No Fault Car Accident Lawyer NYC
No Fault insurance sounds simple. However, all the distinctions of New York’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policies can be extremely confusing to the uninitiated. At Greenstein & Milbauer, our highly trained personnel understand all aspects of NY’s No Fault car accident laws.
What is it? No-fault is a portion of your automobile insurance policy meant to cover medical expenses and losses immediately following an accident. The term refers to the distribution of funds regardless of liability, meaning you and your vehicle’s passengers may receive reimbursement for specific economic losses even if you were partially at fault for the accident. Referred to as the No-Fault Law and the Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance Reparations Act, Article 51 of New York’s Insurance Law can help you get short-term medical care and a portion of lost wages.
However, there are drawbacks you should understand, and our knowledgeable attorneys can help you comprehend both the positive and negative aspects of these laws. For one, the no-fault law restricts your ability to file an auto accident lawsuit unless your economic losses exceed $50,000, or your injury is determined to be “serious.” In addition, the fund doesn’t cover auto body repair for any of the vehicles involved in the accident.
