No-Fault Insurance Coverage Following a Collision in Oyster Bay
New York requires drivers to carry no-fault car insurance coverage, which pays out regardless of what led to a collision or who caused it. According to the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS), no-fault auto policies cover basic losses, including:
- Medical bills up to the policy limit
- A portion of your lost wages up to the policy limit
- Incidentals related to your care, such as mileage to the doctor’s office
While this type of coverage provides an easy way to ensure you can recover a payout following a relatively minor or moderate collision, there are many damages victims suffer that are not compensated by these policies. Additionally, it is important to note that most motorcycle policies do not afford no-fault coverage. In order to recover for pain and suffering, and damages not covered by no-fault, a claim against the at-fault parties must be pursued.
Pursuing a Third-Party Liability Car Crash Case in Oyster Bay
A member of our team at Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. can determine if you can pursue a case against the at-fault parties.
If you can pursue a fault-based case, there are two ways your attorney may be able to recover compensation for the damages you suffered. These two ways include:
- Reaching an agreement for a fair settlement with the at-fault party’s liability insurance provider; or
- Taking the case to trial, presenting strong evidence, and receiving a verdict and award.
Most cases settle before going to trial, but sometimes a trial is necessary. In either type of situation, you may be able to recover compensation for the current and future damages you suffered and will likely suffer because of your crash. This recovery could include:
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other non-economic, intangible losses
- Medical care and related expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning ability
- Incidentals and miscellaneous related expenses
- Other economic losses and expenses
- Wrongful death damages, in cases when the victim passed away
