Losing a loved one is devastating and losing them suddenly because of another person’s negligence makes the matter even more emotionally daunting.

When you hire an experienced and dedicated Minnesota wrongful death lawyer to represent you and fight for compensation, you can grieve for your loved one without having to worry about finances.

Specializing In A Wide Range Of Wrongful Death Cases

Wrongful death occurs in many ways ranging from drunk drivers to a doctor misdiagnosing a condition. Some of the most common reasons for wrongful death include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Brain injury resulting from an accident
  • Negligent childcare workers
  • Defective products
  • Fires and explosions
  • And much more!

Any accident has the potential to cause someone’s death. When it occurs, your attorney can fight for you by utilizing the facts. Every possible tool from police reports to recreating the accident scene can be used by your Minnesota wrongful death lawyer to create a strong case. You may be dealing with funeral expenses, hospital bills, loss of support, and other unexpected expenses that require a skilled attorney to recover compensation for.

Advocating For Your Interests

When your attorney advocates for you, it can start with trying to reach a settlement with insurance companies. Sometimes settlements are successful and the victim’s family receives the funds needed to get on their feet on their own. When at the settlement table, we will work toward a settlement that is enough to adequately compensate you so you can receive funds sooner rather than later. If the insurance company refuses to pay meaningful compensation and you wish to pursue the matter further, then we can take the case to court so a jury can decide. Throughout this entire process, we will advise you so that you can make informed decisions about the outcome of your case. By presenting you with options and recommendations, you stay in control of the case.
