Dealing With The Adjuster: Drinking Involved

Comments Off

Minnesota is a no-fault automobile state. This means that when you are in a collision there are basic benefits of medical bills, wage loss, medical mileage, and replacement services that will be covered by your own car insurance policy. The no-fault benefits go back to a deal from the 1970s where insurance companies got tort thresholds (items proving a severe enough injury to bring a personal injury claim) in return for guaranteeing that they would provide no-fault coverage. Using your no-fault benefits does not raise your insurance rates and should be a relatively easy and fast system.

This month we are looking at some of the many ways we have seen people get denied the benefits they should have and paid for.

"There was drinking involved." It is funny to hear adjusters that I know minimized talk about drinking of a defendant, who sound like prohibitionists when a plaintiff has been drinking. Sure it can be an issue, but don’t let an adjuster bluff you.If you are in a motor vehicle collision in Minnesota, you need to notify your insurance agent in order to start the no-fault process. If you have questions, you should talk to an attorney who is experienced in handling these types of injuries.
