How Do I Know If I Have a Car Accident Personal Injury Case?

New York is a “no fault” state that requires insurance companies to cover damages up to a certain point, regardless of who is at fault. However, being a no-fault state does not mean that the person at fault is not responsible for their negligence. 

In the State of New York, car accident victims are allowed to pursue a lawsuit directly against the at-fault driver for compensation if they have suffered a “serious injury” as defined under the Insurance Law to include:

  • Death
  • Dismemberment
  • Significant disfigurement
  • A fracture
  • Loss of a fetus
  • Permanent loss of use of a body organ, member, function or system
  • Permanent consequential limitation of use of a body organ or member
  • A significant limitation of use of a body function or system
  • A medically determined injury or impairment of a non-permanent nature which prevents the injured person from performing substantially all of the material acts which constitute such person’s usual and customary daily activities for not less than ninety days during the one hundred eighty days immediately following the occurrence of the injury or impairment

Our experienced team of car accident lawyers in Mount Pleasant will help you navigate the intimidating process of the legal system. We are here to listen, guide, and help you throughout the legal process as we seek the compensation you deserve.
