Why Do Injury Victims Need an Attorney?

It is important to understand the civil process after a drunk driving crash is very different from the criminal one. In the question and answers feature, Steve Terry explains what a civil attorney does, such as making sure insurance companies act ethically and fairly. Civil attorneys are seeking proper compensation for the victim.

Terry discusses how the best personal injury lawyers have extensive knowledge of the legal issues that may arise, including but not limited to:

  • Health insurance subrogation
  • Schmidt notices
  • No fault stacking
  • Joint and several liability

Can Bars Be Held Responsible for Drunk Driving?

In Minnesota, it may be possible to hold a bar liable for a drunk driving crash victim’s injuries. However, building a case can be difficult, as attorneys must quickly interview witnesses, obtain video footage and determine the driver’s blood alcohol level. If you take too long to hire an attorney, it may not be possible to build an effective case against the bar that served the drunk driver.

How Do You Pay for an Attorney?

Unfortunately, many people do not understand how personal injury lawyers get paid. TSR, like many personal injury firms, operates on contingency. That means no upfront costs – our lawyers do not get paid unless you do. The initial consultation is also free of charge.

What if the Drunk Driver Has No Insurance?

Minnesota requires all drivers to have uninsured motorist coverage for these situations. However, there may still be insurance on the car that your attorney can seek compensation from. For example, the owner of the car may have insurance, or someone else in the household may have coverage that applies.
