Understanding The No-Fault Filing Process

New York's No-Fault Law was enacted to provide prompt payment of medical bills and loss of wages caused by automobile accidents. People injured in auto accidents file a claim on their auto insurance for payment of medical expenses and loss of wages. The theory is simple, but in practice, collecting on these benefits is often very difficult. This is where La Sorsa & Beneventano can help. We have helped our clients collect over $44 million in unpaid invoices and no-fault bills. We have over 100 years of combined experience in medical asset recovery.

Filing For No-Fault Benefits

You must submit a no-fault application to the insurance company within 30 days of the accident. If this is not done within the required time limits, you may find your benefits reduced or denied completely. Each injured person has $50,000 available benefits to pay medical expenses, loss of wages and related expenses. These benefits are for those injured in auto accidents, but not for victims in motorcycle accident injury cases. Pedestrians hit by automobiles or motorcycles are eligible to file a claim. If you have purchased additional coverage, you will have more than $50,000 available. For serious injuries, defined by the No-Fault Law, you will be able to sue for damages.

We have worked for insurance companies and have insight into how these corporations address the claims process. Insurance companies have a primary duty to their shareholders, not an injured person. Filing for no fault benefits should guarantee that the medical personnel providing the services are paid. Unfortunately, this does not routinely occur without substantial collections activity which many smaller medical offices cannot do.
