Legal Representation For Injuries To Children
Injuries to children are tragic. Childhood injuries can result in lifelong consequences. You may need to take legal action to give your child the resources he or she needs to recover and move forward after an injury.
For more than 20 years, we have been representing the victims of personal injury in courtrooms throughout Minnesota. We have helped clients achieve great results, including favorable jury verdicts and million-dollar settlements — holding negligent people and businesses accountable for their actions.
A Special Concern For Children With Injuries
From offices in Sartell and Brainerd, Gabrielson Law Offices, Ltd., aggressively represents families of children injured in accidents in communities throughout Northern and Central Minnesota.
As a father and coach, attorney Stephen Gabrielson is especially effective in working with cases involving children. You will find that our attorney and staff understand the extra burdens that a personal injury case may have when a child is involved, either as a victim or a witness to the injury. We have deposed children as young as six years old up through the difficult teenage years, and have achieved positive results through our understanding of children’s motivations and behavior.
Serious Representation For Children Facing Serious Injuries
Since serious childhood injuries often create a need for long-term, if not lifelong medical care, we discuss how a structured settlement or establishing a special needs trust with award or settlement money can help you and your child. While there are certain tax advantages associated with both, at the present time establishing either one may qualify your child for Medicaid benefits without forcing you to spend down their assets. The complexity of these issues makes them confusing to most people. We will explain what’s involved and help you evaluate the options available to you.

Our firm is one of the few in Minnesota to have litigated a trampoline accident case. In fact, attorney Gabrielson has spoken to the Minnesota Trial Lawyers Association, teaching other lawyers how to handle trampoline litigation. We know how truly dangerous these “toys” are — so dangerous that they were at one point removed from the consumer market altogether.
When Serious Accidents Happen To Small Children
In a group of children, accidents often happen to the smallest child. These injuries can be serious, including broken bones, ruptured spleens, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and even wrongful death.
