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.

  • I really just wanted to say thank you so much for taking my case, answering all my questions, and mostly for being very patient with me. I feel that without you and Roza I would not have been able to get anything at all. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will definitely want you both working for me. Again thank your for you hard work, time and patience.


  • This is to express our gratitude to you and your team in helping us and Stephanie navigate through the legal process following her car accident. We are very satisfied with the outcome and grateful for your hard work and attention to details. We fell confident that with this compensation, Stephanie will be able to move forward with her studies and her life with the ability to care for some of her health needs resulting from the injuries sustained following her car accident. Thank you very much and may God continue to bless your efforts.

  • 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. Medicare just isn't sufficient. I know that I will have enough to live on. I truly appreciate of your efforts. Thank you!


  • Thank you for your time, effort, and hard work on my case. I appreciate your expertise and compassion. I never experienced what I went through and I would have been completely lost without you.


  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.


  • 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.
