Many may not realize that when involved in a car accident, whether it is your fault or the other driver’s, you are still entitled to insurance coverage. These types of benefits are called No-Fault Benefits. Whether you live in Utah or New York will depend on what type of compensation is available to you.
Many times in an accident, a personal injury will be acquired and medical attention may be needed. Not to mention the damages to the car that will inevitably have to be fixed. Utah is a No Fault state, so these things should be covered by insurance regardless of who was at fault in an accident.
Additional compensation may also be available. Any wage lost because of the accident, in home nursing care, miles paid to get to medical appointments or childcare services required as a result of the accident and injuries, should also be covered by the insurance company. After an accident, immediately file for these benefits. They must be requested within one year of the accident or the compensation will be lost forever.
Many insurance companies will try to get out of paying these benefits if they feel you were at fault. Here at Adams Davis PC, our lawyers can help you get the benefits you deserve.
