When a person is physically or emotionally injured, it is considered to be a “Personal Injury”. Personal injury laws allow the injured person to receive monetary compensation for damages caused by another’s carelessness, negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions.
If you are the victim of a personal injury, there are several things you can do to help yourself. First of all, make sure that you seek proper medical care. If you believe your injury was caused by someone else’s act, you should contact an attorney. Call as soon as possible and avoid discussing the matter with strangers or insurance representatives who are not from your own insurance company. Cooperate with the police, your own treating doctors, and your own insurance company, and remember that Minnesota laws may limit the amount of time you have to make a claim regarding your injury.
