Minnesota Wrongful Death Attorney


Fighting aggressively for your right to compensation.

Nothing causes more anguish and raises more questions than the unexpected death of a loved one. The anguish and questions intensify when the death appears to be caused by the negligence or carelessness of another party. You and your family may be entitled to monetary compensation if your loved one’s needless death was caused by the negligence of another person.

The Schafer Law Firm, P.A. provides you with compassionate guidance throughout every stage of your case. Attorney Brent S. Schafer personally handles every wrongful death case the firm accepts. He has deep compassion for those who have lost loved ones due to the negligence of others, and he is unrelenting in his fight to obtain justice for them.

If successful, such a claim can reimburse a family for many damages, including loss of wages, pain and suffering and funeral expenses.

Common causes of wrongful deaths.

Wrongful deaths can occur in almost any daily activity or employment. Some of the most common causes of fatal auto collisions include:

  • Explosions
  • Electrocution
  • Head-on collisions
  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving

Take action before the statute of limitations takes effect.

According to the statute of limitations in Minnesota, a wrongful death action must be “…commenced within three years after the date of death provided that the action must be commenced within six years after the act or omission.”

Beware of insurance companies.

Insurance companies handle thousands of death claims each year. These tragic family deaths are handled as simple “claims” that stack up on adjusters’ desks. Like every for-profit business, insurance companies are concerned with their bottom line. Brent S. Schafer, a Minnesota personal injury attorney, is concerned about getting just compensation for the unnecessary death of your loved one. To Mr. Schafer, your case is not just a “claim.” A family death is an event that will be recounted for generations.

Tragically, families are often left financially destitute as the result of the death of a loved one or family member. They should not have to be. Spouses and family members may be entitled to collect for many costs resulting from the negligent death of a loved one, including future lost wages and companionship.
