Personal Injury

North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana Personal Injury Attorneys

Car accidents are the most common cause of personal injuries. Personal injuries may also be caused by farm accidents, construction accidents, defective products, falls, animal attacks, oil field accidents, or any other situation where safety concerns are overlooked by a negligent party. If you have been injured as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of another individual, turn to Maring Williams Law Office.

Can & Should You File a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a type of civil lawsuit that is filed after someone causes physical, emotional, or psychological harm to another person. Occasionally, a negligent party will hurt someone else and face a civil lawsuit and criminal charges in two separate yet related cases. We commonly see this in drunk or drugged driving cases, for example.

In many cases, an injured party has every right to file a personal injury claim after an accident, but they wait too long to file or don’t file at all. Usually, this happens when the person is afraid to inconvenience the at-fault party. Or the injured person decides not to file a claim because they’re convinced that the at-fault party can’t afford to compensate them for their injuries.

When people use the above reasons not to file a claim, it’s is an awful shame. Instead of receiving the compensation they need and deserve, they suffer financially, emotionally, and physically. They have to foot the bill for all of their medical expenses, and they have to deal with losing income for weeks, months, or even years. Often, the injured person makes these unnecessary sacrifices at the expense of their family’s financial and emotional well-being.

Do not make this same mistake. Schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys by calling us at (701) 402-6644 today.

Who Pays the Compensation?

Who pays for a plaintiff’s damages or financial compensation for injuries or losses? Rarely, it’s an individual, but it does happen now and then. Usually, it’s an insurance company. In the vast majority of personal injury cases, it’s the at-fault party’s insurance company that pays the plaintiff’s damages for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, etc.

Common types of insurance that pay plaintiffs in a personal injury case:

  • Auto
  • Homeowner's
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Retail business
  • General liability
  • Medical office

We are only scratching the surface regarding insurance. Just be aware that in almost all personal injury cases, there’s an insurance policy in force that will compensate an injured party who files a lawsuit against a negligent person or business. For example, even if a person was robbed and assaulted one night in a parking lot and the attacker got away, the victim can still file a lawsuit against the property owner for not providing adequate security measures.

If you were recently injured in an accident and you’ve hesitated to contact an attorney, please know that there’s no harm in finding out if there is an insurance policy that will compensate you for your damages.
