Veterans Memorial Highway Accident in Hauppauge Injures One
Calendar icon April 25, 2021

A Veterans Memorial Highway accident in Hauppauge, Suffolk, injured one and closed a section of the highway. The accident happened at around 1 a.m. on April 13.

The police informed that a pickup truck was going westbound on Veterans Memorial Highway, turned onto Raoul Wallenberg Drive, where it was hit by a sedan. One man was injured with non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital. The pickup driver was not injured. 

The police continue to investigate the reasons for the Veterans Memorial Highway accident.

After an accident it’s important to remember several things; stop and stay at the scene, check if you or anyone else is injured and call the medics (even if the injuries are minor). Step out of the vehicle and contact the police. Afterwards exchange contact info with the other drivers involved in the crash. 

Although many people don’t think of attorneys in such moments, it’s a smart idea to call yours if you have one. If not, contact a car accident attorney and follow their instructions. The police will ask you questions and anything you say may be used against you. Even something that sounds like apologizing may be interpreted as admitting fault, and things may go in a different direction for you (even if you didn’t cause the accident).

Seeking a compensation claim is your right; your attorney will help you to write the demanding letter, negotiate for you and even investigate the accident if it’s necessary. The insurance company works with a team of lawyers and you shouldn’t go into the process on your own. Things might appear clear, and the insurers will still do their best not to offer you the deserved amount.

  • Now that reality has set in, I want to thank you for all your work and assistance in obtaining my settlement for the pelvic mesh. This money will make my life so much easier in the future.

  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.


  • My experience during the time of negotiations was extremely positive. Josh Sandberg handled my lawsuit with the utmost integrity. He returned all my phone calls in a timely manner and answered all my questions. Josh made things less stressful. I would highly recommend Josh and the entire staff at Cellino Law.


  • Cellino Law was a great company to work with. From the beginning they came out and met with my uncle and myself and assured us that everything would be taken care of from beginning to end our lawyer state and constant contact with us to make sure that everything would go smoothly and it did. I would definitely recommend anybody to go to Cellino Law for whatever help they need. And specifically please ask for the lawyer that we had Mr. Alan Silverstein. He was amazing and his staff was always attentive. Please go with them for your next law needs.


  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • I want to thank your law firm for settling my lawsuit where others failed. You treated me with the utmost respect and care, because of your law firm the dream of owning my own home finally came true. For the first time in a long time, we're living out our dream home. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for making my dream come true.
