Long Island DWI Crash

Long Island DWI Crash

A motor vehicle accident in Kings Park seriously injured a passenger and resulted in a DWI charge for the driver.  The passenger was taken to the hospital by helicopter.  The driver’s arraignment will take place in Central Islip’s First District Court today.  DWI’s remain a very serious problem on Long Island.

The passenger injured in the accident will be permitted to file a No Fault insurance claim through the insurance of the vehicle he was riding inside.  This passenger may also be able to recover compensation for his injuries in a personal injury lawsuit.  Compensation for such an accident will require litigation.  In motor vehicle accident cases, it is also necessary to explore umbrella insurance coverage because often times the policy limits for the vehicle are insufficient to make the victim whole again.  Asset searches should be explored in the event that all insurance coverage options are lacking.  Although the well being of the victim is always the primary concern, it is important to know your rights if you are unfortunate enough to be the victim of a DWI or DUI related accident.

To get a fuller perspective, this story is available on Newsday.com authored by Lisa Irizarry, and News 12 Long Island.  The epidemic of DWI and DUI incidents on Long Island does not seem to be subsiding and injuries and fatalities are still a concern.  Personal injury and wrongful death actions are regularly commenced in Nassau and Suffolk County Courts because Long Island roads are still filled with drivers who have had too much to drink before getting behind the wheel.  Hopefully, this will change in the near future; but for now, knowing your rights are the best we can settle for.
