Don’t Take A Financial Hit After A Car Accident
Insurance companies market themselves as completely focused on customers’ needs, but the truth is individuals who feel their medical costs and other losses should be covered following a motor vehicle accident are often shocked to discover how uncooperative and unconcerned an insurance company can be.
In these situations, it is critical to enlist the help of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who will stand up to the strong-arm tactics of an insurance provider and work to recover the compensation you deserve. In Duluth and across Minnesota, that lawyer is John E. Vukelich.
We don’t recover unless you do. Our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means we only get paid if we help you obtain a recovery through a negotiated settlement or a court judgment. Call 218-461-9950.

Understanding Minnesota’s Comparative Fault Law
In order to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit, it is necessary to show that another party was at fault and the accident caused your injuries. Under Minnesota’s comparative fault rule, an injured party who was partly at fault for an accident may still collect damages, but only if he or she is found to be 50 percent or less at fault. If an injured party is found to be partly at fault by a jury, the amount awarded in damages will be reduced by the percentage of fault placed on that person by the jury up to and including 50 percent.
Our legal team has experience with complex injury cases, including accidents that result in traumatic brain injuries, paralysis or the death of a loved one. These cases can take a year or more to resolve and require extensive resources to develop. We have done this for four decades. We have developed working relationships with highly regarded medical professionals and other experts who can testify on your behalf. We know how to build strong cases and present them in court whenever necessary.
