Types of car and motorcycle accidents on Long Island’s roadways

A distracted driver’s unexpected and unintentional actions cause accidents every day. Drivers can be drunk, distracted, negligent, reckless or otherwise violating traffic rules and putting you in harm’s way. The ways to have an accident are nearly countless. Common types of car and motorcycle accidents include:

  • Rear end collisions
  • Speeding
  • Intersection collisions
  • Side impact collisions
  • Highway accidents
  • Failure to yield
  • Red light accidents
  • Hit-and-run accidents


If you have been in an accident and experience even a hint of pain, see a physician immediately to rule out a serious injury and to get appropriate treatment. Make sure that you obtain a copy of any medical reports. Prior to giving a statement to an insurance adjuster, it’s in your best interests to contact an attorney. As car accidents attorneys, we seek rightful compensation for your injuries.

How do New York State’s no-fault laws impact you ?

New York requires all vehicles to carry “no-fault” personal injury insurance in order to register a vehicle and to get license plates. No-fault coverage encompasses medical expenses, lost wages and other “reasonable and necessary expenses.” No-fault insurance generally covers accident-related expenses up to $50,000 per person. In order to get compensation after an accident, you must file a claim within 30 days. As your attorneys, we file this claim for you and manage the insurance process.
