Visit Brooklyn No-Fault Motor Vehicle Accident Chiropractor Dr. Mollins

By State law, New York is a no-fault state. What this means is that every person in a vehicle is covered for medical care for any injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident regardless of fault. If the driver of a car crashes into a pole and gets injured, it is their fault. In New York State (NYS) that person is entitled to receive treatment under no-fault even though the accident was their responsibility. When involved in a motor vehicle accident, documentation is crucial.  

Brooklyn workers compensation and no-fault motor vehicle accident chiropractor Dr. Mollins always recommends calling the police, of course, unless there are already police at the scene. A police report provides proof and a record of the accident, as well as the names of the passengers in your vehicle, the names of the individuals (passengers and driver) in the other vehicle(s), the insurance company of the other vehicle, and a brief description of how the accident happened.

The most important thing is to take care of your health, so we advise individuals involved in an accident to immediately go to the emergency room to get checked out. If you don’t go to the emergency room, then see Dr. Mollins immediately. Typically, injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident may not show up right away and symptoms can gradually develop. That is exactly why you need to see a physician even if you have no pain directly following the accident.

As soon as possible, contact your automobile insurance company and inform them that you have been in a motor vehicle accident. Your insurance company will send you a no-fault application. Once you fill out the application properly (the application asks about what areas are injured and other pertinent information) and send it to the insurance carrier, you will receive a claim number.  Once you have a claim number, you are entitled to treat all injuries under no-fault.

Remember, however, that in order to be treated under no-fault, the accident victim will have to see a doctor that accepts no-fault. The beauty of no-fault coverage is that there is no copayment, no deductible, and no out of pocket expense for medical care.  

Dr. Jeff J. Mollins and all of his referred specialists (neurologists, orthopedists, pain management doctors, physical therapists, etc.) have been treating no-fault patients for almost 30 years. He is an expert in the diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents.
