Attorney Ed Lemmo and his team at the Lemmo Law Firm recently represented a client who was injured after being rear ended by a hit and run driver of a car on a highway in NYC.

He sustained multiple injuries including some broken fingers, ligament damage, and road rash. Fortunately, no surgery was required. However, his insurance policy provided minimal insurance coverage for a hit and run driver of another vehicle. In this case, the police noted that this particular hit and run may have been committed by someone in possession of an illegal car with illegal plates or a “ghost car.”

A multi-agency task force is working toward identifying and removing “ghost cars,” which are cars that are untraceable by traffic cameras and toll readers due to forged or altered license plates.

Governor Kathy Hochul of NY and Major Adams have launched this city-state task force as there is a rise in ghost car related incidents.

“We are sending a clear message: if you attempt to alter your license plate to avoid traffic cameras and toll readers, you will be caught,” Hochul said. “The safety of New Yorkers is my top priority and in partnership with Mayor Adams and law enforcement, we will swiftly remove elusive vehicles from our roads.”

Officials say these cars are often unregistered, uninsured or even stolen.

While No Fault Insurance is not available to motorcycle riders, proof of serious injury from the accident is not a condition to obtain money at trial, under New York law.

As a result, Lemmo and his legal team were able to win their client’s case.
