Although most people have heard the term “no-fault,” the details can be confusing. This is especially true when normal life is upended by an unexpected collision.
Properly navigating the no fault system is another important reason to contact an experienced injury lawyer immediately after a collision.
Generally speaking, no-fault insurance covers medical bills and a portion of lost wages arising from a motor vehicle collision. However, the benefits are not limitless and insurance companies frequently impose restrictions that limit your coverage. Most importantly, there are strict filing deadlines. When injury victims fail to file timely, the insurance company may deny benefits which means bills may go unpaid. A no-fault denial can also limit access to medical care, expose the injury victim to unnecessary debt and limit compensation for time lost from work.
