Motor vehicle accidents are a common occurrence in our mobile society. Motor vehicle accidents are also a leading cause of injury and death. For that reason, Minnesota drivers are required to carry auto insurance providing a minimum of $20,000 in medical benefits and up to $20,000 in lost wage benefits.
When it comes to automobile accidents, Minnesota is a “no-fault” state. “No fault” means that regardless of who caused the accident, your own insurance policy must pay your medical bills and wage loss as long as they are considered reasonable, necessary, and related to the injuries resulting from the accident.
A person involved in an automobile accident may have a “no fault” claim against their own insurance company, as well as a liability claim against the other driver’s insurance company. The attorneys at McCarten Law Firm work with clients to ensure that wage loss, medical bills, prescriptions, and mileage are compensated by the client’s own insurance company. In addition to the no-fault claim, our attorneys complete an investigation of each auto accident and assist clients in preparing a liability claim.
The goal of our personal injury attorneys is to ensure that injured clients are compensated for that which they are entitled, allowing the client to focus on healing without the stress of dealing with insurance companies.
