Seasoned Trial Attorneys Handle Auto Accidents in Garden City

Comprehensive representation focused on full compensation for injured clients

Although New York City traffic deaths, and especially pedestrian fatalities, have declined dramatically in recent years under the city’s Vision Zero initiative, motor vehicle accidents continue to be a major source of serious injury and wrongful death. If you are hurt in a crash, you can be in for quite an ordeal due to medical treatment, surgery, missed work, painful rehabilitation and the emotional stress of having your life so drastically disrupted. On top of it all, you’ll have to deal with insurance adjusters whose only concern is limiting losses for their company. Fortunately, powerful assistance is only a phone call away. The experienced attorneys at Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. are ready to manage all the legal aspects of your auto accident and fight for the full compensation you deserve.

Experience with a wide range of motor vehicle accident scenarios

When choosing an attorney to handle your auto accident case, a key consideration is experience with cases similar to yours. Will the lawyer you hire know how to prove liability in your type of crash, or get the full value for your type of injury? No attorney can guarantee a specific outcome, but at Rubin & Licatesi, we have a long track record of success in various types of motor vehicle accidents involving:

  • Passenger cars
  • Commercial trucks
  • Motorcycles
  • Injured pedestrians
  • At-fault taxis, limousines, and Uber and Lyft rideshare drivers
  • Public transportation

We have handled cases of intersection accidents on the most dangerous surface streets in Queens, such as Woodhaven Boulevard, Queens Boulevard and Rockaway Boulevard, as well as busy streets closer to our Garden City office, such as Stewart Avenue, Clifton Road and Nassau Boulevard. We have assisted clients hurt in high-speed crashes on the Jericho Turnpike and the Meadowbrook State Parkway.

Proving liability in a serious injury car crash

The most important aspect of car accident representation is being able to prove that a defendant is legally responsible for the crash and the injuries. We work with accident reconstruction experts and interview witnesses to the crash to determine who or what caused it. Common reasons for the auto accidents that occur in and around Garden City include:

  • Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
  • Distracted driving, including cellphone use and texting
  • Dangerous maneuvers that constitute reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Failing to observe a traffic signal or stop sign

There are also cases in which someone other than a driver is at fault. When auto parts, such as brakes, ignition switches or airbags fail, we take steps to hold the manufacturer liable. When a roadway is unreasonably unsafe because of poor design or disrepair, we pursue compensation from the government entity responsible for that roadway.

Proving the full extent of your injuries

Another element of the case that is vitally important is proving the full extent of our clients’ injuries. Severe injuries often require future medical care and may limit a victim’s ability to work long into the future. Catastrophic injuries are permanently life-altering. We are passionate about getting our clients the maximum possible recovery for serious injuries that include:

  • Broken and crushed bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck, back and spine injuries, including paralysis
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of bodily function or body part

It takes a knowledgeable and determined attorney to get the true value of an injury through a negotiated settlement or at trial. Insurance companies always try to negotiate directly with a victim, because the easiest way to reduce their costs is to take advantage of a party who doesn’t know how much their injuries are worth. We protect your interests by fighting for full compensation.

Assistance with your no-fault insurance claim

Even if your injury is not considered severe and you are attempting to settle with your own no-fault insurance carrier, you can benefit from our knowledge and experience. Policyholders rarely expect their own insurance company, whom they’ve been paying faithfully for years, to turn on them when they make a claim, but too often that is the reality. We are one of the leading law firms for addressing issues with no-fault insurance claims and are ready to help you resolve all conflicts with your insurer.
