Common Injuries

Car accidents come in many different forms, they may include rear-end collisions, failure to yield accidents, hit and runs, parking lot accidents, or head-on collisions, side impact and rollover collisions, and they may involve pedestrians, teen drivers, rental cars, trucks, motorcycles or other vehicles on the road.

Under New York law, car drivers are entitled to compensation for medical expenses and lost wages no matter who is at fault–this is part of the no-fault insurance all drivers are required to have. You, or a Long Island car accident lawyer on your behalf, are only able to bring a legal action in court to recover compensation for pain and suffering if you have sustained a serious or permanent injury.

A “serious injury” is defined by New York law as one that results in one of the following:

  • Death
  • Dismemberment or significant disfigurement
  • A fracture
  • Permanent loss of use of a body organ, member, function or system
  • Permanent consequential limitation of use of a body organ or member
  • Significant limitation of use of a body function or system
  • Medically determined injury or impairment that changes your life during the first 90 out of 180 days following the car accident

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.
