One teen injured, another killed in Minneapolis crash

No one in Rochester wants to be placed in the position of needing to pursue legal action against someone that they know. In in some instances, the circumstances that a person or family is dealing with may leave them with little choice. Car accidents may be good examples of such situations. When an accident occurs, liability typically falls to the driver the responsible for it. That includes liability for the injuries sustained by the passengers in their own vehicle. If said passengers have difficulty securing insurance coverage for their injuries (or the amount offered is not enough to cover their expenses), then they may be forced to seek compensation from the driver. 

Oftentimes, the expenses associated with a car accident will go far beyond simply having to pay for medical bills. This fact was demonstrated in a crash that recently occurred in Minneapolis. A teen was driving along with two friends in his vehicle when he lost control of the car. It hit a tractor before rolling into a ditch. Whether or not the driver was injured was not reported; what authorities did share is that he was wearing his seat belt at the time of the collision. His two passengers were not. One sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries, while the other died. 

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the crash (though they do not believe alcohol was involved). Yet if in this case (and others like it), recklessness on the part of the driver caused the accident, then they may become the targets of legal action on behalf of accident victims and their families. Those needing to initiate such action may want to first secure the services of an experienced attorney.
