If you are involved in a car accident, you are automatically entitled to certain insurance benefits. But there are other benefits you may be entitled to depending on which driver was at fault.
We get many calls from people who see tv advertisements that promise you’ll get $20,000 because you were involved in an accident. Those TV commercials are misleading and unfairly confuse people. What they are referring to is the fact that every auto insurance policy in Minnesota comes with at least $20,000 in medical coverage. This means that if you have injuries that are caused by an accident, your auto insurance will pay up to $20,000 in medical bills related to those injuries. It is called No-Fault insurance because that coverage is required regardless of who was at fault in the accident. But unlike what is suggested in these tv commercials, that $20,000 doesn’t go to you. The payments made by the auto insurance go directly to your doctors …for treatment you receive because of the accident.
No-Fault insurance for your medical bills is only one type of insurance that applies after a car crash. There is also insurance for lost wages, future medical bills, pain and suffering. There is even coverage for funeral expenses if someone dies.
At the Rochlin Law Firm, we have 24 years’ experience helping people get through the insurance issues after an accident. We make sure things are done correctly, that you are treated fairly, and that you receive all the compensation you are entitled to.
