Minneapolis Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers

ATTORNEY FOR MINNEAPOLIS CAR ACCIDENT CAUSED BY DRUNK DRIVER

The Minneapolis Star Tribune recent reported a car accident fatality because of a drunk driver.  Alcohol was a factor in a north Minneapolis collision that killed a woman Friday night, police say.  A 28-year-old driver was arrested after he struck another car, fled the scene and returned. The crash happened about 6:10 p.m. at Newton and 29th Avenues N., police spokesman Corey Schmidt said in a prepared statement.  The woman was driving east on 29th Avenue N. in Minneapolis when her car was struck by the drunk man’s vehicle, which was going south on Newton, Schmidt said. The woman’s vehicle then hit a tree, while the man’s vehicle hit a parked car.  The woman was pronounced dead at the scene by Minneapolis paramedics. Her name and the cause of her death will be released by the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office. The suspect was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment, Schmidt said, adding that officers obtained a search warrant for a blood alcohol test. The crash was being investigated by the Minneapolis police homicide and traffic investigation units.

This is another terribly sad case that will change many lives forever.  Our car accident lawyers represent many people and their family every year whose lives have been changed after being hit by a drunk driver in Minneapolis. Amazingly, we often see cases where the drunk driver is the only one not injured, even though others may be catastrophically injured or killed. Unfortunately, the law is still too forgiving to the drunk driver who caused the car accident, and they often serve too little or even no time in jail.  A car accident lawyer can sue the drunk driver and possibly the bar that over-served him and can at least make sure the injured victim or their family receive monetary compensation from the drunk driver and his insurance company.
