What You Should Know about No-Fault for Bronx Car Accidents
What is No-Fault? If you are injured in a Bronx car accident, you are entitled to No-Fault benefits which will pay for your medical treatment, drugs, medical appliances, other medical expenses, household help and lost wages. The minimum coverage required under New York law is $50,000, but there may be more.
How to file an application for no-fault benefits: A claim for no-fault benefits must be filed within 30 days of your accident! No-Fault benefits are usually paid by the car insurance company for the car you were in at the time of the accident. If you were a pedestrian struck by a car in the Bronx, No-Fault benefits will be paid by the insurance company for the car that hit you. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine which insurance company is the No-Fault insurance company or whether your benefits will be paid by worker’s compensation. Be sure to tell me if you are working at the time of your accident because your medical bills may be covered by workers compensation instead of no-fault if you were working at the time of your car accident.
