Do I Have an Auto Accident Claim?
In New York State, not every auto accident results in a claim for personal injuries. There are factors that may determine whether or not you are able to file a claim for personal injury in addition to the benefits provided by your No-Fault insurance company.
For common types of claims, you must be able to prove that:
- The negligence of another motorist was responsible for causing the accident.
- You’ve sustained a serious physical injury as a result of the accident.
If you have any questions about your ability to file a claim, it’s important to protect your legal rights to compensation by talking to an auto accident attorney.

What is Negligence?
Determining who was negligent—or legally responsible—for your rear-end collision can be simple. But, in other accident cases, proving another motorist was at fault for your accident may be more complicated.
The other driver may be considered negligent if he or she:
- was driving distracted,
- drove under the influence,
- failed to yield,
- failed to observe a stop sign or traffic light,
- improperly maintained his or her vehicle,
- made an illegal turn,
- or drove the wrong way.
