Who Is Responsible In A New York Car Accident?
Drivers and passengers injured as a result of a car accident in New York may not realize that the state uses a no-fault approach to car insurance claims. Under this system, those who suffer injuries must use their own Personal Injury Protection coverage to take care of their medical bills, doctor’s appointment transportation costs, and even lost wages. It doesn’t matter who was technically responsible for causing the accident. Further claims against the negligent party are possible under certain circumstances.
