What are Minnesota's crash statistics?

In 2015, there were 411 people killed on the highways in Minnesota. While the goal is to see a reduction in crashes each year, that was the same number of people killed as in the year 2010. Interestingly, the state actually has fewer crashes, yet the number of people suffering injuries or dying in them is rising.

The main factor leading to single-vehicle crashes in Minnesota is driving at an unsafe or illegal speed. In multiple vehicle crashes, it's driver inattention, or distractions, that result in collisions. Driver inattention is a factor in around 22.7 percent of all crashes involving multiple vehicles in the state.

Criminal charges can stem from a range of activities you may not necessarily consider "that bad."

What damages can you seek after a dog attack?

The aftermath of an animal attack can cause many individuals to feel fear, shock and pain. If you have suffered serious injuries due to a dog bite, the owner of the dog may hold liability for your injuries, and you may have the ability to seek compensation for those injuries and other damages suffered. Because you may face various difficulties after involvement in such an event, seeking much-needed compensation may prove useful to you.

In Minnesota, if the attack occurred while you acted peaceably and your presence in the area of the attack was lawfully allowed, the owner of the dog can face strict liability for your injuries. Therefore, you may have reason to file a personal injury claim for special and general damages.

ATVs and children: the risk of injury is greater than we thought

All-terrain vehicles, or "ATVs," are popular in Minnesota. And you probably already know they can be very dangerous for riders of any age. But according to a recent study published earlier this year in the Journal of Emergency Medicine, ATVs could be even more dangerous for children and teenaged riders than previously realized.

The study, compiled by a professor of pediatric surgical sciences and his colleagues, looked closely at data collected in 16 previously published studies about ATV accidents and the risk factors involved when the injured rider was a child or teenager. The study concluded that the injuries sustained by children in ATV accidents are frequently more severe than the injuries sustained by children involved in automobile crashes.
