What should I do if I am injured in a hit and run accident?

David Dinkins, the former New York City mayor, was recently sued by a bicyclist who claimed Dinkins struck him while driving in Manhattan and drove away.  The lawsuit was filed in the state Supreme Court in Manhattan.  In it, the 32-year-old bicyclist claims to have suffered serious injuries when 89-year-old Dinkins hit him as he was in the intersection, but instead of waiting for police to arrive or assessing the bicyclist’s condition, Dinkins kept on driving.

The former mayor has issued a public statement denouncing the claims.  Dinkins stated he was driving his sick wife to the hospital at the time of the accident and did not realize he had been involved in a crash until a bystander informed him about a half-block later.
