Injury Lawyer MN – Accident Attorney


A Minnesota personal injury lawyer represents people injured in an accident. This includes car accidents, defective product injuries, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, etc. Attorneys who practice injury law focus their practice on either helping people injured in an accident get compensation, or defending insurance companies against those claims. Our MN accident injury lawyers represent the people who have been injured in accidents; we do not represent insurance companies to defend against claims. Many of our injury cases are in Minneapolis and St. Paul, but we handle cases throughout Minnesota.


Personal injury law 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. Unfortunately, they may not have the specialized knowledge legal required. The insurance company will only hire experienced injury defense lawyers. Therefore, it is important to make sure that the attorney you choose also is experienced and knowledgeable in personal injury law so that your interests will be properly represented.

At the same time, 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 accident injury law firms in MN process so many cases that that they cannot know who you really are. At our firm, you will meet with an experienced accident injury attorney from the beginning.  You will always be able to get us on the phone, or we will call you back within 24 hours.

A top accident injury attorney in Minnesota will belong to the MN Association for Justice. Our law firm has supported this organization for many years. Pam Rochlin served on the Board of Governors for 10 years, and still contributes by writing articles or speaking at seminars when asked. The lawyers in MN for injury cases belong to the Minnesota Association for Justice for a number of reasons, including the educational opportunities, sharing resources, common lobbying and communication efforts.


When someone is injured in an accident, there are a number of issues that require the specialized knowledge and study of an experienced injury attorney. 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 for the surviving family to bring a claim. Similarly, the statute of limitations for an injury on someone’s property may be six years or two years. There are specific legal issues that must be considered when the injury is to a child.

Another issue that comes up in most serious accident injury cases is the relationship between different types of insurance. For example, with an automobile accident, there is liability coverage from the person causing the accident, medical payment coverage from the vehicle owned by the injured person, and sometimes underinsured or uninsured coverage from a third vehicle. Another example is when the injured person received benefits from their own health insurance, and then their health insurance wants to be reimbursed from any future settlement. These issues need to be addressed by an experienced injury attorney.

It is also very important to have an injury lawyer in MN who understands the medical issues involved in your case. For example, one of the most common defenses our injury lawyers see from the insurance companies is that our client’s injury was not caused by the accident.  In other words, a “preexisting condition.” That is the type of issue that comes up every day for an experienced personal injury attorney in MN, and you do not want a lawyer facing that issue for the first time on your case.
