Aggressive Legal Representation that Gets Results in Johnson City

Johnson City lies just to the west of Binghamton along the northern bank of the Susquehanna River. The Southern Tier Expressway (Route 17) connects Johnson City to Binghamton and points east, as well as to Endicott and points west. Route 201 crosses the Susquehanna, linking Johnson City to Vestal on the other side of the river.

The village of Johnson City is home to roughly 15,000 residents, and thousands of commuters, visitors and shoppers pass through the area on a daily basis. Oakdale Mall is located on Reynolds Road (Route 201), which is a busy retail district. Main Street (Route 17C) is also the site of many businesses and workplaces. Johnson City is the home of Davis College, and Binghamton University is just across the bridge, which means many visitors and novice drivers contribute to the risk of serious car accidents in the area.

If you’ve been involved in a minor crash in Johnson City, the state’s no-fault insurance laws require you to make a claim with your own auto insurance company for any minor injuries you’ve suffered. However, if your injuries are considered “serious” under New York law, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the at-fault driver who caused the traffic accident.

What Should I Do If I Have Been in an Accident in Johnson City?

  1. Call The Police. It is very important to stop at the scene and notify the police about the accident. You can reach the Johnson City Police Department by calling 911 or (607) 729-9321 for dispatch. The police can prepare an accident report that includes important details about what happened in the accident. It also creates an official record of the event and can provide contact information for other drivers and witnesses.
  2. Seek Medical Treatment. Your health and safety should be your top priority. Even if you do not get treatment at the scene, it is still critical to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident. Not only will a thorough examination ensure that you receive proper treatment, it will also document your injuries. Some injuries may not be apparent in the immediate aftermath of a crash. A full medical examination is extremely important to catch potentially life-threatening injuries that may go unnoticed until it is too late. Be certain to tell the doctor that you were in a crash.
  3. Do Not Admit Fault. Even though your first impulse may be to apologize for the accident, try to say as little as possible. Do not discuss the crash with anyone on the scene other than the police. When you give a statement, answer only what you are asked and do not speculate about who was at fault for the accident.
  4. Take Pictures. If you are able to, use your smartphone or a camera to photograph the accident scene. Be sure to get multiple pictures of the damaged vehicles, the site of the crash and any obvious injuries. If you can’t take pictures yourself, ask someone else to do it for you. Pictures of the scene could play a vital role in a car accident lawsuit.
  5. Get Contact Information. Be sure to collect contact information from everyone involved in the crash and any eyewitnesses. Write down the names, addresses, phone numbers and insurance information of all the drivers. It may be easiest to use your smartphone to take pictures of driver’s licenses, insurance cards, registration cards and other documents. Notify your own insurance company about the accident as soon as possible.
