Car Accident Personal Injury Lawyer


Our personal injury attorneys handle many different types of accident injury cases, but auto accidents are the type of case we handle most frequently. There is a simple reason for this: there are a lot of injury producing car accidents every year. In one recent year, almost 34,000 Americans were killed and over 2.1 million were injured in motor vehicle collisions across the country. Minnesota has car accident injury cases occur every day. This keeps our top personal injury lawyers busy helping people in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and throughout the state.


Our personal injury attorneys have handled tragic automobile crash cases where our client has had to be cut out of the smashed car and sent immediately by helicopter or ambulance to the hospital. However, with many car accidents, a person’s injury is not apparent at the scene of the crash. Likewise, sometimes an injury that initially appears minor becomes a serious and permanent problem.

The most frequent injuries from car accidents are neck and back pain from whiplash movement. This type of spine injury can sometimes heal within a few weeks on its own. If the injury is somewhat more serious, you may need temporary treatment from a chiropractor or physical therapist. Unfortunately, in quite a few of the car accident cases our top personal injury auto accident lawyers handle, the injuries are even more serious, and even more treatment is needed with injections or possibly surgery.

It is almost impossible to know shortly after a crash whether your accident injury is temporary or how it will progress, which is why we suggest you call and talk to a lawyer sooner rather than later. We will prepare your claim and be ready in case your injury turns out to be more serious. Our primary focus is to get you fair and complete compensation for your car accident injury.

Minnesota law provides a number of automatic insurance benefits if you are injured in an auto accident, including medical bills and lost wages, which our personal injury lawyers will fully explain to you. You are even entitled to some benefits if you caused the accident. See also, What are Minnesota “No-Fault” Benefits?

If the crash was caused by the negligence of someone else, you may also be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. See also, Do I have a claim against the other driver for my injuries?

To determine which driver was negligent in causing a crash, our top MN car accident personal injury lawyers often have to conduct an investigation into the circumstances of the crash. Sometimes what is written on the accident report is not a true description of what happened. Our experienced car accident personal injury attorneys have won cases throughout MN, even when the responding police or State Patrol officer initially attributed 100% fault for the collision to our client’s car.

Investigations can be particularly important in semi-trailer cases, pedestrian cases, and drunk driving cases. Investigation can also be particularly important in an intersection crash where someone ran a red light causing the car accident or fails to stop for a stop sign. If you have been injured in a car accident, the sooner you call and speak with an auto accident lawyer at our office, the sooner we can begin our investigation to prove or cement your case.
