New York City Hit and Run Accident AttorneyA hit and run accident is where the operator of another motor vehicle collides with another car or pedestrian and then leave the scene of the accident without reporting the accident to the appropriate authorities. A hit and run accident can be a serious crime. Victims of such accidents are often left with serious and permanent injuries, medical expenses and lost wages.
Since 1987, Mr. DiMartini has helped people injured in car accidents throughout the New York City Metropolitan area.When the perpetrator of the hit and run accident is located, the claim on behalf the injured victim may proceed in accordance with a typical car accident claim. Many times, however, the wrongdoer cannot be located. In this case, the person hurt in the hit and run accident may still be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation.
If the injured person has the appropriate uninsured motorist coverage on a car he or she owns, or on a car that a family member that he or she resides with owns, the injured party may make a claim directly against your insurance company for the compensation you would have otherwise been entitled to from the hit and run car.
If, however, the person hurt in the accident does not have the appropriate uninsured motorist coverage, he or she may still be entitled to uninsured motorist compensation by making a claim against the appropriate State Agency that insures against such losses.
In New York State, the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC) is the agency that provides certain benefits and compensation to victims of hit and run accidents.
There are, however, strict time limitations that must be complied with in order to make such a claim. For example, the accident must be reported to the police within 24 hours of the accident. There are also time sensitive claim forms that must be filed, or the injured person will lose his or her rights to such benefits.
It is, therefore, important to immediately report the accident to the police and contact a competent New York personal injury lawyer to protect your rights.
