A motor vehicle accident that took place in Minnesota left one person dead, and it may lead to charges for the driver involved. According to the reports, a semitruck rear-ended a truck that was pulling a trailer. This resulted in the trailer and truck entering into a spin while on Highway I-94.
If you have been following recalls and problems with vehicles in the news, then you may recall a case in which a family claimed that two young children were badly hurt as a result of front seats that collapsed backwards in a collision. The case, which was tried in Texas, resulted in Toyota being found grossly negligent, failing to warn consumers that their vehicle's front seats could collapse backwards in some serious rear-end collisions at high speeds.
Motor vehicle accidents happen every day, and for many people, it's the last day they feel safe in a vehicle. The devastation a crash can wreak may result in major changes to a person's life. For instance, a crash could lead to a disability or other major life changes that take time and money to repair.
