What Should Be In An Emergency Roadside Car Kit

The road can be a dangerous place.  Accidents and breakdowns will happen.  That's why drivers should be prepared with a roadside emergency kit.

By preparing an emergency kit and keeping it in the vehicle, a driver will make a dangerous situation (being stuck on the side of the road) much safer.

A little preparation goes a long way in an emergency.  Plan ahead now so you're ready for whatever the road throws at you.

SOME THINGS THAT COULD BE INCLUDED IN AN EMERGENCY KIT ARE:

  • jumper cables
  • extra engine oil
  • bottled water and snacks
  • emergency flares
  • flashlight with extra batteries
  • ice scraper
  • spare tire, jack, and lug wrench
  • tire inflator
  • blanket, hat and gloves
  • basic tool kit
  • rags
  • shovel
  • first aid kit

$4 Million Settlement for DHL worker Struck By Forklift at Airport

A 31 year old delivery person from Suffolk County, New York was struck in the back by a forklift at a local airport severely injuring his neck and back.  The experienced attorneys at Buttafuoco & Associates were able to obtain a video surveillance tape showing the actual accident.  Armed with the video, we were able to get a court order determining that the accident was 100% the fault of the forklift operator.  The delivery person was unable to return to work due to back and neck injuries which required surgery.  The case was settled at a mediation.
