In Minnesota, for example, after 3 years of decreasing numbers of car accident fatalities, the number of fatalities in car accidents is increasing. Given our fast-paced lives, the distractions available to drivers, and the number of miles driven by a typical person every year, perhaps that increase is not surprising.
For more than 20 years I have been involved in wrongful death trials in many different states. These cases are emotionally difficult not only for the family, but also for their lawyer. Wrongful death cases are important to show the value of the victim's life and to show to the negligent person the importance of safety.
If your family, or someone you know, has had a family member die in an accident because of the actions of someone else, I would like to talk to that family about my qualifications to be their lawyer. There is no obligation or cost for the consultation.
