Hit-and-run accidents, often involving pedestrians, happen at an alarming frequency. It would be inherently unfair to the victim of a hit-and-run if
compensation was unavailable simply because a negligent driver decided to flee the scene of the accident rather than stop. The Motor Vehicle Accident Indemnification Corporation (“MVAIC”) was created to address this issue. MVAIC is available to the victims of hit-and-run accidents who do not have any other motor vehicle insurance to compensate them for their pain and suffering or pay for their medical expenses. If you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident, it is important to contact a New York personal injury attorney immediately, so your rights are preserved. MVAIC has strict procedural requirements and deadlines that must be complied with, such as filing a police report, filling out the proper forms, and filing your claim within a certain time period. We can guide you through the process, preserve your rights, and get you the compensation you deserve.
