In Minnesota, all motor vehicle insurance is governed by the state’s no-fault laws. Under the statute, when you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, some medical expenses, loss of income and other miscellaneous costs are paid for by your insurance company, regardless of who was at fault. Your insurance company will pay a broad range of benefits, including:
- Medical expenses, from doctor visits and hospitalizations to prescription and mileage reimbursement for travel to medical facilities and care providers
- Job retraining, education and counseling services if you are disabled and cannot return to work
- Compensation for loss of income at a rate of 85% of your loss of gross income to a maximum of $500 per week
- Compensation for household services that you cannot perform, such as housecleaning, lawn work and snow removal
If you can demonstrate that the crash was the fault of the other driver, you can make a claim directly to his or her insurance provider, provided you can show that you have at least $4,000 in medical expenses, the inability to work or perform substantially all your daily normal activities for at least 60 days, or a permanent injury or disfigurement verified by your doctor. If the crash involves a fatality, the other driver is subject to suit.
