What do I do if I was just in a car accident?

If you are reading this right after being involved in an car crash, you should never leave the scene until after the police have been to the accident scene. If you do leave, you could be facing criminal charges.

  1. Call 911 to report the accident. Your first step is to call an ambulance if someone has been injured.
  2. Ensure safety. If possible, try to avoid creating further damage for others by making sure your vehicle is not creating a hazard to other motorists by moving it from traffic.
  3. Do not admit fault! Never admit that the car crash was your fault. Liability is a legal conclusion that will be investigated later.
  4. File an Accident Report. Under New York Law you have an obligation to file your own report called an MV-104 with the DMV. You will want to consult with a lawyer to make sure that you are accurately portraying the accident how it actually happened.
  5. Gather Information. Collect the names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses, or others involved in the accident and note any car license plates that you see.
  6. Photograph the scene if possible so that you can show vehicle damage, vehicle position, skid marks, road obstructions, and injuries. Only do this if it is safe! Nearly everyone has a camera on their phone nowadays. Use it.

In New York, no-fault insurance is obligated under the law to pay for all reasonable medical expenses from a car accident. The no-fault carrier is responsible for paying medical expenses submitted to them at the no-fault rate.

As the injured party, you are not responsible the bills and have no duty to pay the difference between what no-fault pays and what you doctor is charging.

However, if no-fault denies a particular payment, you are then responsible for that payment. Any time you go to a doctor, hospital, for diagnostic testing or any other medical provider, you should let them know that no-fault is responsible for payment and provide them the assigned a claim number if you know it.

You should send the insurance company any bill you receive immediately. If you don't submit the bills within 45 days of the date of service, you will become personally responsible for paying it at the full rate.
