Understanding the Laws That Impact Your Personal Injury Lawsuit
In Minnesota, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. The deadline is called the statute of limitations, and if you do not file a lawsuit before the two-year period passes, you will be prohibited from doing so.
While this is true, there are exceptions to this. These exceptions further complicate the personal injury claims process. This is especially true for motor vehicle accidents.
The state of Minnesota is a no-fault insurance state for motor vehicle accidents. Based on this, all drivers must maintain $40,000 in PIP (personal injury protection) coverage at a minimum. PIP coverage compensates victims for accident-related medical costs, lost wages, and any replacement costs they may experience.
However, if your losses exceed your policy limits, then it may be possible to file an additional claim to receive compensation from the at-fault party or their insurance company.
Regardless of what caused your injuries, having an experienced personal injury attorney from Nelson Personal Injury, LLC will ensure you get the representation and results from your lawsuit or claim.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
When you make a personal injury claim, you must deal with insurance companies. It is important to remember that these companies and those who work for them are in the business of making money.
Insurance adjusters are not there to help with your claim, even if they seem helpful and concerned. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible for your claim.
Because of the tactics used by insurance companies, you must be careful about what information you share. They will use anything possible to justify a low settlement or to deny your claim.
Our Cambridge personal injury attorneys are experienced in dealing with insurance companies and their tactics. We will negotiate a fair settlement offer by presenting evidence and arguing your case.
