After we carefully lay out your legal options, we never stop fighting for you. We advocate for victims in the courthouse, in the statehouse, and at the negotiating table.

What Causes Wrongful Death?

Vehicle collisions are normally the leading cause of injury-related death in Minnesota. These incidents often kill victims instantly. Some survive for weeks, months, or even years before finally succumbing to their injuries.

Unintentional poisonings, mostly drug overdoses, also kill a number of people. Many prescription opioid painkillers are more powerful and more addictive than heroin.

These causes may seem diverse, but they actually have a lot in common. Another party’s negligence causes most car crashes and most drug overdoses. As a result, the survivors might be entitled to substantial compensation.

Legal Issues

Driver negligence usually involves impairment, perhaps because of alcohol or fatigue, or the violation of a traffic law, like speeding or making an illegal turn. Both these acts constitute a lack of care in Minnesota.

Unintentional poisoning often involves a dangerous product. Pill manufacturers knowingly made more and more powerful pills and aggressively marketed them directly to consumers. Transportation companies and individual doctors might be partially responsible as well. Frequently, doctors and shipping companies enabled people to get pills and they did not ask questions.

Compensation in a wrongful death case usually includes money for economic losses, such as funeral and burial expenses, and noneconomic losses, such as the survivors’ grief and suffering.
