One of the biggest misconceptions that I hear time and time again is like well, Minnesota is a no fault state so that means I can’t bring a claim. Nothing could be further from the truth. What no fault means in the context of a Minnesota motor vehicle Collison is that your insurance company takes care of your medical bills and my insurance takes care of my medical bills, my economic loss, the services that are available that I’ll talk about later but that’s what happens your insurance company covers your bills, mine covers mine. Now, the at fault insurance company, so if the driver who rear ended you they’re responsible for your property damage, they’re responsible for your rental car while your car gets fixed, they’re responsible for what it takes to replace your car if it can’t be fixed. So fault is a big issue and that’s, like I said, probably the biggest question I get is well, how can I bring a claim it’s a no fault state? And I said well, we’ll take care of your medical bills and then we’ll go after the at fault party.
