[00:00:02.640] I've handled more cases than I can remember when involving pedestrians [00:00:08.240] who have been hit by cars and bicyclist who have been hit by cars or trucks. [00:00:13.280] Generally, most people don't realize that when they get hit by a car, [00:00:16.400] the car's insurance company has to provide them with benefits [00:00:20.560] for medical expenses and lost wages. [00:00:23.080] Also, New York has very strict laws, [00:00:24.880] so we're able to get people a good recovery on these cases. [00:00:28.320] A lot of these cases, we actually just went on motions [00:00:30.520] because in New York, the pedestrian has a right of way. [00:00:33.320] If you're involved in a motor vehicle accident, [00:00:36.400] you need to get a lawyer right away. [00:00:38.160] You only have 30 days to file a no-fault application for benefits, [00:00:42.080] which includes medical benefits and lost wages. [00:00:44.680] If you don't file this application within 30 days, [00:00:48.400] you're going to be not able to get medical treatment that you need. [00:00:51.520] Also, if you try going through your own health insurance, [00:00:54.440] they're going to ultimately deny it because it was a car accident [00:00:56.600] and they should have went through no-fault, [00:00:58.560] and you're going to get stuck with medical bills for your treatment. [00:01:01.560] It's important to have a lawyer on your side [00:01:03.320] because New York laws are a labyrinth of laws which no one can understand [00:01:09.160] except for someone who does this every day. [00:01:11.400] For a motor vehicle accident, [00:01:12.920] you want to hire the Law Office of Michael H. Joseph PLLC [00:01:15.760] because we have over 20 years of experience in handling these cases. [00:01:19.640] We know the ins, we know the outs.
