No Fault Insurance in New York
In a car or truck accident, the insurance company covering the vehicle you are driving or riding in covers your medical care and lost wages, regardless of who is at fault. As a pedestrian, the company insuring the vehicle that hit you is responsible for your medical bills and lost wages — even if your actions are partly to blame for the motor vehicle vs. pedestrian accident. Motorcycle accidents, however, involve a unique set of rules.
Uninsured Drivers · Hit-and-Run · Underinsured Drivers
When the person responsible for the accident has no insurance or inadequate coverage, you may be entitled to Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage available under your auto insurance policy. Uninsured Motorist Coverage may also be utilized in a hit-and-run accident. You may also consider a New York State program called the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Law.
Insurance and liability concerns can complicate any motor vehicle accident case. Whatever the circumstances in an auto accident, we are ready to help you. Attorney Norman M. Block has the experience, knowledge, and dedication to help you obtain the rightful compensation you are entitled.
