We represent insurance companies in New York and New Jersey in all matters involving no-fault insurance claims. This is a complex area of insurance law and one that is particularly susceptible to fraud, and our attorneys focus on ensuring that our clients do not pay more than their responsibility.
At BG&S, LLP, we maintain a robust no-fault insurance practice centered on minimizing our clients’ liability through identification of fraudulent and other improper claims. Our team of 40+ attorneys has an extensive record of successfully representing insurers in New York and New Jersey in no-fault negotiations, arbitration, and litigation. We take a comprehensive, yet efficient, approach to defending our clients, relying on centuries of collective experience and the help of outside experts to identify and challenge questionable claims.
Experienced Representation for No-Fault Insurance Matters
While New York and New Jersey’s no-fault insurance laws were originally enacted to streamline the process of resolving claims for expenses arising from vehicle accidents, in recent years no-fault insurance policies have become favored targets of plaintiffs’ attorneys and others seeking to quickly maximize payouts for their accident-related claims. Beyond “just compensation,” claimants now regularly file excessive claims that go far and above what the no-fault insurance laws were intended to address.
In no-fault insurance matters, we employ tested strategies for limiting our clients’ obligations to no more than those established by law. This includes:
- Assessing liability and causation in no-fault insurance claims
- Assessing uninsured and under-insured motorist claims
- Performing intricate evaluations of claimants’ “threshold” losses and “serious injuries”
- Examining issues of priority
- Examining issues of indemnity, and subrogation
- Investigating suspected excessive and fraudulent no-fault insurance claims
Through these and other means, our attorneys are able to provide detailed analyses and opinions regarding insurers’ no-fault liability, and to strategically defend insurance companies in no-fault coverage arbitration and litigation. We also regularly represent clients in appeals.
