That means the at-fault party is obligated to compensate you for the expenses and damages you have suffered.

Generally, damages can include your past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage or loss, wage or income loss, and emotional anguish. In the case of serious or catastrophic injury, damages may include compensation for lifelong medical care, personal assistance, vocational rehabilitation, physical therapy, home or vehicle renovations to accommodate your condition, for loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
Traffic accidents are the most common type of incident that leads to a personal injury claim. In New York, if you are injured in a traffic accident, you are generally subject to New York’s no-fault insurance regulation. This means that you must turn to your insurance company for the compensation you need to recover. Only in cases of serious injury will this rule be waived. In those cases, you can file your claim against the at-fault party. New York defines a serious injury in a variety of ways, such as a fracture, serious disfigurement, significant or permanent loss of function of a body part or system, or being substantially disabled for 90 days.
