A proven record
SAM will take on cases other firms won’t and win them. This is one of many good reasons why it’s earned the highest possible rating from Martindale-Hubbell, a firm established in 1898 and the most trusted legal information services provider in America.
Long Island Car Accident Lawyer
When all else seems to have failed after a car crash, there is always light at the end of a tunnel. While many can doubt whether this light can be given by an attorney or a legal firm, there are firms out there that do. One of these is SAM or Silberstein, Awad and Miklos, PC, one of the most awarded personal injury law firms operating in the metropolitan New York area.
Fortunately for those who may be involved in a car collision in Long Island, SAM operates not just one but two office locations on the island. These are found in the independent counties of Nassau and Suffolk. The locations and contacts for these offices are provided below:
SAM Nassau County

Our firm knows how much a car crash can take out of a person’s life, that is, if he or she has been lucky enough to survive one. Yes, we know that collisions are some of the most unfortunate things that can happen to anyone. That is why SAM lawyers are dedicated to fighting for full and just compensation for car accident clients in court.
It is not enough to settle, or if a settlement is in the offing, you can rest assured that it would be close to what is full and fair compensation. When a liable person does not feel guilty or feels that he is not financially liable, be assured that your SAM attorney will dissuade him of the fact, in or out of court. At SAM, the most vital thing for clients is the preparedness and determination to settle matters through litigation.
This is because litigation can and will get just compensation most of the time. We understand how liable persons may have their own rights regarding legal defense. We respect this. We also respect the court process, and this can become complex as well as intense. Despite the fact, nothing escapes our lawyers, not loopholes, not precedent case details, anything in rule books and, of course, the legal brief pertaining to any specific case.
For Long Islanders, that means a solid and supportive system during the court or litigation process. In fact, the firm has perfected its own unique client care system, not only to win cases for clients, but to help them get over the many humps involved in recovering from a car crash, and that starts with a solid pack up in psychological terms.
Tips on What to Do After a Car Crash
- The most important thing to do after a car crash is to make sure you are safe.
- Make sure your emergency flashing lights are on.
- Remain inside your vehicle, or if possible, get it off to the roadside.
- If you can, call the police, then file a police report or an MV 104 soonest.
- It is always critical to have yourself evaluated by a medical professional or team immediately. The evaluation can be on scene or in a hospital.
- Try to get the insurance information from the other party or driver involved.
- Always go beyond what the insurance adjusters and companies tell you, because their job often limits the compensation you have a right to.
Legal Care the SAM Way
Hope is something a person involved in a car collision may not have much of. We at SAM make sure that this intangible factor goes right up for car crash clients right from the start. That is part of a system of client care that is nothing short of perfect, as far as we can make it so.
We know, of course, how the psychological stress bearing down on a client can be really bad. We mitigate this, we help a client see beyond the pain to a place where there is hope. And this hope is something our lawyers work very hard for to achieve for a client.
Whether you want to settle or want to litigate, our knowledge base and experience is up to the task. Litigation is a preference, although settlement might be an option in certain cases. We work for clients in a way that gets them full and just compensation, not just a limited settlement. And not anything provided by insurance adjusters or agents who seek to restrict the settlement to their dimensions, or even deny accident victims the right to litigate.
Knowledge and facts, these are key to helping a client regain balance and even peace of mind. SAM never wants to stress a client, and a good way to do this is to help clients see the WHY of their case. Why it happened is something that may be answered through litigation, when a SAM lawyer expertly recreates the background story of an accident or getting the correct details from a liable person. This is part of establishing the truth behind any case, a legal right for anyone, and an imperative SAM knows is important so that justice is served.
SAM Knows New York and Long Island
With a culture all its own, New York City stands out as a city that many love and visit as tourists. The tall buildings, the places of interest, famous restaurants and shopping destinations. All these are things you would expect from a walk around NYC for the pleasure of it.
Of course, a legal expert in car crashes also knows how traffic rules are made and regulated in a place like New York. The regulations are often things that apply to a state. Aside from legal expertise, knowledge of place and culture is also an important factor in the legal process for SAM lawyers.
Long Island is famous in New York. SAM also knows it like the back of the hand, in both the social and legal sense. From end to end, we know all of Suffolk and Nassau counties.
