The snow has started falling in Minnesota and that means residents will be driving in winter weather conditions for the coming months. While most motorists will drive carefully when roads are slick with snow and ice, there will always be those who ignore the dangerous road conditions and drive recklessly. When this happens, a negligent driver can cause a car accident that injures or kills another person.
Car accidents can cost more than just one's health - they can have a significant financial impact on a person as well. Depending on the severity of the injury, a person could face tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses. If the injury prevents the victim from working, they may be unable to afford their daily living expenses. And, if the victim is killed, their family will have to go on without the income and support their loved one provided.
Therefore, those injured in car accidents, or the families of those who are killed, may want to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. At Walsh & Gaertner, we understand the lasting impact a car accident can have on a person. We aim to make it so that our clients can focus on regaining their health, while we deal with insurance companies or take legal action against the responsible party.
While snow can be pretty, it can cause roads to become treacherous. If a driver fails to drive carefully and causes a collision that injures another person, the injured party may want to pursue a legal claim. Doing so can not only provide the injured party with the financial resources they need to recover, but it can also give victims a sense of justice.
