FYI: About Motor Vehicle Accidents And The Laws Of Minnesota
Minnesota is a no-fault state. The term no-fault refers to the fact that, in most cases, the medical costs, wage loss and certain other expenses of a person injured in a collision will be paid by the injured person’s own insurance, without regard to who was at fault in the collision. The trade-off for receiving these relatively automatic insurance payments is that only certain injured parties can sue the at-fault party for other damages (for example, pain and suffering).
To sue for damages outside the coverage of the no-fault insurance policy, the injured party must meet one of four criteria: (1) the injured party’s medical expenses (not counting diagnostic expenses) must be $4,000 or more; (2) the injured party must have been disabled for 60 days or more; (3) the injured party must have suffered a permanent injury; or (4) the injured party must have died as a result of the injuries.
