What Forms Of Compensation Am I Eligible To Receive?
While medical bills may be the first thing on your mind, there are many forms of damages you are eligible to recover. These include property damage, lost wages, lost earning potential, rehabilitation costs, payment for disability, pain and suffering and more. Our attorneys can walk you through all the damages that apply to your unique case.
What Should I Do After A Car Accident?
Always seek medical attention first. Even if you do not believe you have been seriously injured, you may have injuries that have yet to show their symptoms. And the sooner you seek treatment, the better.
Also be sure to contact the authorities in the event of a serious accident. Take photos of the scene if you can, and retrieve the contact information of any witnesses, as well as the insurance information of the other driver(s).
Won’t My Auto Insurance Cover Car Accident-Related Medical Bills?
Car insurance is required by law in Minnesota. However, the coverage limits are not always adequate to cover the medical expenses caused by an auto accident – nor does every driver abide by the law. Many are without insurance, or are underinsured (the minimum requirement is $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident – small limits that are easily exceeded by serious medical bills and/or death).
However, your insurance is set at a specific, rigid limit. In the case of an auto accident involving many people or involving serious injury or death, the liability limits often fall short, leaving unpaid debts, financial insecurity and injury in its wake. When this is the case, the claim process becomes much more complex. Hiring an attorney will ensure that a legal professional is working on your behalf, knowledgeable of the legal action available to help you.
