Fighting For The Wrongfully Injured in St. Paul
When you are injured through the wrongdoing of another, there are several consequences that you may not anticipate. Many personal injuries carry with them severe physical, emotional, and financial burdens that can linger long after an accident or injury. Hiring an attorney who is experienced and effective is vital to safeguard your rights.
These claims can be difficult to navigate on your own. You need the help of a tough St. Paul personal injury attorney who knows the ropes. Insurance companies often try to force injured people to settle their claims for pennies on the dollar. However, it is important to remember that there are Statutes of Limitations on personal injury cases in Minnesota. Don’t let your right to compensation slip away.
Our firm offers strong and effective representation for a wide variety of injury claims in the Saint Paul-Minneapolis area as well as throughout greater Minnesota. Every personal injury claim is different, and our attorneys handle each case on an individualized basis. Meaning we work directly with you throughout the pendency of your case to ensure that you receive the representation you deserve.
We are well-prepared to champion your rights in a wide spectrum of cases, such as:
St. Paul Nursing Home and Medical Negligence
When nursing home facilities or medical professionals cause harm to a loved one, families are often devastated. The loss of trust compounds an already difficult time. Our compassionate lawyers stand strong to help families achieve the respect they deserve in nursing home abuse and medical malpractice matters.
St. Paul Motor Vehicle Accidents
From high-speed freeway accidents to crashes on neighborhood roads, car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in Minnesota. We hold wrongdoers and insurance companies accountable to maximize compensation for motor vehicle accident victims.
St. Paul Uber and Lyft Accidents
While ride-sharing companies can be a convenient alternative to other forms of transportation, accidents involving Uber and Lyft drivers bring complex issues. You need a lawyer with a strong command of insurance law principles and personal injury experience.
St. Paul Assault and Battery Injuries
Assaults in bars, restaurants, and other locations due to negligent security or other negligence are far too common. We handle a variety of assault injury cases, including taking on municipalities or cities when members of law enforcement cause injury due to excessive force.
St. Paul Slip-and-Fall Accidents
A minor slip on ice may be embarrassing, yet a fall-down accident can cause debilitating injuries. When a property owner is negligent, Minnesota law allows victims to seek justice in a personal injury claim. We are here to help.
St. Paul Construction Accidents
Workers’ compensation does not always provide sufficient compensation to cover the losses suffered in work-related accidents. If someone other than a co-worker or employer was negligent in causing a construction site accident, you need to know that a personal injury claim can supplement workers’ comp benefits. We will explain all of your legal options.
St. Paul Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Dogs, cats, exotic pets, and other animals can inflict serious injuries and infection in an animal attack. Loose pets and animals can cause accidents on Minnesota roads. Dog owners have a responsibility to control their pets, even if the animal has never shown signs of aggression. If you have been involved in an accident involving a domesticated animal or attacked by a neighbor’s dog, we are on your side.
The Long-Lasting Effects of an Injury Accident
Here at Sand Law, we look at all the effects of your injury. We know that injuries affect more than just your finances. Adapting to a new lifestyle is difficult in any circumstance, but especially when it’s been forced upon you due to an injury. Many people have to change their daily routines, hire in-home help, or work with a caretaker in order to achieve a lifestyle that resembles their life pre-injury. Not only that but injuries can have a great impact on your life mentally and socially, too.
Some people who experience traumatic personal injury accidents are left with post-traumatic stress disorder, pain attack disorder, depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. It can be difficult to socialize, rest, and relax. We take all of this into account when determining how much compensation you deserve. Of course, we look at your medical bills and other damages too, but it’s important to us that you receive compensation for the things an insurance adjuster might not see. For this reason, it’s important to keep a journal with notes about how you’ve been feeling and how your life has changed since the accident.
Types of Damages You Can Recover After a Personal Injury Accident
There are two different categories of damages that you can recover after a personal injury accident, economic and non-economic. Economic damages refer to losses associated with a specific monetary value. Non-economic damages are abstract and unassociated with a monetary value. Here are some common economic damages you may be able to recover:
- Medical bills
- Hospital visits
- Ambulance rides
- Medical equipment
- Physical therapy
- Doctor and specialist visits
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
Here are a few non-economic damages you may be able to recover:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
- Disfigurement and scarring
In some cases, you may also receive punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded to the victim as a way to further punish the at-fault party. Punitive damages are rare but may be awarded if the at-fault party acted with gross negligence or if this isn’t their first time being sued for something like this.
If a personal injury accident caused the death of your loved one, you may also be able to recover wrongful death damages, such as burial and funeral costs.
