NEW YORK CITY AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

HIT & RUN ACCIDENTS

The New York City auto accident attorneys at Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP use every resource at our disposal to fight for the rights of accident victims who have been injured or killed by hit-and-run drivers. Hit-and-run accidents in New York City often involve a drunk driver, an unlicensed or uninsured driver, an unauthorized driver of a borrowed or stolen car, a driver fleeing from police or a driver embroiled in an aggressive driving incident such as road rage.

Bicyclists and pedestrians are some of the most likely accident victims of hit-and-run drivers. A report by the U.S. Department of Transportation found almost 1 in 5 pedestrian and bicycle accident fatalities was caused by a hit-and-run driver. Failure to stop after an accident — and an at-fault driver’s failure to provide assistance and ensure that medical help is called following an accident — is not only grossly negligent, but can increase the risk of serious injury or death.

What Is Considered A Hit & Run Accident?

A hit and run accident refers to any type of vehicle accident in which a driver who is involved in a collision flees the scene without stopping to identify himself or report the incident. Leaving the scene of a vehicle accident without stopping can lead to serious legal consequences. Unfortunately, many hit and run accidents also result in catastrophic injuries for victims. If you have been involved in a hit and run incident, you should not hesitate to contact our New York City auto accident attorneys.

What Information Should I Note Following A Hit & Run Accident?

Victims of hit and run accidents should try to note any of the following details to increase their chances of recovering compensation:

  • The color, model or make of the car that caused the accident
  • The license plate number of the car (even a portion of the number may prove helpful)
  • Any physical characteristics of the driver
  • The exact location of the accident
  • Which direction the driver fled

Our New York City auto accident attorneys aggressively pursue injury cases against hit-and-run drivers. Our team can assist in investigating the accident and the extent of your injuries.
