What Claim Do I Have After a Collision? : School Bus and Semi

Comments Off

This month, we will be looking at the issue of what claims are available in a Minnesota collision. We have used real examples from stories in the recent news as a basis for the discussion. What claims are available is not always obvious and a very good reason why you should take advantage of meeting with an experienced personal injury lawyer to understand all of your coverages. The insurance company may seem to be treating you correctly, but they don't represent you. They also are not lawyers, so don't take your legal advice from them.

A school bus is in a collision with a semi truck in Roseau. Eight children are taken to the hospital for care. For medical coverage, the children will each first look to the coverage they have through their families' insurance policies. The drivers will first look to worker's compensation. If the semi is at fault, the no fault carriers for the children will be able to make a claim for reimbursement for what they have paid. For all of the involved minors, any settlement would have to be approved by a judge.

The stories that are used are just examples. Each case is different and it is important to make sure that you get individual advice for any collision you are involved in. For each of those who were injured in the examples and for the the family and friends of those who were killed, our hope goes out that you are getting the medical and emotional help that you need.

If you, your family, or someone you know is in an accident, it is worth taking the time to sit down and talk to an experienced law firm with success in helping people who are injured through no fault of their own. The consultations are free and it allows you to figure out what rights you have after an injury.
