CAR ACCIDENT HIT ON HIGHWAY RAMP – MN INJURY LAWYERS
Every year our MN car accident lawyers get calls from people were hit in their car getting on or off of a highway entrance or exit ramp. The accident is usually caused by our client being rear ended when the car behind is looking to merge and forgets there is a car ahead of him. Fortunately, most of these entrance or exit ramp crashes are at slower speeds, but not always. If the car behind has good acceleration and starts a ways back to merge from the on ramp onto the highway, it can quickly get to highway speeds before causing the rear end accident. Our lawyers have represented many people injured in a crash on a highway on ramp or off ramp in Minnesota.
At a minimum there will be damage to your car from the highway ramp crash, and our auto accident lawyers have seen many Minnesota cases with serious injuries caused by a crash at slower speeds. Many of these crashes start out looking like simple whiplash injuries, but sometimes they can turn out to be much worse. It is always important to exchange information with the other driver after a crash, but doing this on an entrance ramp or exit ramp can be difficult or even dangerous. You should pull off to the side of the road if possible, but it would usually be better for both cars to drive forward after the accident and get off the ramp if possible before exchanging information. If there is a serious injury or the cars would be better not moved, you should call the police and 911 immediately.
