Persons harmed through no fault of their own, or their survivors, always benefit by consulting with a car accident attorney.

Peter J. Kestner of McEwen & Kestner, PLLC, a noted Minnesota law firm, says his state’s steadily dropping vehicle accident rate is paired with a greater tendency on the part of car accident victims to litigate to win justice.

His law practice has seen a slight rise in such litigation cases, corresponding with what he believes is a national trend perhaps tied to the economy.

In recent years overall vehicle accident rates in Minnesota have decreased from more than 100,000 per year to around 72,000 per year, according to figures put out by the state’s Department of Public Safety.

But lawsuits haven’t declined nearly as much, says Kestner.

“Accident victims more than ever realize that to get fair compensation for their losses they need to be represented by a qualified car accident lawyer,” he says. “Especially as insurance companies use their own attorneys to effectively limit payouts.”

His law firm’s website notes that initial consultations are provided free of charge.

“The one thing most car accidents have in common is that the persons harmed through no fault of their own, or their survivors, always benefit by consulting with a car accident attorney. And sooner is better than later,” Kestner adds.

“In fact, before even setting out in morning traffic you should be clear about exactly what you’ll do and who you’ll call in case of a serious road accident,” he says.
