Do I need a lawyer?
If you’ve been injured in an accident and someone else is at fault, the short answer is this: “Yes.” Even clear-cut situations can quickly turn complicated when insurance companies get involved; it becomes remarkably difficult to determine who has your best interests at heart. As your personal injury lawyers, we have one priority: your wellbeing and building a case designed to benefit you — not the insurance company.
What will it cost to hire a personal injury attorney?
At Burke & Thomas, we handle all personal injury cases on a contingency-fee basis, which means you won’t pay a penny out of pocket. We’ll walk you through all the details of our fee structure in your free initial consultation.
How quickly should I contact an attorney?
The sooner you contact a personal injury attorney, the better. When we take on your case, we’ll immediately begin gathering as much evidence as we can about your accident — a process that is generally much more successful if little time has passed. For instance, motor vehicles have “black boxes” that detail the driver’s speed and maneuvers, which can be invaluable evidence. However, these are often destroyed if damaged cars are sold for salvage and crushed. Prompt communication will allow us to get the most value out of physical evidence, witness statements and accident reconstruction — allowing us to build the strongest case we can on your behalf.
Will you represent me if my accident didn’t take place in Minnesota?
We represent clients in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North Dakota. When we take on your case, we will come to you, wherever you may be.
Why should I choose Burke & Thomas to represent me?
