At the Law Office of Steven Shulman, we give you the honest counsel that you need to make smart decisions about your accident and your future. You can depend on our founding attorney, Steven Shulman, to offer a frank assessment of your options and to fight to achieve a favorable outcome.
How No-Fault Insurance May Affect Your Claim
As a cyclist or pedestrian, when you are hit by a motor vehicle, New York’s No-Fault laws require that your medical expenses will be covered by the at-fault driver’s insurance. There is a limit to the amount that you are entitled to receive, however.
No-fault coverage may not adequately compensate you for your injuries. If your bills for your medical care exceed the limit the state allocates for damages, you could be responsible for hospital care, lost wages and other costs. No-fault coverage doesn’t extend to noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering, which may have a significant impact on the quality of your life after your accident.
Tirelessly Advocating For Full Compensation
We know that insurance companies do not make it easy to receive the full compensation that you deserve. We use our substantial understanding of personal injury statutes to hold negligent individuals responsible. If an insurance company refuses to pay you the full settlement that you are due, we will work tirelessly to get a fair result.
As your advocate, we will not stop until we resolve your personal injury concern. You should expect nothing less after you have suffered a serious injury.
