Personal Injury

At McCarten Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to protecting our clients’ rights. 

When someone is injured as a result of the negligence of others, their life is abruptly interrupted and significantly changed.  The financial pressure of an injury can accumulate quickly and make physical recovery very difficult.  Loss of wages, medical expenses, loss of future income, along with pain and suffering are just some of the costly pressures that accompany an injury.

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation.  Our attorneys can assist you in receiving a personal injury settlement or award that can be a great source of financial and emotional relief following the difficulties associated with an injury.

Studies show that personal injury settlements for clients with legal representation are, on average, 3 times larger than settlements for those who are not represented.  Insurance companies want to keep their money and will use unfair tactics to settle your claim for much less than its worth before you hire an attorney.

The attorneys at McCarten Law Firm offer a free initial consultation to prospective clients.  We will then investigate all of the facts and begin the process of negotiating a fair settlement for our clients.  Insurance companies know that our attorneys are not afraid to try a case when necessary, and as a result, they will often offer more money in settlement to avoid trial.

McCarten Law Firm attorneys represent clients in auto accident, serious slip and fall, wrongful death, liquor liability, and dog bite claims.  Our personal injury attorneys are ready and willing to listen and help answer any questions or concerns that you have regarding your injury.

Motor Vehicle Accidents:
A person injured in an automobile crash may have a no-fault claim against their own insurance company, in addition to a liability claim against the other driver’s insurance company.  McCarten Law Firm attorneys work with clients to ensure they are compensated by their own insurance company for wage loss, replacement services, medical bills, prescriptions, and mileage.  Our attorneys also work with the other driver’s insurance company to ensure a fair settlement for losses like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, future medical bills, and future wage loss.  Read more about Motor Vehicle Accidents…

Wrongful Death:
When a person’s death is the result of a wrongful act of another, a representative of the deceased may pursue a wrongful death claim.  A wrongful death claim may include compensation for loss of financial support, loss of childcare, loss of medical benefits, and loss of companionship.  Read more about Wrongful Death…

Liquor Liability (Dram Shop):
If a person is injured by an intoxicated individual, they may have a claim against the bar or restaurant that served the intoxicated person.  To succeed on this claim, it must be shown that the intoxicated person was clearly intoxicated when the establishment served them or that the intoxicated person was a minor.  Read more about Liquor Liability…

Dog Bites/Attacks:
A person who is injured by a dog bite or attack has protection under Minnesota law.  Minnesota has a strict liability law, which means that the dog’s owner is liable for the injuries caused by the dog regardless of whether the owner knew that the dog might attack.  A person injured by an attacking dog need only show that they were bitten or attacked by the dog while lawfully on the premises and that they were not provoking the dog.  Read more about Dog Bites and Attacks…

Slip and Fall:
A property owner has a legal duty to keep their premises in a safe condition.  If a person is injured because of an unsafe condition on another’s property, they may have a claim for damages.  If a property owner knew or should have known about an unsafe condition on their property and failed to fix it, and an injury results, the property owner may be liable for the injury damages.  Read more about Slip and Fall Accidents…
