Drunk Driving Attorneys for Car and Pedestrian Accidents
In 2020, 394 people died and over 20,500 were injured in motor vehicle crashes on Minnesota roads. This means on average there was one death and 56 injuries every day in 2020 due to motor vehicle crashes. While our cars have gotten safer and seat belt use has greatly increased, lives are still lost and people are injured on a daily basis.
It's important to understand that motor vehicle crashes are serious events that may have lasting financial, physical, and emotional consequences for those involved. Even seemingly minor crashes can have lasting impacts. No matter how severe a crash or injury, if you or a loved one have been involved in a crash it's critical to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can help you with insurance claims, your physical and emotional recovery, and fight for you to obtain fair compensation for your medical care, vehicle damage, lost wages, and more. Get an experienced attorney as soon as possible after a crash so that critical evidence can be preserved and a full investigation can be conducted into the circumstances of the crash.
The experienced personal injury lawyers at Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz will stand by your side and ease the burden of dealing with insurance companies so you can focus on recovering from your injuries and moving on with your life. We do not get paid unless you collect, and consultations are always free.
In 2020, 45 pedestrians were killed and 652 injured on Minnesota roads. Pedestrians are at an increased risk of injury or death since they have no protection from cars or other moving vehicles in a collision. Children are even more susceptible to being hit by motor vehicles because of their small stature, which makes them difficult to see.
Common causes of crashes involving pedestrians include distracted driving, poor visibility, drunk driving, failure to yield the right of way to pedestrians lawfully crossing roadways, and poor roadway design.
Support is available for injury victims in these types of cases. Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz have successfully represented and fought for people injured or killed in pedestrian crashes. If you or a loved one has been injured as a pedestrian, it's critical to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately to fully investigate your claim and preserve critical evidence.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Alcohol is a leading cause of crashes and deaths from automobile crashes. In 2020, 394 people died in Minnesota as a result of drunk driving, and over 1139 more were injured. Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz not only support efforts to stop drunk driving but aggressively represent those injured by drunk drivers and their loved ones.
Drinking and driving is not only a crime but it's gross negligence and victims of drunk drivers have the right to be compensated for their injuries and losses. Our team at Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz will ensure that victims of drunk drivers receive justice by fully pursuing all recovery options from the drunk driver, as well as businesses who may have over-served the intoxicated person.
It's critical to seek appropriate medical treatment immediately after a crash involving a drunk driver but you must also ensure you hire an experienced personal injury attorney in order to preserve critical evidence and help you track your medical expenses. A victim's rights are protected by Minnesota law and victims are entitled to recover for their medical expenses, wage loss, emotional distress, as well as pain and suffering. Drunk driving also creates a claim for punitive damages for the victim or their family. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Maschka, Riedy, Ries, & Frentz will ensure all of your claims are paid in a timely fashion and that you receive all applicable benefits.
