Personal Injury

The attorneys at Karkela, Hunt & Cheshire, PLLP, have a tradition of protecting the rights of injured parties to the fullest extent under the law, giving our clients vigorous, diligent and zealous representation within the bounds of the law.

Our personal injury practice includes the areas of automobile accidents, farm accidents, liquor liability and dram shop, negligence, premises liability, products liability, wrongful death and worker’s compensation.  The experience gathered over years of practice in these areas has given our attorneys the ability to give the best possible service to our injured clients from investigation to litigation, as well as the ability to pay personal attention to the needs and concerns of our clients.

We pride ourselves not only on being able to give prompt attention to our clients’ concerns, but also in working hand-in-hand with their health care professionals so as to ensure that the claims process does not interfere or interrupt their medical treatment.

We are aware that some in rural Minnesota may be concerned that a rural Minnesota law firm cannot provide legal representation on par with the larger Twin Cities law firms.  Our experience, training and dedication to the rights of injured individuals as well as our staff, the technology we have available, and our network of experts makes our firm the equal of any firm in the state or in the region.  Many of our lawyers are longstanding members of the Minnesota Trial Lawyers Association and are dedicated to the advancement of justice to the injured and protection of the rights of the individual.

On meritorious claims, we are able to undertake representation on a contingency basis. If there is no recovery, the client pays no attorney’s fee.  The firm has had great success in obtaining substantial awards of compensation for victims with injuries by settlement or by verdict and has done considerable appellate work.

Karkela, Hunt & Cheshire, PLLP, has long been involved in representing injured employees under the workers’ compensation laws of the state of Minnesota.  This experience has spanned many changes in the law, and we take great care to make sure that we keep ourselves, as well as our clients, current in this very technical and rapidly changing field of law.  Often times our clients’ workers’ compensation claims develop separate causes of action for injuries caused by the negligence of parties other than the employer such as, motor vehicle drivers, premises owners or product manufacturers.  These claims, likewise, are pursued with equal vigor and attention to detail.

We take great pride not only in the quality of the work that we perform, but also in the interest that we take in those matters which the client refers to us.  We invite you to meet with our attorneys to discuss your questions and concerns regarding injuries you, a family member or friend may have suffered.  Karkela, Hunt & Cheshire – solving problems and creating opportunities for more than a century.
