Causes of Long Island Car Accidents

Many car accidents are caused by negligence, particularly driver inattention. The increased use of cell phones and other electronic devices has increased distracted driving exponentially. Even looking away for a few seconds can have life-changing consequences.

Leading causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted Driving - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that every day around 8 people are killed in accidents involving a distracted driver in the United States.
  • Alcohol - Driving under the influence of alcohol is a problem throughout the United States. The most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that approximately 28% of all fatal traffic accidents involve alcohol-impaired driving.
  • Speeding - According to NHTSA, speed is a contributing factor in 26% of all traffic fatalities. Speed-related traffic collisions are also a primary cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Other common causes of traffic collisions include failure to yield, following too closely, aggressive driving, fatigued driving, and operator inexperience.

What to Do After a Traffic Collision

If you are involved in a collision, the first thing you should do is check whether you or anyone else is injured. Under New York law, you are required to notify the police immediately if you are involved in an accident where someone is injured or killed. In addition, you must file a motorist accident report with the New York Department of Motor Vehicles

After contacting law enforcement, if you are able, you should:

    • Take pictures of any damage to your vehicle;
    • Exchange information with any other parties;
    • Identify any eyewitnesses to the collision;
    • Seek medical treatment if you are not taken in an ambulance; and
    • Contact an experienced Long Island car accident lawyer.

It is essential to be careful what you say after a car accident. An insurance adjuster may try to downplay your injuries. At Ajlouny Injury Law, we can help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. We have recovered millions on behalf of injury victims throughout Long Island and New York City.

Damages in Long Island Car Accident Cases

Since New York is a no-fault state, you will generally need to go through your own insurance company to receive compensation. If you are not seriously injured, you will be limited to economic (out-of-pocket) losses. 

Depending on the case, you might be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future earning capacity;
  • Cost of long-term care and rehabilitation;
  • Property damage; and
  • Pain and suffering (in cases with serious injuries as defined by statute).

If you are severely injured, you might be entitled to pursue additional compensation for things like pain and suffering through a personal injury lawsuit. It is crucial, regardless of your injuries, to discuss your case with an experienced attorney prior to accepting a settlement from an insurance representative.
