Albert Lea Austin MN Car Accident Lawyer


Our attorneys have represented a number of people injured in a car accident in Albert Lea and Austin. If you are in a car crash in Minnesota, and your vehicle is damaged because of the other driver’s fault, the other driver’s insurance should pay for the repair or replacement of your vehicle for the damage caused by their insured. Our best MN car accident lawyers frequently represent injury victims in rear end car accidents in Austin MN and Albert Lea whose accidents happened along Highways 35 or 65 or Highway 90. Many times, the insurance for the other driver will admit their driver’s fault and pay for the damage.

Unfortunately, sometimes the other driver’s auto insurance company disagrees the car accident was his fault (usually because the other driver doesn’t want to admit he or she was at fault) and refuses to pay, or, even worse, the other driver has no insurance. In those cases, you will have to submit the vehicle damage claim to YOUR insurance company if you have collision coverage. Your insurance company will then pay to fix or replace your car, but they will subtract the amount of your deductible. After your insurance company pays to fix or replace your car, they will try to get their money back from the other driver’s insurance (usually through intra-company arbitration) or from the other driver if he was uninsured. If they do get money from the other driver or his insurer because of the crash, they will pay you back your deductible at the same time. Our top attorneys have represented many people in car accident cases in Albert Lea MN, Austin, and other cities throughout Minnesota.
