New York Car Accidents- Who Pays The Medical Bills
If you were injured in a New York car accident, you need to speak with a New York Car Accident Lawyer. Under New York’s no fault laws, the insurance company for the car which you were in has to provide you with “No Fault Benefits”.
If you were a pedestrian and you were hit by a car. The car that hit you is obligated to provide you with no fault benefits.
No fault benefits mean that because you were injured in a car accident, the insurance company for the vehicle you were in or hit by (pedestrian), must pay your medical bills and your lost wages. This includes transportation costs to get to the doctor.
To get the benefits you are entitled to after a New York car accident, you need to file a no fault application within 30 days of the accident. If you do not send in this application within the 30 days, you may loose the benefits. Our New York auto accident lawyers provide these applications at no charge as a courtesy for all of our clients.
