New York City Hit-and-Run Accident Lawyer
Hit-and-Run Accidents Are More Common Than You Think
Approximately 18 percent of fatal pedestrian accidents involve a driver who fled the scene. If you were hurt by a hit-and-run driver, you may think that you don’t have any options for financial recovery. But that may not be true.
If you were injured by a hit-and-run motorist, entrust the attorneys at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, to protect your rights. Our personal injury lawyers have helped hundreds of people hurt by hit and run motorists throughout New York.
NYC Car Accident Attorneys Helping You Get Back on Your Feet
Our auto accident lawyers can help you in several ways with a hit-and-run accident case such as:
- We can review your insurance policy to see if you have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage and can help you file a motor vehicle accident claim.
- We can review family members’ policies to identify alternative sources of insurance coverage.
- If the insurance company denies coverage questioning residency or a family relationship, we can take on that legal battle.
If evidence comes to light regarding who the driver was in the hit-and-run vehicle, we can help you get damages for negligent driving. Those damages can cover medical bills, lost income and compensation for pain and suffering.
Additionally, hit-and-run defendants can be found guilty of a crime and then be required to pay fines and possibly serve jail time.
We work hard to help you get full compensation for:
- current and future medical bills
- rehabilitation costs
- lost wages and
- pain and suffering
- We also pursue a full financial recovery for families with fatal accident claims.
Options Are Available to Help You Gain Financial Relief
If you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident, you may be able to secure compensation through your own uninsured/underinsured insurance coverage. If you don’t own a car and was hit as a pedestrian, you may be able to bring an uninsured motorist claim through a household member’s insurance.
Another option for people who don’t own cars is to make a claim with the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC), which provides compensation for bodily injury to qualified victims of uninsured motorists. Our partners each have more than 25 years of experience handling hit-and-run accident claims throughout New York. We know how to review complex policies in pursuit of the compensation you are entitled.
