Virginia, MN, Car Accident Lawyers
Serving Clients throughout St. Louis County & Carlton County
Auto accidents on the roads and highways in northeastern Minnesota are unfortunately quite common. Because of this, they are the most frequent cause of personal injury claims. These accidents can lead to injuries that can range from a minor case of whiplash to catastrophic damage to the brain or spine and, in the worst cases, to permanent disability or a wrongful death. For those who survive, optimum recovery can take weeks, months, or years, depending on the extent of the injuries. Throughout all this, your life has been thrown into chaos, stress, and uncertainty.
At Trenti Law Firm, we understand the often devastating consequences of a traffic crash and the confusion that can follow. Many questions will arise. Who is at fault? Whose insurance will pay for the damages? Will your insurance cover ongoing medical expenses? What happens if you are considered the at-fault driver? Our experienced auto injury attorneys can provide the guidance you need. We are here to help you explore the best path to relief, whether you were the driver or a passenger injured in the collision. Our law firm has fiercely advocated for Minnesota accident victims since 1960, and we continue to fight for full and fair compensation to this very day.
