Roadways across the state of Minnesota are becoming more dangerous with each passing year. These days, just going for a short drive can potentially turn into a very serious or fatal crash. It goes without saying that no one wants to be involved in a car accident. However, statistics say that the vast majority of drivers will be involved in an accident at some point in their lives. Car accidents are a leading cause of death and injury in the United States today.
Details of the unfortunate accident
Recently, a tragic three-vehicle accident in Buffalo, Minnesota claimed the life of a man. The crash happened during the afternoon hours on Highway 55 in the eastbound lanes. According to reports, a sedan had stopped on the highway attempting to make a left turn into a parking lot. Reports said the sedan was struck violently from the rear by another eastbound car.
Reportedly, the impact forced the sedan into the westbound lanes where it was hit by another sedan that was headed west. Tragically, authorities said the driver of the sedan was killed in the accident. The driver of the other car and a passenger in the westbound sedan sustained injuries that were not life-threatening, reports said.
Potential legal recourse for accident victims
It is crucial for drivers to stay focused at all times behind the wheel, especially when traveling in traffic. Those in Minnesota who have suffered injuries or the tragic loss of loved ones due to negligence in car accidents reserve the right to seek legal recourse. By contacting an experienced attorney and filing a claim, victims and families could be awarded much-needed compensation to help cover medical bills and end-of-life expenses.
