Law Office Of Lisa is fully familiar with the New York No Fault threshold statute, and can assist out clients in ensuring that their car accident claim will not be dismissed summarily by the Court. No Fault medical coverage, sometimes known as PIP, can be tricky to navigate in New York, and our firm understands the way the insurance companies evaluate the accident victims’ injuries through independent medical examinations by their hired doctors.
Failure to attend an independent medical examination or “IME” can result in cancellation of benefits. Our smithtown lawyer can assist you with any questions you have about these examinations, and will assist you with scheduling or rescheduling your appointments.
Many firms will reject cases if the injured party sustained what is known as “soft tissue” injuries. These type of injuries are more commonly known as whiplash and often involve disc injuries to the neck and back. Our firm has extensive experience dealing with soft tissue injuries, and understands the pain and suffering associated with these injuries.
The no fault statute in New York delineates what constitutes a serious injury. Ms. Fine has had success in sustaining claims for soft tissue injuries in conjunction with the stringent requirements of the threshold statutes. We view these cases as challenging, but welcome as we understand what needs to be done and can guide you through the process, making sure the proper evidence is documented in order to prove your case.
