Long Island Single Vehicle Accident Lawyer | Single Vehicle Collision Attorney Elmhurst, NY

Experienced Single Vehicle Collision Attorney in Elmhurst, NY Helps Victims of Accidents Involving One Vehicle Seek Compensation in Suffolk County, Nassau County, and Throughout Long Island 

Motor vehicle accidents don’t always involve two or more vehicles colliding. There are instances when only one vehicle is involved in an accident. For example, the car may roll over, or crash into a barrier or telephone pole. When this happens, the accident is classified as a single-vehicle accident. Seeking compensation for these cases is often complex, as establishing liability in a single-vehicle accident may not be easy to prove. If you have been involved in a single car accident due to someone else’s negligence, you should contact The Harrison Law Group, P.C. for representation by an experienced and skilled Long Island single vehicle accident lawyer today. 

Just because a single vehicle is involved in an accident does not mean that these accidents are not serious. These accidents can be just as dangerous as accidents involving multiple vehicles. They can even prove to be fatal accidents, depending on the circumstances of the incident. If the accident was a result of the negligence or reckless actions of another party, the team at The Harrison Law Group, P.C. will work to recover the compensation you deserve on your behalf. Our team is committed to defending the rights of accident victims. We have a reputation for securing sizable settlements and verdicts. We will fight to secure a favorable outcome in your case.

  • Reckless or aggressive driving by another driver e.g. speeding or driving on the wrong side of the road 
  • Defective vehicle resulting in mechanical failure of the vehicle, e.g. brake failure due to defective brake parts
  • Dangerous road conditions such as inadequate lighting on the road, loose road surfaces and improper design of the road 
  • Obstacles on the road e.g. construction debris

Frequently Asked Questions about Single Vehicle Accidents on Long Island

Do I need a lawyer for a single-vehicle accident? 

Single vehicle accidents may seem straightforward, but they can be complex. Insurers will do all they can to avoid paying compensation to the victims of an accident in order to avoid losses. If you have been seriously injured or suffered property damage as a result of a single vehicle accident, you should contact The Harrison Law Group, P.C. to schedule an appointment for a consultation with an experienced single vehicle collision attorney in Elmhurst, NY. Our team will investigate your case and develop the evidence required to support your claim. We will fight on your behalf to recover the compensation that is rightly yours. 

What should I do after a single car accident?

If you have been involved in a single-vehicle accident, the steps you take after the accident will affect your ability to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages. The following are some steps you can take to protect your right to recover compensation for the accident.

1. Check to see if anyone is injured. If anyone is seriously injured and requires emergency care, contact emergency services. This will ensure that both an ambulance and the police are dispatched to the scene of the accident.

2. Contact the police even if there are no serious injuries. It is important to report the accident to the police as soon as possible. The police report will be a vital piece of evidence in proving your claim.

3. Seek medical attention. Even if you don’t think you are seriously injured, it is important to have a medical examination done as soon as possible after the accident. You may be in shock and this may prevent you from noticing the symptoms of your injuries. A medical examination will reveal any injuries suffered and ensure you receive the medical attention you need to avoid complications. Your medical report will also be a crucial piece of evidence in supporting your claim.

4. Document the scene of the accident. This includes taking photos of the vehicle, your surroundings, your injuries, and anything else that is relevant, e.g. road damage. These will be used as evidence.

5. Take down the witness’s contact details as well as the contacts of any other party involved in the accident.

6. Keep track of your expenses. Store receipts such as medical bills, transportation bills, car repair invoices, and any other expenses related to the accident. Record any wages you have lost during your period of recovery.

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.

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.
