Dawn was a passenger in a pickup driven by her husband, Don. While traveling home from a weekend with family Don fell asleep at the wheel and the truck left the interstate and rolled. Dawn severed her spinal cord causing paraplegia. In Minnesota, an insurance claim can be made by one family member against another family member for negligence. At first Dawn was reluctant because she felt bad for making a claim based on Don's negligence. By limiting the claims to only seek the available insurance, Dawn's concerns were assuaged. A significant recovery was made against Don's liability insurance, which helped provide for Dawn's extensive medical needs in the future.
