New York State Has No-Fault Car Insurance

Car InsuranceIn the State of New York, if you have been injured in an auto accident, your options to pursue monetary compensation may be limited. Victims of car crashes are required to file no-fault claims with their own car insurance policies to obtain compensation for economic damages, such as lost wages and hospital bills, irrespective of who is at fault for the accident. Nevertheless, many car accident victims require additional compensation above their policy limits. If you have suffered a serious injury or your damages are over $50,000, you can file a lawsuit against the other driver for further compensation. As defined in Article 51 of the New York State Insurance Law, a “serious Injury” consists of the following:

  1. Death;
  2. Loss of an unborn baby;
  3. Dismemberment;
  4. Severe disfigurement;
  5. Fractured or broken bones;
  6. Permanent loss of a body organ, function, member, or system;
  7. Permanent consequential limitation of the use of a body organ or member;
  8. A significant limitation of use of a body function or system; or

Important Factors for Determining the Value of Your Case

Most car crash cases tend to evolve as time passes. Numerous factors that help determine the value of your claim need to be investigated. Conducting a proper investigation takes both time and proficiency. Although you might be able to describe how the accident happened, that does not mean the collision was, in fact, straightforward. Some of the key factors that will help us determine your case’s value include:

  1. How the accident occurred: This can be especially complicated when several motorists are involved, but not all are truthful about what happened. There might be big discrepancies between motorists’ statements and what is ultimately written in the police report. The other driver’s actions and fault in causing the accident can greatly affect the value of your claim. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s battle-tested team knows what is necessary to demonstrate liability and build a strong case.
  2. Strength of the evidence: To have the best chances of receiving the highest possible compensation, it is crucial to be able to prove that the accident was the other driver’s fault. That is why it is important to gather as much evidence as possible. Also, be sure to seek immediate medical treatment. You should be able to validate that any harm suffered was attributable to the car accident and confirm the scope of your injuries.
  3. Insurance policy coverage: Determining what policy coverages are available and how payments will be carried out are both significant. All drivers in New York are required by law to maintain minimum car insurance coverage. Even if the driver was uninsured at the time of the crash, you might file a claim with your uninsured motorist coverage for costs exceeding policy limits.
  4. The severity of injuries and damages involved: Were you seriously injured? Are your injuries permanent? While some injuries are apparent, others, such as internal injuries, could be undistinguishable and cause serious complications over time. An in-depth medical examination can help provide a better understanding of the outlook and estimated treatment expenses.



Monetary Compensation for Car Accident Victims

Accurately calculating damages in any personal liability lawsuit can be an extraordinary intricate undertaking. The anticipated value of your claim involves ascertaining the types and scope of all your injuries. Generally, when more serious injuries are suffered higher compensation, amounts are obtained. Various other elements can significantly influence the amount of compensation you will receive, such as your overall health before the accident, age, occupation, the type of injuries, necessary future treatments, the expected duration of your rehabilitation. Victims may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for the following:

  1. All past, present, and future medical costs and rehabilitation expenses resulting from your accident;
  2. All lost wages from missed work;
  3. Reduced future earning capacity;
  4. Pain and suffering caused by your injuries, as well as treatment and recovery;
  5. Loss of consortium;
  6. Loss of enjoyment in life;
  7. Car and other property damage; and
  8. Any other unforeseen damages associated with the accident.
