FAQs

If you or a loved one is suffering from an injury and  have questions regarding a potential claim, you are not alone.  See our frequently asked questions below, and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions about personal injury or your case.

What Types Of Damages Are Available?

In a personal injury claim, the law allows you to recover money damages. The money awarded in these claims is meant to compensate you for your losses, and they include such things as lost wages from work, loss of future earnings, the cost of past and future medical and funeral expenses, general money damages for your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, among other things.

How Much Is The Average Case Worth?

Injury awards vary case by case. The extent of the injury, financial losses, future financial losses, age, family status, and other relevant factors all affect your case value. Each case will have its own unique worth.

What If I Was Partly At Fault For The Accident?

In North Dakota and Minnesota, if you are partly at fault for causing the accident, that does not mean you do not have a case. If the other party (or parties combined) were more at fault than you, you have a claim that should be investigated and pursued.

How Long Will It Take To Settle My Claim?

The timeframe for your claim will vary. Some settlements take several months, whereas some may take years – which is why starting a claim by contacting us as soon as possible is always in your best interest.

What Does the term “Negligence” Mean?

Negligence simply means someone who failed to act as a reasonable person would be expected to act under the circumstances of your accident. For example, a driver who is looking at their cell phone as they approached an intersection is acting “negligently” because a reasonable person is expected to pay attention to the roadway when driving, not their cell phone.

Will My Personal Injury Claim Go To Trial?

Most parties try to avoid a trial and we will do everything in our power to make an efficient, out-of-court settlement for you, but we will take your case where it needs to go to ensure your maximum compensation – including a trial.

Do I Have A Personal Injury Case?

For a personal injury case to be successful, there must be proof that the party/parties responsible for your injury were negligent and that your injury was a direct result of that negligence. We can evaluate your claim and determine whether you have a case. Again, it would be smart to contact our office as soon as possible.

What is Road-Rage or Aggressive Driving?

Unfortunately, the term “road rage” is becoming more common and is often associated with severe crashes. “Road rage” is when an operator drives aggressively in response to another driver’s action. Commonly we see aggressive tailgating, honking horns, and swerving in front of vehicles to “cut them off” as examples of “road rage” or aggressive driving. The most extreme cases involve shots being fired from one vehicle at another vehicle.

How long do I have to file a Personal Injury Suit?

The time to file a lawsuit varies from case to case so it is important to contact our office immediately.

In North Dakota and Minnesota, most personal injury cases must be filed within six years from the date of the accident. Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years from the date of the accident in North Dakota and within three years in Minnesota. These laws are often subject to change so don’t hesitate to call one of our attorneys to discuss your claim.

Consult an attorney at our office about your options as soon as possible. Evidence, eyewitness information, and other facts crucial to your case are often lost with the passage of time, so you will want one of our lawyers to immediately investigate your case and protect your interests.
