St. Peter Car Accident Laws

Car accidents in Minnesota vary legally from many other states, in that Minnesota is a no-fault state. For some clients this is quite fortunate, as it means there does not need to be an official party at fault for someone to pursue compensatory damages. However, it comes with a catch – a case must fulfill certain prerequisites to establish a basis to seek those damages.

Requirements for pursuing a personal injury case in St. Peter, MN:

  • There must be proof of more than $4,000 in medical expenses as a direct result of the accident.
  • The victim must have experienced 60-plus days of disability or disfigurement from the accident.

The term disability does not always exclude those individuals who suffered injuries but have been able to resume working. Some individuals suffer injuries to an extent that they may pursue damages but can continue working and living a relatively normal life. In other cases, the person is severely disabled, or even killed. In all these scenarios, our firm knows how to help you find the best approach for your case.
