If I am injured in car in New York, how does lost wage reimbursement work?

  • Wage reimbursement is tax-free, and is not reported on your annual tax report
  • If disabled, your paralegal and doctor will assist in filling out and providing disability notes
  • No fault wages are good for up to 3 years, and will provide income while recovering from injuries
  • You receive partial payment of wages in first 26 weeks of disability, then receive the full 80% check once no fault insurance kicks into play
  • Lost wage applies to self-employed, but is trickier to handle because more proof of tax paperwork is required

Client Reviews

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
