PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS IN MINNESOTA
A MN plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer represents people injured in an accident that was not their fault, including car accidents, defective product injuries, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, etc. Personal injury lawyers either represent insurance companies or injured people, and some lawyers do both. Our personal injury lawyers are plaintiff’s attorneys, so we only represent the people who have been injured in an accident; we do not represent the insurance company to defend against claims.
THE BEST PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS ARE EXPERIENCED
Personal injury law in Minnesota is very specific and requires specialized knowledge. There are some lawyers who inappropriately will take on injury cases even though personal injury law is not their primary focus. However the insurance company only hires defense lawyers who are experienced and have the specialized knowledge about MN injury cases. Therefore, you should make sure that the lawyer you choose is experienced and has knowledge about MN personal injury law so that your interest will be properly represented. However, it is also important to work with a law firm where you will not get lost in the shuffle of too many cases. Unfortunately, some of the larger law firms process so many cases that that they cannot know who you really are. At our firm, you will meet with a personal injury lawyer from the beginning, and you will always be able to get us on the phone or have us call you back within 24 hours.
COMMON ISSUES FACED BY PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS IN MN
With personal injury cases in Minnesota, there are a number of issues that come up in accident cases that require the specialized knowledge and study of a personal injury lawyer. For example, there are different statutes of limitation for different types of MN personal injury cases. Most car accident personal injury cases in MN have a six year statute of limitations, but if there is a death involved the statute of limitations is three years. Many slip and fall personal injury cases have a six year statute of limitations, but injuries on property that are a result of a permanent improvement have a two year statute of limitations. Another important issue is having a MN personal injury lawyer who understands the medical issues involved in your case. For example, one of the most common defenses our personal injury attorneys see from the insurance companies is that our client’s injury was not caused by the accident because they had a preexisting condition. That is the type of issue that comes up every day for an experienced personal injury attorney in MN, and you do not want a lawyer facing that issue for the first time on your case.
