Rochester, New York, Car Accident Lawyers: What Is an NF-6 Form?

We Know How to Aggressively Advocate for Our Clients and Ascertain Justice. Founded by a Recognized Super Lawyer, Jed Dietrich, Esq., We Are Committed to Providing Unparalleled Personal Injury Service to Anyone Who Was Injured in a Rochester, New York, Automobile Accident.

Rochester Car AccidentsIf you, or a loved one, have been injured in a Rochester automobile accident, you could be entitled to significant compensation through an insurance settlement or personal injury lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident and injuries, you could receive recompense for your hospital bills, anticipated care, and income losses.

Since New York is a no-fault state, you may be eligible to receive benefits through your own insurance company. However, the insurance company will verify your income before offering a settlement. If you suffered work-related losses, including lost income, the adjuster might send an Employer’s Wage Verification Form (NF-6) to your workplace. This form helps the adjuster calculate the value of a lost income claim.

Since 2005, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. has exclusively handled serious personal injury claims. We know what insurance companies need to see before paying out a fair settlement. If the adjuster is unwilling to negotiate in good faith, we could fight for your rights in court. Please send us a message online or call us at (585) 939-3939 to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation as soon as possible.

Filing Form NF-6 After a Rochester Car Crash

Before you can submit a claim for lost income, you must complete and submit an Application for Motor Vehicle No-Fault Benefits (NF-2). Form NF-2 consists of 22 sections, which provide your insurer and the state with critical information about the nature of your accident and the extent of your injuries. While your insurance company should provide you with a copy of Form NF-2, you can download the application from the New York State Department of Financial Services’ website. Sections 17 through 20 allow you to input information about any time you lose from work.

However, simply submitting Form NF-2 will not allow you to receive recompense for lost income. After you return the Application for Motor Vehicle No-Fault Benefits to your insurer, your adjuster will send the Employer’s Wage Verification Form (NF-6) to your workplace. Form NF-6 asks your employer questions regarding your:

  1. Occupation;
  2. Gross earnings or salary for the 52 weeks preceding the accident;
  3. Your dates of employment; and
  4. Any employer-sponsored or government benefits you received in relation to the accident.

You should not ordinarily have to send, complete, or return New York State Form NF-6. Once your employer has received the form, they must fill it out and submit it to the insurance company within 90 days. However, receipt of Form NF-6 does not oblige the insurance company to disburse benefits. If they believe that your claim is questionable or that your injuries had other causes besides the automobile accident, they could attempt to devalue or deny your claim.

Our highly experienced team of attorneys could help ensure that your paperwork is properly filled out, completed, and filed. If an employer, adjuster, or other party contests your eligibility for benefits, we could construct a compelling, evidence-based case for recompense. Please call us at (585) 939-3939 to discuss your potential legal options for relief as soon as possible.



How to Maximize Your Automobile Accident Insurance Benefits

Negotiating an insurance settlement by yourself is not an easy task. Even if you follow state law and the insurance company’s claim procedures, you may not receive a fair offer. Although the adjuster may be sympathetic to your injuries, the insurer is still a for-profit enterprise, and it does not make money by offering car crash victims the maximum amount of compensation.

The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. could bolster your chances of receiving a fair settlement by:

  1. Investigating the causes of your accident;
  2. Subpoenaing surveillance camera footage and other relevant evidence;
  3. Interviewing eyewitnesses;
  4. Consulting experts to assess the overall value of your medical and non-medical injuries; and
  5. Fighting for your rights, whether in insurance negotiations or in front of a judge and a jury.

You could be entitled to relief for:

  1. Lost income from work;
  2. The value of any paid sick days or holiday leave you had to use;
  3. Diminished earning potential;
  4. Your past, present, and anticipated medical expenses;
  5. Physical rehabilitation;
  6. Prescription medication co-pays;
  7. Emotional pain and suffering;
  8. Loss of enjoyment;
  9. Disfigurement; and
  10. Disability.

The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. could help you secure the compensation you need to begin moving past a serious Rochester car crash. However, you must act fast: New York State has strict filing deadlines for insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits. If you wait too long to take action, you could lose your chance to obtain legal relief. Do not lose your opportunity to obtain justice. Please call the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. at (585) 939-3939 today.
