Big Potholes Causing Damage and Injuries throughout Long Island

Goldstein and Bashner | Long Island Pothole Damage

The potholes are everywhere and some are huge! We’ve seen them on the Northern State, Sunrise Highway, Hempstead Turnpike, Middle County Road and nearly every other main road on Long Island.

According the AAA of New York, there has been a notable increase in calls for flat tires and other roadside assistance associated with potholes. Likewise in our offices, we have seen an increase in car accident calls due to potholes on poor road conditions. “We’ve gotten several calls just from Hempstead Turnpike alone,” said partner Robert Bashner.

So What Can You Do?

It is important to find out if the road is overseen by New York State, a county, a town, city or village. Contacting the town where the incident took place can help you find out, if you are unsure.

Next, you should contact the appropriate municipality as soon as possible (most have a timeframe of 90 days to file a notice of claim). There are different requirements from town to town and between Nassau and Suffolk Counties of what proof needs to be submitted so it is important to check with the appropriate Highway Division/Public Works Department.

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others.The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
