Instead of dealing with all this yourself, hire our Huntington car accident attorneys to handle your case.

When you retain a lawyer from Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC, you won’t have to worry about handling any part of the legal process alone. Our legal team is committed to fighting for the settlements our clients deserve, and we never settle for less than you’re owed.

Damages You Can Recover in a Car Accident Case in Huntington

Car accident victims are often entitled to both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are those that come with a fixed financial value, while non-economic damages are your intangible losses. When you partner with our motor vehicle accident attorneys, we will assess your case and calculate the total value of your losses.

Our team can help you seek compensation for:

  • All your current and ongoing medical expenses
  • Income you lost because your injuries forced you to take time off work
  • Reduced earning capacity, if your injuries prevent you from returning to your pre-accident job
  • Property damage, such as the cost of getting your car fixed or replacing it
  • Mental anguish, especially if you now suffer from anxiety or depression related to the accident
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life, if you can’t enjoy the same activities you once did

Filing Your Huntington Car Accident Lawsuit on Time Is Crucial

Time is limited to file a personal injury lawsuit. The statute of limitations in Huntington, NY generally gives accident victims three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. This is outlined in CVP § 214.

According to EPT § 5-4.1, you generally have even less time to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This statute of limitations only allows two years to file a wrongful death case. Because of these strict legal deadlines, it is often in your best interest to get started on your case as soon as you can.

What to Do After a Huntington Car Crash

Right after your accident, there are a few things you can do to protect your legal rights and your health. We recommend:

  • Seeking medical attention right away: The sooner you see a doctor, the better. They can assess your injuries and determine the best course of treatment. Plus, your medical records can serve as evidence in your case, linking your injuries to the car accident.
  • Gathering evidence at the accident scene: If your injuries allow you to start collecting evidence, carefully do so. Do not put yourself or others in danger for evidence. However, if you are able to take photos of your car, the crash scene, and your injuries, it can help us build your case. Witness phone numbers are useful, too.
  • Avoiding communication with the insurance company: Insurance companies often use bad-faith tactics to undermine your case and offer you a lower settlement than you deserve. An insurance adjuster may try to contact you after the accident, but you do not have to provide a recorded statement. Instead, pass on communication to us so you do not accidentally say anything that puts your case at risk.
  • Staying off social media: Avoid posting anything until after your case is settled. Insurers and the at-fault party’s legal team may try to use your words out of context to avoid offering you the settlement you need.
  • Hire a lawyer from our firm: You can call Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC from the accident scene for legal advice. We can explain the steps you should take and your legal options. It’s best to get started on your case as soon as possible.
