What is PIP and how does it work in Minnesota?
I want to get new car insurance after getting into an accident. I don't really understand how personal injury protection works. Do I need to add it to my new policy?
“In Minnesota, personal injury protection (PIP) is part of the minimum car insurance required to legally drive in the state.
You are required to have at least $40,000 in coverage. This would cover $20,000 for medical costs and $20,000 for non-medical costs, like lost wages per accident.
Since Minnesota is a no-fault state, PIP would cover medical expenses for you or passengers if you get into an accident and are injured, no matter what. Your bodily injury liability would cover another person’s injuries should you be found at fault. “

"Is it okay to lie to a car insurance agent to get a better rate? "
There are certain discounts that my insurance company offers that would qualify me for a lower rate. Most seem unverifiable to me. Are they really going to dig into the information that I give them, or is it okay to tell lies concerning marital status and the names and ages of the people that live with me?
