Injuries resulting from a car accident can lead to medical expenses. In a situation where the injuries are serious and require extensive treatment, it’s important to know how your medical bills are going to be paid. The following may help you understand how your medical bills will be covered if you have been injured in a car accident in New York.

Car insurance: If you were a resident of a “no-fault” state at the time of the accident, your own car insurance will primarily be responsible for your medical bills, regardless of who is at fault in the accident. You can make a “no-fault” injury claim under Personal Injury Protection coverage. However, there is a limit to what your own car insurance company will pay and the limit may differ from state to state. If your medical bills exceed your state’s “no-fault” limit, you are responsible for paying. You must file an application for “no-fault” benefits with your insurance company within 30 days of an accident.

The “no fault” benefits may cover the following necessary medical expenses:

  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Diagnosis and initial medical care
  • X-rays, MRIs and other tests
  • Surgery
  • Nursing services
  • Prosthetic devices
  • Prescription medications
  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Any other professional medical services provided

If your accident occurred in a state that does not have no-fault insurance, you will generally be responsible for paying your medical bills.

Med Pay: Med Pay pays for medical bills of drivers or passengers injured in a car accident. It covers medical bills including hospital visits, doctor visits, physical therapy sessions, etc. After your medical bills exceed the policy limits, you will be responsible for paying.

Medicare or Medicaid: Medicare or Medicaid, just like Med Pay, also cover medical bills to the extent the regulations allow and upon exhaustion of no-fault and private health coverage benefits. It is important to note that Medicare does not reimburse paid bills. They will pay your medical bills, but not reimburse you for bills that have already been paid.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as the result of a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., our car accident attorneys understand how to effectively represent persons who have been injured. Our team has the knowledge and resources necessary to obtain the compensation you deserve. To speak to our car accident lawyers, call 917-300-0797 or 718-619-4525.

after a car accident

Pursuing a car accident claim can be challenging. Things could become worst if your lawyer is not equipped to pursue the compensation you are entitled to. Hiring the right car accident lawyer is important to ensure a successful case. Choosing the right car accident lawyer can save you time and unnecessary stress.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right car accident lawyer:

Consider referrals: Referrals are one of the best ways to find a car accident lawyer. You can get recommendations from friends and family who have already used the services of a lawyer at an earlier date. These recommendations can help you narrow down your list of choices.

Consider the lawyer’s experience: Choose a lawyer who has sufficient experience and one who understands the court system. Find out how long the lawyer has been in practice. An experienced lawyer will know the ins and outs of the law and the procedures and protocol for negotiating and settling a car accident case.

Consider the lawyer’s success rate: Find out the success rate of the lawyer for cases similar to yours. If he or she has a strong record of winning cases like yours, it shows that they have experience and exemplary skills. The lawyer’s success rate can play an important role in how your case is handled.

Consider the lawyer’s reputation: A lawyer’s reputation among their colleagues in the court system and among insurance adjusters is critically important when it comes to the success of your claim. Choose someone with a good reputation.

Consider the lawyer’s available resources: To ensure a good settlement, consider a lawyer who is well-established, well-staffed and well-financed. A car accident case requires using forensic tools, conducting safety analyses and developing a network of medical and economic experts to calculate damages. Without these resources, your case may not be well-prepared and you could potentially lose.

If you were involved in a car accident due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages. Here are some tips for preserving your rights to obtain compensation after a car accident:

Document the accident scene: If possible, document as much as you can about the accident scene immediately after the accident. Strong evidence is the key to receiving fair compensation.

Talk to witnesses: If there were any witnesses and if you are able to talk with them, get their contact information. Ask them questions related to the accident and if they would be able to make written or verbal statements. The more information you obtain from the witnesses, the stronger your claim will be.

Call the police: Even if you had a minor injury, call the police. A police report will prove the authenticity of your accident, provide documentation of the accident scene and will often include evidence of fault.

Photograph the scene: If possible, take photographs of the accident scene, any damages to your vehicle or the other party’s vehicle, and any obvious injuries you have sustained. Also, take pictures of the traffic lights, signs or road if any of these conditions contributed to the accident.

Seek immediate medical attention: Treatment records, medical bills and doctor’s notes are strong evidence of the injuries you have sustained and the financial damage the accident has caused. A complete set of medical records, including medical bills, will be helpful when claiming compensation for the injuries incurred.

Get repair estimates for property damage: Collect repair estimates for any damage done to your car. Most insurance adjusters will demand an inspection of the damage to your car. If you already have the estimates, you will be able to make a strong argument for the repairs you need and the associated costs.

Hire a lawyer: If you feel the insurance company is deliberately delaying or blocking payment of your claim, or if their estimation is unfair, contact an experienced car accident lawyer. Your lawyer will fight for your rights and make sure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries and other damages.

If you have suffered injuries in a car accident, you may have an injury claim. It is crucial that you are represented by a dedicated and experienced car accident lawyer to help you through the legal process. At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., we have years of experience in dealing with car accident personal injury cases. Let our car accident lawyers handle your case and guide you through the legal process.

If you have been injured in a car accident with an uninsured driver, you can make a claim to your insurance company under uninsured motorist (UIM) coverage. UIM coverage is additional coverage that you can purchase from your insurance company. It protects you when you are injured in a car accident with an at-fault driver who does not have car insurance.

UIM coverage is only required in some states, but insurance companies are required to offer it to customers in most states. Usually, the time limit for buying UIM coverage is 30 days from the date of the accident.

Collision Coverage

You can add collision coverage to your insurance policy by paying an extra dollar amount. Collision coverage will pay to repair damages to your vehicle sustained in an accident with an uninsured driver or a hit-and-run driver. However, it will not cover your physical injuries.

Filing a Lawsuit

In no-fault states, each driver or his insurance company is responsible for his own injuries or damages regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Therefore, if you live in a no-fault state and were involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, filing a lawsuit against the other driver might not be an option.
If you live in a traditional negligence state, you may file a lawsuit against the uninsured driver. However, even if you are successful in proving that the other driver was at fault for the accident, you might not receive compensation from the uninsured driver.
If you were injured in a car accident with an uninsured driver, report the accident to your car insurance company and hire a car accident attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will help you receive the compensation you deserve.

At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., our car accident attorneys have years of experience in negotiating settlements with insurance companies. We will help you deal with the insurance companies and obtain compensation from the responsible parties. Call us at 917-300-0797 or 718-619-4525 or email fdervishi@dervishilaw.com.

One of the most common questions in a car accident case is when to settle the claim. With mounting medical bills and lost wages, a quick settlement might sound like the best idea to alleviate some of your stress. However, it may not always be the best strategy.

The insurance companies always try to minimize compensation. Accepting the first offer from them is probably a bad idea. A better strategy is to wait and hopefully settle for more substantial compensation, which may take longer. This requires gathering all the information and evidence you can obtain related to your accident before making the claim. The more information you have, the faster your case can settle or go to court, if necessary.

Consider the following questions before accepting a settlement offer:

  • How has the accident affected your life?
  • How will your injuries impact the rest of your life?
  • Will you require surgery?
  • How much will future treatments cost?

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, contact an experienced personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney specializing in car accident cases knows when to settle a car accident claim and can advise you accordingly. At Dervishi Law Group, P.C., our car accident attorneys have years of experience in negotiating settlements with the big insurance companies. We will help you deal with the insurance companies and secure compensation from the responsible parties. Call us at 917-300-0797 or 718-619-4525 or email fdervishi@dervishilaw.com.
