Personal Injury Lawyers MN – Do Rich People Get Bigger Settlement


Our personal injury lawyers represent people from all walks of life. Of course, this includes the rich as well as people of more modest means. Our cases involve car accidents, dog bites, defective products, and other accident injuries. These types of incidents can happen to anyone.

The purpose of our representation is to help people get appropriate compensation after they are injured. Obviously, that starts with medical bills and other expenses. However, pain, suffering, and disability is also an important part of the compensation we get for people.

Medical bills are pretty straightforward. Generally, we get the bills, prove that they are related to the accident, and make sure they are appropriately paid. The amount of the charge is stated on the medical bills, and that is the amount that is paid. Other compensation, however, is not so straightforward. Compensation for pain, suffering, and disability, is whatever is “reasonable.”  But what is reasonable. Also, should we look at it from the perspective of the injured person or the person causing the injury?

One issue that came up recently is whether compensation needs to be higher for someone who is already wealthy. $100,000 for pain and suffering may be a lot of money to some people, but a small amount of money to someone who already is wealthy. Should that be taken into account? Probably not. That is why we have the jury system. A jury will usually contain a cross-section of the community. Therefore, people from different socio-economic classifications will determine together what is reasonable.
