Find a Friendly and Capable Auto Accident Lawyer

Icy roads. Overcrowding. Failed equipment. Whatever the reason, car, bus, or train accidents can have a severe impact on your life. Injuries and the cost in vehicle repairs can wreak havoc on your finances, and you deserve compensation to cover your losses. When you get into an auto accident, you need an experienced injury attorney in your corner.

Unfortunately, evidence at an accident site fades quickly, and so do the memories of witnesses. Winning a bus or train accident case requires especially quick action to ensure you receive full benefits. Our team can help you fight for what you deserve. The more information you are able to collect at the scene, the better. This can help our attorneys piece together more information, to build a stronger case in your favor.

Don’t wait to hire a lawyer—call D’Agostino & Associates, P.C. We pride ourselves on taking personal care of you. We make it our motto, “If you can’t get to us, we will come to you.”

Get Experienced Help with Your Car Accident Case

Typically we handle two types of car accident cases: settlements for personal injury and settlements for car damage.

Even if your car is fine after an accident, you might have a case for a personal injury claim by virtue of residual pain. We have auto accident lawyers in Staten Island, NY, who know how to navigate the complexities of such a case.

Secure Help with Your Train Accident Case

Despite the potential for disastrous train accidents, railroad crossings often lack adequate warning systems. Negligence can also lead to systems malfunctioning. Injuries also often occur among railroad employees. Train accidents have a much higher potential for fatality than an auto accident.

In New York City, millions of people ride the rails every day for work. But it is important to exercise caution on the subway platforms. Listen to warnings given by the operating company, and stay within safely marked sections of the platforms. If something falls onto the tracks, do not attempt to get it yourself. Contact transport staff or nearby personnel.

Find Confidence in Your Bus Accident Case

Bus accidents don’t happen as often as car accidents. However, when they do occur, they may be worse due to the sheer size of the vehicle involved. The danger of a rollover is higher, and the lack of seat belts can lead to injury even in less dramatic situations.

Pedestrian Auto Accident Cases

When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, the damage can be devastating. Cars striking a pedestrian at just 30 MPH have a 40% fatality rate. This rises to about 80% after reaching 40 MPH. The faster the vehicle is going, and the higher the vehicle is, the more dangerous the accident can be. This means that accidents involving SUVs or lifted trucks could be potentially more fatal. If you or a loved one is struck by a vehicle, seek medical assistance. Then, contact a trusted, experienced, injury attorney.

Choosing the Right Auto Accident Attorney for Your Case

When choosing an attorney to represent you, it is important to make the right decision. You need an attorney with a wealth of knowledge in the field, and a lot of experience. D’Agostino & Associates has been helping people like you with their personal injury cases for over 30 years. Some lawyers may try to settle most of their cases before stepping into the courtroom. This can often lead to potentially less payout, at a quicker overturn rate for the attorneys. However, at D’Agostino & Associates, our legal team evaluates your case and determines the best course of action. Whether its a decisive settlement or a courtroom battle, our team will help guide you every step of the way. Overall, we want to ensure that you get the best possible outcome for your case.

Drunk Driving Accidents

If you or a loved one was injured or killed as a result of a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Often, drunk driver incidents may be more dangerous or deadly because of the driver’s intoxication. Pedestrians, other drivers, and passengers can be at risk of injury to a drunk driver. For these cases, it is important to prove more than just who is at fault. Proving that the individual was under the influence can be instrumental in securing the case for you. If you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, call the police. They can take statements, and create a record showing that the individual was intoxicated. Proof that they were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident can be vital to your case.
