Does the claimant not have medical insurance? What does your insurance contract state?

I don't know your entire history. I am assuming you didn't agree with the first opinion?  See the answer the below. Your first link covers discussion of no fault auto insurance and what it covers and doesn't cover. http://www.ins.state.ny.us/auto/2007/auto0702.htm
