NYC Car Accident Medical Bills
New York is a no-fault insurance state. This means that if you are injured in a car accident, you will be able to recover compensation for medical bills and lost wages even if the other driver had no insurance or you, yourself, were partially responsible for the accident. Uninsured/underinsured motorists coverage acts like a liability policy from your own insurance company to help pay for your damages when you are hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver.
After an accident, to get full compensation for your car accident medical bills, it helps your case if you visit a clinic or hospital that accepts no-fault insurance, or a facility that will bill the carrier directly on your behalf. In addition, you need to make sure that the medical facility documents your injuries for your attorneys and confirm that your doctor and other medical personnel will testify in court if necessary.
