Car Accidents



One minute you are happily cruising down the highway listening to your tunes; the next minute you are upside on the side of the road confused and in pain. A car accident can happen in an instant but take a lifetime to recover from, both physically and emotionally.  It is important that you know your legal rights and that you are getting everything that you are entitled to through your insurance company, the other driver’s insurance company or through a personal injury lawsuit.

At the ShermoenJaksa Law we represent individuals and families of individuals dealing with the aftermath of serious car accident.  We can help you understand your legal rights and ensure that you are taken care of during this difficult time in your life.


Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death across Minnesota. However, even those that do not result in a fatality can result in serious, life altering injuries including paralysis, permanent disability and disfigurement and psychological trauma. Often scars from an auto accident can stay with your forever and leave you suffering from post traumatic stress disorder as well as other physiological problems.

Some of the more common injuries our law firm see after a car accident include:

  • Spinal and back trauma
  • Brain injuries and loss of cognitive skills
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement
  • Whip lash, shoulder injuries and neck pain
  • Limb amputation and paralysis

These injuries can result in weeks, months or even years of medical visits, rehabilitation, and loss of income as well as a loss of quality of life and emotional trauma. But, worst of all, many injured parties are not adequately taken care of through their insurance claim.


No fault insurance claims are tricky to deal with, especially when faced with a serious injury. While you may be offered compensation for your car as well as some of the medical costs, is this enough? In many cases, it is not. A Northern Minnesota car accident lawyer can fight on your behalf to ensure that you are getting everything that you are entitled to.

Furthermore, we can also investigate the cause of the crash and, if someone or a company is to blame for your accident, you could be looking at additional compensation for damages. If, for example, the accident was caused by a mechanical defect, a reckless or negligent driver or a highway defect, then you could be looking at grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
