Personal Injury Laws in Minnesota
Minnesota has special rules that apply to personal injury claims, and you need to be aware of them f you want to recover the amount of compensation you need. We’ll discuss different injury claims and the Minnesota laws that apply to them:
Auto accidents- Victims of car, motorcycle or truck accidents must file a claim with their insurer to recover their medical expenses and other economic damages unless they meet the following requirements:
Your medical expenses exceed $4,000.
They suffered an injury that is disfiguring, disabling or will leave them with a permanent injury.
Their damages exceed the personal injury protection (PIP) benefits of their insurance policy.
Dog bites- Minnesota has strict liability rules when it comes to animal attacks and dog bites, which means that the animal’s owner is liable for any injuries caused by their pet whether they have a history of aggressive behavior. If you were trespassing when you were injured or did not have permission to be on someone’s property, you might encounter issues with liability.
Claims against the government- If your injury is the result of negligence on behalf of an on-duty government employee, you have a limited time to begin the claims process. A complaint against a Minnesota state employee needs to be submitted within 180 days of the date of your accident. It should also be noted that personal injury suits against government entities are challenging and complex, so you need to get legal advice.
