UNDERSTANDING THE NEW YORK STATE NO-FAULT REGULATIONS

New York is a No-Fault state, which means that the negligent or at-fault driver cannot be sued personally, but can only be sued through their insurance. Insurance companies are in the business of settling claims for less value than an injured victim is entitled to. Therefore, having your legal rights represented by an experienced personal injury attorney is detrimental to your case. 

 

Under New York State law, you can apply for No-Fault benefits of up to $50,000 in damages through your auto policy. However, there is a very limited and short time period to recover No-Fault insurance coverage (typically within 30 days). 

 

A victim can bring a personal injury claim against a negligent party if his or her injuries meet New York’s “serious injury” threshold. To meet this threshold, accident victims must satisfy one of the following:

  • Death; 

  • Loss of a fetus; 

  • Significant disfigurement;

  • Bone fracture;

  • Permanent body organ or member disability;

  • Significant body function or system limitations;

  • Full disability for at least 90 days out of 180 days. 

According to New York State Law N.Y. C.P.L.R. § 214(4), the time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit after a car crash is 3 years after the accident. However, this law is subject to exceptions. 

A CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER WILL PROTECT YOUR INTERESTS 

Our car accident lawyers will provide you with the guidance and knowledge you need to make informed decisions to ensure your case isn’t being undervalued.

 

If the insurance company offered you a settlement offer on your case, the chances of the settlement amount being fair for the damages you sustained are slim. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will conduct an in-depth independent review of your case to determine whether you are entitled to additional compensation.  Do not accept any settlement offers without consulting with our attorneys. 

We get it - The last thing on your mind is filing a claim following an accident. This is why Beck Law, P.C., encourages every client to focus on their health and allow us to effectively represent your legal interests. Our experienced New York accident lawyers will file all necessary paperwork timely, document your injuries and aggressively negotiate with insurance companies to get the maximum compensation that you deserve.
