Rosenberg & Rodriguez, PLLC

Were you involved in an accident where you were injured by an uninsured driver, a driver who left the scene of the accident or by a driver of a stolen car? Are you in a situation where you and none of your household relatives own an insured vehicle? What do you do when auto insurance coverage is not available to you?

The Motor Vehicle Collision Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC) is known as the “payor of last resort” and pays for victims of automobile accidents in the State of New York. There are certain requirements that need to be satisfied in order to be eligible to file a claim through MVAIC.

The requirements for MVAIC benefits are:

  • The accident occurred in New York.
  • You are the innocent victim of the accident.
  • You are a resident of New York at the time of the accident.
  • You and your household relatives do not have automobile insurance.
  • The accident must be reported to the authorities within 24 hours of the accident occurring.

Filing for MVAIC benefits can be a bit stressful and complicated.  If you have been injured in a car accident in New York and are unsure about the proper steps to take to make a claim, contact Rosenberg & Rodriguez and let us protect your rights.
