A Maple Grove, Minnesota woman recently received a personal injury award of $473,000 for injuries sustained in a single car collision. She was injured while riding as a passenger in a car that crashed when the driver fell asleep. The crash occurred in St. Paul.
The woman was represented by personal injury attorney Douglas Schmidt of the Schmidt Salita Law Team. Schmidt presented evidence that the Maple Grove injury victim was riding with a relative on a return trip from Chicago. During that trip, she had repeatedly warned the driver that he appeared to be nodding off, falling asleep. She asked him to pull off. He refused. The collision occurred when he finally fell asleep and the car left the roadway and crashed into a barrier in St. Paul.
CAR ACCIDENTS A MAJOR CAUSE OF INJURY AND WRONGFUL DEATH.
Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in Minnesota as well as the rest of the nation. Over 30,000 people are killed every year in car accidents and other motor vehicle collisions, including motorcycle collisions, collisions with big commercial trucks, and car-pedestrian accidents. The National Highway Traffic Administration estimates that a US citizen is seriously injured or killed every 14 seconds.
MINNESOTA IS A NO FAULT INSURANCE STATE.
MAPLE GROVE MN CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS want you to know that Minnesota is a No Fault State. That means that the victims of injury from car accidents must first look to their own No Fault Insurance for payments of medical bills and some of their wage losses.
After their No Fault insurance company has paid its policy limits, the injury victims must then seek payment of medical bills from their own insurance.
MINNESOTA IS ALSO AN AT FAULT INSURANCE STATE.
Pursuant to Minnesota Law, after pursuing No Fault insurance benefits, the victims of personal injury in motor vehicle collisions must then direct their attention to the liability insurance of the ‘at fault” driver.
If the at fault driver’s insurance coverage is not large enough to fully compensate the full value of the case, additional recovery can be pursued against the Underinsured Motorist (UIM) Coverage.
