Car Accident Attorneys Guiding You Through Your Claim
In addition to the injuries and damage done in any car accident, a hit-and-run accident creates the additional task of finding coverage when the person responsible flees the scene. In some cases, you may be able to track the negligent party down, but usually the person fled because he or she did not have the insurance coverage needed to pay for your costs.
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we advocate for victims of hit-and-run accidents. In addition to thoroughly investigating the accident to determine if the person can be found, our attorneys help you piece together the coverage you need to pay your medical and repair bills.
Injured in a hit-and-run accident? We offer free case evaluations so we can discuss your situation.
New York requires that auto insurance policies carry at least $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident in uninsured motorist coverage. This means that if you were hurt in an accident where the other driver did not have coverage or fled the scene, your insurance will cover that person's liability up to that amount.
Pursuing Compensation Through Trial Preparation
Insurance companies may try to fight to provide the amount of money you need to cover all of your expenses. It is important that you have a skilled attorney on your side who thoroughly understands uninsured motorist coverage and how to obtain the compensation you need.
If you don't own a vehicle, you may still be able to obtain coverage for the accident through the insurance policy of someone that you reside with or through the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation, a state entity set up to provide a source of compensation for people who have been injured by uninsured drivers.
