Getting injured in a multi-vehicle crash can be hard on the victim as well as on their families. The victims may not only be traumatized by the accident but may struggle to cover medical bills or to make up for lost wages due to the car accident. Three people recently suffered major injuries as a result of a crash involving three cars in Minnesota.
The crash occurred on a recent Saturday morning. It happened in the area of Highway 97. A 21-year-old man was heading east on the highway and was getting ready to turn south onto a different street. That’s when the rear of his car was hit by a van driven by a woman who is 50 years old.
The male driver was launched into traffic; he ended up striking another vehicle head-on. The van driver suffered major injuries, as did a couple who were driving in the car that was hit head-on. Two minor passengers in the van suffered injuries deemed not to be life-threatening. The 21-year-old driver also suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
Police continued to investigate the crash. The victims injured in the crash reserve the right to file personal injury suits against the party or parties who police discover caused or contributed to the collision. Financial restitution from a case that is fought successfully can help to cover hospital expenses and other losses tied to the car accident. Liability must be appropriately established in court before a judge or jury will determine claims for damages in the victims’ favor in Minnesota.
