Insurance Requirements for Bronx Drivers 

Although New York requires its drivers to obtain insurance to operate a vehicle, far too often, uninsured drivers are still on the road

Insurance Minimums

The following are state insurance coverage minimums in New York: 

  • Bodily injury liability coverage: $25,000 per individual and$50,000 per accident
  • Fatality coverage: The minimum bodily injury coverage of $25,000 doubles to $50,000 
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): $50,000 per person
  • Property damage coverage: $10,000 
  • Uninsured motorist insurance coverage: $25,000 per individual and$50,000 per accident

Uninsured insurance coverage compensates victims in uninsured accidents caused by driver negligence up to applicable policy limits. However, to recover damages from your policy, the insurance company must verify that the negligent driver did not have liability insurance coverage at the time of the accident. Additionally, the uninsured driver must have caused the accident and be liable for your damages.

Serious Injuries

In order to  proceed with a successful uninsured claim for compensation for your pain and suffering, you must demonstrate that you have sustained a serious injury in the accident. New York Insurance Law Section 5102(d), defines “serious injury” by the following: 

  • An injury or impairment of a non-permanent nature that prevents the victim from performing daily activities 
  • Bone fracture 
  • Death
  • Dismemberment
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of a fetus
  • Permanent loss of an organ, member, function, or system
  • Permanent impairment of an organ, body function, system, or member

With the representation of the highly experienced lawyers at Lever & Ecker, PLLC, we can determine whether your injuries qualify as a serious injury under New York insurance laws so you may seek the complete compensation you deserve in an uninsured accident lawsuit.
