New York City Auto Accident Lawyer

Because New York is a "no-fault" auto insurance state, every driver is required to carry a minimum of $50,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. Filing a claim for compensation, however, can be cumbersome and frustrating. In addition, medical expenses and lost earnings during your time off work can very quickly exceed the amount of your PIP coverage. Then where do you turn? Turn to Katz Lawyers in New York City.

Injured in a car accident in New York? Call us right away. Attorney Seth Katz has focused his entire professional career on New York traffic law.

If you were involved in an accident in New York, you may think that filing a claim for damages is as easy as calling your insurance company to request payment from your own no-fault insurance PIP coverage. The truth is, your own insurance company doesn't want to pay out a claim to you, its own policyholder, any more than it wants to pay a plaintiff in a lawsuit. You will likely face hurdles involving records, medical reports and documents, all leading to unfair delays in the compensation you deserve.
