Leif Olson, Car Insurance Writer
An at-fault accident in North Dakota is a car accident caused by a negligent or careless driver. Even though North Dakota is a no-fault state, fault is still determined for property damage (while personal injury claims are filed with each driver’s own insurance company, regardless of who is responsible).
Every no-fault state has different minimum coverage requirements. In North Dakota, you are legally required to have at least $25,000 of personal injury protection for your own injuries, as well as $25,000 in property damage insurance.
How North Dakota Determines Negligence
States assign fault based on slightly different definitions of negligence. North Dakota uses modified comparative negligence, meaning that drivers do not recoup accident-related costs if they are more than 50% at fault for an accident.
For example, if you are 52% responsible for an accident, you would not receive any payment because you would be over the 50% threshold.
