New York No Fault Insurance For Auto Accident Victims
If you have been involved in an automobile accident in the State of New York, it is not your private health insurance that provides medical insurance for treatment for injuries sustained in the accident. Rather, under New York State’s Insurance Law Section 5102, the auto insurer that insures the vehicle that you were in during the crash, regardless of who was at fault, must pay your medical bills.
Further, the No Fault Insurance Law Statute § 5102 as well as New York Insurance Regulation 68, sets out under 11 NYCRR 65-1.1 the claim and application procedure. Most notably is the fact that a person who has been involved in an automobile accident has only 30 days to submit the written application to the proper auto insurer.
New York’s proscribed No Fault Insurance Application Form, form NF-2, is detailed and complex. This is why if you have been involved in an automobile accident and sustained personal injuries you should immediately contact the law firm of Palumbo & Kosofsky. Attorneys Michael J. Palumbo and Mark Kosofsky will make the appropriate No Fault application on your behalf at no cost so you do not lose out on valuable medical benefits. Our attorneys will then monitor and track your treatment and legal case, and will make the appropriate follow-up demand to the liable driver when your treatment ends to get you a recovery for your pain and suffering. We never take a fee unless we get you a recovery.
