Can I Get Help with My Medical Expenses?

What Is No-Fault Car Insurance?
New York is considered a “no-fault” state which means insurance companies are responsible for compensating drivers for the cost of minor injuries, regardless of who is at fault for the car accident. Basically, if you have been injured in car accident, your car insurance should cover minor injuries, even if you aren’t sure who caused the accident.
What Should I do after a Car Accident?
After a car accident, you should usually notify the authorities and get a police report. It is important to document the details of the car accident as much as possible.

While insurance companies and other professionals may entice you with a speedy settlement, don’t become victimized again.
