Transitioning From Fear To Faith In Injury Cases
There is no way around it: Suffering a serious injury is frightening. If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence and struggling to get an insurance company to compensate you fairly for medical costs, lost wages and other expenses, your fear and uncertainty will only be heightened.
Injured parties should not have to suffer financially. At Vukelich Law Firm, PLLC, in Duluth, we help our clients transition from fear of the future to faith that they will be fairly compensated. Attorney John E. Vukelich has been on the other side of these cases, working as an insurance defense lawyer for years early in his career before devoting his efforts to protecting the rights of the injured. All told, John has more than 40 years of experience in personal injury law.
In Minnesota, a person who is injured in an accident caused by someone else or as the result of a willful action may recover out-of-pocket expenses that result from their injuries. These include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Replacement services for household work the injured party is unable to perform
In some cases, it may be possible to recover compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering or loss of companionship. It may also be possible to recover punitive damages if the injured party can show the at-fault party acted with a “deliberate disregard for the rights and safety of others.”
A History Of Success
Our law firm represents clients on the Iron Range and throughout Minnesota in the full spectrum of personal injury cases, from car and truck accidents to slip-and-fall accidents and other premises liability cases. We have successfully represented clients in extremely complex lawsuits, including cases involving traumatic brain injury (TBI), a common injury sustained in car accidents, yet one whose effects on a victim are extremely difficult to explain in pursuit of fair compensation.
Our lawyers work closely with highly regarded medical professionals, accident reconstruction specialists and other experts, which allow them to develop strong cases that can be presented with confidence in court if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation. In truth, the majority of personal injury cases are resolved without litigating. John’s reputation as a skilled litigator who is unwilling to compromise for less than his clients deserve allows us to negotiate with insurance company lawyers from a position of strength.
