St. Paul, MN asked in Personal Injury for Minnesota

Q: I was doing a sightseeing tour of St. Paul with my friends in St. Paul when the limo driver failed to break at a

stoplight and hit another car. How do I know whether to sue the limo driver for not braking or the company for possibly not maintaining the brakes?

A: It could be both. Even if the brakes were bad, the driver must have known that before he took you on as a passenger. You should contact an attorney who has experience in this area of the law for help. Generally there is no cost for a conference and generally most attorneys work on a percentage basis in these type of cases.
