Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer

When you are involved in an accident or otherwise injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or malice, the results can be both physically and emotionally overwhelming as you try to recover from your injuries while juggling the financial impacts of this situation and struggling with the emotional anguish of knowing that your injuries could have been avoided if the at-fault party had acted responsibly. Fortunately, while there is no way to undo your accident or injuries, there is a way to get compensated for your damages, both financial and emotional, while working with a Long Island personal injury lawyer through your legal case. 

Legally, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries in Suffolk County, but this does not mean that getting the money that you deserve will be a simple process.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Long Island, New York

The following are just a few of the many types of personal injury cases that are brought against defendants, both in Long Island and across the State of New York. Whether or not any of the following examples resemble your own case, contact the injury attorneys at Isaacson, Schiowitz & Korson, LLP as soon as possible so that you can speak with a legal professional about your unique situation, and how our team can help you fight for the compensation that you deserve. No two personal injury cases are alike, which is why we will take a unique approach to your case in order to reach a fair and specific outcome.

Car Accidents

When you get into your car and head out onto the road in Long Island, it does not matter if you are the most defensive and safe driver on the planet: you will always be at the mercy of everyone else who you are sharing the road with. To personal injury lawyers, Long Island car accidents are a common cause, although they can be extremely frustrating in order to reach a fair settlement agreement with the insurance company. Some of the most common causes of car accidents in Long Island are things like speeding, texting while driving, drunk driving, failure to signal a turn, and blind spots. 

Truck Accidents

Getting into an accident with a commercial truck can be catastrophic, even at low speeds that would be considered a “fender bender” when between two passenger vehicles. The legal case following the accident is equally more complicated, as you will be filing a claim with a commercial insurance company. Typically, commercial insurance policies have liability limits in excess of $1 million, meaning that there may be more money available for your case; however, this does not mean that the insurance company will pay appropriate damages without a fight.

Medical Malpractice

Medical practitioners are held to justifiably high standards, and a breach of their duty of care when administering medical care to a patient can cause lasting, permanent, or even fatal injuries resulting from things like misdiagnoses, prescription errors, anesthesia mistakes, or improper treatments that go against current reasonable practices. Working with a Long Island personal injury attorney is an important step towards building a legal case that will get you the money that you deserve, and our injury attorneys will seek the maximum compensation allowable under the law for you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are enjoyable vehicles to drive or ride on during the great spring, summer, and fall weather in Long Island and across New York. However, even the most responsible motorcycle driver is at risk of a personal injury caused by another driver’s irresponsible or dangerous behavior on the road, and motorcycles are disproportionately dangerous when compared to cars and trucks when it comes to injuries and fatalities in an accident. In fact, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, motorcycle accidents are as much as 26x more likely to result in a fatality than a car accident. 

Workplace Injuries

If your employer has any employees, then the law states that they are required to carry workers’ compensation to protect both themselves AND their workers from the financial impacts of a workplace injury. Workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” insurance policy that protects your employer from personal injury lawsuits while also guaranteeing that you have access to compensation for your injuries, regardless of who (including yourself) caused the accident. However, this also means that you will not be able to take legal action against your employer in most cases, but working with injury lawyers will give you the ability to understand the law and how it applies to your situation.

Pedestrian Accidents

When you travel around Long Island, New York on foot, you are at the mercy of drivers on the road, hoping that they follow the law and pay attention to the road markings meant to keep you safe as you walk around. These include crosswalks, sidewalks, and signage warning of foot traffic, but too often a driver will ignore these signs and cause an accident that results in a personal injury case. For a personal injury lawyer, Long Island pedestrian accidents may require a close look at the scene of the accident, as well as accounting for eyewitness statements and other corroborating evidence, in order to prove fault and ultimately seek compensation. 

Premise Liability

Entering someone else’s property, whether owned and maintained by a private individual, a company, or even a government agency, comes with the implied peace of mind that the team responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the property has taken all of the appropriate steps to ensure that your visit is safe. Unfortunately, hazards can either be overlooked or willfully ignored, leading to an accident that our Long Island personal injury lawyers will be happy to take a closer look at for you, and fight to get you the compensation that the law entitles you to.
