Fatal Hit-and-Run

If you have landed on this Web page after losing a family member in a fatal pedestrian accident or some other type of traffic accident, Caesar, Napoli & Spivak PLLC, extends our sincere sympathies.

We have worked closely with many families whose loved ones had been killed in car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian accidents. We understand how disorienting the loss of your husband, wife, son, daughter, mother, father, sister or brother can be to the whole family. We understand your need to grieve and regroup. Our wrongful death attorneys are prepared to get an investigation underway promptly and discreetly, with the goal of recovering compensation for the loss of your family member.

Fighting For Full Compensation

After a fatality in the family, we know that you face financial losses as well as emotional pain. Our fatal hit-and-run lawyers in New York work to bring relief to grieving families to cover:

  • Final medical bills
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost wages
  • Acknowledgement of loss of companionship

The loss of your loved one leaves a hole in your family. If a negligent motorist or other negligent party caused or contributed to the fatal accident, legal action can help you cope by bringing you appropriate compensation. No monetary recovery will take the place of your loved one, but with financial worries lessened, you can move forward to a new phase of life with support.

Finding Money When The Driver Got Away

Ideally, the negligent motorist who struck and killed your loved one should be found and held accountable. This may not be possible. A fatal hit-and-run accident can present unique challenges when police or investigators fail to identify the wrongdoer. There may be other sources of compensation for your family such as:

  • The deceased person's homeowners insurance
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance
  • Life insurance policies
  • Accidental injury and death insurance policies

Do not assume that making a life insurance policy claim will be a simple process. Many clients have required our assistance to compel insurance companies to make good on insurance policies, including auto insurance and life insurance policies.
