Accidents involving automobiles, buses, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and certain other vehicles are covered under laws that apply to motor vehicle accidents. Of course, sometimes pedestrians are involved in these accidents. In certain cases, medical benefits and a certain portion of other lost benefits are paid to them regardless of who is at fault.
People injured in motor vehicle accidents can recover money damages for pain and suffering, as well as for other personal injury and economic loss sustained. In New York States there are special "threshold laws" that apply to certain accidents and injuries.
