MINNEAPOLIS NO FAULT INJURY LAWYERS want you to know about your rights to receive No Fault Insurance Benefits even before you make a claim against the at-fault driver. The Minnesota No Fault Insurance Act, passed by the Minnesota legislature in 1974, has required all owners of all motor vehicles in the State of Minnesota to carry automobile insurance. Minimum coverage is mandated by the Act.
Auto Insurance Required on All Vehicles.
All vehicles are required to carry insurance coverage for liability insurance, uninsured motorist coverage, underinsured motorist coverage, and No Fault insurance.
No Fault Insurance Covers Medical Expenses, Wage Losses, and Replacement Services.
The No Fault Insurance coverage requirement is a minimum of $20,000.00 for medical and health care related expenses.

Minnesota No Fault coverage also includes coverage for “Primary Homemaker Replacement Services”, including those which have been paid for “out of pocket” and those that have not been paid for.
