No-Fault Accidents in Queens
Queens Car Accident Attorney
In our state, every motor vehicle is required to have a minimal amount of personal injury protection coverage, so that most accident victims are able to obtain benefits regardless of who was at fault. This “no-fault” coverage provides reimbursement for a certain amount of the economic damages that the victim sustains, including that of medical expenses, lost income, and other reasonable expenses (prescriptions, travel costs, costs for household help). If you have been hurt in a car accident and would like to file a claim for no-fault benefits, contact a Queens car accident attorney who can file on your behalf
At The Law Offices of Scott A.

Our firm possesses 22 years of legal experience, and we utilize that experience in aggressively protecting the rights of your personal injury clients. As a victim of negligence in a car accident, you deserve to recover the maximum damages available to you. Contact our offices today, and you will receive personal attention from an attorney whose goal it is to secure the best possible result in your case.
Limitations for No-Fault Claims
In order to successfully obtain no-fault benefits in your car accident case, you need to file a claim within 30 days of the accident. If you fail to do so within the time limit, the benefits you are entitled to may be reduced substantially. If your injury occurs in a vehicle that is uninsured, or if the vehicle that collided with you is uninsured, it is recommended that you file a claim with the insurance company covering your vehicle, as well as the insurance company of any family member in your household. If neither you nor your family members have automobile insurance, you may still be able to file a claim for benefits with the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation.
