September 6, 2012

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS PHYSICAL THERAPY, P.C. AS ASSIGNEE OF GLORIA CASTILLO, RESPONDENT,
v.
MVAIC, APPELLANT.

Appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Queens County (Rudolph E. Greco, Jr., J.), entered November 18, 2010, deemed from a judgment of the same court entered December 16, 2010 (see CPLR 5501 [c]).

Brooklyn Hgts. Physical Therapy, P.C v MVAIC

Appellate Term, Second Department

Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.

This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.

Decided on September 6, 2012

PRESENT: PESCE, P.J., RIOS and ALIOTTA, JJ

The judgment, entered pursuant to the November 19, 2010 order granting plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and denying defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint, awarded plaintiff the principal sum of $1,105.64.

ORDERED that the judgment is reversed, without costs, the order entered November 18, 2010 is vacated, plaintiff's motion for summary judgment is denied and defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is granted.

In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, defendant Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (sued herein as MVAIC) appeals from an order of the Civil Court entered November 18, 2010 which granted plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and denied defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint. A judgment was subsequently entered, from which the appeal is deemed to have been taken (see CPLR 5501 [c]).

Since MVAIC established that there had been no timely filing of a notice of claim and that leave had not been sought to file a late notice of claim (see Insurance Law § 5208 [a], [c]), plaintiff's assignor is not a covered person (see Insurance Law § 5221 [b] [2]) and, thus, a condition precedent to plaintiff's right to apply for payment of no-fault benefits from MVAIC has not been satisfied (Five Boro Psychological Servs., P.C. v MVAIC, 35 Misc 3d 133[A], 2012 NY Slip Op 50751[U] [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2012]; M.N.M. Med. Health Care, P.C. v MVAIC, 22 Misc 3d 128[A], 2009 NY Slip Op 50041[U] [App Term, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2009]). In light of the foregoing, we reach no other issue.

Accordingly, the judgment is reversed, the order entered November 18, 2010 is vacated, plaintiff's motion for summary judgment is denied and defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is granted.
