Car Accidents in Hempstead, New York

Jacoby & Meyers multi million dollar advocates forum Award

With attractive nearby destinations like Long Beach and JFK, Hempstead is a popular residential area that also sees droves of visitors each year. As a result, you might expect local traffic congestion. And unfortunately, so are traffic collisions on our heavily congested roads.

The following statistics from the New York State Department of Health illustrate how frequently accidents occur in the Hempstead area:

  • In a recent three-year period, car accidents were among the top five causes of injury-related deaths throughout the Hempstead area.
  • During that same period, car wrecks were the second-leading cause of injury-related hospitalizations and emergency room (ER) visits in greater Hempstead.
  • Each year, roughly 13,755 Hempstead area residents are hospitalized or visit ERs, and 81 locals die due to injuries from traffic accidents.
  • Among Hempstead area residents hospitalized following traffic accidents, approximately 42 percent are diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

Car Accidents in Hempstead

Traffic accidents in the Hempstead area accounted for 10 percent of all crashes in New York State in one recent year, according to official state data. That represented a total of 40,306 crashes, out of which 61 ended in fatalities and another 11,330 in injuries. A total of 64 people died in those accidents, and another 15,914 people were hurt.

In other words, the roads in and around Hempstead are dangerous for drivers and passengers. The fortunate ones escape accidents with a dented fender or a broken tail light. But as the statistics above reflect, many motorists in Hempstead are not so fortunate. Instead, they find themselves confronting catastrophic injuries, tragic losses, and ever-mounting expenses.

Achieving the Best Results For Our Clients

We Bring Our A-Game to the Negotiating Table

Time and time again, our intense case preparation pays dividends when the time comes to sit down at the negotiating table with attorneys and insurance adjusters for the parties who harmed our client.

The reality of our legal system is that most Hempstead car accident cases “settle” before trial. Lawyers on both “sides” of a case know this. As a result, many lawyers for injured clients treat negotiations as a foregone conclusion that does not require much advance work.

But not our team. We walk into a negotiating session armed with a mountain of evidence to support our demands for maximum damages. In fact, over the years, we have earned the reputation as a team of prepared, aggressive lawyers who negotiate from the facts. Lawyers and insurance adjusters on the other “side” know that when we sit down at the negotiating table, we are ready and able to prove every dollar of compensation we demand for our clients.

We Get Results in the Courtroom

Of course, just because most Hempstead car accident cases settle out of court does not mean all of them do. When the “other side” is not prepared to be fair and reasonable, we often advise our clients that the best course of action is to fight it out in court. And thanks to our total preparation of every case, we are ready to go the distance, every time.

It might come as a surprise that our readiness to fight for fair compensation for our clients in court sets us apart from many Hempstead car accident attorneys. As we said above, some lawyers see car accident work as a “volume” business. They want to process cases, not spend the time and effort to pursue them to a winning verdict. Over time, those lawyers lose any skills they might have once had to argue a case to a judge and jury.

Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, lawyers, in contrast, have a track record of success in Tri-State area courtrooms. In fact, our reputation as aggressive, experienced, street-smart trial lawyers is so well-known that opposing lawyers and insurance companies may bend over backward to avoid facing off with our team in front of a jury.

Of course, we always tell our clients that a trial is unpredictable, and even our best lawyers have had disappointing outcomes from time to time. But every one of our clients can rest assured that if going to trial is what it takes to get every penny they need and deserve, Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, will bring a strong trial team into Hempstead’s courtrooms.
