A Minnesota personal injury occurs when a person has suffered some form of injury, either physical or psychological, as the result of an accident. The most common type of personal injury claims are traffic accidents, accidents at work, falls, dog bites, and injury as the result of a defective product. When the accident is the fault of someone else, an injured party may be entitled to damages.
Damages in a personal injury case may include past and future medical expenses, including hospital expenses, medication, chiropractic bills, physical therapy, and lost wages. In the event the personal injury results in a permanent impairment and the permanent impairment affects an individual’s ability to work in the future, the individual may be able to recover damages for loss of the ability to earn a living.
In addition to these economic losses an injured individual may be entitled to recover for past or future pain, suffering, and mental anguish.

Choosing The Right Personal Injury Attorney
There are a number of factors you should consider in choosing a personal injury attorney:
(1) How long has the attorney been in practice?
(2) Does the attorney have experience in similar cases?
(3) Is the attorney certified as a civil trial specialist?
(4) What is the attorney’s record in recovering damages for clients?
(5) Is the attorney prepared to take cases on a contingency basis?
What Are The Costs Of A Personal Injury Lawyer?
We take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means the attorney will cover all expenses and take his fee as a percentage of the recovery. There is no out of pocket cost to you.
What Is The Likelihood Of Going To Trial?
There is an increased use of mediation as a means of resolving personal injury claims. During the past several years this process has become one of the most widely used methods of arriving at a reasonable settlement in a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
When approached effectively, mediation ends the claim or litigation without further cost to the client. Mediation is an extremely cost-effective procedure that could save the injured person unnecessary litigation expenses. When it fails, the injured individual retains the right to use the regular procedures of litigation and jury trial.
