For individuals who are injured in a car accident, medical expenses and any lost wages are paid by the “no-fault” carrier, which is typically the insurance carrier for the vehicle you were driving or riding in. Although this system was intended to make the process easier for policyholders, this has not been true for many victims. There are often strict filing deadlines and many other roadblocks that insurance carriers put up in order to avoid their legal obligation. If you need help resolving a no-fault insurance claim, Campbell & Associates are prepared to help.
Since no-fault claims do not provide for pain and suffering damages, you may be able to file for additional benefits under “bodily injury” claim. That claim is made against the insurance carrier (or carriers) of any negligent drivers. It requires proof of a “serious injury” (As defined by New York State Insurance Law). Many times, we will not know for many months if your injuries will qualify. In the meantime, we can inform you of your rights and advise you on the course of action that is right for your unique situation.
