Automobile Accident Injury LawyersRegardless of who was at fault for the automobile accident, you may be entitled to recover medical bills and lost wages from your auto insurance company, on behalf of New Yorks’ No-Fault Auto Insurance law that was passed in 1973. The idea behind this is an injured person can be reimbursed and receive medical treatment without having to determine who is liable. Every no fault policy has a threshold or monetary limit that it will cover, so make sure you check with your auto insurance company so you are aware of what your limit is. Many no-fault insurance policies require the injured as well as those representing them to maintain important time tables in order to properly preserve their rights. If you have been involved in an automobile crash, call the experienced team of car accident attorneys at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP in Buffalo to see what we can do for you!

If you have experienced a “serious injury” as a result of the auto accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your pain and suffering. Examples of “serious injuries” that would allow coverage for pain and suffering are:

  • Death
  • Dismemberment
  • Significant disfigurement (Such as a scar however, the injury must be significant enough to cause a reasonable person to view the result as “unattractive, objectionable, or as the subject of pity or scorn”)
  • Fracture
  • Loss of a fetus
  • Significant limitation of use of a body, function, or system
  • Permanent consequential limitation of use of a body, organ, or member
  • Permanent loss of use of a body, organ, member, function, or system
  • An impairment/injury of a non-permanent nature that prevents the victim from conducting his or her usual and customary daily activities for a period of at least 90 days during the 180 days immediately following the accident

Don’t hesitate to call our dedicated car accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP to help research those complex insurance coverage aspects of your case. In most instances, the most important but costly step of the legal process is figuring out which insurance coverage will best insure you and maximizes your ability for a quick recovery. Let our automobile accident attorneys help guarantee you are receiving the most of your rightfully deserved compensation.

FAQs on No-Fault



Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

A motorcycle accident can be one of the most traumatic and life-altering events to happen to any person or family. This severity is caused by the lack of protection motorcyclists have in comparison to automobile drivers or truck drivers. In fact, wrongful deaths due to motorcycle accidents account for over 10 percent of all traffic fatalities.

To many people’s surprise, motorcyclists’ rights are not protected under No-Fault Insurance, even though injuries sustained are often far more severe. This means that if you are injured while riding a motorcycle and don’t seek proper legal representation, you could be responsible for large medical bills and be rejected compensation for any missed work.

You and your family shouldn’t be burdened with having to prove the injuries sustained were caused by another persons’ negligence. Call the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP in Buffalo, NY for a free consultation today. We would love to help you and your family out during this difficult time.

Insurance companies often give accident survivors and/or their families the runaround to demoralize the claimants from challenging a claim denial or low settlement offer. Let our motorcycle accident attorneys help you get the money you are rightfully deserved.

Our dedicated Buffalo team of motorcycle accident attorneys will consult experts in accident reconstruction, medical professionals as well as other experts to preserve and present all information relevant to winning your case.

Commercial Truck Accidents

Sleep deprivation can kill

Have you or a loved one been injured in a tractor trailer accident? Did you know that there are a number of safety laws and regulations that truck drivers must comply with in order to drive these trucks legally?

If you have been injured in a truck accident and are seeking legal assistance, our team of Buffalo truck accident attorneys at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP are here to get you the compensation you rightfully deserve.

The laws and regulations mentioned above are set in place by both the federal and state governments to control a number of everyday safety procedures including, but not limited to:

  • Maintenance and inspection procedures
  • Hours of service
  • Driver and licensing qualifications

When a tractor trailer is involved in an accident, the result is often much more severe than most automotive accidents. The size and weight of trucks increases their ability to cause damage to smaller vehicles and their occupants. Accidents caused by tractor trailers can result in severe, long-term injuries. Don’t let the actions of a truck driver cause your family more pain and suffering than it already has. The experienced Buffalo truck accident lawyers are here to help you with the legal process while allowing you to focus on recovering.

To best protect your rights throughout the legal process contact The Heavy Hitters® semi-truck accident attorneys. Our team of attorneys has access to experts that will help defend your case in the court of law.

  • Tractor trailers – 18 wheelers, semi’s, big rigs, etc.
  • Construction vehicles
  • Tanker trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • Cement trucks
  • Other large vehicles carrying over-sized loads, etc.

It is of the utmost importance that you talk with a truck accident lawyer before meeting with a representative from the trucking company or its insurance company. For a free consultation, call Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP and their devoted team of Buffalo truck accident lawyers at  (716) 304-1145.
