Minnesota 43rd in Traffic Fatalities Nationally
Data collected and published by Find the Data (site since removed) places Minnesota 43rd nationally for traffic fatalities. This ranking is impressive but far from perfect, and still sees hundreds of families in our state impacted by the untimely loss of a loved one following an auto accident every year. If you have been impacted by this type of loss, our Minneapolis wrongful death lawyers can help. We have decades of combined experience holding negligent drivers accountable and are prepared to stand by your family’s side, protect you against the exploitative and predatory tactics of insurance companies, and help you secure every penny you are due.
Using data gathered from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System Encyclopedia and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Find the Data shows there were 364 fatal car accidents and 411 traffic-related deaths in Minnesota in 2015. Of those, 31% were caused by a drunk driver, although alcohol is not the leading cause of fatal car accidents in our state. Regardless of the cause, if you have lost a loved one in an accident they were not responsible for you may be entitled to significant compensation. Our fatal car accident lawyers can begin working on your case right away to determine liability and take your claim as far as needed to make sure your family is awarded the justice you deserve.
