My NYS no-fault insurance claim to recover my deductible was

Customer Question

My NYS no-fault insurance claim to recover my deductible was settled through arbitration. Can I receive a copy of the arbitration report? If so, how? I am particularly interested to know the arbitrator's rationale for his/her decision. FYI, I recovered my full deductible back of $500. However, I wish to pursue the car rental cost of $600 that was not a part of the no-fault claim.

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Contract the arbitrator directly if you know which company did it, and ask them for a copy of the report. If they won't provide it, call your insurance company and ask. They should give it to you, especially if you explain that you'd like to go after the other party for the car rental costs. Talk to a supervisor if you have to.

If absolutely necessary, a local attorney can subpoena the report for you. Or you could file a lawsuit against the other party, get a blank subpoena from the clerk of the court, and serve that on your insurance company. But hopefully it won't come to that.
