About me

Many files can be taken on a contingency basis -- that means that you will not owe any attorney fees unless you make a recovery.*  I am always glad to offer an in-person free consultation to injured individuals.


I work largely in the area of plaintiff's personal injury litigation that relates to serious bodily injury and wrongful death.  As a Minnesota Car Accident Lawyer, I represent people that have been injured in car accidents, truck accidents, accidents caused by drunken drivers


Contact me today to set up an appointment to discuss your potential claims.  


* Every claim is different; not all claims will be taken on a contingency basis.  Attorney fees can be discussed during our intial in-person, complimentary consultation.

  • Ying Xu

    I endorse this lawyer. Attorney Eric Palmer is very knowledgeable and provided me with invaluable insights on a catastrophic injury case where the liable driver was grossly underinsured, and the liability carrier based in Minnesota was not doing the right things. I will not hesitate to recommend Eric Palmer to anyone who needs help on any personal injury matters.
