Were You in a Car That Was Hit by a Negligent Driver?

Contact a Lawyer

If you were in a car crash caused by a negligent (careless) driver, you may have the right to sue that driver. Before our lawyers file a lawsuit against a driver, we look for evidence that proves the other driver caused the accident. We then make the case that the driver’s negligence caused the crash.

How Was Your Life Impacted By Your Car Accident?

A serious car accident can have a lasting impact on your life. If you were seriously injured, you might not be able to return to work, you might have lasting pain, and you might not be able to enjoy many of the parts of life that you did before your accident. Our lawyers understand this, and have helped hundreds of people in your situation get the help they need.

We Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable

You can sue a negligent driver if there is evidence that the person was at fault, even in part, for the crash and your resulting injuries. Our lawyers have handled hundreds of these cases. For example, one of our clients was t-boned at an intersection when he had the right-of-way. The other driver was reading a map and ran a stop light. Our client was badly hurt with a broken pelvis and head injury. Attorney Brendan Flaherty (612-338-0202) won a large settlement for this client.

How Much Is Your Case Worth?

Proving Your Case

A personal injury or wrongful death case is usually based on negligence, which means doing something in a careless way. To obtain compensation from the operator of a vehicle (actually, his or her insurance company), your attorney will need to prove 4 elements:

  • The driver had a duty;
  • That duty was breached (broken);
  • This breach caused the accident;
  • The accident resulted in damages to you (medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, etc.).

Minnesota Traffic Law

Under Minnesota traffic laws, the operator of a vehicle has “duties” under the law to passengers in his or her vehicle, people in other motor vehicles (cars, buses, motorcycles), people riding bicycles and pedestrians. Any of these people can sue the driver and his or her insurance company for compensation if they are injured because of carelessness, including texting, reading a map, eating, falling asleep or just daydreaming.

The operator of a motor vehicle has the following duties:

A violation of a traffic law is prima facie evidence of negligence, meaning it is considered negligence if the defendant fails to introduce evidence of an excuse or justification for violating the traffic law.
