Serious Injuries

Helping relieve the legal and financial burdens for victims of serious injuries.

No injury is the same. We have helped people with the following claims.

Slip, Trip & Fall

Whether it’s a slippery floor, an uneven sidewalk, or other hidden hazards-property owners have a duty to provide entrant(s) on their property reasonably safe conditions. Commonly referred to as “premises liability” these claims maybe brought against the property owner under the following circumstances:

  • Negligence
  • Failure to maintain
  • Known danger
  • Actions or inactions cause damage

Dog Bites/Attacks

According to a study from the Center for Disease Control, there are approximately 4.7 Million dog bites in the Unites States each year, of which 800,000 require medical care. In Minnesota a dog owner is responsible for damages when their dog attacks or injuries a person “without provocation.” These claims are then generally brought under the dog-owners homeowner’s policy to help cover medical bills as well as pain and suffering.

Elder care abuse

According to the National Institute on Aging 730,000 senior citizens are in assisted living facilities and 1.4 million are in nursing home facilities. By 2030 it’s anticipated that 3.85 million senior citizens will be in some form of care facility. It is a hard and straining family decision to put the faith in strangers to care for your loved one and expect the same care as you would provide. Yet, all too often, senior citizens fall victim to abuse in these facilities. Abuse does not always mean physical, sexual or emotional – it can also be financial or fraudulent. We have helped clients with the following:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Hoyer lift injuries


An assault is defined as a threat to do bodily harm to another with the present ability to carry out that threat. Assaults are common in criminal proceedings; however victims can often bring a civil action directly against the accused. Common types of assault cases we have worked on include:

  • Bar assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Invasion of privacy

Scuba diving accidents

Most scuba diving accidents are preventable, injuries often resulting from improper supervision, technique, or faulty equipment. Tom Weidner is one of a select group of attorneys in the Midwest who handles scuba diving accident and death cases.

Physical Disfigurations (Paralysis, Amputations, Burns, Scarring)

Physical disfigurations can be cause by a multitude of incidents, whether it is a foot amputation by a bulldozer, burn from spilled coffee, or infections resulting in amputations. Injuries of this extent can cause years of medical treatment and therapy.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for your work on my injury case. I am sure it was a small case in comparison to what you normally do, but I really appreciate that you did not give up on it.
