Seek Compensation for Your Personal Injury Accident

By definition, an accident is something that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally. While a car accident, slip and fall, or workplace injury may not have occurred intentionally, it likely occurred negligently. Negligence is any breach of accepted standards of care, resulting in someone else’s injury. The law offers a remedy to people injured through negligence – a personal injury claim with the civil courts of Minneapolis. A personal injury or wrongful death claim with the right attorneys could lead to payment for your:

How to Choose a
Lawyer in Minneapolis

You’ve already been through enough – now you have to think about legal matters and selecting a lawyer? At Knutson + Casey, we make your choice easy. We have decades of experience practicing personal injury law, and are confident in our abilities. Our dedicated attorneys put people first – they sympathize with your case and want to help you fight for just and fair compensation. You’ll meet friendly, caring, and highly knowledgeable lawyers from your very first visit to our local law offices. If you cannot come to our office due to your injuries or other circumstances, we’ll gladly visit your home, hospital, or recovery center to discuss your claim.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury claims are civil cases that involve damage or harm to a person’s body or mind. Based in tort law, these claims range from intentional torts to unintentional torts that involve negligence and strict liability. It is import to note here that a personal injury claim is based on the fact that a party behaved negligently or had a duty to act responsibly in a given situation and failed to do so. Therefore, an injury claim can be broken down into four distinct parts: A person had a duty of care, such as warning people of hazards on a piece of property or driving responsibly, that duty was breached, either intentionally or negligently, and that breach of duty directly caused someone to suffer real and measurable harm. If these four criteria cannot be proven, then it will be almost impossible to receive damages. Accidents in which no party is at fault do happen, so it is important to understand the basics of a personal injury claim to know whether or not you have grounds to file a claim.

 

Damages in Personal Injury Claims

Damages in personal injury claims are generally split into two different categories: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are easily quantifiable such as the repair or replacement of property, loss of present and future income, medical bills, or other expenses. Non-economic damages, however, are more subjective and include non-monetary loses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of companionship. A third type of damages, called punitive damages, can also be awarded for the purpose of punishment, but in the case of personal injury claims which involve civil wrongdoings, these are very rarely awarded unless there are gross examples of negligent behavior.

Resolving Injury Claims

Personal injury claims can reach resolutions through either settlement negotiations or a formal trial. With a good attorney, you can settle most claims without ever having to go to court and still receive fair compensation for damages. If you do need to go to trial, however, the aggressive litigators at Knutson+Casey are prepared to present your case in front of a judge and jury. We aren’t afraid to stand up against major insurance companies, government agencies, and other parties in pursuit of financial compensation for our clients.
