Let’s face it, nobody ever wants to think about litigation or lawsuits when they get hurt as a result of someone else’s conduct.  The first things to come to mind are usually questions like:  Am I going to be OK?  Am I going to be able to go to work?  How am I going to pay my medical bills?

Over time, however, the harms and losses caused by pain, disability and the cost of dealing with both can wear on a person.  Bills pile up, relationships are affected, and a person’s quality of life can seriously change for the worse.  When this happens, people usually have a much better understanding of why a person would call us when they are hurt.

We have helped thousands of people in Duluth and beyond over the last 35 years.   We understand the process and we understand what you are going through.  We offer the personal attention your case needs, and we combine that with the experience and skill only an established and reputable law firm can provide.

Every legal case has a time limit; if you wait too long to pursue a claim, you may be prevented from full and fair compensation on a technicality.  Also, having us get in contact with the insurance company immediately goes a long way to ensure they handle your claim in a timely manner.

Do not hesitate to call us.  Many times we will take time to talk to a person shortly after they get hurt.  At that time, of course, there is no way to know whether the injury will be serious enough to warrant the time, stress and risk of litigation.  However, we are more than happy to answer your questions about your case from the beginning to help make sure everything is in order should your condition have a serious or long term consequences.

We usually only accept cases on a contingency basis.  That means that we are paid as a percentage of the compensation we are able to help obtain – through settlement or verdict –  for you to make up for the harms and losses you have suffered.  If we accept your case and it turns out that your condition is not serious enough to qualify for compensation, or the insurance company is successful in avoiding responsibility for the harm it’s insured caused, you owe us nothing.  Our philosophy is that people should not need a pocket full of money to hire a lawyer in order to make up for the harm that someone else causes them.  Everyone – rich or poor, employed or not, young or old – is on equal footing with the professional insurance companies when you hire us.   When we decide to handle your case, we invest our time and effort in helping you obtain a full and fair result.

The vast majority of all cases across the country are settled out of court.  However, if the insurance company knows that your lawyer does not take cases all the way to a jury, it will affect the fairness of the compensation offered to settle.  As a result, it is important to hire a firm that will stand with you and fight for you.  Contact us for your free consultation.  In the meantime, feel free to look at some of the case specific examples we have actually handled below:
