What To Do
Following a car accident in New York, there are specific steps you should take.
Call 911. Request police assistance and, if there are injuries, call an ambulance as well. Do not try to move or treat any injuries yourself. Wait until help has arrived.
Document evidence. Take photos of all vehicles involved and any resulting damage. This can be used for your case later on.
Exchange information with all drivers involved. Do not give the other parties more information than is required. Information should include:
- Full name
- Phone number
- Driver’s license information
- Insurance information
File an accident report. In New York, you are required to file an accident report with the DMV using an MV-104 form. If the accident was minor and property damage was $1,000 or less, you are not required to file this form.
Contact your insurance company. Many insurance companies require you to report the accident as soon as possible, whether you were at fault or not. Failing to do so may cause the company to refuse coverage for the accident.
Seek medical treatment. Some injuries are not immediately apparent or visible. Receiving treatment and having medical documentation can help your injury claim.
Speak to a New York Car accident attorney. An attorney will answer your questions and advise you of your legal options. The quicker you discuss the situation with an attorney, the sooner they can get started working on your case and claims.

How Anthony Ferrante Can Help You
When you are involved in a car accident here in New York City you may be able to make three different types of claims:
- No-Fault or Personal Injury Protection
- Property Damage or Collision
- Pain and Suffering from Serious Injuries
The most important thing to deal with upfront is your claim for no-fault benefits. In New York, drivers are required to carry no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) insurance as part of their vehicle insurance policy. Having PIP insurance means that your medical bills related to the car accident will be paid through no fault. You are also entitled to get repaid for time lost from work as well as out-of-pocket expenses for transportation and prescriptions.
To qualify for no-fault benefits, you must apply within 30 days of the accident. Once filed, the benefits are available to you regardless of how the accident happened or who is at fault. Our office handles the filing of this application and helps process any additional claims for lost wages. We do this all while making sure your medical bills are placed in line for payment.

New York City Property Damage Claim Lawyer
Equally as important as an injury claim is a claim for property damage. You may bring your claim for property damage against the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident, or with your own insurance company if you have collision coverage. You may also be entitled to compensation in the form of a rental vehicle, as well as payment of your towing and storage bills following the accident.
New York Pain and Suffering Claim Attorney
The most significant claim is often the one for pain and suffering. Here in New York, you must prove that you have sustained a serious injury before you can recover any money for a car accident. This is because our legislature provided no-fault benefits which theoretically pay all of your medical bills, lost wages, and out-of-pocket expenses.
Because the theory behind the no-fault law and the reality of how it plays out in your life don’t always match, you need a representative who can help you establish your claim with strong medical proof and documentary evidence.
