Protecting Your Rights to Fair Compensation
In theory, New York’s no-fault insurance law makes it easier for people who have been in auto accidents to get medical and lost-wage benefits. But if your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, the law may make it harder for you to get the compensation you deserve.
At the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C., our Albany auto accident attorneys are dedicated to getting fair money damages for clients who have been seriously injured. We have the experience and resources to take on the insurance companies and counter their strategies.
Understanding the Limits on New York Auto Accident Claims
Under New York’s no-fault insurance law, your own insurance company is usually responsible for paying your necessary medical expenses and partially compensating you for your lost wages after a motor vehicle accident, no matter who was at fault for the accident.
The flip side of this law is that it limits your ability to sue the other driver or another negligent party unless you can prove that you have suffered a “serious” injury.
The definition of a “serious” injury can be vague, and the courts have a history of applying the law differently from county to county. That is why it is important that you hire a lawyer with the experience to carefully and accurately document the extent of your injuries.
