However, based on New York State No-Fault law, you have to look to your own auto insurance to pay your medical bills. A lot of our clients are surprised and troubled to hear this, asking things like:
- Why do I have go through my car insurance when the accident wasn't my fault?
- Why doesn't the other driver's car insurance pay for my medical bills?
- Will my auto insurance rates go up?
These questions are all understandable, but no-fault is structured that each party, regardless of fault, looks to their own car insurance to pay their medical bills.

Certain forms need to be filled-out right away though, so contacting a lawyer with experience in this field is warranted.
