Hit-And-Run Accidents

We have had clients injured in a hit and run accident who thought they didn’t have a case because there was no one to sue. This is wrong.

If you were injured in any of the following types of accidents by a motor vehicle that left the scene, you can have a case and we want to represent you.

Is Contact Required for Hit & Run Accidents?

We have successfully represented many clients in hit-and-run accidents where our client was cut off by a car and there was no contact between the vehicles. However, the law does require contact between you or your vehicle and another vehicle. The law also requires that a police accident report is filed within 24 hours of the hit and run accident.

We believe we are the only Personal Injury attorneys in New York who will take a hit and run case without contact.  If you were involved in a car accident or motorcycle accident where there was no contact between you, your motorcycle, or your car, please call us immediately.

Car Hit by a Vehicle Which Left the Scene

If you were a driver or passenger of a car and are injured in a car that was hit by another vehicle and left the scene, the insurance company insuring the car you were in will provide insurance coverage for your injuries. This is called uninsured coverage. Under some circumstances, there could be another insurance company that also provides coverage.

Motorcycle Hit by a Vehicle Which Left the Scene

If you were injured in a hit and run motorcycle accident and either you or your motorcycle came in contact with another vehicle which left the scene, you have uninsured insurance coverage from your own insurance policy which will pay you for your injuries.

While the law requires contact, we want to represent you even if there was no contact with another vehicle. We believe we are the only motorcycle attorneys in New York who will take a hit and run motorcycle accident case without contact.

Bicycle Hit by a Vehicle Which Left the Scene

If you were injured while riding a bicycle that was hit by a vehicle that fled the scene, you may have uninsured insurance coverage if you own a car or live with someone who owns a car.

If you do not own a car or live with someone who owns a car, we can file a claim for you for uninsured coverage with MVAIC, a New York State agency providing insurance coverage when there is none available. MVAIC has very short time deadlines, so please call us immediately!

Pedestrian Hit-And-Run Accident

If you were walking on a sidewalk, crossing the street, or walking anywhere in the street as a pedestrian hit by a car, truck, or motorcycle which left the scene, we want to represent you.

You will have $50,000 or more No-Fault insurance coverage to pay your medical bills, lost wages. You must file a no-fault application within 30 days of your accident unless you have a good excuse.

You can also get $25,000 or more for pain-and-suffering to compensate you for your injury.

Who’s Insurance Company Pays in a Hit and Run Accident?

If you own a car, your uninsured coverage will pay you for your pain and suffering claim.

If you don’t own a car but live with a family member or relative who owns a car with uninsured coverage, you can get more money and your family member’s insurance premium cannot be increased.

If you do not own a car or live with someone who owns a car, we can file a claim for you for uninsured coverage with MVAIC, a New York State agency providing insurance coverage when there is no insurance available. MVAIC has very short time deadlines, so please call us immediately!

You may have uninsured insurance coverage if you own a car or live with someone who owns a car.

Wrongful Death from a Hit-And-Run? NO Legal Fee for Estate Work

We provide free legal services for estate work in the event that someone is killed in a Hit and Run accident and the family doesn’t have or doesn’t want to spend the money to hire an estate lawyer.

If someone you know was killed because of a vehicle that left the scene, a New York no-fault death benefit may also be available in addition to money for wrongful death. We do not charge a legal fee to obtain the death benefit or getting the administrator appointed.
