Deer Park is a hamlet tucked away in the northeast corner of the Town of Babylon. Founded in 1853, about 11 years after the Long Island Railroad arrived, Deer Park was once known as the fruit basket of New York. Farming was a staple of the town for much of its history until the suburban sprawl of the post World War II years.

Today, more than 28,000 residents, over 9,500 households and 7,400 families in Deer Park form a racially, ethically and otherwise diverse community. With its many roads and streets, retail shops, restaurants, public parks, Deer Park offers many amenities. At the same time, the area is relatively congested, much like the rest of Long Island, which increases the likelihood of accidents and injuries.

If you have been injured in Deer Park, you may have many concerns. Where can I obtain proper medical care? How will I cover the medical bills? When can I go back to my normal routine?

How much is my Deer Park personal injury claim worth?

While each injury claim is unique, you may be awarded compensation that includes economic and noneconomic damages:

  • Economic damages cover lost wages, past and future medical expenses, property damage, and similar financial losses
  • Noneconomic damages are designed to compensate your losses such as pain and suffering, physical disability, disfigurement, loss of limb, and loss of enjoyment of life.

It is worth noting that injury claims in Deer Park are subject to New York’s rules of comparative negligence. Therefore, if you contributed to the accident in any way, the amount of compensation you receive will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you by a claims adjuster or the court. If you have been injured in a car accident and found to be partially at fault, a determination will be made about the degree of comparative fault. If, for example, you are found to be 20 percent at fault and the amount of assessed damages was $10,000, your award will be reduced to $8,000.
