ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION – MINNEAPOLIS LAWYERS
To determine which driver was at fault in causing a car accident, a lawyer often has to conduct an investigation into the circumstances of the crash. Car accidents in Minneapolis are often not a high priority for the Minneapolis police – they are more interested in violent crimes. Therefore, our auto accident lawyers have seen many cases where the Minneapolis police don’t write an accident report. Sometimes what is written on the car crash report, particularly in Minneapolis, is not an accurate depiction of what happened or who was at fault. If you have been injured in a car accident, the sooner you call us and speak with an attorney, the sooner we can begin our investigation to determine if the other driver was at fault, and to prove or cement your case. Our auto accident lawyers have won cases in Minneapolis MN even when the responding police officer initially attributed 100% fault for the collision to our client’ car or motorcycle. Investigations can be particularly important in semi-tractor cases, pedestrian cases, and drunk driving cases.
