Dog Bite Injuries

In Minnesota, many of the injuries caused by dogs subject the dog owner to strict liability, meaning there are often no defenses. The “dog bite” statute applies beyond dog attacks, even to inadvertent injuries. For example, we successfully litigated a case where a Plymouth woman, delivering a package, was startled by dogs jumping against a patio door.  Our client was startled, and fell off a deck step and fractured her hip (though there was no contact between she and the dogs).  We brought her case to trial and prevailed, after the insurer refused the claim. We definitely can help with any legal issues resulting from dog bites. We have handled numerous simple to complex dog attack cases. Call us today at 763-682-1082.

Wrongful Death

First let us say how sorry we are for your loss. There are no words to fully express the despair for the loss of your loved one. However, you need representation in all death cases. In the case of a death, a single Trustee must be court appointed to represent the interest of all surviving family members. This is often accomplished in the first days following a death. Frequently the first family member to apply to the court is appointed. The Trustee will have authority to make important decisions on behalf of the entire family. Once a settlement agreement is reached, the Trustee must apply to the presiding court for approval of the settlement and the proposed distribution to the various family members.

Consequently, the selection of a Trustee is an important first step that you need to discuss with a trusted, experienced trial attorney. This should be done at your very earliest opportunity. Our attorney, Tom Kiernan, will meet with you as soon as you are ready to discuss your options. Our staff is trained to respond immediately to any wrongful death inquires. Once you select us to represent you, and the heirs, we will treat you in the kind and gentle manner required after such a loss. We will seek to bring you some peace and confidence in the process.
