FAQ'S ABOUT INSURANCE
The financial costs associated with auto accidents are often filed via insurance claims. In Minnesota, car accident victims can file a claim against the personal injury protection in their own car insurance policies, no matter who was at fault for the accident.
However, as each car accident is unique, we recommend contacting RH at our Inver Grove Heights location in the Twin Cities to discuss your specific collision and determine what injuries you may have.

Unlike some other states, Minnesota does not place any caps on personal injury compensation.
If the other driver does not have insurance, or does not have enough to cover your damages, you may be able to pursue compensation from the uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage in your own insurance policy.
However, these kinds of claims can be complicated as there are certain requirements that must be met. Our licensed Minneapolis car accident attorneys can explain these requirements during a free consultation.

There are many benefits to having our attorneys represent your car accident injury claim, and we often recommend have an attorney help with any legal questions that you may have.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) applies to the following kinds of damages from a car accident:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Replacement services (this could include the cost to hire a housekeeper because the victim cannot do chores around the house)
- And more
Minnesota requires all drivers to purchase a minimum amount of PIP coverage: $40,000 per person, per accident, which includes $20,000 for medical bills and another $20,000 for lost wages and replacement services.
If you are unsure and have any questions, we welcome an opportunity to help you. Call (651) 756-7941.
After an accident, car insurance companies like to contact victims in an effort to settle the claim for the lowest possible financial amount.
It's important to note that the insurance company may use any information &/or statements that you provide to discredit your claim. If you are unable to prove that they are incorrect, the amount of compensation that may be available may be significantly reduced.
Having a qualified attorney to deal with the insurance companies on your behalf can help to ensure that your interests are protected. If the insurance provider asks for a recorded statement, you are not legally required to provide one.
We would recommend you have a knowledgeable auto accident attorney advise you on when to provide a recorded statement and what to include in it to protect your claim.
Victims of car accidents can suffer severe injuries that may never fully heal, while expenses from medical procedures and therapy can create a significant burden for victims and their families. At RH Health & Injury Specialists, Dr. Hetland as a car accident chiropractor has successful experience with evaluation and treating hundreds of auto accident cases.

Tips to Support YOUR CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM

He has 12 years of experience and history working with hundreds of car accident victims and works directly with the best car accident attorneys, neurologists and surgeons in the Twin Cities.
REPORT THE ACCIDENT:
Report the accident to the police by calling 9-1-1. Once the police arrive at the scene, they can assess the scene and file a report that may be a very important piece of evidence in your injury claim.
While it is a good idea to report the accident, in some situations it is against the law not to do so. Under state law, every driver involved in a crash that causes injury, death or $1,000 or more in property damage must file a crash report with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety within 10 days of the accident. If you are required to file a report and you do not, you could have your license suspended.
If you are physically able to do so, try to take pictures of the scene. This includes pictures of the vehicles involved, debris, damage to the road, skid marks, and anything else you think may be relevant. Take pictures of any of your visible injuries as well. This may help link your injuries to the accident.
TALK TO WITNESSES:
If there are any witnesses, ask them what happened. You can either write down what they say or ask their permission to record their comments. Make sure to ask them for contact information so your attorney can contact them in the future.
GET EVALUATED AND TREATED:
It is important to have a proper evaluation and treatment for your injuries after a car accident. The sooner the better for you and your claim with your insurance coverage. It is recommended that you always seek chiropractic treatment after a car accident. You may have injuries you are not aware of.
It is also important to have chiropractic documentation of the injuries you suffered in the accident. Linking your injuries to the accident is an important part of the legal process. Make sure you tell Dr. Hetland how you were injured and describe any symptoms you are experiencing.
