Don’t be afraid to see a doctor after a car accident
Many clients tell our firm they are afraid to go the doctor after a car accident even though they feel pain.
This is because they may not have health/ medical insurance coverage and fear that the hospitals and or doctors will send them a big bill and or put them in collection. However, the New York No Fault law requires the automobile insurance company of the car you are physically in to pay for up to $50,000 of medical benefits to each injured person. This is called Personal Injury Protection (PIP). It acts like health insurance and most people can treat with a doctor for up to 4 or more months. Therefore, if you feel pain and think you are injured, do see a doctor. Don’t let economic fears deter you. Contact a New York personal injury attorney immediately so that your attorney may file a No Fault application within 30 days of the accident in order to confirm that the insurance company will pay for your medical treatment.
