Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
When you’ve been harmed in an accident, you can seek damages for what you’ve lost. A personal injury lawyer representing you is the best way to protect your best interests. We know the laws that apply to your case and will advocate for you when you’re dealing with other parties.
Often, an insurance company may be involved after the accident. For example, you need to alert the insurance company after a car accident. The company may offer you a settlement for your injuries. However, if you accept the settlement, you may find that it doesn’t adequately cover the costs of your damages.
Having Madia as your lawyer can also help you prevent getting less compensation than you deserve by communicating with the insurance company. When an insurance adjuster contacts you, they will try to get statements from you about the accident and your injuries. They will use this information to offer you a settlement. But when they ask for this information, you may not know the full extent of your injuries or what your case is worth.
The insurance company may undervalue your case and may not fully investigate the total damages you’ve suffered.
With Madia as your Minnesota personal injury lawyer, we will take the time to determine the full extent of your injuries and losses. Your damages typically include financial and emotional injuries, also known as economic and noneconomic damages.

Aspects of Personal Injury Compensation
Your economic damages are the expenses that you’ve lost and will continue to lose because of the accident. If you spent time in the hospital, need medical care to treat your injuries, and will continue to receive care like taking medication or going to physical therapy, these expenses can all pile on and become overwhelming. We will gather all the medical bills that you’ve incurred and the projected cost of what living with your injuries will be so we can seek adequate compensation for your physical injuries.
Another important aspect of your compensation is the days of lost pay from missing work. If your injuries are severe, you may not be able to work for weeks or months—which can cause a lot of financial stress if you have medical care you need to afford. We will fight for you to recover your lost wages so you can continue to keep up with your financial responsibilities.
If your injuries are severe enough, you may not be able to return to your previous job. We will also look into your lost earning capacity because of the injury.
Depending on the type of accident, you may also have damaged property. When you’re handling recovery and missing work, you may wonder how you’re going to pay for the repairs. This is another loss that we will seek to recover.
Your other damages are considered noneconomic because they have to do with how the accident has affected your life. While they may not be in the form of a bill, they are still significant losses that should never have happened in the first place. Madia understands the extent of noneconomic damages and will carefully review what you’re able to recover.
Living with injuries can mean you experience pain on a daily basis. This can make it difficult just to get through the day. We will fight to ensure that pain and suffering is included in your compensation.
In addition to the pain you’re feeling, it can also be frustrating to need to rest so you can heal. Your movement and what you can do each day may be inhibited because of your accident. This may mean you need help around the house or need to rely on others to take care of you. Missing out on the parts of life that you enjoyed is also possible. While you will need to rest during this time, this aspect of your injury is also something you can recover.
The trauma of the accident or the injuries you’ve sustained may cause you to experience mental anguish. If you’re emotionally suffering from the accident, we will take this into consideration when calculating the total losses of the accident and what full and fair compensation would be for you.
Madia will always advocate for your best interests and will fight for you to receive compensation that will allow you to recover financially. When you have this security, you can get the treatment you need so you can continue to heal physically and emotionally.

You’ve Been Injured: Now What?
After an accident, you’ll want to act quickly and meet with a lawyer as soon as possible. In Minnesota, personal injury claims need to be filed within the statute of limitations. This means that if you come forward after this limit, you may not be able to receive compensation. Your lawyer will go over the time you have for your case.
When you retain Madia as your lawyer, we will begin investigating the accident. As we consult police accident reports and medical records, we’ll find the evidence that shows how the other party’s negligent actions caused your injuries.
While the legal process can take time, you deserve to receive full and fair compensation. You may find the other party isn’t cooperating or is trying to say that you were partially at fault. We understand how this can be frustrating, but we have represented many clients in the past and have the experience and skill to analyze the evidence and build a strong case that shows you were the victim and the other party was at fault.
Personal injury cases we handle include, but are not limited to:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents

We understand how going to court can be a nerve-wracking experience. We will do everything we can to prepare you so you feel confident. We will go over the proceedings of coming forward with a civil action, how you should present yourself, and other aspects you can expect from the day.
