BEING TREATED AT HCMC? OUR INJURY LAWYERS MAKE HOSPITAL VISITS
Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis MN is an excellent hospital and has excellent doctors and staff. HCMC treats acute trauma cases of all kinds, every day. In fact, in many serious accident cases, injured victims are flown there by helicopter or airplane from greater distances or other hospitals just to get their specialized care. Our experienced personal injury lawyers regularly represent clients who are being treated at HCMC in Minneapolis. Trauma cases at HCMC include severe burns, traumatic car accidents, explosions, brain injury, and many other types of injuries. HCMC is set up for a high volume of serious accident injury cases. The ICU units in particular are very good. When they say intensive care, they mean intensive care. Our accident injury attorneys have seen situations where there are 2 or more staff in the hospital room just about 24/7.
Our personal injury lawyers are always willing to come to Hennipen Count Medical Center to meet with someone injured in an accident. It is often important for the personal injury lawyer to meet the injury victim early on to start gathering facts and investigating the case. We also like to get photographs from the beginning to document the injury, and we always appreciate the opportunity to at least briefly meet the doctors and staff. Typically a top injury attorney is cautious about having a client sign legal documents while they are in the hospital, particularly if the client is medicated. This includes a retainer agreement to hire us. However, if the injured in accident lawyer determines the client is clearly able to think coherently and understands what they are doing, we will sign the retainer agreement at the hospital so that we can get authorizations for police reports, medical records, etc.
Our personal injury attorneys also will meet with the injured person’s family near Hennepin County Medical Center or another hospital. Sometimes our lawyer needs to get started with the investigation quickly and the client is completely incapacitated or unconscious. Obviously if it is a child that was injured in the accident, we will deal directly with the parents. However, an attorney will meet with a spouse at HCMC or other hospital and can start the case with the consent of the spouse in many situations. Sometimes we will do the same with the children of an elderly person that was injured in the accident.
