We want to help you with your serious personal injury case.

Have you been injured because of someone else’s negligence?  RRH&A can help!  Because we are a small, full-service law firm, we can give you and your case the individual attention you deserve.  Large, mill-type law firms use aggressive marketing campaigns to get clients in the door, but once those firm are hired, there is little personal service and little interaction between the lawyer and the client.  We are different!  We get to know our clients. We work up your claim to its full value, including damages for emotional distress and any potential future medical costs.

Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

Our extensive knowledge of the law and neuroscience, as well as the legal implications associated with various brain related injuries and diseases, surpasses most personal injury law firms.  Importantly, our attorneys understand that traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are not solely caused by the obvious blow to the head. Not only do TBIs have an impact on the victim’s financial stability, but also effects on their quality of life.  If you or a loved one have suffered a serious traumatic head injury or legal troubles due to a brain related disease, we are ready to fight for you.

Products Liability

Products liability and injury due to exposure to defective and harmful products caused by their defective design or manufacturing, as well as a manufacturer’s failure to warn of their defect.  Defective industrial and workplace products and equipment, defective consumer products, defective drugs and pharmaceuticals, and defective medical devices.

Automobile, truck, and farm machinery accidents, industrial/construction equipment related accidents

 

Automobile and other injuries may be more serious than they seem at first.  If you’ve been injured in an automobile accident, or any other type of accident involving a motorized vehicle, call us for a free consultation. Insurance companies often offer accident victims a small settlement upfront to keep them from going to trial and potentially receiving a much larger award. Our attorneys will advocate on your behalf to ensure that any insurance settlement you consider fully compensates you for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage, and other compensation you may deserve.

Injured victims of crimes and intentional torts such as assault and battery

 

Most people recognize that assault and battery are criminal acts, and tend to use the two words interchangeably. In fact, there is also civil assault and battery that denote two separate types of intentional conduct. A battery is the non-consensual physical contact of another, with or without a weapon, that is harmful or offensive.  An assault is the apparent intent to commit a battery that is perceived with apprehension by the victim, whether or not a battery is in fact intended or committed. While most victims of an assault or battery see their assailant prosecuted in a criminal court of law, an equal consideration should be given by the victim as to their right to monetary compensation that may available in a civil court of law. If you have been the victim of a crime, we may be able to bring a civil suit on your behalf. 

Dram Shop & Liquor Liability

The law places considerable responsibilities on those who sell alcohol, also known as "dram shops." Historically, dram shop referred to an establishment that served alcohol "by the dram," a small draught of cordial or alcohol. This unit of liquid measure was used in the United States during the colonial period. Each state is empowered to enact its own dram shop laws to hold sellers of alcoholic beverages responsible for damages under liquor liability laws.  In Minnesota, such a law is titled the Civil Liability Act, also known as the Dram Shop Act. When someone is injured because a business, bar or restaurant breaches that responsibility, there may be a legal claim against that business for its negligent distribution of alcohol. If you, or someone you love, has been injured by an overly intoxicated driver or assailant, we may be able to help. 

If you or a loved one has been injured it's more important than ever that you hire the right personal injury lawyers.  Call us today.
