A hit and run accident is the act of causing or contributing to a motor vehicle accident and failing to stop and identify oneself afterward.
Despite New York State laws, which make it illegal to leave the scene of a car accident involving injury to a person or property, drivers often attempt to flee the scene of an accident. Last year there were over 280 deaths related to hit and run cases in New York City.
Our firm understands accidents involving hit and run drivers can cause more than just physical injuries. It is possible to experience severe emotional trauma, feelings of helplessness, PTSD, anxiety, and anger. Our support staff is here to assist you. We want to hear your story and help you recover your losses.
If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by a hit and run driver, you may be entitled to recover your losses even if the other driver is not found.
