Car Accidents

“Our family was treated with respect, dignity and honesty.  The entire staff became a part of our family.”

Gregg & Jamie Reuvers, Faribault, Minnesota  

In the blink of an eye, your life may change forever.

A careless act by another driver may result in profound injury — a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, amputation, paralysis — or even death.

These serious injuries may also result in significant medical bills and loss of your job.

Each year more than 30,000 Minnesotans are injured in car accidents. Most car accidents occur in good weather and under good driving conditions. This means that most car accidents occur because of human error. According to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MDPS), most car accidents can be prevented. This is why MDPS uses the term “crash” rather than “accident”.
