NYC Hit & Run Accident Lawyers
Hit and run accidents when a vehicle flees the accident scene without first leaving its identity or insurance information can be especially challenging. In New York, auto policies include UM benefits, which are available in situations where the offending vehicle does not carry a liability policy or where the insurance cannot be ascertained.
For cases without any available insurance coverage, the New York State Insurance Law has instituted the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (MVAIC). Obtaining the benefits available through the MVAIC requires filing specific documents. Contact the attorneys at Shulman & Hill who will guide you through this process.
