Personal Injury
Cases We Handle

Wrongful Death Cases

Our legal team handles wrongful death claims. Minnesota statutes define wrongful death as a death “caused by the wrongful act or omission of any person or corporation.” Wrongful death claims often result from fatal car or truck accidents.

Work-Related Injuries and Workers' Compensation Cases

Workers’ compensation claims differ from personal injury claims in that personal injury requires proving fault for the accident.
Workers’ compensation protects workers who become injured regardless of fault.

The Minnesota personal injury attorneys at Fields Injury Law handles workers’ compensation cases to help those hurt at work get their maximum compensation and benefits.


Under workers’ compensation laws, injured workers may qualify for:

  Wage-loss Benefits  

  Medical Benefits  

  Vocational Rehabilitation

First seek medical attention after a workplace injury.
Afterward, call our lawyers to determine what benefits you deserve. If the insurance company denies your claim, or if you notice any of these red flags, consult our attorneys:

  • Your employer or the insurance company schedules you for an independent medical examination.
  • Someone asks you to give a recorded statement.
  • You are assigned a nurse case manager.
  • You receive an Intent to Discontinue Benefits Notice.
  • You receive a settlement offer.
  • The insurance company assigns an attorney to your case.
  • Your workers’ comp checks seem too low.
  • Your checks are late.
  • You have questions about your workers’ comp case.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers remove the stress of dealing with insurance companies, paperwork, and the legal system to get injured workers the maximum compensation and benefits they deserve.



Our Lawyers Can Help You


Our Lawyers Can Help You

The insurance company doesn’t have your best interests in mind.

Insurers prefer dealing with victims without legal representation because they won’t need to pay the full value of their damages. Insurers often offer low-ball settlements hoping you won’t negotiate a better deal with them.

Once you accept an offer from an insurance company, you cannot go back to them for more money even if you discover that your injuries require further medical treatment or your injuries keep you out of work longer than anticipated.

The Minnesota personal injury lawyers at Fields Injury Law can:

  • Determine the extent and value of your damages
  • Establish negligence on the part of all other parties involved
  • Negotiate with insurance companies for full compensation
  • File your case before the statute of limitations if negotiations fail

Damages Available in
Personal Injury Cases

Damages are monetary awards someone can receive as compensation for the injuries and harm they suffered due to a negligent person’s actions. Our Minnesota personal injury attorneys at Fields Injury Law can review the evidence in your case to determine what compensation for damages you deserve.

Personal injury victims in Minnesota may recover three categories of damages:
Economic Damages

Economic damages result from accident-related injuries.

These include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Property damage
Non-Economic Damages

Sometimes called general damages, subjective non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify.

These include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Scars or disfigurement
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Loss of companionship
Punitive Damages

In rare circumstances, Minnesota law allows punitive damages as a form of punishment in cases where the at-fault person or party acted with “deliberate disregard for the rights or safety of others.” To prove deliberate disregard, you must establish that the negligent party knowingly or intentionally disregarded evidence that their actions would cause a high probability of injury to others.

Proving Negligence in
Personal Injury Cases

To recover personal injury damages in Minnesota, the injured person must show that the other party is liability for the accident. Our Minnesota personal injury lawyers at Fields Injury Law can investigate your accident to establish negligence.

In personal injury cases, injured victims must establish the four elements of negligence:
Duty of Care

The defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff. For example, drivers must follow traffic laws and drive safely to protect other drivers and pedestrians.

Breach of Duty

The defendant breached their duty of care to the plaintiff. For example, a driver who runs a red light breaches their duty of care to others.


The defendant’s breach of duty caused an accident that resulted in the plaintiff’s injury.


The plaintiff suffered damages due to their injuries. For example, the plaintiff’s accident-related injuries may have resulted in medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, or lost income due to missed work.

Minnesota’s Comparative
Negligence Rule Cases

Comparative negligence is a legal principle that courts use to measure the amount of damages a plaintiff can recover in an accident based on their percentage of fault.

Minnesota follows a modified comparative negligence rule which means that you will only recover compensation for your accident-related damages if you are no more than 50 percent at fault for the accident. However, your final damage award will decrease by your percentage of fault. If you are more than 50 percent to blame for the accident, you cannot collect compensation.

Insurance companies may try to get you to admit fault, or even partial fault, to reduce the compensation they pay you. Never admit fault even if you think you are partially to blame. Our Minnesota personal injury attorneys can advise you on the best way to respond to insurers.


Statute of
Limitations in Minnesota

A statute of limitations establishes the maximum deadline for an injured person to file a legal claim. If you do not file your lawsuit within this deadline, you will not recover compensation for your damages.

Minnesota law has established the following statutes of limitations for specific claims:
Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

Minnesota has a six-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit. This means victims of car, truck, and other accidents caused by the negligence of another party have six years after the accident to file a legal claim.

Some exceptions may shorten or lengthen this deadline. For example, the “discovery of harm” rule allows the statute of limitations to begin when you discover the damage. In some circumstances, this may come after the date of the actual incident.

Minor children injured in an accident have one year after their 18th birthday to file a personal injury claim, regardless of how young they were when they were injured.

Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

Minnesota wrongful death claims involving negligence have a shorter statute of limitations—just three years from the date of the death. Numerous exceptions apply to this rule. If you believe your loved one died from a wrongful death, talk with an attorney right away to file your claim within Minnesota’s statute of limitations.
