Leave the Insurance Companies to Us
If you have been injured in a car accident or car wreck, do not talk to anyone from insurance companies. Almost immediately after an auto accident, insurance company representatives try to get victims to talk about the accident. Insurance representatives are trained to use dishonesty to shrink or eliminate legitimate claims by unfairly shifting the blame on victims.
If you’ve been in a car accident, talk to your lawyer BEFORE your insurance company! Refer all of their questions to us, and we will handle them for you. Insurance companies have many tricks to avoid paying out to accident victims.
It’s best to let experienced professionals who are well-seasoned in insurance tactics handle those conversations. Our New York motor vehicle accident lawyers will provide the necessary information without compromising your claim for compensation.

A negligent driving victim shouldn’t be responsible for medical bills, lost wages, and long term pain and suffering. A victim should not have to carry the burden of someone else’s negligence.

Road rage is considered an assault with one motor vehicle against the operator or passenger(s) of another motor vehicle. A person found guilty of road rage will receive criminal charges. Road rage is considered reckless driving. It is defined as driving with deliberate disregard for whether or not one may cause an accident.
A reckless driver may be found reckless if they drive in a threatening or harassing manner and cause an accident. If you have been hurt by a reckless driver, you may be entitled to a personal injury claim.
Serious injuries and fatalities are common with high-speed collisions. At high speeds, the vehicle is subject to such force that it cannot structurally protect its passengers from intense impact. Speeding shortens the time a driver has to respond to an unexpected emergency. It increases the severity of a crash, and renders the airbag and seatbelt less effective.
For innocent survivors of high-speed motor vehicle accidents, the physical and emotional recovery processes can be incredibly painful and expensive.
Texting While Driving
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2,166 people were killed by distracted driving in 2017. This accounted for 8.5% of total fatalities for the year.
Every day, approximately nine people are killed and more than 1,000 are injured daily by distracted drivers, according to the CDC.
Currently there is no federal, national ban on texting or using a wireless phone while driving. However, numerous states have banned texting or wireless phone use while driving.
If a distracted driver has harmed you or someone you love, let Keogh Crispi investigate and fight for you. We are experienced motor vehicle attorneys and we can secure the reward you deserve.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Too many Americans are under the mistaken impression that driving after a drink or two is not drunk driving. To drive under the influence is a choice. Despite awareness of the people they are endangering by choosing to drink and drive, many still do it. For this reason, drunk driving is one of the leading causes of driving injuries and deaths.
Falling Asleep at the Wheel
Nearly 4% of deadly crashes in the United States involve people falling asleep while driving. Hundreds are injured each year by those who fall asleep while operating a vehicle. This is most common among truck drivers, who are often required to drive while fatigued. The U.S. Department of Transportation has limited the hours a driver may be on the road in one day.
If a vehicle rolls over during an accident, two issues may be at fault: the road conditions, or the vehicle itself. Let our experienced motor vehicle accident lawyers investigate your accident. We may prove that a road defect or manufacturing/design defect caused the accident.
Accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. When you hire Keogh Crispi, our attorneys will work fiercely to investigate the cause of your accident. This is how we hold all of the negligent parties accountable for your injuries.
We have investigated and handled cases involving:
- Rear-end collisions
