ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEYS
A Minnesota personal injury lawyer represents people injured in accidents including car accidents, defective product injuries, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, etc. Attorneys who practice personal injury law in MN usually focus their practice on either helping people injured in an accident, or defending the insurance company against those claims. Our MN accident injury lawyers only represent the people who have been injured in an accident, with many of our injury cases in Minneapolis and St. Paul; we do not represent insurance companies to defend against claims.
THE BEST INJURY LAWYERS IN MN ARE EXPERIENCED
Accident injury law in MN is very specific and requires specialized knowledge. There are some lawyers in MN who will take on personal injury cases even though personal injury law is not their primary focus, so they may not have the specialized knowledge required. However the insurance company always hires defense lawyers who do have experience and specialized knowledge about MN injury cases. Therefore, if you have been injured in an accident, it is important to make sure that the lawyer you choose does have experience and knowledge in Minnesota injury law so that your interests 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.
Many of the best injury lawyers in MN belong to the Minnesota Association for Justice. Our law firm has supported this organization for many years, and Pam Rochlin served on the Board of Governors for 10 years, and still contributes by writing articles or speaking at seminars when asked. A top personal injury attorney in MN belongs to the Minnesota Association for Justice for a number of reasons including the educational opportunities, sharing resources, common lobbying and communication efforts.
COMMON ISSUES FACED BY A MN INJURY ATTORNEY
When someone is injured in an accident in Minnesota, there are a number of issues that require the specialized knowledge and study of an experienced personal injury lawyer. For example, there are different statutes of limitation for different types of 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. An equally important issue is having a Minnesota personal injury lawyer who understands the medical issues involved in your case. For example, one of the most common defenses our MN injury lawyers see from the insurance companies is their claim 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 lawyer in Minnesota, and you do not want an attorney facing that issue for the first time on your case.
