Accident Lawyer Minneapolis Injury Attorney


Our personal injury accident lawyers handle all kinds of accident injury cases in Minneapolis and throughout MN.  These accident claims are almost always against insurance companies. The Minneapolis accident cases our top lawyers handle include car accident cases, and motorcycle accident cases. Also, Minneapolis slip and fall cases, dog bite and dog attack cases, defective product cases, and others.

MN law requires that when a person is injured in an accident, their claim must be initially brought against the person causing the accident. In other words, you can’t directly sue the insurance company. However, the insurance company for the person who caused the accident will pay to defend the case and then pay the settlement. Our best Minneapolis attorneys deal with insurance companies about accident injury cases every day. In fact, we have been doing so for more than 25 years.


An experienced personal injury lawyer understands there are three important parts to an accident claim in Minneapolis or any other city: First, to have an accident injury case, there must be another party at fault. If you injure yourself in an accident and there is no fault by another party, you cannot successfully bring a compensation claim. The other party in a Minneapolis MN accident case can be a person or a business.

For example, if you are injured because you fell on something slippery on the floor at a store in Minneapolis, the accident claim is against the business. If you are injured because a homeowner did not properly salt their sidewalk, the accident claim is against a person. Similarly, if you are injured in a car accident by a truck being driven for a company, our accident injury lawyers in Minneapolis pursue the case against the company. The insurance issues can be complicated. However, you can meet with an injury attorney at our Minneapolis office for a free consultation to discuss your case.


The second requirement for a lawyer in an accident case in Minneapolis or anywhere in MN is that there must be an injury. In car accident cases, the injury has to meet a threshold. In other personal injury accidents, the injury has to at least be significant enough to make it worthwhile for the accident attorney Minneapolis to pursue the case. Our lawyers take personal injury accident cases based on a contingency. That means that we are paid a percentage of what we collect for the person injured in the accident. Therefore, we can only take a case if the injury is serious enough to make it worth the time and expense we incur.

It is not always apparent to people at the time of the accident how significantly they have been injured. Our personal injury lawyers will meet with you after a Minneapolis accident and provide you with a free consultation to discuss your case in more detail.


The third requirement our personal injury lawyers look for in a Minneapolis accident case is insurance. Unfortunately, it usually will not make sense to pursue a case where the person or business causing the accident does not have insurance. Usually, people who don’t have insurance for accidents they cause also don’t have money to pay damages for their accidents. This is true if you are injured in a car accident, slip fall, dog bite, etc.

Unfortunately, the penalties for not having insurance are minimal. However, if you are injured in a Minneapolis car accident caused by an uninsured driver, a top accident attorney from our office will also help you get compensation from your own uninsured motorist coverage.
