Personal Injury Attorney Robert A. Correia Named Attorney of the Year
April 18, 2023 – Paul W. Schroepfer & Robert A. Correia
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota—Robert A. Correia, Shareholder and Lead Attorney of Robichaud, Schroepfer & Correia, P.A., has been named Attorney of the Year 2022 by the Minnesota Lawyer Magazine, a well-deserved honor. In 2022, Correia secured a $1 million jury verdict for a client in a car accident case. The insurance company had initially offered only $7,500 pre-lawsuit and $17,500 during mediation, despite its devastating consequences on his health, well-being, and lifestyle.
A 2017 car accident left the client, a man in his 40s, with severe neck and back injuries. While fault was not in question, determining a fair settlement amount proved challenging. The injured man faces a lifetime of medical care, which heavily influenced the jury’s decision. The significant implications of his injuries will undoubtedly impact his daily life for the rest of his life. The case serves as a reminder of the long-lasting effects a car accident can have on an individual, physically and financially.
“What the insurance company offered wasn’t even in the right stratosphere, let alone ballpark,” says Correia. “It was my honor to help find a happy ending for this gentleman as he deals with the life-altering implications of the accident.”
Although the legal case presented a significant challenge because the insurance company’s settlement offer differed significantly from the amount the jury ultimately awarded, Correia emphasized the importance of preparation for himself and his client. His strategy involved readying his client for testimony and ensuring he fully comprehended the implications of going to trial and his alternative options. Through diligent preparation, Correia successfully navigated the complexities of the case, resulting in a favorable outcome for his client.
An experienced trial lawyer, Correia’s dedication to achieving justice for his clients is well-known in the community. He focuses on representing individuals injured by another’s negligence, with a passion for securing fair compensation for them. His latest success comes on the heels of several other high-profile cases that have made him one of Minnesota’s most sought-after attorneys.
In 2022, Correia achieved an impressive feat by securing a substantial $1.25 million settlement for another client injured in a car accident. This case was particularly complex, with significant disputes over who was liable for the accident and concerns about future medical care. Despite these challenges, Correia’s legal prowess prevailed, resulting in a well-deserved outcome for their client.
The attorney credits much of his success to hard work and dedication to helping those whose rights have been violated or disregarded by corporations or insurance companies. “It is humbling to be recognized as Attorney of the Year,” Correia says. “It energizes me to fight tirelessly for justice on behalf of my clients.”
