New York “No-Fault Law”
The New York No-Fault Law was passed to ensure that anyone injured in an auto accident in New York would receive financial compensation—up to $50,000—for their medical care, lost wages and hospital bills. This compensation is paid for by the claimant’s insurance company—no matter who is at fault for the accident.
In order to be eligible for compensation under the No-Fault Law, you must submit an application (NF-2) within 30 days of the accident.
Since you have very littletime after an auto accident to submit an insurance claim for No-Fault coverage, you should contact a skillful attorney. At the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates, we help you fill out and file your claim before the required deadline so that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Personal Injury Claims under the No-Fault Law
Under the No-Fault Law, you are unable to sue another driver unless you sustained “serious injury.” Since the definition of serious injury depends on a number of factors, you should contact our experienced New York litigators as soon as possible after your accident to determine if your personal injury claim is meritorious (i.e., has merit).
