How long do I have to file a Minnesota personal injury claim?
The statute of limitations, or the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim, in Minnesota is two years from the date the injury occurred.
I am out of work because of my injuries. How can I afford to pay a personal injury attorney in Minnesota?
At Heimerl & Lammers, our personal injury attorneys in Minnesota do not charge any fees if we do not win your case. That means, even if you are out of work, we will represent you with no upfront costs or fees until your case is won, so you may concentrate on your physical recovery while we focus on your financial recovery.
How much is my Minnesota personal injury claim worth?
Your personal injury claim is unique and will be thoroughly assessed by our attorneys to determine each factor associated with your financial recovery requirements. Those factors may include economic damages like medical costs and lost wages; non-economic damages like pain and suffering; and punitive damages, which are designed to punish the liable party who caused your injuries.
Am I required to give a statement to the insurance company after being injured in a Minnesota car accident?
No. Insurance companies work tirelessly to obtain a statement from an injured party to minimize their payment liability by manipulating the conversation, or misleading the injury victim to say things like, “I am okay.” Do not speak with the insurance company without an experienced personal injury attorney by your side, so you do not jeopardize your ability to pursue a financial claim.
Should I return to work after being hurt in an accident in Minnesota?
That depends on the instructions provided by your team of physicians. If you are too hurt to return to work, but are worried about your lost income, we will include all current and future lost wages in our personal injury claim when you are unable to work because of your injuries. If your doctor allows you to return to work, they may request that your employer modify your duties until you have fully healed. It is important to follow all your physician’s instructions and attend all medical appointments or follow up care.
