A: If you want your medical bills paid, the answer is absolutely yes.
As of today, May 16, 2012, you have only 30 days to file with No-fault in order to get your medical bills and expenses paid. Otherwise, you'll be left to your own devices and own health insurance to pay those medical bills.
Once you have filed, then you have time to assess the extent of your injuries and how disabling they are.
Bottom line: you MUST file within 30 days of your accident.
WARNING: By the time you are reading this, the law may have changed. The only true way to know whether you have time to file with no-fault or file a lawsuit is to pick up the phone and call. This way you will get timely and updated information about your particular car accident case.
