New York is a No-Fault State. If you are injured in a car accident, no matter who is at fault, you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, transportation costs, household help, and out-of-pocket expenses relative to your injury. Directly after your accident, it’s imperative that you file a No-Fault claim and submit your application within 30 days of your accident in order to receive these benefits.

The No-Fault application can be difficult to fill out properly, especially after a serious injury has uprooted your life. Here’s a brief guide on how to fill out the No-Fault application. If Palermo Law is managing your car accident case, our No-Fault department will handle your No-Fault application meticulously to ensure you obtain all the benefits you are entitled to. However, you only have 30 days from the date of your accident to file your application. In case you are filing your No-Fault application alone, we think it’s important that you understand what you should do in order to ensure you receive the No-Fault benefits you are entitled to.
You are entitled to a degree of compensation for these costs associated with your injury. It’s imperative that you submit this information to your insurance carrier within the above-stated timetables or you may risk denial of coverage. If you retain Palermo Law, P.L.L.C., to manage your car accident case after sustaining an injury, make sure you don’t speak with any insurance adjusters regarding your accident or your injuries. Refer them directly to us. We cannot overstate how important this is. Insurance companies aim to save as much money as possible, and so their adjusters may ask you questions meant to confuse you in order to obtain information that mitigates the severity of your injury. If you have an attorney managing your case, there is no reason at all for you to speak with them.
