Recent Minnesota Personal Injury Case Successes

Meuser & Associate secures millions in dollars in benefits for our workers' compensation and car accident clients each year. Each case is different, and you should consult with an attorney for a fair evaluation of your claim.

Here's a couple our of recent successes:
  • Meuser & Associate recently secured a jury verdict in excess of $100,000 for a gentleman that was involved in a car accident with two other cars. He had a prior history of low back pain dating back 20 years, but experienced an increase in pain following the accident. He underwent a variety of treatments, including injections, physical therapy, and chiropractic. He suffered a number of aggravations to his low back injury at work and at home. Ultimately, nearly two years after the car accident, he had to undergo a lumbar decompression surgery. Thankfully, with the exception of a few weeks following surgery, our client was able to return to work with no wage loss. Prior to trial, we secured a settlement with one the insurance company of one of the drivers, but the insurance company for the other driver, who was primarily at fault, offered only $12,500.00. The jury found that driver 100% at fault for the accident, and awarded over $100,000 in damages. 
  • We secured a $65,000.00 binding arbitration award for a gentleman who was involved in a rollover car accident while in the course and scope of his job as a firefighter. We had previously secured a significant settlement of his workers’ compensation claim on his behalf. Prior to the car accident, our client had sustained numerous, serious work-related injuries to his neck and back during his career as a firefighter. The car accident aggravated his neck and back conditions, including several herniated discs. He was unable to continue working as a firefighter following the car accident. 
  • Meuser & Associate recovered a $28,000.00 settlement for a young man who was involved in a car accident. He had underlying juvenile discogenic disease, which caused premature degenerative changes throughout the spine. It was difficult to differentiate which problems in his spine were caused by the car accident and which problems were pre-existing. His doctor concluded that the car accident substantially aggravated his underlying condition. 
If you sustain injuries in a car accident due to someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, including medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering.

The verdict or settlement of your own case will depend upon its particular facts. Past results do not guarantee future results. Every case is different and must be judged on its own merits. The cases reported in the website are not meant to cause any unjustified expectations regarding the merits of your own claim.
