INSURANCE COMPENSATION AFTER CAR ACCIDENT INJURY
The compensation you get after a car accident in Minnesota depends on how the crash happened, the extent of your injury from the crash, and the auto insurance available for the vehicles involved in the crash. Even if the accident was your fault, you may be entitled to some compensation after a car accident. For example, if you have collision coverage on your car, your insurance will pay to fix or replace the vehicle even if you were at fault. Likewise, because MN is a No-Fault state, your insurance will automatically pay at least the first $20,000 of medical bills and wage loss if you were injured in the car accident, no matter who was at fault. See WHAT IS NOT FAULT INSURANCE.
If the car accident was the other driver’s fault, you will receive compensation from their insurance to fix or replace your car, and possibly for additional medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering depending on the extent of your injury.
There may also be additional insurance compensation available after a serious car accident depending on the extent of your injuries. This primarily relates to underinsured motorist coverage – which comes with every automobile policy in Minnesota.
