“What is no-fault insurance?” Not too long ago, we received a call from a potential client who had been badly injured in a car accident at a busy intersection. The situation was this: he had a green light and was crossing the intersection while another car blew through a red light and T-boned the back end of his vehicle. Aside from the property damage to his vehicle, he also had some high-priced medical bills for his injuries.
He did the right thing by coming to us. We told him that we would be happy to file a no-fault application with his insurance company. This isn’t necessarily a complicated process, but it is a process that you want to have an attorney take care of. The application needs to be submitted within 30 days of the accident, and it will provide certain no-fault benefits to the victim.
“No-fault insurance” is pretty self-explanatory: your insurance company reimburses you because the accident wasn’t your fault. This includes economic loss such as medical bills, property damage, and lost wages.
