While you have 3 years to file a lawsuit after being injured in a car accident, you only have 30 days to file a claim for your no-fault benefits. New York is a no-fault insurance state, which means you can claim benefits such as lost wages and medical bills from your insurance regardless of who was at fault in your accident. A personal injury lawyer can help you through the claims process and make sure that you get the maximum compensation possible, and can also help you file a lawsuit against the liable party in your car accident in order to recover damages beyond the scope of your no-fault benefits.
