Know Your Options After A Car Accident

It is an unfortunate reality that in a highly populated state like New York there will be thousands of car accidents each year. And, even more unfortunate is the reality that many of these car accidents lead to injuries, ranging from minor to severe, with some leading to fatalities. Anyone who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident in New York needs to know the available options and the basics about a potential personal injury lawsuit.

For starters, anyone considering a personal injury lawsuit should be familiar with the concept of “negligence.” In essence, when a party is negligent, it means that party did not conform to expected behavior. For example, all drivers on the roads in New York are expected to operate motor vehicles in a reasonable manner, conforming to the required driving laws. Any deviations from this expectation could be considered negligence, possibly resulting in a car accident.

But, there are also drivers who cause accidents by being “reckless,” which is a step above negligence. A reckless driver may knowingly speed way beyond the posted speed limit, swerve in and out of traffic or even drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

When it comes to car accidents in New York, injured victims may face weeks, months or even years of necessary medical treatment and physical therapy in an effort to “get their lives back.” Those efforts, of course, can cost thousands of dollars. A personal injury lawsuit may help a victim recover much needed financial compensation.

What Are No-Fault Benefits?

Anyone hurt because of someone else’s driving (even cyclists and people on foot) are entitled to benefits for their loss. Motorcycles, mopeds and ATVs are excluded from this. No-fault benefits can include hospital costs, lost wages, household care, and prescriptions.

No-fault payments are covered via the company that insured the car you were in (or if you were on foot or bicycle, the one that hit 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.
