Long Island Hit & Run Accident Lawyer

Injured in a hit & run on Long Island?

Some drivers are so irresponsible that when they cause an injury accident, they don't stop to render aid or even to contact emergency personnel. When someone is injured in a car accident, those involved are required by law to stop and render assistance. Sometimes, when a driver is intoxicated, reckless, or speeding, he or she may leave the scene of an accident in an attempt to avoid legal repercussions. Their failure to stop and call 911 or the police can lead to the victim suffering more severe injuries than they would have had the negligent party been responsible and called emergency assistance.

These cases are termed "criminal negligence," and if law enforcement finds the hit and run driver, which is a frequent result, a lawsuit can be filed against the negligent party for compensation for damages. These damages include compensation for medical bills, anticipated medical costs, lost wages, and punitive damages, due to the criminal aspect of the incident. It is critical that you contact a Long Island injury lawyer at once if you or a loved one has been the victim in a hit and run accident.

Many individuals have insurance that will provide compensation for the injuries and other damages suffered in such accidents, should the negligent party not be found and arrested for the crime.

Medical costs can easily overwhelm and individual or a family, and we at The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. strive to ensure that you won't have to suffer any more because of someone else's reckless or negligent behavior.
