Denied Benefits

Have You Been Denied Benefits Under a No-Fault Insurance Policy?

If you are injured in a personal injury auto accident, your medical payments and lost wages are mandated under New York’s no-fault law. No-fault insurance is a provision in your auto policy that provides for medical payments and lost wages after you have been injured in a car accident.
Once you have received initial treatment, often in the emergency room or with your primary care doctor, your insurance company will send you to its own insurance doctor. The doctor who is on the insurance company’s payroll usually makes a recommendation that you do not need any further medical care or are not seriously injured thereby stopping the benefits and lost wages, if you are out of work, available to you under New York state no fault laws.
As you can imagine, this process often leads our clients to feel they are being refused adequate medical care for the serious injuries they suffered in a car accident or slip-and-fall. Because many serious injuries to the head, neck and spine are difficult to diagnose, without proper legal representation you may be left without the care you need to recover.
