Head-On Accident

If you were seriously injured in a head-on car accident, you understand that life can become very complex, very quickly. As you focus on recovery, you may scramble to figure out how to pay your medical bills, especially if you cannot work and earn an income. And perhaps you have already been contacted by an insurance company and feel pressured to agree to a settlement that just doesn’t seem fair. You may also realize you need an experienced personal injury lawyer but are confused as to whom to choose. And these are only some of the complicated issues that may burden you and your family.

Helping You Recover Compensation After A Head-On Collision: Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Due to the forceful impact of head-on collisions, injuries tend to be severe and can often lead to death. In either of these situations, the potential for financial compensation is great. Unfortunately, this means insurers may fight even more aggressively to minimize their payout to you. But our lawyers stand prepared for any challenge. We are known for our willingness to go to trial, and our ability to win. Because of this reputation, insurance companies may be more likely to offer a fair settlement rather than risk a significant defeat in the courtroom.

While there are no guarantees in a personal injury case, our past success in obtaining favorable settlements and verdicts is a testament to our commitment, skill and tenacity in all car accident cases.

Rear-End Accident

Rear-end collisions are some of the most common types of car accidents. Contrary to what some people may think, rear-end crashes have the potential to cause very serious injuries to accident victims, especially if high speeds are involved.

If you were rear-ended in an accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately, even if your injuries seem minor at the time. Your next step should be to contact an experienced personal injury law firm to help you assess your options for claiming compensation.

Trusted By Car Accident Victims For More Than 61 years

At Paige J. Donnelly, Ltd., our personal injury lawyers have helped hundreds of accident victims fight for fair and just settlement awards after being injured in automobile collisions. We are with our clients at each stage of the legal process, offering strategic guidance, answering questions and providing compassionate support. With a significant track record of success, our law firm has been a trusted legal resource for Minnesota residents for more than 61 years.

The Issue Of Property Damage

Some rear-end accidents do not produce a significant amount of damage to automobiles. This can lead the insurance company to think your injuries are not serious. But our attorneys know better. Whether you suffered head trauma, soft tissue damage or broken bones in your crash, we can help. Our lawyers consult with your doctors to qualify your injuries and when appropriate we work with accident scene reconstructionists to prove the impact caused you harm. We will not back down when presented with excuses or low-ball settlements from the insurers. Our job is to help you maximize your compensation award through any legal means necessary.

Vehicle Rollover Accident

Rollover accidents can be some of the most devastating automobile collisions, causing serious and even fatal injuries. These crashes can be the result of one vehicle hitting another at high speeds, or a car swerving sharply in order to avoid being struck by a distracted driver. In addition, some rollover cases may involve products liability laws if a parts defect caused the car to roll or failed to provide adequate protection as required by law. Regardless of the cause, if another party was responsible for the rollover accident that caused your injuries, you have the right to seek financial compensation.

Your Legal Advocates And Support System

At Paige J. Donnelly, Ltd., we are known for taking on – and winning – the complex accident cases that other firms are not equipped to handle. With more than 61 years of experience on our side, our Minnesota law firm is known throughout the state for aggressive legal advocacy, standing up to the insurance companies, and ultimately securing favorable settlements and verdicts for our injured clients.

After a rollover accident, you may face a long road to recovery. The last thing you should have to worry about at this time is fighting with the insurance companies to obtain fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, permanent disabilities, and pain and suffering. Our law firm will take on that burden for you.

We have an entire legal team dedicated to the success of your claim, including internal investigators, experienced lawyers, as well as friendly and knowledgeable support staff. We also call upon accident scene reconstructionists, medical specialists and life-care economists to help improve your auto accident claim.

But we also take our services a step above and beyond. We know that this is an extremely difficult time for you and your family. Our team is here to support you fully in every way that we can. By providing compassionate service, we aim to help through this time and keep your sights set on a brighter future.

Stop Sign Collision

Intersections are among the most common areas for vehicle accidents to occur. Why? Because in many cases, a distracted driver does not see a stop sign. Or a risky driver will speed through a red light. The result is often a serious side-impact, head-on or rollover collision.

If you were injured when a driver ran a red light or a stop sign, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. But obtaining a fair and favorable settlement does not happen without the help of a skilled personal injury law firm.

Road Construction Zone Accident

Construction zones don’t just pose a risk to the roadside workers, they are also hazard hotbeds for motorists. In fact, some estimates show that more drivers and car passengers are injured in construction zones than the workers. Even following reduced speed guidelines, drivers may become confused by lane changes, not pay attention to the slowing traffic in front of them or drive while impaired. Regardless of the specific cause, construction zone vehicle accidents can leave victims with serious injuries, the inability to work and a mountain of medical bills.

After being injured in a construction zone accident, it is time to find an experienced personal injury law firm to represent you. With the right legal advocacy, you may be able to collect compensation for your injuries. When you work with Paige J. Donnelly, Ltd., you will be backed by 61 years of legal experience. Personal injury law is all that we do, and a significant portion of our practice is dedicated to car accident claims.

Addressing The Legal Issues Specific To Your Individual Case

Construction zone vehicle collisions present unique and nuanced challenges. One may need to consider the at-fault driver, the construction company, subcontractors and roadside workers. There may be multiple levels of liability and multiple insurance policies to navigate. Based on our attorneys’ experience, we are equipped to address any complexities that may accompany your case. We know where to look for liability, how to collect evidence and how to effectively negotiate with insurers. In the event the insurance companies will not commit to a fair settlement, our Minnesota lawyers are always more than ready to advance to trial – an undertaking that surprisingly, not all personal injury attorneys are ready to do.

Texting While Driving

Texting while driving is illegal in the state of Minnesota. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop many drivers from doing it. The truth is, distracted motorists account for a significant portion of automobile accidents in our state, and some studies have shown that a texting driver can cause more damage in a crash than a drunk driver.

If you have been injured in a car accident due to another driver texting on the road, there is likely a great sense of injustice, because this was an accident that could have been prevented. While nothing can change what has happened in the past, you can help yourself going forward by contacting an experienced personal injury attorney. When you work with the right law firm, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Our lawyers are known for their aggressive legal advocacy and have been honored numerous times for their dedication, skill and results in personal injury cases.
