Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and wrongful death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety reported some troubling car accident numbers in 2014:
As you can see, vehicle crashes are a common factor of life. In fact, if you haven’t already been involved in a motor vehicle accident, chances are likely you will at some point in your life.
Unfortunately, it’s not always immediately clear who’s at fault in a car accident. Police officers are committed to making sure everyone is safe and closing the case, and insurance companies are focused most on paying out as little as possible.
Minnesota is what’s known as a “no-fault” state, which has advantages and disadvantages. For example, you don’t need to determine who’s at fault before pursuing personal injury damages; however, no-fault states have more stringent limits on the amount of damages you can pursue. To pursue compensatory damages above and beyond what’s covered by insurance, there are some conditions:
Assuming one of these conditions is met, you’re free to pursue damages against the driver at fault for the incident.
If police are called to the scene, it’s standard operating procedure for them to conduct their own investigation into the accident and file a report. Insurance companies will do the same, but if you’ve been injured in a car accident, call a legal team to conduct one on your behalf. These will be the only people truly invested in protecting your best interests. Here’s how Knutson+Casey will go to work for you:
