Our Medical Negligence team helps individuals and families with claims involving serious injury or death. We work throughout Minnesota and the Midwest region.

Briggs and Morgan has an active and extensive trial practice. This includes jury trials in state and federal courts and administrative hearings across the country. The firm is fully equipped with the latest trial management and presentation tools and the firm is deeply staffed both with trial lawyers and support personnel.

Our attorneys help families and individuals in personal injury and wrongful death claims involving such things as medical negligence and medical device failure, product liability, industrial and consumer product failure or malfunction, automobile and trucking accidents, worksite injuries and accidents, and other situations where someone acts wrongfully or a product has failed. A significant number of these clients are referred to the firm by other lawyers and by judges.

Members of our Medical Negligence group include lawyers with over thirty years of experience in this area and lawyers admitted to membership in national, invitational organizations such as The American College of Trial Lawyers, The American Board of Trial Advocates, and The International Society of Barristers.
