ST. PAUL REAR END ACCIDENT – MN INJURY ATTORNEYS
Our car accident lawyers have handled many rear-end crash cases in St. Paul. In this injury case, the auto accident occurred on February 1, 2017, a Monday, at approximately 3:45pm. It was a clear day and the roads were dry. Our client was coming from Lowes and heading home.
Given the time of day, there was a fair amount of traffic on the highways in St. Paul, and as traffic started to slow, our client also slowed down and came to a stop. After coming to a stop, she looked in her rear-view mirror and saw a 2016 Silverado truck with an extra cab that was pulling a load of dirt coming up very fast behind her. She realized that the other driver was not going to stop so she braced for impact, clenching her hands on the steering wheel and straightening her arms.
The truck rammed the rear of her vehicle, pushing it into the vehicle in front of her.
Initially, our client was in shock and felt very confused. Her next reaction was anger because she had just purchased her vehicle a few months prior to the crash. She then began feeling stiffness in the left side of her neck and pain in her arms. She got out of her vehicle and spoke briefly to the man who was driving the vehicle in front of her. The driver of the vehicle that hit her also came up and talked to her and said, “I guess I was going a little too fast.” He also told her that it was his first day on the job.
