St. Paul Car Accident Lawyer Drunk Driver

ATTORNEY FOR ST PAUL CAR ACCIDENT CAUSED BY DRUNK DRIVER

There was a recent news report of another car accident fatality because of a drunk driver.  Alcohol was a factor in a St. Paul 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.  The woman was driving east on on a road in St. Paul when her car was struck by the drunk man’s vehicle, which was going south on the intersecting road. The woman’s vehicle then hit a tree, while the drunk driver’s vehicle hit a parked car.  The woman was pronounced dead at the scene by St. Paul paramedics. Her name and the cause of her death will be released by the Ramsey County medical examiner’s office. The suspect was taken to Regions Hospital for treatment, the police spokesman said, adding that officers obtained a search warrant for a blood alcohol test. The crash was being investigated by the St. Paul police homicide and traffic investigation units.

This is another terribly sad drunk driving case that will change many lives forever.  Our car accident injury lawyers represent many people and their family every year whose lives have been changed after being hit by a drunk driver in St. Paul. 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 – even if they have seriously injured someone.  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 who caused the accident and his insurance company.
