What to Do After a Passenger Vehicle Accident in Long Island

We at The Harrison Law Group, P.C. understand that accident victims experience shock immediately after an accident. However, the steps you take after the accident will influence your ability to recover compensation for your injuries. You should therefore take steps to improve your chances of recovering full compensation. Some important steps to take as a passenger involved in an accident include: 

1. Contacting emergency services 

If you or someone else is seriously injured you should contact emergency services immediately. This will ensure that both medical services and law enforcement are dispatched to the accident scene. 

2. Report the accident 

If there are no injuries requiring immediate medical attention, you should contact law enforcement to report the accident. The report from the law enforcement officers will play a vital role as evidence in the claim.

3. Document the scene of the accident 

If you are able to, document the scene of the accident. This includes taking photos of the vehicles, the road conditions, and your injuries. These images will be vital for supporting your claim. 

4. Speak with witnesses 

If there are witnesses at the scene of the accident, talk to them. Ask them for their contact information and if they would be willing to provide evidence when the time comes. Witness accounts play an important role in determining who is liable for the accident. 

5. Seek medical treatment 

It is important to seek medical treatment for your injuries as soon as possible after the accident. This is vital even if your injuries don’t seem very serious. Some injuries will become more obvious hours or even days after the accident. A medical examination immediately after the accident will reveal any injuries. It will ensure that you get the treatment you need. Your medical report will also be used as evidence to support your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions about Passenger Car Accidents in Long Island 

How much can I recover for damages if I was passenger when I was injured in a car accident in Long Island?

State laws in New York do not place a cap on the amount that can be recovered as compensation for a motor vehicle accident. There is therefore no limit to the amount of money that you can recover as compensation for an accident if you were a passenger during the accident. However, the specific amount you recover will depend on various factors including the policy limits as well as the damages you suffered as a result of the accident.

It is important to consult with an experienced Long Island passenger car accident lawyer in order to determine how much you can recover as compensation. Our experienced attorneys will review the circumstances of your case for free and provide you with an approximation of what we believe would be just compensation for your damages. We will fight to help you recover just compensation for your injuries.

Who can I hold liable for my injuries if I was injured as a passenger in a car accident?

New York is a no-fault state. This means that you will first need to seek insurance from your own insurance policy when involved in a car accident. If you were a passenger in the vehicle when the accident occurred, you may not have car insurance. You can, however, file a no-fault claim against the insurance policy of the owner of the car you were in at the time of the accident. If this does not cover all of your damages, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party to recover even more compensation. 

The Harrison Law Group, P.C. offers you the opportunity to consult with an experienced passenger injury attorney in Elmhurst, NY from our law firm for free. We will review your case and explain your options to you. We will provide you with guidance and representation in pursuing compensation so you receive the financial support you need.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our attorneys and staff are competent, compassionate, and committed to seeking the maximum fair and appropriate compensation for all of our clients. We fight to win, not to quickly settle and move on to the next case. Our firm will make sure that you are properly advised of all of your options while giving you the proper legal advice to make the right decision for yourself and your family.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:

Car Accidents

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.

Truck Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.

Motorcycle Accidents

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Premises Liability

An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.

Dog Bite

Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.

Slip and Fall

A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.

Construction Accidents

An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death

Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.

Medical Malpractice

When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.
