Causes of Car Crash Injuries in Long Island City

When you are running errands, going to work, driving to see friends, or taking an Uber, you probably do not think about the risks you face the moment you step inside a car. Depending on the severity, being involved in a Long Island City car accident could alter the course of your life in seconds. Here are some of the most common mistakes that can lead to an accident:

  • Speeding or otherwise failing to obey the rules of the road
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving. This has become an increasingly significant problem due to the popularity of smartphones.
  • Sleep-deprived driving (which can be as dangerous as drunk driving)
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Vehicle defects

Any of these situations can occur when you least expect it. Hiring the right car accident lawyer in Long Island City can help you file a claim and pursue the compensation you may be entitled to after enduring an accident.

Who is at Fault in a Car Accident in Long Island City?

After an accident, some victims may blame themselves. Although it usually takes two or more cars for a collision to happen, one driver may be more at fault than others involved.

In an effort to uncover any and all negligent parties, our team of skilled lawyers at Shulman & Hill can help you conduct an investigation. While you focus on your injuries, we can compile police reports, video footage, witness testimonies, and any other data that may be useful in determining negligence.

Our team can work diligently to determine liability and help determine whether careless behavior is to blame. A few individuals who may be held responsible for an accident include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • The driver
  • Car manufacturers
  • Any parties tasked with maintaining roads in Long Island City

If we can determine that any of these parties are responsible for your injuries, our team can begin to put together an accident claim. This claim plays a crucial role in your pursuit of compensation.

Injuries That Can Occur in a Long Island City Auto Accident

There are different types of injuries that someone might face in the aftermath of a car accident. In some instances, you may experience whiplash. In others, you could suffer broken bones, lacerations to your eyes from broken glass, or even paralysis.

Common injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head injuries and concussions
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Internal bleeding

As one might expect, the amount of compensation you can realistically seek depends heavily on the extent of your injuries. While a whiplash injury is legitimate and worth seeking medical attention for, a claim for a whiplash injury will likely not receive as much compensation as a claim filed by someone who suffered lifelong effects of a traumatic head injury, disembodiment, or another severe injury.

Am I Entitled to Compensation?

Depending on the factors surrounding your case, it is possible that you can secure compensation to cover various injuries, wage losses, and other damages you may face in the aftermath of a car accident. In many cases, these accidents can be severe enough to require long-term physical therapy as well.

At Shulman & Hill, we work to help our clients pursue any compensation they may be entitled to after suffering injuries. There are a few things that may figure into the compensation we can pursue for our clients, including the types of injuries and losses suffered. Our personal injury attorneys look closely at any medical bills that may come as a result of a car accident and relevant medical records that show the extent of your injuries and treatment. Usually, these accidents can lead to exorbitant medical costs that put significant financial pressure on those involved.

We can also take the time you may have to miss from work while recovering from your injuries into account. In worst-case scenarios, people may even lose their lives in the blink of an eye in a car crash. If your loved one lost their life in an accident and was the primary earner in your household, we may even be able to pursue compensation for the money they would have earned had they not passed away.
