As an experienced Buffalo Accident Lawyer I am often asked about no-fault benefits. In New York State everybody who is injured in a car accident is entitled to no-fault benefits. The innocent victim as well as the person who made the mistake or caused the accident, they all get the same initial bundle of benefits through no-fault. It’s your medical benefits, your wages, mileage reimbursement, things like that. People are only entitled to anything above and beyond that if they qualify as being what they call either seriously injured or a threshold injury in New York State. There are certain very specific categories that you must fit into as defined by law, and your attorney and you are the best ones to go over what categories you might qualify for after the records are in and the injuries have been determined.
