Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident in New York, in most cases, your own car insurance company will cover your medical bills, regardless of whether you were at fault for that accident. Medical bills for passengers are covered by the vehicle in which they were a passenger, and medical bills for pedestrians are covered by the vehicle that hit them. Under New York State law, a victim of a motor vehicle accident has only thirty (30) days to file a claim for this type of coverage, called No Fault Insurance. Even if you collect for your medical bills under the No Fault Insurance section of your policy, you may still have a cause of action against the car you had the accident with to recover money above the No Fault coverage. At Worby Groner Edelman LLP, we have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. If you or a family member have been involved in a motor vehicle accident of any type, call us for a free consultation. Remember, there is no fee to you unless we recover money on your behalf.
