According to local legend, the scenic hamlet of Smithtown was established by its namesake, Richard Smith, in the 1660s after receiving the land as a reward for rescuing the daughter of the area’s Native American chief. The chief, as it has been told, offered Smith as much land as he could encircle on a bull in a day. Smith waited until the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, hopped on his bull Whisper, and proceeded to acquire nearly 110 square miles of land on which to build his settlement.

For What Types of Injury Causes Can Our Lawyers Provide Experienced Legal Support?
Nothing is more important to you than your health, but, unfortunately, there are numerous daily threats to your precious health and safety. Along with destructive acts of nature, negligent people are the other constant source of injury risk. Major personal injury takes its toll on the victim’s future, through lost wages, pain and suffering, and the rising cost of medical bills.
According to the New York Department of Health, car accidents in Suffolk County were cited as the cause for the deaths of 11 people, the hospitalization of 122, and the emergency room (ER) visits of nearly 1,500 on average per month between the years 2012 and 2014. Annually, the cost in medical bills for these accidents averaged $114.2 million in hospital costs and $57.4 million in ER charges in the same time period.
