If we are unable to reach a fair settlement with the insurance company or at fault party, we may file a lawsuit to pursue recovery in court.
What Expenses or Losses Can I Claim for Your Injuries?
It is impossible to estimate which losses you can claim or their value, as there are so many variables that affect the outcome of the case. Some of the damages we may account for when pursuing a recovery include:
Medical damages may include hospitalization, extended care, medication, surgeries, and doctor visits.
Lost Pay and Benefits
Your recovery may account for lost wages and loss of future earning capacity, including loss of benefits and pension.

You may also qualify to recover for the noneconomic damages you experience, including mental distress, physical pain, loss of consortium, loss of quality of life, and more.
Statue of Limitation for Personal Injury Cases in Minnesota
Minnesota imposes a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases including drunk driving accidents according to Minnesota Statutes section 541.07.
Therefore, you must file a claim before the two-year deadline to recover your medical bills and other financial losses from your drunk driving accident.
