Drag Racing

Drag racing usually causes more serious injuries worth more money and with more insurance available than other types of car accidents.

Injuries from drag racing are worth more because they usually involve a broken bone, surgery or death. Unlike soft tissue injuries, the court cannot dismiss the case and the insurance company will have to pay the injured victim.

More money is available because with two drivers conspiring to commit an illegal act of drag racing, we will file a lawsuit against the drivers and owners of both cars.

Because drag racing is an illegal act, we will file a lawsuit asking for punitive damages.

When representing a father and son who were seriously injured in a Suffolk County drag racing accident (photo below), we filed a lawsuit asking for $50 million in punitive damages.

In that accident, which was reported in Newsday, one of the cars which were drag racing, ran a stop sign and broadsided our client’s car. The father was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Bayshore and his son was airlifted to Stony Brook Hospital.

Car broadsided by another which ran a stop sign when car drag racing

When drag racing causes a fatality we do not charge a legal fee for the estate work needed in a wrongful death lawsuit.

If you are injured in a drag racing accident, you may also be able to file a claim with the New York State crime victims compensation board.
