The expenses resulting from an auto accident can be high, and if you need to miss work as a result of your motor vehicle accident, you’re missing your paycheck. Fortunately, you can get paid for the time you’ve been away from work due to your accident.
Under basic no-fault insurance, when you’re injured in a car accident in New York State, you may receive to up to 80 percent of your lost earnings or $2,000 per month, whichever is the lesser amount.
