Damages Our Burnsville Personal injury Lawyers May Recover
In a successful personal injury case, our Burnsville personal injury lawyers can win a settlement for compensatory damages. These include both the economic and non-economic damages you received from the accident.
Economic damages, also called special damages, cover your financial losses such as:
- Medical bills and rehabilitation costs and continuing care
- Past and future wage loss
- Property damage.
Noneconomic damages, also called general damages, are compensation for damages that do not have a specific dollar value, but negatively impact your life, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and anguish
- Loss of consortium and quality of life.
In some rare cases, you might also be able to recover punitive damages, which are meant to punish the defendant and serve as an example to deter such actions in the future. According to Minnesota law (Minnesota statute § 549.20), damages may be awarded when clear and convincing evidence is available that shows the defendant had deliberate disregard for the rights or safety of others. Wisconsin law (Wisconsin statute § 895.043) places a $200,000 limit on the amount of punitive damages available.
Damage Amounts You May Receive
There is a wide range of damage amounts, from the thousands to millions of dollars, that may be awarded in a successful personal injury case. The amount you may receive depends on the individual circumstances of your case and factors that include:
- The extent and permanence of your injuries and whether you will require continuing care
- Actual costs of your losses and expenses
- Lost earnings and whether you will be able to work in the future
- The availability of insurance coverage and defendant assets
- Whether a wrongful death was involved
- The individual jurisdiction, judge, and jury where your case is heard
- The skill and negotiating power of your attorney
In all cases, our personal injury attorneys in Burnsville will fight for the optimum award possible.
Personal Injury Lawyers in Burnsville, MN, Must Prove Negligence
Proving negligence is a main component of a personal injury claim. To win your case, our team at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law will fully investigate your case to find evidence to show that another party — the defendant in the case — was negligent and at fault for causing the accident that resulted in your injuries, and therefore should be held liable.
Proving negligence legally requires showing the following elements:
- Duty: The defendant owed a duty of care to the victim not to cause harm.
- Breach: The defendant breached that duty by actions or failure to act.
- Cause: This breach caused the accident that resulted in your injuries.
- Damages: You suffered damages as a result.
In some cases, there may be multiple defendants that contributed to the accident. An example would be a case where a driver hit you but lost control of the vehicle because the parts were faulty and failed. In addition to the driver, defendants may include the manufacturer of the defective part or a mechanic who installed the part incorrectly. If the driver who hit you was intoxicated, we may be able to add the people who supplied the alcohol, especially if a bar over-served the drunk driver or if the drunk driver is an underaged minor and an adult bought the alcohol.
Our personal injury lawyers in Burnsville, MN, will look to identify all potentially liable parties, as they all may have assets and insurance that can go toward a settlement. The sooner you have us on your side, the better, as it takes time to build a case; and it’s important to start investigations quickly, while evidence is fresh and witnesses can be found.
Personal Injury Lawyers in Burnsville, MN, Answer Your Questions
When you suffer a serious personal injury, it’s natural to be confused and unsure of what to do. While your concerns are best addressed at your free consultation, here are some answers to questions our personal injury lawyer are often asked, to get you started:
Should I talk to insurance companies?
No. The less you say to insurance companies, the better. Insurance companies are out for profit and use tactics such as trying to get you to say something that indicates you were at fault, or trying to get you to accept a quick settlement for less than your case is worth. Tell the insurance company to speak to your attorney and let Tyroler Law handle all dealings and negotiations with insurance companies.
What if I did something to contribute to the accident?
Minnesota is a comparative fault state, which means that you can collect a settlement as long as you are 50% or less at fault for the accident. If you are partially at fault, your damages will be reduced by the percentage you are at fault, but you can still collect the percentage that the other parties were at fault. For example, if your case is worth $100,000 but you are 20% at fault for a car accident, our Burnsville attorneys can help you recover $80,000.
Will I have to go to court?
Each case is different, but most personal injury cases settle out of court through negotiations. If you do have to go to court, our Burnsville personal injury attorneys will make sure you are thoroughly prepared and know what to expect.
How long will my case take?
That depends on the factors involved with the case and whether the opposition is willing to settle through fair negotiations or the case has to go to trial. In generally, you should not settle a case too soon. Injuries sometimes worsen over time and you want a settlement that covers all medical bills and pain and suffering that may result from additional diagnoses and treatment. Some cases are settled in a number of months, while cases that go to trial may take years to be resolved.
How much time do I have to start a lawsuit?
Injured parties generally must get their civil lawsuit filed within two years of the date of the accident, according to Minnesota statutes (Minnesota Statutes section 541.07).
If the accident caused someone’s death, and the family or other representative of the deceased person wants to bring a case against the at-fault driver, the case generally must be filed within three years from the date of the person’s death, according to Minnesota’s wrongful death law, (Minnesota Statutes section 573.02). The action must start within six years after the act causing the death.
What does it cost to hire a Burnsville personal injury attorney?
The good news is that our Burnsville personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, so it costs nothing to start your case, and we receive a payment only if we win a settlement for you. We are confident in the experience and skill of our team. That’s why we don’t charge a fee unless we win.
At Tyroler Law, we understand that things that seem commonplace to us can be confusing for our clients. Once you hire us to represent you, we will always be available to speak with you about your case and answer all your questions.
