Litigation offers providers many diverse options in the No-Fault collections arena. Although litigating a No-Fault matter is more time-consuming, it has distinct advantages for a health care provider. The New York rules of evidence are applied and insurance companies have to make a cost/benefit analysis to decide whether to send multiple witnesses and hire doctors to present a defense to the NF-10. Many times the result of this analysis is a fair settlement of your claim or possible loss to the carrier at trial. No matter what grounds, excuses, and reasons the insurance company set forth for their basis for denying you payment; no matter what legal issues arise in the collection of your No-Fault claims, we at Lewin & Baglio, LLP can help you get paid.
Very few attorneys who label themselves “No-Fault” specialists are truly that. This area of law in New York is extremely volatile and fast-paced.

- Not seek to collect on the bill or
- Seek reimbursement in arbitration or go to litigation.
This is where a skilled and seasoned attorney is a necessity.
To further understand our strengths, some of our attorneys began their careers as defense counsel for insurance companies. This familiarity with knowing how “the other side” defends No-Fault claims is an invaluable tool in the litigation process. Our members’ knowledge of the law and insurance company’s workings can successfully prevent the insurance company from producing any witness at trial.
