No-fault Insurance

New York is a “no-fault” state. Even if you’re injured in an accident or crash caused by a drunk driver, the car insurance company covering the car you’re occupying at the time of your crash is responsible for paying your medical bills, lost wages, mileage, and household help expenses up to $50,000. Even though the no-fault insurance company might be your car insurance company, that doesn’t mean it’s on your side. There are important deadlines you must meet, required forms you must submit, and insurance-paid doctors by which you must be examined, or your medical bills and wage claims may be denied.

Unlike many personal injury lawyers, John K. Wright will help you process your no-fault claim for free.

The most important no-fault forms you must submit are the NF-6 and NF-2. The Application for No-Fault Benefits (NF-2) or written notice of the crash and injury must be submitted to the car insurance company within 30 days from the date of the crash. If adequate written notice was provided within 30 days, the NF-2 must be submitted within 90 days from the date of the crash.

If you’re claiming wage loss, you must submit an out of work note from your doctor and your employer must complete and submit a Verification of Employment (NF-6). All John K. Wright’s clients receive no-fault brochures with more information.

Recovering Damages

In addition to collecting no-fault insurance benefits, you likely have a personal injury case against the drunk driver for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of income, and medical bills over and above the no-fault coverage. In order to collect for these damages, New York State requires you to prove you sustained a “serious injury.”

There are nine categories of “serious injury” and from the moment you’re involved in a crash, the insurance companies are tirelessly working to prove you did not sustain a “serious injury.” Yes, insurance companies will do almost anything to protect their drunk driver and their bank accounts. This is where you need John K. Wright to fight for you and ensure you’re not run over and beat up by the insurance companies and their team of lawyers and experts.

Our Clients Say It Best

"John Wright Personal Injury Lawyer... Well, I need to start out by saying that even though my particular situation was very heartbreaking, John Wright and Sheri Stanton had been and still are the most caring law professionals that I've ever seen or have known about. Prior to that I felt like I had just been going through the motions with the first set of attorneys, that had been referred to me by close friends.

John Wright made me feel like my case mattered and that the proper amount of time and patience would help be the deciding factors in the most successful outcome. His thoughtfulness and listening skills were always present which put me at ease throughout the long drawn process. I could also tell by his prior military law experience that he always wanted to find out all the facts for each and every client to best assist their case. Not, just going through the motions! Sheri Stanton, John's right hand assistant has always been both professional and diligent, while at the same time a very caring and compassionate person, as well. I couldn't have felt like I was in better hands, from start to finish. I owe them a debt of gratitude and will always remember their kindness and perseverance they possess. It makes me think about how I conduct my own life's situations and helping others in the same manner.

So, thank you both, John Wright and Sheri Stanton for the best outcome reached and for getting to be such good friends in the process. I wish you both the best."
