Nassau County Car Accident Statistics

According to the New York State Department of Health, traffic crash-related injuries are the 2nd leading cause of hospitalization and injury-related emergency department visits in Nassau County. Nearly half (42%) of the Nassau County residents who are hospitalized after a traffic accident are diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Every month car accidents in Nassau County result in:

  • 7 deaths

  • 111 hospitalizations

  • 1,028 trips to the emergency department

On average, each year, car accidents result in 81 deaths and over 12,000 emergency department visits in Nassau County. The cost is tremendous on both injured parties and state and local governments. The Department of Health estimates that annually traffic accidents cause $77.6 million in hospitalization charges. 

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

In New York, you only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages based on personal injury or wrongful death. New York law requires that a person file a personal injury lawsuit within three (3) years from the date of the accident. If a loved one is killed as a result of their injuries sustained in a traffic accident, the family has two (2) years from the date of their death to file a wrongful death claim.  

It is imperative to act quickly after a car accident. While the statute of limitations may appear to allow an ample amount of time to file a lawsuit, car accidents involving serious injuries may take months to investigate. 

Contacting a lawyer immediately after the collision can help to ensure that you file within the statutory requirement and that you receive maximum compensation based on your injuries.

Will Insurance Pay Me For My Injuries?

Individuals injured in car accidents often believe that the insurance company is on their side and will offer fair and full compensation. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Insurance adjusters will try to get you to settle early for the least amount of money possible after your accident. They are not on your side.

After a car accident, you should never (without first consulting with an attorney):

  • Speak to the insurance company;

  • Sign anything related to your accident;

  • Accept a settlement that does not cover your losses;

  • Fail to get emergency medical care; or

  • Stop seeking treatment on the recommendation of the insurance adjuster.

An insurance representative may try to convince you that your injuries are not that serious or that you are not entitled to seek damages beyond the no-fault insurance limits. An experienced Nassau County car accident lawyer can help you understand your rights and stand up to the insurance company to ensure that you get the recovery you deserve.

What Is My Case Worth?

Determining how much your case is worth depends on a number of factors, including the cause of the crash, the extent of your injuries, and whether you were partially to blame. In most cases, an injury victim that is not represented by an attorney is unlikely to receive the compensation that they need to fully recover.

You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills

  • Cost of future treatment 

  • Rehabilitation and therapy

  • Vehicle repairs

  • Lost wages and future loss of earning capacity

  • Pain and suffering

Hiring a lawyer is the best way to ensure that you receive the largest recovery possible. Our Nassau County car accident lawyers will conduct an independent investigation to determine the full value of your case and all of your legal options. 

What If I Was Partially to Blame?

In New York, you are still able to collect damages if you are partially responsible for your injuries. An insurance representative may try to convince you that because of your contributory negligence, you are unable to receive compensation. This is not true. Do not allow the insurance company to deny your claim or downplay your injuries without consulting with an attorney.

(New York Times, 2016) (Source: https://driving-tests.org/)

Driving under the Influence – New York has established severe penalties for DUI. The reason for the severity is not only to punish people who have been arrested for driving drunk, but to set an example to those who haven’t yet. That way, if they are ever in a position where they are considering drunk driving, they will think better of it. Penalties increase for repeat offenders. (Source: https://www.idrivesafely.com/)
