Middletown NY Car Accident Lawyer
Middletown is a busy community within the New York Metropolitan area. Each and every day drivers travel the busy roadways commuting into New York City or rushing to catch a ride on a train or bus. In addition to the automobile and truck drivers on the major highways, there are also back roads filled with local residents, cyclists, motorcycles and pedestrians making their way to the area’s shopping centers. The Shawangunk Mountains also run through Middletown bringing tourists looking to take in the beautiful vistas the Hudson Valley has to offer. The combination of local traffic, commuters and tourists makes it more likely for an automobile accident to occur.

Middletown Accident – Listening to Your Story
There is an abundant number of circumstances that can lead to an automobile accident. Whether you have been involved in a collision involving another automobile, your SUV experienced a roll over or you were hit by a bus or truck, you should not have to suffer because of someone else’s negligence. During our initial consultation we will listen to the details of your unique story and find out as many details as possible so that we can determine if you have a case. One of the most common causes of an auto accident is a driver that is distracted when they should be focusing on the road ahead. When anyone operating a vehicle is distracted, even for only a second, it can lead to serious consequences. Some common examples of distracted driving include:
• Texting or talking on a cellphone
• Talking to other passengers in the vehicle
• Using a GPS
• Eating or drinking while driving
• Changing the radio station and adjusting the volume
• Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
If you, your passenger, or a witness at the scene detected behaviors that can be described as distracted driving, it is important to provide that information to the police so it appears on the police report.
Distracted driving is not the only reason for an automobile collision. Other factors such as hazardous road conditions, failure to follow traffic laws or signals or yielding to the right of way of pedestrians or cyclists, or even vehicle malfunction can also lead to crashes.
Each automobile collision is different, which means each victim’s story is unique and deserves to be heard. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Sobo & Sobo want to listen to your story as we help you move forward after a collision. Our compassionate lawyers and their team of paralegals are approachable and will walk with you every step of the way through this difficult journey.
Recovering and Moving Forward
No matter if you were involved in a rear-end collision, hit head-on, t-boned or sideswiped, each crash carries the risk of injury. In New York State, more than 102,000 people seek treatment at an emergency department or hospital each year resulting in more than $800 million in hospital charges. Some of the injuries include:
Following a car crash, the most important thing is to be sure any one injured receives proper medical attention, even if they feel fine. Oftentimes, victims claim the collision caused no physical effects only to find later that there were injuries such as internal bleeding, which could lead to serious consequences if left unchecked.
While medical attention is being received, it can be easy to be overwhelmed by your physical injuries, the emotional impacts and the financial burdens from missed time at work and medical bills. During this difficult time we will work to protect your rights and recover the maximum amount of compensation leaving you to focus on healing.

• Medical Records
• Death Certificate
• Original autopsy report
• Police Report
