Car Accident Lawyer St. Paul – Case Study


Our auto accident lawyers have represented many people injured in a St. Paul car accident.  Here is a case from a few years ago:

It was a nice, clear day and the roads were dry. The collision occurred in South St. Paul at the intersection of Southview Boulevard and 21st Avenue.  Our client was in his car heading eastbound on Southview Boulevard.  Southview Boulevard is one lane in each direction, and has no traffic control devices for it at the subject intersection.



As he approached the intersection with 21st Avenue South, our client saw a car stopped at the stop sign.  As our client got closer, the other car suddenly pulled out from the stop sign directly in front of him.  He slammed on his brakes and was able to avoid the car that pulled in front of him.  Unfortunately, another vehicle that was actually directly behind the first vehicle that was stopped on 21st Avenue, suddenly gunned it out into the intersection directly towards our client’s car.  Our client swerved to the left, but the other driver T-boned his vehicle, striking him right in the middle of his car.

The force of the impact from this St. Paul car crash pushed our client to toward the northeast corner of the intersection. He just barely missed a pond that is located on the north side of the road.


While our client was sitting there trying to collect himself after the crash, he watched as the driver who hit him started fleeing, taking off west down the road.  Our client was able to get the other driver’s license plate number. Fortunately, the South St. Paul police were able to locate her vehicle, finding that she was driving with a suspended permit.

Believe it or not, the insurance company for the other driver did not want to take full responsibility in this St. Paul car crash. That is why our client decided to hire an attorney. Fortunately, our best lawyer for this St. Paul car accident was able to present proof of the accident and damages that the insurance company. Therefore, they finally agreed to settle and fully compensate our client for his injury.
