Hit & Run Accidents
Experienced Greenwich Car Accident Attorney - (203) 718-4002
Hit and run accidents can be devastating and it can be difficult to prove
that your accident was due to another driver. It is critical to contact
the police after a hit and run accident, since the police report may be
your only evidence that supports your claim. Our Greenwich
auto accident lawyers at
Ivey Barnum & O'Mara, LLC can help you ensure that the other driver is held responsible for your accident.

If it is possible, law enforcement should work to discover the identity
of the other driver and bring them to justice. If the other driver is
found, it is likely that you will be able to bring a claim against them
for your pain and suffering. If the driver is not found, however, you
may have other options.
In New York, it is required that every driver carries Supplementary Uninsured/Underinsured
Motorist (SUM) coverage. If you cannot recover compensation from the other
driver or their insurance company, you can make a claim against your own
insurance company, using your SUM coverage. There are time restrictions
on these types of claims, however, so it is important to start your claim
quickly. It is also necessary to prove that you have sustained serious
injuries to receive compensation from your insurance company. An experienced
car accident attorney can help you document and prove your injuries when
you file your claim.
