We understand that motor vehicle accidents of any type create serious hardship, loss, and damages that can be overwhelming physically, mentally, and financially. Motor vehicle accidents involving serious injury or wrongful death should be trusted by experienced motor vehicle accident attorneys so that the insurance companies do not take advantage of the situation with a lowball offer or deny your claim outright.
Minnesota Motor Vehicle Accident Overview
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that auto accidents with serious injury occur about every 14 seconds in the US; additionally, roughly 37,000 people are killed in motor vehicle accidents each year. These numbers amount to millions of people who are left seriously injured or permanently disabled with all the financial strain that comes with these types of injuries.
A Woodbury motor vehicle accident may involve a:
- car accident,
- pedestrian hit and run,
- semi-truck crash,
- Collision between a bike and car,
- bus accident,
- drunk driving accident,
- motorcycle crash,
- or rideshare accidents, like Uber or Lyft.
Additionally, if the motor vehicle accident was caused by a faulty part or malfunction, the injury claim could be a viable option for a third-party product liability claim.
Common Injuries in a Woodbury Motor Vehicle Accident
Woodbury motor vehicle accidents can result in many different types of injuries or death. These injuries can be costly, resulting in thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. While some injuries can be treated quickly, others may require long-term care, multiple surgeries, and in-home care.

- Wrongful death

What Are My Rights in a Woodbury Accident?
If you have been injured in a Woodbury motor vehicle accident, you have the right to seek financial compensation for your losses and injuries, known as damages.
Minnesota personal injury laws allow victims to recover financial compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress,
- Disfigurement and Disability.
Recovering the above damages is not an easy task and should not be handled by a person on their own. Insurance companies use a team of lawyers to help them with all their cases and will use this expertise to lower or deny your claim. In order to prevent this, you should hire an experienced Woodbury accident lawyer that understands both the state laws and the tactics of the insurance companies.
Sand Law has offices in St Paul, White Bear Lake, and Woodbury. We use these three offices in a coordinated way, along with experts, investigators, and accident reconstructionists, to get you the compensation you deserve and to pursue your case to the fullest extent necessary.
Evidence Used in a Motor Vehicle Accident Case
In a car accident case, you’ll need to be able to provide evidence to prove that the other party should be held financially responsible for your losses. If you hire an attorney, they’ll investigate the car accident for you and gather evidence on your behalf. Types of evidence used in motor vehicle accident cases include:
- Photos and videos (either personal or retrieved from witnesses, security cameras, or dashcams)
- Witness statements
- Your personal statement
- Expert witness testimonies
- Medical bills
- Statements from employers
How Do I Know Which Minnesota Lawyer to Hire?
Choosing a Minnesota accident attorney to handle your accident claim is not an easy decision to make. There are so many options out there—from TV and radio commercials to internet ads and nationwide campaigns—that making the right decision can be hard. Settlement mills (firms that handle a large number of cases as quickly as possible, regardless of results) are prolific and have found a million ways to trick clients into handling them. To avoid this, investigate the personal injury attorneys you are considering and take the following into account:
- Does the law firm have good reviews and ratings? What is their standing with the Minnesota Bar?
- Does the firm have the resources to investigate your claim, hire proper experts, and fight your claim all the way to litigation?
- Does the law firm you’re considering have a reputation for taking personal injury cases to court, or do they always settle even if it’s not the best thing for the client?
- What experience does your lawyer have in handling personal injury cases? Do they also handle family law, business law, criminal law, and anything they can get to make money? This is a sign of a jack of all trades and a master of none. Though attorneys can practice in multiple areas, reputable attorneys would have different attorneys and office locations for these non-injury cases.
- Does the attorney bother to meet with their clients, or do they just pass off these important meetings to other staff? If an attorney doesn’t meet face to face with a client, there is a good chance they’re a settlement mill.
Sand Law has the necessary financial resources and trial experience to take on the biggest insurance carriers, corporate wrongdoers, and powerful insurance defense firms so that you can get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
