Call a Hit-and-Run Attorney in New York City or New Jersey

When you live in the city, most days you take the crowds and traffic for granted. But that can change in an instant if you’re the victim of a hit-and-run. Suddenly, you look around for witnesses—anyone who can tell you they saw the car’s license plate or description—and it’s not always easy to find the information you need.

No matter where your accident occurred, from the Bronx to Staten Island, NY, a hit-and-run lawyer is your best ally when you’ve been hurt by a reckless vehicle. A hit-and-run attorney can help you whether you are a pedestrian or if your vehicle was struck.

Do I Have a Case After a Hit & Run?

Yes. While it may seem hopeless after a dangerous hit-and-run accident, there are plenty of ways that you can receive compensation for your accident. Our experienced hit-and-run attornies can work with you to secure financial compensation for you. We follow several avenues of information gathering to help you find your assailant and help you get the compensation you deserve. Our lawyers work with law enforcement agencies to help search for the driver who struck you. Then, we investigate the circumstances of the accident to help establish the cause and fault. Next, our team can pursue legal action on your behalf to hold them accountable. We work with accident and injury experts to determine the worth of your case and to build a solid legal strategy.

Insurance and Criminal Proceedings

Hit-and-run cases go beyond finding and suing the driver. Car and medical insurance companies are likely going to be involved in the case as well. Our team can help you navigate the tricks insurance companies employ to limit payouts. We can help you negotiate for proper compensation from them. Additionally, there are criminal consequences for hit-and-run accidents. This can lead to complex criminal proceedings for your case. Our dedicated and experienced attorneys can assist you through the whole process. Because these cases are often very complex, it can be difficult to navigate the insurance and criminal aspects by yourself. At D’Agostino & Associates, our team is ready to help you every step of the way.

Get the Answers You Need Now

No matter your level of injuries, we take your hit-and-run case seriously. Because we want the best possible result for you, we ask a series of important questions and follow through in a timely way.

For instance:

  • Can you identify the vehicle make/model or color? If not, were there witnesses?
  • Do you remember all or part of the license plate number? If not, perhaps witnesses can help.
  • Do you own a vehicle? If so, your lawyer can file an uninsured motorist claim.

Many hit-and-run victims are in shock, so they’re unable to provide many details after an accident. This does not mean you have no case; it merely means your legal team will have to pursue different avenues to get you the compensation you need for medical costs and lost work income.

If we receive no information on the car’s color, model/make, or license plate, we’ll use other means to a positive outcome. We use a variety of methods to gather information and help you get results.

Don’t assume you have no case. You may be entitled to compensation for your hit-and-run case. D’Agostino & Associates P.C. has offices in New York and New Jersey. We’re available 24/7 at 1-888-245-2924. Additionally, you can reach us through our contact us page.
