New York “No Fault” Insurance—What You Need to Know

Under New York accident law, there are two parts to "no-fault" insurance:

  • The first part involves benefits such as hospital bills, doctor bills, and lost wages. This means that those bills are covered without having to prove who was at fault.
  • The second part of no-fault insurance details the limits on benefits that can be recovered for pain and suffering. You can only pursue compensation for pain and suffering if the injuries are deemed "serious".
