St. Paul Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers

We Fight Hard to Protect Your Right to Seek an Award

When another driver hits you and causes injuries, you may decide to pursue a personal injury claim. Part of having a successful claim involves proving that the other driver was behaving negligently or recklessly. You need to show that the other driver’s actions behind the wheel were preventable, meaning you did not have to suffer the injuries you have.

When another driver is not paying attention behind the wheel, this can be a sign of negligence. If so, you can trust our St. Paul distracted driving accident lawyers at Tyroler Leonard Injury Law to seek evidence that shows the facts in the case. We’ll look for evidence that the other driver was engaging in unsafe actions, causing the accident and placing the other driver at fault. Once we determine fault, we then can begin the process of seeking an award for you.

Our Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers in St. Paul Will Take Over All Correspondence with the Insurer for You

As you are trying to recover from your injuries, the last thing you need is to have an insurance company badgering you with questions about the accident and about your health outlook. These questions don’t always occur because the insurance company actually cares about how you are doing, either. The insurer records these conversations, hoping that you will change your story or downplay the severity of your injuries. The insurer then uses your slightly different answers to try to reduce the amount it has to pay you in a settlement.

The unfortunate thing is that you may not even realize that you changed your story. Perhaps you were extremely tired or under the influence of pain-killing drugs one of the times the insurer was questioning you and don’t even remember the conversation.

One of the most important services our distracted driving accident lawyers in St. Paul do for you is taking over all correspondence with the insurance company, so you never have to speak with them unless we are present. This ensures that the insurer treats you fairly when asking questions.

Our St. Paul Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers Take Several Steps on Your Behalf

Beyond speaking with the insurer for you, we take several other steps on your behalf, including:

  • Taking over the settlement negotiations
  • Investigating the facts of the accident
  • Estimating your future health care costs
  • Estimating your lost wages when you are unable to work
  • Helping you decide whether a settlement offer is a fair one
  • Figuring out your health outlook by speaking with your doctors
  • Determining whether you may have a disability
  • Determining any emotional trauma related to the accident
  • Listening to your concerns and goals for the outcome of the case
  • Supporting you emotionally while you try to recover.

Ultimately, our St. Paul distracted driving accident lawyers will work to figure out how much money we believe your accident case should be worth, based on the facts of the case, and we then will seek every dollar you deserve to have. We promise to fight as hard as we can for you. Read some of our 100-plus five-star reviews from past clients to learn more about how we follow through on what we promise to do for you.

Our St. Paul Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers Have Experience with Investigating These Types of Crashes

When you are the victim in an accident where you believe the other driver was distracted, you should mention it to the police who are investigating the crash. Our St. Paul distracted driving accident lawyers can rely on the information in the police report when we are trying to investigate what happened in the crash. Even if police don’t give the driver a ticket for violating Minnesota’s distracted driving laws, we can use your suspicion about distracted driving to investigate the case further.

Perhaps the other driver wasn’t actively using a smartphone at the time of the crash. However, our investigation may show the driver was sending text messages 30 seconds before the crash. This texting and driving can be a contributing factor to the crash and may show negligence on the part of the driver who hit you.

Our St. Paul distracted driving accident law firm does not have to prove that the other driver violated the state’s laws regarding distracted driving. We are not trying to prove a criminal case against the other driver like the police might be trying to do. Instead, we only need to show that the other driver’s actions were negligent and that they may have contributed to the crash in which you suffered your injuries.

Common Questions Clients Ask Our St. Paul Distracted Driving Accident Lawyers

Texting and Driving FAQs

After suffering injuries in a car crash where the other driver was at fault, clients often are not quite sure how to proceed. That’s why they hire our distracted driving accident lawyers in St. Paul, as we can provide advice and guidance on the proper steps to take. We also make ourselves available to answer your questions whenever you have any concerns or when you are unsure what is happening. Here are some of the most common questions clients have for us, as well as our answers.

What is considered distracted driving in Minnesota?

Minnesota has a Hands Free law, where drivers cannot actively use the smartphone to read texts, send texts, send email, or access the internet while driving. Drivers cannot take these actions while driving or while stopped at a stoplight or stop sign.

How much does it cost to hire your St. Paul distracted driving attorneys?

At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, our team works on a contingency fee basis. This means that we do not charge you any money at the time you hire us. Instead, our fee comes from a percentage of the final award amount. If we do not win an award for you, you owe us nothing.

Why do we need to prove that the other driver was distracted just before or at the time of the accident?

As St. Paul personal injury lawyers, we know that we cannot win an award for our clients unless we show that the party responsible for the accident was behaving negligently. We must show that the other party could have avoided causing the accident and your injuries. If the other driver was distracted, this shows negligence.

At Tyroler Leonard Injury Law, we never want our clients to be confused about what is happening in their case. We want to work with our clients as a team to determine the best strategies to use in the case. We cannot deliver the highest level of service for you if you are unsure what is happening. That’s why we always take the time to speak with you and to keep you informed.
