Protect Your Rights After A Motor Vehicle Accident

Motor vehicle accidents can include cars, motorcycles, trucks, vans, buses, ATVs and other vehicles. No matter how attentive you are on the road, other drivers create dangerous situations resulting in serious injury or death. Your health or the health of a loved one may be permanently compromised. If you are injured in a car accident, the lawyers at Anderson, Moschetti & Taffany, PLLC, know the specific steps that must be taken to protect your rights.

What Are No-Fault Benefits?

All people injured as a result of the use or operation of a motor vehicle (even pedestrians and bicyclists), are entitled to receive no-fault benefits for accident-related losses, regardless of fault. Motorcycles, mopeds and ATVs are excluded. No-fault benefits include medical bills, lost earnings, travel expenses, household care, death benefits and prescriptions.

No-fault benefits are provided by the insurance company insuring the vehicle you were in (or in the case of a pedestrian or bicycle accident, the vehicle that struck you). The insurance company insuring the vehicle you were in is responsible for paying all properly submitted claims resulting from the accident.

The insurance company providing no-fault benefits does not provide compensation for pain and suffering. The attorneys at Anderson, Moschetti and Taffany, PLLC, will analyze your injuries caused by a car or other motor vehicle to determine if you have a claim for pain and suffering.

The most important thing for you to know about obtaining no-fault benefits is that the application must be filed with the appropriate insurance company no later than 30 days from the date of the accident. The application process will be one of the first matters we will discuss with you. The second most important thing for you to know is that we are here to answer all of your questions and ensure sure that your rights under New York state law are protected.
