Automobile insurance can protect you from financial cost of an accident or an injury. No-fault automobile insurance is governed by state statute and requires the owner of every vehicle licensed in the state of Minnesota to provide insurance.
Who is Covered?
You are covered by the policy in your name. Any relative living in your home that does not have a policy in his or her name is covered by your policy. This includes a spouse, children or minor in your custody. A driver using your car with permission who is not covered by another policy will be covered by your policy.
What are the Types of Coverages?
Personal Injury Protection (PIP): provides basic economic loss benefits. If you are injured in an accident this portion of your policy pays you and members of your household for medical expenses, wage loss and replacement services within statutory limits. These expenses are paid no matter who was at fault in the accident. This is known as “no-fault coverage.”
Liability Coverage Claims to your Policy from Another Driver: This is the portion of your policy that covers damages to another’s vehicle when an accident is your fault.
Underinsured Coverage: provides benefits when the other driver is held responsible for the accident does not have enough liability coverage to cover your claim.
Uninsured Coverage: provides benefits when the other driver is held responsible for the accident but is not covered by insurance.
