Our East Meadow office is right on Hempstead Turnpike and, in addition to the many calls we receive, we have witnessed too many intersection accidents up and down the street. It’s no surprise that these accidents are amongst the most common throughout Long Island—on main streets like Sunrise Highway and Old Country Road as well as local streets throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
Whether you were injured in East Meadow, or another town in Long Island, we can help.
Intersection accidents involve cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, buses, trucks or bicycles, they are generally caused by the following:
- Failure to stop at a stop sign or red light
- Failure to yield right of way when there is no signal
- Turning left without enough time to avoid oncoming traffic
- Right on red without yielding to an oncoming car
- Sudden breaking
These accidents can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, spine and neck injuries, concussions, whiplash, internal injuries, traumatic brain injuries and even death. It is important if you are injured in an accident, even if you don’t think it is serious, to see a doctor and get checked out.
“Who is going to pay for my injuries?”
Under New York’s no-fault insurance laws, if you are not seriously injured, your no-fault insurance will pay up to $50,000 to cover your medical bills and lost wages. However if you are seriously injured—this includes broken bones, permanent injury to an organ, loss of fetus and significant disfigurement—you can sue beyond the limits of no-fault and also sue for pain and suffering. Our offices can discuss your accident in a free consultation and help you determine the right course of action.
