Do I Need a Lawyer?

If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another person, you may have the right, under the law, to make a personal injury claim.

If a family member has died, you may have the right to bring a wrongful death claim.

Under Minnesota law, if you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision, you have the right to seek No Fault insurance benefits.

Do you need a lawyer? The answer is simple. Only a lawyer can tell you if you need a lawyer!!! Anyone injured in a serious, or even a not-so-serious, injury should immediately consult with a lawyer. Only a lawyer can tell you what your legal rights may be.

Most competent personal injury lawyers will offer a free first visit. The Schmidt Law Firm offers a free consultation to the victims of personal injury, during which the injured person will be given free advice about the potential claim. It’s free! It’s advice from an award-winning, 5-star law firm with 30 years’ experience in over 6,000 successful cases! There is no obligation. Why not take advantage?

Whether you need a lawyer after an injury will depend upon the specific facts of the accident. During the free consultation, the Schmidt Law Firm lawyers can explain your legal needs in regard to your specific claim.

In cases of injury due to motor vehicle crashes, whether automobile accidents or trucking accidents, the Minnesota No Fault Insurance law will likely apply. Under the Minnesota No Fault law, the injury victim has potential claims under the No Fault insurance and also against the the “at-fault” driver and his or her liability insurance company. Things can get very complicated and the help of a lawyer is required in most cases.

It is usually very important to immediately collect the evidence that is necessary to support a solid personal injury claim. The personal injury lawyers at the Schmidt Law Firm are experienced in collecting that evidence, in taking statements from important witnesses and otherwise doing the things that are important to establishing a solid injury claim.

In some cases, the victim of personal injury in a car accident case may also have a potential workers compensation claim if he or she was “on the job” at the time. They may have a products liability claim if the accident was caused by defective condition of the vehicle.

You should always consider calling a lawyer after a severe accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. Such accidents usually have many legal and insurance problems. If those problems are not handled promptly, they can seriously. affect your rights and the potential for recovering full and fair compensation.

Navigating a personal injury claim can involve “troubled waters” in dealing with the experienced professionals from the insurance company. The insurance company adjusters are not “friendly and compassionate”. Their job is to pay as little as possible. The experienced injury lawyers at the Schmidt Law Firm can help the injury victim to navigate those “troubled waters”.

Personal injuries are emotionally distressing-with pain and disability, medical bills, and often wage losses. The injury lawyers at the Schmidt Law Firm say “You need to deal with your injuries. Leave the worries to us!”
