Hit and Run Injury Accidents in New York
Pedestrians and motorists are often injured or killed as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle. If you have been injured or a loved one killed in a hit-and-run accident, it is important to contact an experienced attorney at Lozner & Mastropietro in Brooklyn who can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
If you are a pedestrian or an occupant in a car involved in an hit and run accident, a No-Fault claim should be filed with your insurance company. If you or your family members did not have any auto insurance policies at the time of the hit and run injury or accident, you may still file a claim for No-Fault benefits with the New York State Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC).
What Can I Recover From A Hit and Run Injury?
New York State No-Fault insurance provides reimbursement of a portion of your economic or financial losses, which includes medical expenses, lost earnings and other reasonable expenses such as prescriptions, travel expenses and household help. In addition to filing a No-Fault claim, pedestrians who suffer serious injuries as a result of a hit-and-run accident may be able to sue for economic as well as noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering by filing a claim with the New York State Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC).
