Recently there have been a number of celebrities involved in car accidents resulting in serious personal injuries and even death. This past week New York Hip Hop radio host Angie Martinez announced that she will be taking significant time off from work so as to recover from a car accident that left her with a fractured vertebrae. https://www.newsday.com/entertainment/celebrities/angie-martinez-car-accident-power-1051-1.38227264
In September 2019 well-known comedian and actor Kevin Hart was involved in an accident that left him with severe back injuries that nearly cost him his life and that will keep him from returning to work for the foreseeable future. https://ew.com/celebrity/2019/11/10/kevin-hart-first-appearance-car-accident-peoples-choice-awards/

In each of these cases, the celebrities’ injuries were so severe that they had tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and were unable to return to work for months. In the case of Jessie Combs, her loved ones have lost the primary wage earner in the family. Fortunately for these celebrities and their families, their wealth allowed them to overcome the financial burdens that these accidents brought upon them. However, these high profile accidents serve as a reminder of the importance of having a competent and experienced personal injury lawyer should you or a loved one be involved in a car accident given that the average Long Islander would likely be unable to pay tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and go weeks, much less months without being able to return to work.
