I Was Hit by Another Driver—What Can I Do?
Although the number of motor vehicle fatalities has steadily declined in Minnesota over the past few years, serious auto accidents continue to cause severe and sometimes life-altering injuries. The impact of these injuries can have a devastating impact on your life. Where do you go for help? A personal injury attorney in Minnesota is a good place to start.
Drivers cause accidents in any number of ways. With the availability of new handheld technology, possibly you were hit by a teenager who was texting and driving and lost control of the car. Maybe the other person had a few too many cocktails at happy hour and didn’t see that stop sign as you drove through the intersection. Perhaps you were injured by the truck driver of an 18-wheeler who fell asleep while driving.
Regardless of the cause, you have rights in a personal injury case. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may not be capable physically or emotionally to do what must be done to win your case, such as:
- Gather the documentation and other evidence related to the case, including police reports and witness statements;
- Contact insurance companies and deal with adjusters;
- Represent yourself in a trial if the case can’t be settled out of court.
