Who Pays My Medical Bills After a New York Car Accident?

Car accidents are, unfortunately, something that happens every single day here in New York City. If you were injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another, however, you’re most likely wondering who will pay for your medical bills, as you shouldn’t have to. Please continue reading and reach out to a knowledgeable Manhattan car accident lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about who will pay your medical bills after a car accident and how our NYS personal injury law firm can help you through each phase of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

Who will pay my medical bills after a car accident in New York?

Here in New York State, every driver is required to purchase Personal Injury Protection insurance, a type of no-fault insurance designed to help motorists recover some degree of compensation after sustaining injuries in auto accidents. So, in most cases, when involved in an accident, regardless of who’s at fault, you should receive compensation through PIP to cover the cost of a portion of your medical bills and lost wages. That said, if the accident was caused by the negligence of another driver and you haven’t recovered compensation to cover the full cost of your damages, you should strongly consider your legal options.

Can I sue for the full compensation that PIP doesn’t cover?

Yes, you can, if the accident wasn’t your fault. If another driver caused your accident, you can file a personal injury claim with a competent attorney in your corner. Your attorney can then work to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that you were hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence. As long as your attorney can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, then you should recover compensation to cover the full cost of your injuries, including the cost of medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and loss of enjoyment of life, among the other economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred.
