If you or a loved one has recently been injured in a car accident, truck accident, semi accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident or pedestrian accident, you may have the right to recover certain benefits from your own insurance company (called a no-fault claim) as well as damages from the insurance company of any driver who was at fault for causing the accident (called a personal injury claim).

Personal Injury Claims

Because all motorists in Minnesota are required to carry no-fault insurance to cover their medical expenses, most people injured in motor vehicle accidents are required to meet one of the following threshold requirements before they can bring a personal injury claim against a negligent driver:

  • Medical treatment expenses of $4,000 or more; or

  • Sustained a permanent injury; or

  • Had a disability of 60 days or more; or

  • Sustained a permanent disfigurement (scar); or

  • Has died as a result of their injuries.

If you have met one of the above thresholds, you can bring a personal injury claim against any negligent (at-fault) driver and their insurance company. In a personal injury claim, you may be entitled to recover the following damages:

  • Past medical bills and wage loss not covered by your no-fault claim;

  • Future medical expenses and income loss or loss of earning capacity; and

  • Compensation for your past and future pain, suffering, and emotional distress suffered as a result of your accident related injuries.
