Car accidents can be expensive, and statistics show that over 160 billion dollars are spent in America every year on car accident costs alone. In Minnesota, no-fault insurance law is followed a car accident takes place. This means that individuals will turn to their insurer to cover the damages of their collision no matter who was responsible for causing the accident in the first place. For a minor accident that does not involve any injuries or any serious damages, a person will not need a lot of legal intervention to make sure they are properly compensated.
However, when the accident is more serious and there are serious medical bills that need to be tended to, a prison should get in touch with a car accident lawyer as soon as possible to get the necessary help. In more serious accidents, the no-fault rule does have exceptions. If a person faces more than $4000 of medical expenses and if they suffered a permanent injury or disfigurement, they may be able to make a legal claim against the individual who caused the accident and not just with their own insurance company.
Whatever the case is, a person should act fast and get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible after their accident. Recovering from serious injuries can take time and the physical and emotional strain is already a lot for anyone to bear. The legal process should be left to the professionals so a person can relax and take the time they need to recover from their sudden injuries.
Partial fault in a car accident in Minnesota
If matters go to court after a car accident, a person may be held partially at fault for the collision, the court will look at the facts of the case and decide who was at fault and who should pay for all the damages that were faced. When it turns out that the accident wasn’t entirely the fault of someone else, and that a person was partially at fault for the accident then the modified comparative fault rule will be applied. This means that a person will have their compensation reduced by as much of the collision is deemed to be their fault
