Bronx Car Accident Lawyer

Between 2016 and 2020, the number of vehicles on the road in the U.S. increased by over 15 million. There is often a direct correlation between an increase in vehicles on the road and the accidents that may follow as a result.

The damages one may sustain in the aftermath of a car accident can be immense. These accidents not only have the potential to cause bodily harm or death, but they may also lead to lost wages and legal issues. These incidents can change your life as you know it and take a financial and emotional toll on you and your family.

If you or a loved one was injured in a Bronx car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, like most things in life, it will not come easy. Insurance companies may fight hard to prevent you from pursuing the financial compensation you may be entitled to.

No matter the type of accident, we can fight for you and treat you with respect and compassion throughout the legal process.

You do not have to do this alone. Contact us today to learn more.

What Causes Bronx Car Accidents?

Sadly, road accidents are a dangerous and devastating part of driving. Due to fatigue, bad weather, intoxicated drivers, and road hazards, car accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. Even when you stay alert and vigilant while driving, you may still be involved in a car accident.

Car accidents are common throughout all of New York City’s boroughs, including the Bronx. When you take the entire state of New York into account, there are about 292 car accident-related deaths a year.

This is quite a staggering number when you consider the countless other accidents that resulted in property damage, trauma, and death. New York saw an average of 1,098 deaths and over 12,000 hospitalizations due to motor vehicle accidents in 2012-2014 alone.

Of course, these are just statistics. Numbers do not tell the whole story and they cannot quantify the pain and emotional turmoil that a car accident victim and their family may struggle to deal with. If you lost a loved one in a Bronx car accident, you may be able to pursue justice on their behalf.

Work-Related Car Accidents in the Bronx

Whether you drive a bus, a delivery truck, or your own car, you can be a driver by trade. Unfortunately, accidents that happen while you are on the clock for work can be a lot more complicated than those you might experience in your normal day-to-day life. A few examples include:

  • Traffic crashes with cabs and rideshare operators
  • Accidents involving city buses
  • Accidents involving police and fire trucks
  • Ambulance crashes
  • Delivery truck accidents

If you find yourself in a work-related car accident, you should reach out to a workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected while you pursue compensation.

Provisions for Rideshare Operators

Because of the influx of rideshare options like Uber and Lyft, a number of people have begun to pick up freelance driving. Although it is difficult to remember a time before ridesharing, it is still a relatively new concept.

At this point in time, ridesharing accidents often lack formal regulatory agencies to oversee them, unlike taxis and public transportation. In worst-case scenarios, drivers are often left to fend for themselves.

If you do not know how to proceed after an Uber or Lyft accident, you can reach out to an experienced Bronx law firm like Shulman & Hill.

What to Do After a Bronx Car Accident?

If you have been injured in a car accident in the Bronx area, you should first seek medical assistance as soon as possible. This is important not only because your injuries could get progressively worse over time, but also because it creates a paper trail documenting your injuries. This can help you when pursuing compensation in the future.

Additionally, if you were injured in a car accident at work, you want to file a report with your employer as soon as possible. After you have done so, request a copy that you can then add to a personal file. This will not only provide you with evidence, but it can also make it difficult for your employer and their insurance company to talk you out of filing a claim and pursuing compensation.

How Can a Bronx Car Accident Law Firm Help?

If you have been injured in a Bronx car accident, our lawyers can investigate the cause of your accident. If we find that another driver’s negligence caused the accident, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf to hold them financially accountable for your injuries.

A car accident lawsuit can help recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
