Hit-And-Run Accidents: Overview

Driving conditions in New York City are challenging even for skillful drivers. Congestion and a hurried pace of life regularly lead to accidents — and sometimes drivers at fault simply drive away. Leaving the scene of an accident is against the law. When someone is injured and the responsible driver gets away, it can be challenging to recover compensation in the usual ways.

Pedestrians and bicyclists are especially vulnerable to the possibility of hit-and-run accidents. Drivers who are arrested after hit-and-run accidents sometimes claim they did not realize they had hit someone. Hit-and-run accidents involving two or more vehicles often involve an unlicensed driver or an inebriated driver.

Finding The Missing Vehicle And Driver Should Be A Priority

Regardless of the specifics of the accident, a hit-and-run accident should be of special interest to law enforcement agents as well as to insurers of people who were injured or lost family members. Finding the driver who fled the scene needs to be a top priority.

Unfortunately, police do not always succeed in finding the responsible driver after a hit-and-run accident. When The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny represents people injured in such accidents, attorneys of the firm initiate prompt investigations. Locating the negligent drivers as soon as possible is an important goal. Video surveillance footage is often helpful in such cases.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage May Provide Financial Resources For The Injured

If the driver who fled is never found, the injured person’s uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage may provide a source of compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. On the other hand, if the responsible driver is located, the evidence presented in his or her criminal case may strengthen the injury claim or lawsuit on behalf of any injured party: a bicycle rider, pedestrian, or occupant of another vehicle.

With years of experience, countless successful outcomes, and a vigorous work ethic, the attorneys at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny are prepared to represent you zealously if you were injured in a hit-and-run car or truck accident. Our lawyers will determinedly pursue the compensation you need to pay medical bills, reimburse lost wages, and acknowledge your pain and suffering.
