A sudden and unexpected personal injury is an earth-shattering event in more ways than one. First, the victim must deal with the intense pain and suffering that usually acoompanies a serious injury. There is usually significant financial stress as well. While the victim is unable to work, high medical bills begin to tumble in. While all this is going on, the insurance comnpany calls almost constantly to demand a settlement.

At Carlson & Jones, our Brainerd Personal Injury Lawyers we help families through tough times like these. We connect victims with top area physicians. We also run interference with the insurance company. Above all, we collect compelling evidence for a damages claim in court. Substantial compensation is available to most accident victims. But to claim it, these individuals must have assertive and experienced attorneys.

What We Do

Most car accidents and other such incidents are not really “accidents.” Early 1900s factory owners first called job injuries “industrial accidents” to shift blame for these incidents onto the workers. The word has stuck ever since. But most injuries occur due to someone else’s negligence. Some examples include:

  • Car Accidents: Lightning strikes, wind gusts, and other freak “accidents” do cause a few car crashes. But human error causes over 90 percent of these incident. Alcohol impairment, fatigued driving, excessive speed, and distracted driving are the leading causes of car crashes in Brainerd.
  • Dog Bite Injuries: Animal attacks account for more than a third of homeowners’ insurance claims. Minnesota has a strict liability law. So, dog owners are responsible for damages even if the animal had shown no dangerous propensities. Victims only need prove causation in these cases.
  • Dangerous Products: In the rush to make money and recoup startup costs, many companies put profits before people. Some examples include the poorly-designed surgical mesh and the link between talcum powder and various forms of cancer.

Damages in these cases typically include compensation for both economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Additional punitive damages may be available as well, in some cases.

What You Should Do

If you were hurt in Brainerd because of someone else’s negligence, the first few hours after the incident are often critical. To maximize your chances for fair compensation, it’s important to do some things, and refrain from doing other things, during this period:

  • DO Call a Lawyer First: We can give you prompt advice that really makes a difference. It is usually a good idea to have our contact information nearby, because many victims are too seriously injured to make the call themselves.
  • DON’T Talk to the Insurance Company: You have no obligation to give the other insurance company a statement. And, if you speak to them, their lawyers may twist your words and use them against you later. So, leave this conversation to us.
  • DO Take Pictures: The victim/plaintiff has the burden of proof in court. So, it’s important to have as much evidence as possible. That especially includes things like pictures of personal injuries and property damage.
  • DON’T Say “I’m Sorry”: It’s quite natural to apologize, especially if you believe the incident was your fault. But an apology is another example of well-meaning words that can be used against you later. Try to say something like “How can I help you?” or “I’m sorry this happened to you.”
