Minnesota Family Seeks Damages in Fatal Car Crash
The trustee of a teenager who died in a car crash near Claremont, MN, in 2010 is suing the driver and father of the car the teen rear-ended. The lawsuit seeks compensation for loss of aid, medical expenses and funeral expenses, as well as other compensation, according to the PostBulletin.com.
The deceased teen was in the second car traveling in a “caravan” of four cars on their way to a football game. When the driver of the lead car came upon a deer in the roadway he slammed on his brakes causing a chain-reaction collision. The injuries the teen sustained in the accident were fatal.
The lawsuit alleges the driver of the lead car was driving too fast and should have tapped his brakes to warn those following him of the obstacle in the road.
The suit seeks over $100,000, including $50,000 for “the loss of aid, comfort, advice, support, guidance and income which decedent would have provided for his next-of-kin during his lifetime,” and nearly $75,000 in medical expenses.
The family named in the suit has not yet filed a reply.
