Hit and Run Accidents | Recovering Compensation When You Cannot Identify the Responsible Driver
When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by the carelessness of another motorist, one of the first steps that you (and your lawyer) will take is to notify the negligent party’s insurance provider, so that you can seek compensation for your losses. But what if you are injured in a hit and run accident—are you simply out of luck? Are you limited to the coverage that your health insurance provides? The answer may be no. You want an experienced and knowledgeable attorney, though, who has handled these types of claims before. We can help.
At the law office of Sackstein Sackstein & Lee, LLP, we have fought for the rights of injured people in New York City and Long Island since 1952. We know the impact a personal injury can have on every aspect of your life. We will use our considerable knowledge, skill, experience and resources to help you pursue full and fair compensation for your losses. Our lawyers will listen carefully, so that we can learn the details of your case, as well as your needs, and can formulate the most effective strategy to get the outcome you want.
We offer a free initial consultation to anyone who has suffered a personal injury because of someone else’s carelessness or negligence. If we accept your case, there is no legal fee unless we collect money for you. To arrange a meeting, contact our office by e-mail or call us in Garden City at 516-248-2234 or in Flushing-Queens at 718-539-3100.
Helping You Get Full and Fair Compensation after a Hit and Run Accident
Because of our experience, we know that there are other potential sources of compensation for you after a hit and run accident:
- Your own automobile insurance policy—Most insurance companies offer coverage for uninsured or underinsured motorists, but the coverage is typically in the form of a rider, at an additional premium. If you elected to take this coverage, you may be able to obtain benefits when you can’t identify the other driver.
- The negligence of a third party—You may be able to establish that your accident was caused in part by the negligence of a third party. For example, another driver may have been involved, or there may have been roadway or signage defects that contributed to your accident.
When you hire us to help you seek damages after a hit and run accident, we will conduct a thorough investigation of your crash, traveling to the scene of the wreck, if necessary. We may work with expert witnesses, including accident reconstruction specialists, to put together the most compelling arguments for your full financial recovery.
