DO I NEED A LAWYER AFTER ACCIDENT INJURY?
If you have been injured in an accident that was another person’s fault, you should at least consult a personal injury lawyer to learn your rights. It is especially important to talk with an experienced MN injury attorney who knows and understands Minnesota’s specific injury laws. Our top rated personal injury lawyers have over 25 years’ experience and have helped hundreds of people injured in an accident. We will provide you with a free initial consultation to advise you of your legal rights and tell you if you have a legal claim.
If you have a potential case, our personal injury attorney will make sure that YOUR RIGHTS are being protected. The insurance companies (even your own insurance company) are looking out for their interests, not yours. It is the insurance company’s goal to pay as little as possible on every claim. You may have medical bills, lost time from work, difficulty performing daily activities at home, permanent scarring, and other issues that require compensation.
When thinking about if you need a lawyer after being injured in an accident, you should understand that a MN personal injury lawyer will represent YOUR BEST INTERESTS and make sure you are treated fairly. Studies done by the insurance companies themselves show that people with lawyers get much more compensation for the same type of injury than someone without a lawyer.
Obtaining greater compensation is only one of the reasons to hire an injury lawyer. There are often many legal forms to be filed after an accident – which can be very confusing. There are also certain legal deadlines and rules that must be met in order for you to be able to pursue an accident injury claim, and these are specific to injuries that occur in MN, i.e. every state is different. Additionally, you may be obligated under your health or disability insurance policy to pay back your health or disability insurance companies for some or all of your medical bills or disability wage loss out of your settlement.
