Minneapolis Car Accident Lawsuit

Most car accidents occur when drivers fail to take the proper precautions. They drive while distracted, exceed the speed limit or turn without signaling. Sadly, all it takes is one negligent driver and a person's life can be changed forever.

At Chrastil and Steinberg, P.L.L.P., in Minneapolis, we represent people throughout the Twin Cities area who have been injured in car accidents. Our clients include drivers and passengers, and the cases we handle involve a range of injuries from whiplash and bruising to spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. We also represent the surviving family members of people killed in car accidents on Minnesota and Wisconsin roads.

When Your Insurer Won't Pay Your Bills After a Car Accident

If you are struggling to make ends meet after an accident, you may expect that your insurance company will compensate you for the loss you have suffered — reimbursing you for medical bills and wage loss from missed work.

Under Minnesota law, this should be the case. In Minnesota, each driver's liability insurance policy must cover $20,000 in medical and $20,000 in economic loss benefits at a very minimum. Unfortunately, insurance companies often look for any reason to deny a claim, and it takes a lawyer's forceful action and the threat of a lawsuit to convince them that you are serious.

Many people do not realize that they need a lawyer's help until they have taken matters into their own hands and failed. They work with their insurance companies in good faith until they discover that their accident claim is being undervalued or denied. It is this denial that drives them to contact our Minneapolis car accident attorneys.

The best way to handle a car accident insurance claim is to begin by contacting a lawyer before you try to handle matters yourself. Insurance companies often take advantage of the fact that drivers are hurt, confused and overwhelmed after car accidents. They use injured drivers' words against them as a way to deny insurance claims. Talking with a Minneapolis/St. Paul car crash injury attorney can help make sure that your interests are protected so that you get the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
