Minnesota Fatal Accident Attorneys
No amount of money can replace a loved one. However, people who lost a parent, child, spouse, grandparent or sibling because of another’s negligence may be able to recover damages and compensation that can free them from financial worry and help them heal emotionally.
Experienced Lawyers Seeking Full Compensation for Clients
At the St. Paul law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., our lawyers are sensitive to our clients’ situations. We know that the death of a loved one causes significant emotional turmoil and suffering. Those left behind have lost the love, companionship, guidance, and advice of someone dear. Minnesota law recognizes this and gives people the opportunity to seek a financial remedy. For nearly 30 years, our law firm has been helping clients whose loved ones died because of negligence, misconduct, or deliberate disregard.
Payment in a Wrongful Death Case
People whose loved one died as a result of another’s negligence can seek compensation for:
- The income or support provided by the deceased
- The comfort, assistance, advice, protection, and companionship provided by the deceased
- Punitive damages if the evidence shows deliberate disregard by the defendant
- Funeral costs
- Medical costs
Our attorneys have assisted clients who lost loved ones in motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury accidents. We strive to obtain full compensation for our client’s losses after a fatal accident.
Act Quickly After a Fatal Accident
Minnesota Law 573 requires that a claimant bring a wrongful death case within three years of the death. However, it is good to bring a claim as soon as possible so that witnesses remember and evidence is preserved. Our attorneys can advise about the time limits imposed by the wrongful death statute.
