My question involves insurance law for the state of: NY
I am looking to make a claim on the insurance of an at-fault party that did damage to my car (sideswipe). This occurred in Brooklyn. I was able to obtain a police report which I was assured would contain his insurance information but I was displeased to find the code for the insurer was listed as 999, which I am told is an "unlisted insurer." How am I supposed to make a claim when I can't figure out who the insurance provider is?
On a side note, I was given a ticket for not being able to provide proof of insurance. My current insurance card had gone missing. The officer told me I would be able to simply mail proof of insurance with the ticket to the specified address and it would be dismissed without need for a hearing but upon inquiring about this at the precinct, I was told I would have to show up for court no matter what. Somebody doesn't have their facts straight. Any information you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
