That person will review all of the facts and correspondence from the insurance company with you and he or she will bring arbitration or a lawsuit against the insurer to settle the coverage dispute.

    No Fault mileage is based upon the same reimbursement as New York Worker's Compensation. It can vary due to gas price fluctuations. Under the Regulation, you have 90 days from the date of the health service to claim your mileage or other transportation expenses. For mileage, you put down the name of the medical facility you visited and the address. If you went by car, you find the mileage from your home/work to the facility (you can use Mapquest) and just put down the miles. If you used...

    In addition to the great information you have already received, I would also like to add that if you are still treating and are considering further treatment options, it it may be a bit premature and short-sighted to settle your case right now.

    I agree with everything that has been said so far. I'm also wondering why you have to pay doctors? Your care should be covered under the Taxi's No Fault insurance and if your doctors were at one time being reimbursed under an assignment of benefits, they are not allowed to take a lien against your settlement. Ultimately, you have the right, as the client, to take a settlement or to reject it.

    If your surgeon took an assignment of No-Fault benefits, then the surgeon has no legal right to take a lien on your personal injury recovery. Have your lawyer obtain a copy of the assignment of benefits, if you signed one. If you did, any lien you may have signed is void.

    Hire a lawyer to review the police report and other facts and circumstances surrounding the accident and deal with the insurance company. You might want an independent estimate of the value of your vehicle's damage, especially if you end up having to bring a property damage action in court.

    Unfortunately, with the NY courts being as busy as they are, lawsuits are slow in progressing to either trial or settlement. Since we don't know all of the facts as you present them, your current lawyer may have had very good reasons to wait this long to file the Note of Issue. There may have been discovery issues, motion practice (which takes a while to get through in the courts) and other delays which may have been out of his or her control, including the fact that you recently had surgery....

    1. Get yourself checked out at the emergency room. If you have already been discharged, follow up with an orthopedist as soon as possible. 2. Make sure you obtained the information on the taxi (Plate/Medallion info). Hopefully police were called to scene and they took down a report. If they did, obtain a report from the precinct asap. 3. Your primary source of No-Fault coverage would be on the Taxi's insurer. You need to find out who the insurer is and contact them to give them initial...

    To expand on the answer provided, you need to file a Notice of Claim with the City within ninety (90) days of the accident to bring any damages claim. Hire a lawyer to assist you with this as specific legal requirements must be followed or your claim can be declared a nullity.
