Settlement in Slip and Fall Case: The Importance of a Thorough Investigation

One evening last summer, a young gentleman was spending time at a local, popular nightclub in downtown Minneapolis.  Unfortunately, he slipped and fell to the ground while walking toward the dance floor.  Immediately after falling down, this man noticed that he had slipped on a wet floor and this was the reason for this unlucky incident.  He also observed a small leak from the ceiling that was the reason there was water accumulation on the floor.

$200K Settlement: Tapping Into Your Underinsured Motorist (UIM) Coverage

Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident wherein she was seriously injured. The Magna Law Firm was able to settle her case for the policy limits, in this case $100,000.00, with the at-fault party’s automobile insurance carrier. Although this was a significant settlement amount, we still felt that this amount would not adequately compensate our client for the injuries that she sustained as a result of this car accident. Our firm understands that in every case that we handle it is extremely important that all avenues of insurance recovery be thoroughly explored in order to make sure that our clients are fully compensated.

$69K Low Speed/Low Impact Auto Collision Jury Verdict

The Magna Law Firm is proud to announce a positive verdict for our client in an automobile accident case.  Our client, a woman in her early 30s, sustained soft-tissue injuries to her neck and back as a result of an accident in which her car was rear-ended by another vehicle.  Insurance adjusters are always looking for reasons to deny a personal injury claim.  The insurance company in this case maintained that because there was very little property damage sustained by the vehicles that were involved in this accident (there was no visible property damage to our client’s car), the injuries our client sustained could not have been significant or even caused in this collision.  After being presented with all the evidence at trial and after hearing the arguments from the attorneys from both sides, the jury awarded our client over $69,000.00 in this case.  The verdict was a clear win for our client.  The jury concluded what science has already proven:  An injury can certainly occur when a low impact collision takes place!  Even when the damage done to the car is minor, injuries can be serious and long-lasting.
