Motorcycle-car accident kills owner of local car dealerships

Motorcycles are a common sight on the roads in Minnesota. In general, cars and motorcycles will share the road safely and both will keep a close eye on one another. Still, given the vulnerability of motorcyclists, it is not unusual for there to be serious injury and death when there is a car accident with a motorcycle. After this type of crash, those who were affected - whether it is due to injuries or fatalities - should understand how imperative it is to have legal assistance from an attorney who is experienced in car accidents.

Accidents will continue to occur while people are texting and driving and engaging in other distracting behaviors when behind the wheel.

Statistics: 2017 Minnesota auto accident fatalities pass 200

It is important for states to keep track of the number of motor vehicle accidents there are in any given year as well as the number of people who suffer serious injury and fatality. In Minnesota, the Office of Traffic Safety keeps a record of these statistics. At the latest counting from the OTS, there were more than 200 fatalities through August 8. While this is an improvement from 2016, it is still a worrisome number. Those who have lost a loved one in a fatal auto accident should be aware of these trends, the causes and other factors so they can take steps to consider a legal filing in the aftermath.

When there is a crash, those who have been affected should know what to do to seek compensation for what they have lost.

Teen drivers and the summer months raise risk for car accidents

Part of that is due to the inevitable increase in the number of teens who are behind the wheel once school is out.
