Catastrophic Injury Attorneys in Bloomington, MN
Experienced Legal Support for Life-Changing Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are severe, resulting in long-term, if not permanent, disability or disfigurement. They have profound implications for victims and their families, significantly impacting their ability to lead a normal life and necessitating extensive medical treatment and ongoing care.
The high medical bill costs, out-of-pocket expenses, and potential for lost wages make these cases far more complex than those involving less serious injuries. Those injured may require in-home personal care to accomplish everyday tasks, home or vehicle renovations to accommodate physical disabilities, and lifelong medical equipment, prescriptions, or repeat surgeries.
Quality of life, employability, loss of independence, and the emotional effects of permanent disability also contribute to the impact and the potential damages of these cases.
Some personal injury firms will take on any injury, regardless of the severity; that is not our goal at JD Haas & Associate PLLC. Our mission is to provide compassionate legal support for people who have endured wrongful deaths and life-changing injuries, such as those deemed catastrophic.
Making a difference for those going through life’s most challenging moments drives us, which is why our focus is reserved for the most severe and complex cases. Because of this concentration, we have become highly competent in what we do. You can trust our legal team for relationship-based support and comprehensive personal injury services in Minneapolis, St. Paul, statewide, and other service areas.

Timeline for Filing a Minnesota Catastrophic Injury Lawsuit
In Minnesota, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the injury. However, certain conditions may extend or shorten this period. It's critical to consult with an attorney promptly after the accident to ensure your rights are protected.
