Damages Recovery for Texting/Distracted Driving Accidents
Although every case is different, there are often at least three primary sources of recovery for injuries suffered in car accidents. These sources include:
- No-fault insurance
- Liability insurance covering the person(s) who caused the accident
- Underinsured motorist coverage
Although Minnesota is a no-fault insurance state, negligent drivers who cause accidents resulting in serious injuries can still be pursued for compensation to cover medical expenses, treatment, and recovery. Texting drivers are legally liable for damages they cause in an accident, and it is important to have experienced representation by your side to ensure proper compensation is received.
