As much as we try to prevent them, auto accidents happen every day. Whether you’re the driver, the passenger, or a pedestrian or bicyclist, you may be involved in an auto accident when you least expect it.

Getting the proper medical attention is important. However, in order to have your expenses properly covered by No-Fault insurance, you’ll need to follow a few important steps. Most importantly, you’ll need to see a doctor or medical professional that accepts this kind of insurance.

What to Do After an Auto Accident

It’s always important to get properly checked out after an auto accident. Even if you’re not feeling seriously hurt, your injuries may be masked by trauma or shock. Getting evaluated quickly and efficiently after your accident can ensure your injuries are properly treated.

If you weren’t responsible for the accident, you’ll also want to properly document your injuries, including getting feedback from a medical professional. Consulting a doctor immediately after your injuries can help you determine what kind of treatment you will need, as well as how long you can expect to be in recovery.

In the state of New York, medical coverage is covered by No-Fault insurance. Rather than getting money from the other driver’s insurance provider, you would use your own No-Fault insurance to cover these costs.

Working with a team of medical professionals that understand the No-Fault insurance process is important because they can help you retrieve the documentation you need to prevent you from needing to pay your medical bills out of your own pocket. They can also help you understand what kind of compensation you may need from your insurance company.
