Car accidents come in many different forms, they may be rear-end collisions or head-on collisions, and they may involve pedestrians, trucks, motorcycles or other vehicles on the road.
Under New York law, car drivers are are entitled to compensation for medical expenses and lost wages no matter who is at fault--this is part of the no-fault insurance all drivers are required to have. You are only able to bring a legal action in court to recover compensation for pain and suffering if you have sustained a serious or permanent injury.
A "serious injury" is defined by New York law as one that results in one of the following:
- Dismemberment or significant disfigurement
- A fracture
- Loss of a fetus
- Permanent loss of use of a body organ, member, function or system
- Permanent consequential limitation of use of a body organ or member
- Significant limitation of use of a body function or system
- Medically determined injury or impairment that changes your life during the first 90 out of 180 days following the car accident
