New York Hit And Run Accident Attorney
What To Do If You’re Hurt in a Car Accident in New York City
Being involved in a
motor vehicle accident is a frightening, painful, and frustrating experience. When the driver
that hits you leaves the scene of the accident, they are breaking the
law. Unfortunately, some hit and run drivers are never caught, which means
that you are left with limited options with which to bring your claim.
What is involved in the process after a hit-and-run?
When you have been injured in a hit and run in NYC:
- First, contact the police; if you have been seriously injured, call an ambulance
- Next, you should seek medical treatment for your injuries
- You will then have to file an unidentified motorist claim with your insurance company
- Your insurance company will compensate you for the damages to your vehicle,
as well as restitution for your pain and suffering
- The insurance company will do a lengthy investigation to make sure that
your claim is not fraudulent
For many accident victims, this process is extremely frustrating, because
their life has been turned upside down by an incredibly irresponsible
driver. Let an New York car accident attorney at
Belushin Law Firm handle the correspondence with your insurance company so that you can
fully recover without dealing with added stress.
Why is it important that you call the police right away?
If someone has fled the scene of an accident, they have committed a crime
and need to be reported immediately. The sooner you contact the police,
the better off you are, because they may be able to take statements from
witnesses that confirm your story or even find the driver that hit you.
If they are not able to identify the driver, you will at least have a
thorough report by the police that will help when you file a claim with
the insurance company.
