Get Help after a Hit and Run Car Accident
In the immediate wake of an accident, you may feel panicked, disoriented, and maybe seriously injured. You might not be able or immediately focused on jotting down the license plate number of the person who hit you, or of taking a photo of their car. Suddenly, the driver of the car who was at fault in your car accident, after stopping for a moment, quickly speeds away from the scene of the crash. Not only are you in pain with a damaged vehicle, but now you’re also wondering how you’ll pay for all the damage and medical bills. This is the time when skilled legal representation can make all the difference. At the Bronx offices of the Kohn Law Firm, we know how to pursue personal injury claims caused by hit-and-run drivers. Contact us today for a free consultation after your New York hit-and-run accident.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage can Help
The State of New York requires all its drivers to carry minimum levels of insurance coverage. Included in the minimum basic policy is coverage for accidents with uninsured, underinsured, or unknown drivers. The amount of insurance coverage you have for these types of accidents is equal to the size of your policy coverage for accidents in which you were at fault (liability coverage).
Insurers will try to pay out as little as possible
That said, even when coverage is available, it isn’t always easy to obtain. Insurance companies are skeptical of claimants in hit-and-run crashes, and they will require greater evidentiary support before they’ll pay these claims. Beyond these additional hoops through which New York hit-and-run victims must jump, insurance companies will always try to offer the lowest settlement possible for victims’ claims. Having a lawyer on your side to fight for the settlement you deserve can make a world of difference. Our New York car accident victim attorneys at the Kohn Law Firm have been going to battle for Bronx accident victims for decades. Let us fight it out with the insurers while you focus on your health and recovery.
