If you have been injured after a car accident, it is very important to see a doctor immediately to document your injuries in a medical record.

In Minnesota, automobile injury claims are unique.
There are two types of claims that can be brought for automobile accidents in Minnesota:
1. A No-fault Claim The no-fault provision of your insurance policy will cover medical expenses, wage loss, replacement services and other benefits up to the policy limits.
To file a no-fault claim, call your insurer promptly to report the accident. Your insurance company will send you an "Application for Benefits" form to get the claims process started. In order to be compensated, you can expect to submit copies of your bills, medical records, doctors' disability statements and wage loss verification from your employer.
2. A Liability Claim This claim is made when another person is at fault for the collision. If this is what happened to you, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries from the person at fault and their insurance company.
