Minnesota No-Fault Arbitration

In 1975, the AAA and the Minnesota Supreme Court collaborated to introduce a rules-based approach to the administration of Minnesota Personal Injury Protection (PIP or No-Fault) disputes. Since then, the AAA has administered many thousands of cases in accordance with the Minnesota Rules of No-Fault Insurance Arbitration Procedures.

Every four years, the AAA participates in a competitive bid process to serve as administrator for the Minnesota No-Fault Arbitration Caseload and has been reappointed each year. The Policy Statement of the Minnesota No-Fault Standing Committee details policies and procedures that the AAA will use to administer cases.
