No-Fault Insurance Claims in New York

You want to take advantage of all available legal options after a serious auto accident. That is why you must speak to a personal injury attorney promptly after your accident — you have only 30 days to file a no-fault insurance claim with your own insurance company if your notice of the accident was not in writing.

No-fault insurance is an important type of insurance coverage — it will pay your initial medical bills and lost wages. It is available to you, regardless of who was at fault in the accident. My firm will help you file for no-fault benefits if you are entitled.

Lawsuits Related to Auto Accidents

The worst thing that you can do is to accept an unfair settlement before speaking to an experienced personal injury lawyer. You may not fully understand the extent of your injuries and the amount of monetary damages that you may be entitled to receive.

A personal injury lawsuit will allow you to seek monetary damages in addition to what you would receive through your no-fault insurance. You may be able to obtain damages for your pain and suffering, permanent disability and other out-of-pocket expenses.
