We Fight For Justice For Families Of Wrongful Death Victims
Persons, organizations and governmental entities can be held financially accountable for fatal accidents. Liability involves foreseeability: should the negligent party have foreseen dangers associated with their actions or inactions? An experienced wrongful death attorney can be invaluable in helping a victim’s survivors evaluate their options.
It is not necessary to prove intentional misconduct. For example, the driver of a car who is busy texting a message to a friend certainly doesn’t intend to cross the median and kill another driver. However, that driver should have foreseen the dangers associated with trying to text and drive at the same time.

Seeking Justice Through Minnesota Courts
Nothing can ever truly replace the comfort and companionship your loved one gave you. But, a wrongful death claim holds wrongdoers accountable for their actions. Such a claim also helps your family move forward by giving you the resources you need for support.
When a family member dies in a fatal accident, it is important to consider all financial and legal issues, regardless of the circumstances involved, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- DUI accidents and dram shop liability cases
- Dangerous and defective products
- Fires, explosions and other accidents caused by property owner negligence
- Construction site and other workplace accidents
Not only can you recover for the monetary support your loved one would have contributed to your family, but the surviving members may also be entitled to the value of that person’s comfort, companionship, advice and assistance.
Minnesota Imposes A Deadline For Filing Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Minnesota law places a three year time restriction — a statute of limitations — on wrongful death claims. Therefore, if you are the survivor of a wrongful death victim, you should seek legal advice from a competent wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. If you wait too long to take legal action, you may be barred from bringing a claim.
