Queens Hit-and-Run Lawyer
When your car is hit by another driver, it’s frustrating, to say the least. But when the responsible party flees the scene, you may not be sure of how to move forward. There’s no reason why you should have to pay for the damages the other driver caused, but if you don’t know who the liable party is, what should you do?
Our team at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP understands how overwhelming this situation can be. That’s why a Queens hit-and-run lawyer is here to offer assistance and help you file a claim.
Help Finding the Driver
If someone hits you and immediately leaves, you may feel as though all hope of finding the at-fault driver is lost. However, it is possible to locate the responsible party, and a Queens hit-and-run accident lawyer will have the resources and experience to get it done.
First, we’ll put you in touch with local authorities so you can work with them to open an investigation. Any information you have about the other driver will be valuable at this point, so if you recall the car’s make, model, color, or license plate number, share this information with police as soon as possible.
While the police are searching, your attorney can begin conducting his or her own investigation. This may involve talking to people who were at the scene of the crash. It may also involve requesting footage or photos from nearby cameras that happened to catch the collision on tape. All of this will help us as we try to find the perpetrator so you can file a claim against him or her.
Filing an Uninsured Motorists Claim
In some cases, you may end up finding the hit-and-run driver, only to find out he or she doesn’t have any insurance and won’t be able to provide you with compensation for the damages he or she caused. In other cases, the driver may not be located. Either way, you may need to file an uninsured motorist claim with your insurance company.
This may be a part of your coverage in your no-fault insurance policy. It provides protection for any damages brought on by another individual who doesn’t have adequate coverage to compensate you for your losses.
Unfortunately, the insurance company will likely try to put up a fight when you do this, which is why having an attorney can be so helpful. Having a lawyer on your side can ensure your rights as a policyholder are respected. That way, you can recover compensation for damages like medical costs, property damage, and more.
