A: You could try reaching out to the New York Liquidation Bureau. On their website www.nylb.org, contact information is listed as 180 Maiden Lane, New York, NY 10038-4925, telephone 212-341-6400. You could also see if the New York State Department of Financial Services (formerly the NYS Insurance Department) could offer guidance. If that doesn't work, you could try the state government offices at Albany for further guidance. Good luck

A: I agree with my colleague - contact the New York Liquidation Bureau and see who took over claims for your previous insurance carrier. Also, the statute of limitations in New York is three (3) years. If the incident took place more than three (3) years ago it would be barred by the statute of limitations.
