New York Car Accident Attorneys Committed to Service and Results
At the law firm of Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP, our personal injury lawyers build on a tradition of nearly 50 years of client service to make sure that Hudson Valley accident victims get the information, advice and advocacy they need when they need it. In car accident cases in New York State, peoples’ needs cover a wide range of issues, but our experience indicates that above all, accident victims need timely and dependable advice about their rights and responsibilities under our “no-fault” auto insurance system. Contact Jacobowitz and Gubits in Monticello or Walden for a free consultation about the best ways to protect your interests in the aftermath of a car accident. New York’s no-fault system requires people to apply for benefits with their own insurers within 30 days of an accident, otherwise, you risk losing the right to coverage for medical treatment. Even if you manage to receive payment for the medical expenses associated with your accident from other sources, the payments you receive may count against the liability coverage limits under the other driver’s insurance or your own underinsured motorist benefits, especially if you both were paid by Medicare or Medicaid. Because of the importance of preserving our clients’ access to no-fault coverage, much of the work we do in the early stages of an auto accident case involves dealing with our client’s own insurance company. We make sure that applications for no-fault benefits are prepared accurately and submitted on time. In many cases, the insurer will provide coverage but fail to acknowledge or understate the extent or severity of the injuries and resist payment for second opinions or additional testing. Insurers often suspend or terminate payment of no-fault benefits before the patient has achieved maximum medical recovery. We can help prevent that from happening.
