There were 2.2 Million people injured in auto accidents in, in New York City in 2009 according to the United States Census Bureau. Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyers fight hard for our car accident clients every day. Auto accidents are bus accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, motor cycle accidents, hit and run accidents, and pedestrian accidents.

What make these accidents different are that they are covered under the New York State No Fault Laws. The law states that no matter who’s fault the auto accident is the vehicle that you are in will cover your medical expenses. No Fault insurance will also cover 80% of your lost wages and cover other expenses such things as baby sitting while you go to the No Fault Doctor.

In most cases the No fault benefits are limited to $50,000 for the Personal Injury Protection insurance. You must file your NF-2 Form to your insurance company within 30 days from the date of your accident.

Hit and Run

Hit and Run accidents are different. If you are a pedestrian and are hit by a car that fled the scene you can still have your medical expenses covered by Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC). Cars involved in Hit and Runs can also sue and recover damages from the MVAIC fund.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are not covered under the New York State No Fault Law. Although pedestrians struck by motorcycles are covered.

Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can be covered for no fault. It depends on where the bus is insured and which state does the accident occur. MTA buses are different. They are owned and operated by the City of New York and therefore are self-insured by New York City.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are covered by the New York State No Fault Law. However if you are the driver or passenger in the truck you are covered by New York State Worker’s Compensation Insurance which is not as extensive in coverage as No Fault Insurance is. Pedestrians are covered for No Fault benefits. Trucks tend to have higher coverage as they are commercial vehicles. Their policies range from $100,000 to over $1,000,000 in coverage.
