Car accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases. When a car accident occurs it’s usually because one of the drivers wasn’t following the rules of the road, or wasn’t paying proper attention. The irresponsible driver can often be held financially responsible for the injuries they have caused. New York is a No Fault Insurance state, meaning that your insurance company will pay for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses related to your injuries regardless of who was at fault. A claim can only be brought against the driver who caused the accident if there were certain types of “serious injuries” as defined by New York Law. It is important to speak to an attorney to determine your rights against the other driver as well as possible claims under your own insurance policy.
