Filing A Minneapolis, Minnesota Car Accident Injury Claim
If you are in a car accident in Minneapolis, you have two separate claims. A claim against the person who caused the car accident for your injuries, pain and suffering and your general damages. You also have a No-Fault claim for your medical expenses and wage loss.
The most significant claim from these accidents is your liability claim against the person who caused the car accident. This is where we prove negligence and claim money damages for your injuries, pain and suffering and any other losses including wage loss and other economic losses. Most cases can be settled and you need competent representation to recover as much as possible from the insurance company. The insurance companies know which lawyers can back up their talk with effective trial skills. If they know you and your car accident lawyer and auto attorney are ready to take them to trial, they will take your case more seriously. Martin Montilino has been taking them to trial for nearly 20 years and that experience will help you make the best recovery on your case.
Minneapolis, Minnesota has what’s known as No-Fault benefits for medical expenses, wage loss benefits, Uninsured Motorist Coverage (UM) and Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UIM). These are all mandatory coverages in this state. An insurance company must provide that coverage to you when you buy your policy.
This No-Fault system provides that no matter how the car accident happened or who is at fault, each person looks to their own insurance policy for medical, wage loss and UM and UIM coverage. You have a right to up to $20,000.00 in medical and $20,000.00 in wage loss coverage. If the insurer denies your benefits, you can take them to Arbitration to recover them. Martin Montilino has handled hundreds of No-Fault Arbitrations and has the skill to get these benefits from the insurance companies.
Uninsured Motorist coverage allows you to make a recovery for your damages and pain and suffering if the person who caused the car accident was uninsured. Underinsured Motorist coverage allows you to recover money from your own insurance if the person who caused the accident did not have enough coverage to pay all your damages.
Uninsured and Underinsured coverage is very important because it provides security to you in situations where you will not be covered by the other party. I tell my friends, family and clients to get as much of this coverage as they can afford. It is that important and you will only know this if something bad happens to you.
Whether you were on foot, on a bike, motorcycle, truck or car, we have handled cases like yours. Let us handle your case and we will take you through the liability and No-Fault process and ultimately recover for you what you deserve.
