Hit-And-Run Accidents: What Are Your Rights?

A hit-and-run accident left one person dead and three more injured in Long Island last week. This was a tragic reminder that bad things can happen to good people and we are never safe from the negligence of others.

In the aftermath of this accident, we have an important question for you: do you understand what your rights are in the event you or a loved one is hurt in a hit-and-run accident or by a driver who lacks adequate insurance to cover the costs of your injuries and property damage?

You should, and this post can make sure you do.

The most important thing you can do now is make sure you have adequate insurance coverage. This includes having uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your auto policy. This coverage can provide you with the financial resources you need to cover medical costs, lost earnings and other expenses after an accident, even if you are hit by a driver who leaves the scene or doesn't have insurance.

Even with that coverage, you can benefit from an attorney who makes sure the insurance company treats you right after an accident. That's where our personal injury attorneys at Block O'Toole & Murphy come in. We can make sure you have access to the financial resources your policy is supposed to provide, and hold negligent parties accountable.
