Documentation For Your No-Fault Insurance Claim Reflective Red Triangle to point out Car Accident

A strong No-Fault insurance claim will have supporting evidence to prove that your request is both legitimate and necessary. It is, after all, only claiming that you have a right to compensation, and the job of the insurance adjuster is to ensure that an individual is not attempting to con them out of money. Because of this, every insurance claim requires specific documentation relating to the accident. This includes photographs of the damage done to the individuals and their vehicles, reports of the accident, and supporting medical records.

In New York State, you are required to submit an MV-104 Form to your local Department of Motor Vehicles. This form contains information on the vehicles and individuals involved in the accident, the damage done to those vehicles, and any personal injuries sustained. It constitutes a record of the accident that insurance companies can review to help them determine the appropriate amount of compensation. In addition to the MV-104 Form, a copy of the Police Accident Report can be requested from the Department of Motor Vehicles or the appropriate Police Station and submitted to the insurance company.

If you are filing a No-Fault claim, you will need to submit a No-Fault Benefits Form (NF-2). The NF-2 Form is an official request for compensation following an accident. If your No-Fault insurance claim is denied, you have the option of disputing that decision. However, the burden of proving your case will fall on you, and that can be overwhelming, particularly when recovering from personal injuries sustained in an accident. In these situations, the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. strongly recommends seeking the assistance of a professional personal injury attorney to fight the battle for you. We will help you build an iron-clad case to ensure that you receive the highest possible compensation.



If Your No-Fault Claim is Denied

There are several reasons why a No-Fault insurance claim might be denied. The paperwork can be confusing, particularly for individuals who, ideally, have not needed to file a claim before, and as a result, it is easy to make errors on forms. These simple mistakes are just some of the reasons a claim might be denied:

  1. The Claim Was Submitted Past the Deadline: The deadline for submitting a claim varies from state to state. A claim must be submitted before the deadline in order to be valid.
  2. The Paperwork Was Incomplete or Incorrect: As mentioned above, it is easy to make mistakes on insurance claim forms. The questions can be unclear, or the individuals might not know where to find the information requested. In these situations, the expert legal advice of a personal injury attorney is invaluable.
  3. Unspecified Medical Codes: On every doctor’s report, there is what is known as an ICD, an “International Classification of Disease.” These are unique codes that classify diseases and medical conditions. An Unspecified Code is used when a doctor lacks sufficient data to determine an individual’s exact medical condition. When an insurance adjuster sees an unspecified code on a medical report, they might assume that the medical condition is not serious enough to warrant compensation.

If your No-Fault insurance claim is denied, you have the option of disputing the insurance adjuster’s decision. Similarly, if your No-Fault insurance claim is not denied, but the amount offered is less than you feel you deserve, you have the option of disputing that decision. In both of these scenarios, the importance of finding the best legal representation cannot be understated. At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C., we know the calamitous effects of personal injury.
