Your trusted
legal team.

Our managing partner, Steve Palermo, is here to help you. He is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get to work to make sure someone is fighting for car collision victims. Our smaller firm atmosphere creates an environment where our clients know their case is getting personalized attention. Steve meets with each client so that he can both introduce himself and review the case so that he can determine the best game plan for how each of our Hauppauge car accident cases needs to be handled.  

In a smaller law firm, every case is on our radar. Every client gets the opportunity to meet with their attorney to discuss their case, and at any point during the process you can request a meeting or a phone call with that attorney for updates. Each case is approached differently, with our focus being in different areas where we feel that specific case needs it. No client’s case is too small for individual attention. Further, we don’t have attorney turn-overs. The attorney you hire will be there until the end of your case.

We Have a Track Record of Results

Our firm has an incredible track record of securing high value settlements for our clients. A few examples of settlements our firm has obtained:

  • 3.5 million dollar settlement with a child pedestrian that was crossing the street and was struck by a truck. Due to the incident, the child had suffered a traumatic brain injury. Our firm’s strategic handling of the case and the use of several expert witnesses moved the case to a settlement prior to trial.
  • 1.5 million dollar settlement for a motor vehicle accident in which we represented the passenger in a case where the vehicle was struck by a truck and the client had suffered both a mild traumatic brain injury and spine injuries. Our case strategy also moved this case to be settled prior to trial.
  • 1 million dollar settlement for a drunk driving accident where the driver was inebriated after being over-served alcohol at a bar. He collided with another vehicle while driving home and the plaintiff sustained substantial injuries. Both the bar and the driver were required to pay the settlement for her injuries.
  • $950,000 dollar settlement obtained for a motor vehicle collision in which the plaintiff was rear ended and suffered sustained neck and back injuries.

These are just some examples of our firm’s success in litigating car crash cases. Call our Hauppauge car accident lawyers today to schedule your free no obligation initial consultation, and see if your case can be added to the list of our many successes.

Steps To Take After Being Involved In A collision.

  1. Assess the severity of the situation. If you are critically injured, the best thing to do is focus on medical attention and call an ambulance as quickly as possible
  2. If you are injured but not critically, call the police so that they can come to the scene and report the crash.
  3. Once emergency responders have reached the scene, collect any evidence you can. This evidence can prove to be crucial later. Take photos and videos of the accident. Get the names of any witnesses at the scene. Get information on the other driver if you can, such as name and insurance.
  4. As soon as you are able, call your insurance company and report the claim. Let them know you were involved in a collision and give them a full list of all your injuries, even the minor ones. You never know how serious an injury is until time passes. 
  5. Keep records of all of your medical treatment, doctors, and bills. Your medical treatment is your case’s most important evidence.
  6. Call our office at 631-621-6183 to obtain a free consultation so that we can promptly get you in and lead you through the next steps of the process.
