Car accidents are frighteningly commonplace. Although most of these crashes are small fender-benders, many others cause serious damage and severe, life-threatening injuries. In a Minnesota car accident injury claim, a person has the right to pursue compensation for his or her injuries and property damage, referred to as "damages."
Damages sought after an accident can come in many forms. One of the most common is compensation for medical expenses that occur as a result of the accident. These can include things such as consultations and treatment from health care professionals after the crash, physical or cognitive therapy, hospital and ambulance fees and in-home services that could be required for ongoing treatment.
