Personal Injury Lawyers In St. Cloud, MN
Heller & Thyen practices personal injury law, representing injured people with claims involving automobile accidents, dog bites, premises liability, wrongful death, alcohol-related accidents, farm accidents, and other negligence-based claims.
At Heller & Thyen, we handle personal injury cases differently than many of the larger “mills.” We keep in contact with our clients while they are treated for their injuries; we immediately file for arbitration if their insurance company denies payment of our client’s medical bills, rather than waiting for the case to be settled. This ensures that our clients do not have an adverse relationship with their treating doctor because of a large, unpaid bill. We are also very open about case values so our client’s expectations are not out of line with the value of their case.
If you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or fault, you may have a claim for your injuries. You have a right to be fairly compensated for the injuries you sustain as the result of someone else’s negligence. We have offices in St. Cloud, Willmar, St. Paul & Minneapolis MN for your convenience with your Personal injury Claim needs.
The claim for compensation is to attempt to put you back in the same position as you were before the accident. You can therefore recover:
– The cost of your medical care, both incurred, as well as the amount of money reasonably certain to cost you in the future.
– Replacement of lost income, both past and future.
– Money to compensate you for the human losses and harms, including the pain and suffering you have gone through in your attempt to recover.
Usually, the biggest expenses relating to any injury are the medical bills you will incur while you get the medical attention you need. If you were injured in an auto accident, your own auto insurance will cover most of these bills. If you were injured as a result of a fall or were bit by a dog, the insurance company for the landowner or dog owner may cover some of the bills. Quite often, however, a significant amount of bills may go unpaid. It’s our job to ensure they all get paid.
Usually, the calculation of medical expenses is easy. Just add up all of the medical bills you have that are related to the motor vehicle accident. Sometimes, however, it is not so easy. If you have had prior injuries or other accidents or injuries since your incident for which you are bringing a claim, it sometimes difficult to know just what treatment relates to your accident and which are not related. It is important to be in close contact with your doctor, who will ultimately be your best witness in supporting your claims.
Future medical costs are also difficult to calculate because of the inherent uncertainty of the need for medical treatment in the future. Again, it will be your doctor who’s opinion will be needed to calculate the amount of treatment in the future.
Just because you incurred a medical bill or your doctor says that it was necessary or related to the accident, does not mean that the insurance company or a jury will agree. We help you fight to have all of your accident-related bills get paid.
