Nassau County Community
“There could be no healthier place to bring children up.” – Teddy Roosevelt on Nassau County
Nassau County is the home to over 1.3 million New Yorkers. Kaplan Lawyers PC is also happy to call this wonderful community home. Nassau County boasts a rich history and several amazing beaches, among many other offerings.
We are proud to serve residents of Nassau County. Before we look at how we help our clients, let’s first examine a brief history of Nassau County.
A Brief Look at the History of Nassau County
The original inhabitants of what we now call Nassau County were Massapequa, Merioke and Rockaway Native Americans. In the 17th century, the Dutch and, eventually, the English made settlements in the region.
On January 1st of 1899, Nassau Country was officially formed, the result of a dispute over the exclusion of then-Queen’s County’s western towns from Greater New York the year before. A population boom in Nassau County over the next three decades was fueled by the Long Island Rail Road, which was the primary means of transportation to New York City by the turn of the century.
The suburban quality of Nassau County began after World War II. Veterans flocked to the area to take advantage of affordable homes and to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Today, Nassau County is still viewed as a suburban area; Teddy Roosevelt would be happy to know that it is still a great place to raise children.
We’re Proud to Serve Nassau County
Kaplan Lawyers PC is happy to represent clients across Nassau County, including Glen Cove, Long Beach, Hempstead and Oyster Bay. Our firm represents people who have suffered injuries due to someone else’s negligence. These injuries can occur in several different ways, including:
- Vehicle Accidents – Car crashes are one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. In Nassau County, some of the most severe accidents occur on the biggest roads, which include I-495, Northern State Parkway, Southern State Parkway, Meadowbrook State Parkway and Wantagh State Parkway.
- Workplace Injuries – Workers have the right to a safe workplace, yet in 2015 alone, there were nearly 150,000 workplace injuries and illnesses in New York. That doesn’t include the workers who lost their lives due to on-the-job injuries. Many of our clients work in construction, an industry known for its dangerous work environments.
- Medical Malpractice – We depend on healthcare providers to take care of us when we are sick or injured. When doctors or nurses fail to provide a reasonable level of care, a patient might be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim to receive compensation for the damages they’ve suffered.
- Premises Accidents – Owners of businesses, public places and private residents have an obligation to keep their premises safe for guests, visitors or customers. If they fail to keep their properties safe and someone suffers an injury as a result, then the injured person can file a claim to receive compensation.
