What You Should Do if You Have Been in a Car Accident
Your actions immediately after you have been in a car accident are very important to secure your right to a claim for damages. If you are not immediately rushed to the hospital after a car accident and it is safe to do so, you should:
Document the accident scene with photographs and video footage
Identify any eyewitnesses and obtain their contact information
Whether you have visible injuries or not, you should see a doctor for a complete evaluation
Notify your insurance company of the accident
Do not admit fault for the accident
Do not speak to the other party’s insurance adjuster

New York’s No-Fault Insurance Rules
Vehicle owners in New York are required to have auto insurance coverage for personal injury and property damage. New York is a no-fault insurance state, which means that your insurance company is responsible for the damages you suffer in an accident. This avoids the time and expense involved in investigating an accident to determine which party was at fault for the accident. Unfortunately, even under no-fault insurance rules, there is no guarantee that your insurance company will cover the full value of your claim. Your damages may also exceed the limits of your insurance coverage. You need an experienced Oyster Bay car accident attorney who understands the law and the tactics of insurance companies to protect your interests.
