Holding Reckless Drivers Accountable For Your Motor Vehicle Accident

While most of us experience safe trips in our vehicles nearly every day, it only takes a reckless or negligent driver a moment to change the course of our lives forever. A motor vehicle accident can leave a victim with catastrophic injuries for years to come, and it is important that they get the compensation they deserve to cover the costs and consequences of their injuries.

At Reichert Law Office, we understand how damaging an accident can be, and we have more than 25 years of experience helping clients in North Dakota and Northern Minnesota through their personal injury claims. We use our vast experience in litigation and negotiation to explore all available options for maximizing the compensation our clients receive in their claims.

Why You Need An Attorney

A major accident can leave you with expenses and losses like lost income, medical bills, property damage, loss of earning potential and more, but that does not guarantee that your settlement offer will reflect those factors. We understand each case we take is unique, and requires personalized representation plans to recover from accidents like:

After an accident, the liable party’s insurance may quickly offer you a settlement check for your injuries, but it is likely for an amount that is less than you deserve. We can help you identify what a fair offer should look like, and fight to secure that outcome through any necessary negotiation or litigation.

What should I do after a car accident?

It is important to call the police after an accident so that a police report can be made. Our accident lawyers can use this report to investigate an accident and determine damages. You may increase the odds of getting a fair settlement by getting a medical exam, taking pictures of the accident and noting witnesses.

Should I see a doctor even if I do not believe I was injured?

Many car accident victims suffer hidden injuries. These injuries do not appear immediately after a motor vehicle accident, often because they are masked by adrenaline or stress or because swelling has not started. An early medical exam can save your life from a hidden injury.

What should I do when the insurance company calls me?

Despite what insurance companies say, they do not have your best interests in mind. Adjusters will try to use every tactic to give motor vehicle accident victims the lowest compensation package possible. When an insurance company calls you, you can inform them that one of our attorneys will contact them. Our attorneys have extensive experience working with insurance adjusters so that our clients get the maximum compensation package.

What is North Dakota’s modified comparative fault law?

North Dakota’s modified comparative fault law states that a driver who is 50% or more at fault for an accident can not receive compensation. Furthermore, any percentage of fault can affect the overall outcome of damages. In other words, the less you have done to cause a car accident, the more likely you are to recover damages from it.
