Distracted Driving Accidents Minnesota

No Unanswered Text Is Worth Someone’s Life

If you have ever looked around while stopped at a traffic light, you’ve seen it. Drivers fiddling with their onboard technology, sending text messages, tilting their heads to balance a phone. Driving safely seems to be the last thing many drivers are focused on. Distracted or inattentive driving is more than annoying, it is dangerous. Distracted drivers cause many serious injuries and deaths every year in Minnesota.

Minnesota Lawyers For Distracted Driving Accidents

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of a distracted driver you need a lawyer looking out for you. In Minnesota, that means turning to the proven personal injury lawyers at Nicolet Law Firm. Unlike the driver responsible for your injuries, we are not inattentive while pursuing personal injury claims. You can count on us to focus on making sure you have the support you need as we pursue the full compensation you deserve for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.

Minnesota’s Hands-Free Law

It is not just a bad idea to use distracting devices behind the wheel; it’s illegal. The Hands-Free law that went into effect in 2019 bars drivers from:

  • Holding their phone in their hand
  • Video calling
  • Video live-streaming
  • Gaming
  • “Snapchatting”
  • Using non-navigation apps
  • Reading texts

There are exceptions for holding your phone to obtain emergency assistance. The law allows drivers to call, text, listen to music, get directions via voice commands or single-touch activation without holding their phone.

Focused On Maximizing Your Compensation

Founding attorney Russel Nicolet heads up a team with years of experience handling distracted driving claims in Minnesota. From our offices in Woodbury, Minneapolis, Duluth and Hibbing, we thoroughly investigate accidents and then work diligently to hold negligent drivers accountable for the damages they cause. We have what it takes to take on the insurance companies and come out victorious for our clients. You didn’t choose to get injured the first time; we’ll make sure you are not injured a second time by insurance company greed.

We will settle for nothing less than a result that provides you with the financial resources you need to cover your past, current and future damages. This includes ongoing medical treatment, psychological counseling for your emotional distress, lost earnings, and even necessary modifications to your home such as wheelchair ramps or elevators.

Get Started Today

It is important to act quickly in order to preserve your ability to make a claim. Call 1-855-NICOLET or contact us online to schedule your free consultation. It will cost you nothing to find out how we can help you; we handle all distracted driving claims on a contingency fee basis. We don’t collect a fee unless we collect compensation for you.
