No-Fault Law in New York
New York is a "no-fault" state, meaning that anyone involved in an auto accident receives up to $50,000 in compensation for medical care, lost wages and hospital bills. The claimant’s insurance company pays for the damage no matter who is at fault for the accident.
You must submit an application (NF-2) within 30 days of the accident in order to submit an insurance claim. To do this in a timely manner, contact our auto accident lawyers to help you fill out and file your claim before the required deadline. You’ll receive the compensation you deserve without the concern of filing the paperwork incorrectly, which could cause you to miss the deadline.
Representation in Car Accident Lawsuits
Under no-fault law, you must have sustained "serious injury" in order to sue another driver. Our auto accident lawyers can determine the true value of your accident. If the damages are above $50,000, it may be worthwhile to sue the other driver to cover all of your expenses.
If your case is successful, you may be entitled to economic and non-economic damages, including medical expenses, hospital bills, property damage, loss of income, loss of future wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related expenses.
