After No-Fault Is Exhausted — What’s Next?
New York no-fault insurance pays medical bills after a motor vehicle accident regardless of fault. If another driver was at fault for the accident, our lawyers can demand compensation from that person’s insurance company after you have used up your no-fault benefits. Until we resolve your case, however, you will need to find another way to pay your bills.
It’s important to continue your medical treatment. Without treatment, your condition could linger or get worse. In addition, the insurance company of the at-fault driver could claim that your injuries are not serious since you discontinued treatment.
Your medical coverage options may include:
- Group health coverage through your employer
- Private health insurance
- Medicare or Medicaid
Your insurer will likely expect you to pay it back once your personal injury case is resolved. Our attorneys will negotiate with the insurance company so you keep as much money as possible.
What If I Don’t Have Medical Insurance? In this case, our attorneys can help you obtain medical care from a doctor who is willing to treat you in exchange for a lien on your personal injury settlement or verdict.
