Timothy Jung is a shareholder with Lind Jensen Sullivan & Peterson P.A. Timothy defends workers’ compensation, personal injury and commercial claims, and he advises employers regarding recommended efforts to minimize claims and losses. Since 1987, he has established an impressive track record of efficiently resolving the varied claims that arise from accidents, injuries and other disputes that occur at the workplace, business premises, or on the roadways.
Over 25+ years of litigation, he has earned the trust of is clients while encountering pretty much every type of case you could imagine, simple to complex. Clients call Tim when — a teachers’ assistant tries to break up a fight at school and is injured, a peace officer suffers a stroke at work, a trapeze artist falls from high in an arena, counselors on a bus hang from a collapsing interstate bridge, a lawyer is shot by a criminal defendant in court, a highway worker is crushed by his heavy equipment…. or a clerk trips over his own telephone cord and hurts his back.
Tim is equally effective litigating workers’ compensation and civil disputes, including the claims that involve both. He regularly defends businesses of all sizes and all industries, non-profits, governmental entities such as counties and school districts, and individuals regarding any type of claim that could possibly arise from an accident or injury.
Many insurers and self-insured employers choose to retain specialty counsel for matters of alleged employer liability (such as Lambertson contribution claims or retaliation claims) and subrogation recovery actions, and Timothy frequently serves in that capacity.
Tim pursues a direct and pragmatic “problem-solving” approach to litigation, and tailors the solution to the goals of the client and the specific facts of each case. Tim believes understanding the client’s business or organization is essential to effectively defending both occupational injury claims and negligence claims. Close relationships built over decades with clients allows Timothy to regularly participate in loss prevention and risk management.
Tim graduated with honors from the University of Minnesota Law School and Concordia College of Moorhead, Minnesota where he studied business and economics. He is a member of the Hennepin County, Minnesota and American Bar Associations, and served as co-chair of the HCBA Workers’ Compensation Committee for several years. Currently, he works on workers’ compensation issues within the Tort Trial and Insurance practice section of the American Bar Association. As a frequent lecturer, Tim regularly delivers seminars concerning workers’ compensation law, medical evidence strategies, the Minnesota No-Fault Act, risk management, employer third-party litigation, subrogation recovery strategies, and the interaction of workers’ compensation law with negligence and employment issues.
Outside of his legal work, Tim plays trombone in an orchestra and concert band, and he leads wilderness backpacking trips in the High Sierra of California.
