MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
If you have the misfortune to be in a motor vehicle accident, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Even if you feel you do not think you have any serious injuries, quite often symptoms of serious injuries might not show up for hours or even days later.
By seeing a doctor right away, it could later confirm proof of the causation of your injuries which can be used to help your claim in the event the pain persists.
After you see a doctor, you need to a file a claim with you insurance company. Under New York’s No-Fault law, you have thirty days to file a claim or you might be out of luck.
