When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, you have the right to claim compensation under New York’s no fault insurance law. As the victim of a car accident, you should not rely on any insurance company, even your own, to protect your interests.

The primary goal of such a team is to limit the amount of compensation they pay to auto accident victims like yourself.
There are certain precautions to take right after you get into an accident. You must stop at the scene of the accident whether the accident involved a pedestrian, a parked car, or moving car, or property. It is the law in New York State that drivers involved in an accident must stay at the scene to exchange any information or give assistance to the injured party. You can be charged with hit and run and face harsh penalties if you flee the scene. Jail, fine, or both are highly probable in a hit and run case.
Do not volunteer any additional information, in the sense that you may think you are in the wrong and learn that the other driver may have more blame in the scenario you are in. The first step would be to discuss with your insurance agent, and a lawyer. You should not agree to pay for damages or sign any documents except a traffic ticket.
