Have You Been Injured? Choose The Champions at Patterson Dahlberg

Most individuals have experienced an accident of some kind in their lifetime. At the very least, most people have a friend or family member who has suffered from a car wreck, a fall, or a dog bite injury. But many do not know of the abundance of scenarios that occur under the umbrella of “personal injury law.”

Here at Patterson Dahlberg Injury Lawyers, personal injury is what we do. When we began our team, we decided that we wanted to ensure that our clients, who depend on getting their just settlement from insurance companies, get the compensatory judgments they deserve. It is not a secret that insurance companies often act quickly to deny valid claims or make unreasonably low offers in hopes that the victim will not engage an attorney.

We liked the idea that our clients did not have to pay anything for initial consultations, but they would not be faced with a fee unless we collect the money you deserve.

Because of the type of work that accompanies wrecks, falls, and other injuries, we knew it would be necessary to be available at all times to meet with our clients at our offices, at the victim’s home, and even at the hospital.

Additionally, our team has the experience to handle complex personal injury lawsuits of many types.

Our offices are in Rochester, Minnesota’s Patterson Dahlberg Injury Lawyers serves all of Southeast Minnesota.

Issues Involved in Personal Injury Cases

The American Bar Association explains that a few of the finer points in personal injury law:

Strict Liability

This somewhat new tort law area holds designers and manufacturers strictly liable for injuries from defective products. Some examples include:

  • Maintaining safety measures in high-risk environments, such as manufacturing, construction, and other potentially dangerous work.
  • Negligence in design
  • Neglected recalls

In most cases, cases like these mean that clients will need a skilled attorney knowledgeable in these types of cases.

Fault Liability

A person can be at fault in tort even if their conduct is not morally blameworthy. Fault liability does not terminate by excuses that establish the absence of guilt (The degree of blameworthiness in committing a crime or offense).

Intentional Wrongs

This type of wrongdoing can also be the basis of personal injury claims but are rare. Another person is striking an example of this type of personal injury, even if it occurs as a practical joke, may allow the person hit to win a suit of battery. Another example is if a store detective wrongly detains an individual for shoplifting, the person detained may win a case for false imprisonment.

Again, the interpretation of personal injury laws and torts should be the purview of experienced and competent attorneys.

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
