Car accidents occur on a daily basis in New York. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide you information and help you consider your options if you have been injured in a car accident, even if the auto accident was caused by a hit and run driver.
In order to provide compensation for innocent victims of certain types of accidents caused by uninsured or otherwise financially irresponsible motorists, the New York State legislature passed the Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation Law (MVAIC). Examples of accidents that fall under MVAIC are those caused by:
- Uninsured out-of-state motor vehicles;
- Unidentified hit and run drivers;
- Uninsured New York motor vehicles;
- Stolen motor vehicles;
- Motor vehicles operated without the consent of the owner;
Drivers who cause hit and run car accidents can be motivated to leave the scene, by any number of reasons, including alcohol and drunk driving, inexperience, negligence, carelessness, and recklessness. These drivers flee the scene of the accident and leave injured victims with no recourse against them. However, thanks to MVAIC, victims of hit and run drivers may be able to receive compensation for serious bodily injuries sustained as a result of the accident.
Whether compensation under MVAIC is available depends on whether you are considered a qualified victim. Therefore, you will want to discuss your motor vehicle accident claim with an experienced New York personal injury lawyer.
