Personal And Compassionate Wrongful Death Assistance

One of the most painful things in life is to lose someone we love. This pain can be compounded when the loss was preventable. 

Often, if we lose a spouse who is also our parenting partner, we lose a wage earner, a provider, a companion and indeed, a part of ourselves. 

If you lost a loved one due to a drunk, distracted or reckless driver, we can help.

If your loved one died because of someone else’s negligence — a property owner, equipment manufacturer, trucker — call and speak with an established personal injury attorney about your rights and the compensation due to you. 

Help With Many Types Of Accidents

The personal injury attorneys at Coodin & Overson, PLLP, understand the emotional exhaustion and grief that follows losing a loved one. We also know that this loss can cause a financial hardship for spouses and families. When someone is killed in a fatal accident, we are here to help. While no amount of money can bring back your loved one, skilled, compassionate guidance can work toward bringing your family the financial compensation you need to move forward after a tragedy. 

Accidents And Minnesota Dram Shop Laws

The dram shop law varies state by state, but here in Minnesota if a person is seriously injured or killed in an accident because of a driver who was overserved or served alcohol illegally, a lawsuit can be brought against that establishment. 

Economic compensation can cover many things, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral, cremation or burial costs
  • Loss of property  
  • Loss of that person’s income and future income

General damages may be pursued for pain and suffering, and mental anguish. Spouses and children may also seek loss of consortium/loss of companionship. In some cases, punitive damages are also sought.
