As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer, I actually have had clients call in the past who were confused about what rights they have in an accident. Oftentimes this stems from their confusion of the terms no-fault and no-fault insurance. Some people simply assume that if there’s a no-fault statute involved, and that they can’t pursue any personal injury claim. New York State is a no-fault state, and what that specifically means is that no matter who’s fault the accident is, all drivers and passengers get the same bundle of no-fault benefits initially.
People that are seriously injured at the fault of somebody else can still qualify for pain and suffering, lost wages, and other economic losses if their injuries qualify as being serious enough. If you’re involved in an accident like this, you should call an attorney who is qualified in handling these cases immediately so they can do the investigation and handle your claim for you. At Andrews, Bernstein, Maranto & Nicotra, we offer free consultations and are happy to assist you in discussing and handling your claim. Don’t settle for less. Let our experience work for you.
