The No-Fault Laws In New York
New York is a no-fault state. This means that those injured in a car accident should turn to their own insurance to recover compensation. However, you may be able to seek additional compensation, including noneconomic or punitive damages, if the following occurred:
- You surpassed the serious injury threshold under the law which consists of economic loss over $50,000.
- You or a loved one suffered severe injuries including but not limited to the loss of a limb or significant disfigurement. Wrongful death could also allow for additional compensation.
- You experience temporary impairment for more than 90 days during the first 180 days after your injury.
