We get calls every day from people that don’t understand what New York State no-fault benefits are, and that’s okay. There’s a lot of attorneys in the state, in the country that don’t understand what no-fault benefits are either.
What New York State is established is when you’re involved in an automobile accident, if you’re a pedestrian in an automobile accident, if you’re on a bicycle in an automobile accident, New York State has set up a way in which you can get your medical expenses, as well as your wages paid for.
