About Me

Chuck Slane of TSR Injury Law (612) TSR-TIME. HELPING INJURED PEOPLE.


has a reputation for being one of the best personal
injury litigators in Minnesota. He has handled numerous jury trials, and
has obtained many six and seven figure verdicts for his clients. He has
trial experience in many different types of personal injury claims,
including automobile accidents, premises liability, dram shop, wrongful
death, and insurance coverage cases.


It is Chuck’s belief that his greatest attribute as a lawyer is his
ability to listen to and spend time with his clients. The only way that a
lawyer can do a good job of representing a client in the courtroom is
to truly know them and understand what they have gone through. It is
that experience that allows the story to be properly told so that it
will be understood.


The following are just a few of his success stories:


  • Kieper v. Shea, $200,000 verdict for a client
    who underwent spinal fusion surgery as a result of a car crash. The
    initial insurance offer was $15,000.

  • Tsering
    v. Breault
    , $520,000 verdict for a client with a shattered
    knee. The insurance companies offer was $50,000;

  • Yang v. Blaney, verdict for $200,000 for a man that
    suffered a fractured vertebra. The insurance company offered $100,000;

  • State Farm v. Hachman, verdict of the full $100,000 policy
    limit in a coverage dispute with an automobile insurance company. The
    insurer made no offer because they could not possibly lose;

  • Bourne v. Wente, verdict for $48,000 for a young lady with a
    muscular injury. The insurance company offered $5,000;

  • Spelios
    v. Crenlo

    burned over 34% of his body. The insurance company offered $100,000.

  • Easley v. Vang, verdict for $92,000 for a young lady with a
    muscular injury. The insurance company offered $15,000.

    muscular injury. Insurance company offered $15,000.
