Brooklyn Car Accident Lawyer

Drivers should be cautious when navigating Brooklyn’s busy streets. In such a dense and high-traffic area, the risk of being harmed in an accident is greater than in a less crowded area.

While you yourself might be aware of this and exercise caution accordingly, it is still possible to be involved in a Brooklyn car accident. Meet with a Brooklyn car accident attorney at Shulman & Hill if this ever happens. You may be entitled to compensation for losses such as your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A skilled attorney can help guide you through the process.

What You Need to Know About Brooklyn Car Accidents

Statistics indicate motor vehicle accidents are more common in Brooklyn than in any other New York City borough. Causes of Brooklyn car accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Speeding or otherwise failing to obey the rules of the road
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving, which is becoming an increasingly significant problem due to the popularity of smartphones
  • Sleep-deprived driving, which can be as dangerous as drunk driving
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Vehicle defects

Brooklyn Car Accidents: Dangerous Intersections

Whenever you are behind the wheel, it is important to operate your vehicle responsibly and keep an eye out for hazards. A car accident can occur anywhere in Brooklyn, yet there are certain areas where extra caution is necessary. The following are among the most dangerous Brooklyn intersections in regards to car accident frequency:

  • Tillary Street and Flatbush Avenue
  • Atlantic Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue
  • Erskine Street and Seaview Avenue
  • Atlantic Avenue and Conduit Boulevard
  • Flatbush Avenue and Empire Boulevard

In fact, those are some of the most dangerous in the entire city and require extra caution.

Brooklyn Car Accidents: Seeking Compensation

The aftermath of a Brooklyn car accident will likely be difficult. Along with facing the natural challenges that recovering from your injuries will involve, you may also be burdened with costly medical bills. Your injuries may be so severe that you are unable to return to work and earn a paycheck.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

There is a limit to how much compensation your insurance can provide after a car accident. The money you receive may not be sufficient to cover your losses. New York law allows car accident victims to seek additional compensation from negligent parties if they can prove their injuries and losses are serious enough to justify doing so. For example, if you are eligible to recover losses for pain and suffering, you may be able to file a third-party claim or lawsuit against the driver who was at fault for the accident.

This highlights another benefit of working with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn. We can determine if your injuries meet the necessary criteria. If so, we can help you pursue compensation from those whose negligence caused your accident.

Negotiating With Insurers

Filing a claim after a Brooklyn car accident does not guarantee immediate payment. As a business, some insurance companies may tend to prioritize their own financial interests. They might try to convince you to accept less compensation than you are genuinely entitled to.

Being supported in these situations is just one of the reasons to consult with a personal injury lawyer before filing a claim. Our Brooklyn car accident lawyers are familiar with the negotiation tactics often used by insurers. Enlisting the help of a car accident law firm can maximize your chances of collecting the full amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.

How Our Car Accident Law Firm in Brooklyn Can Help

The attorneys at Shulman & Hill can help you collect what you may be entitled to in the following key ways:

Investigating your Brooklyn car accident

Before pursuing compensation from a negligent party for your injuries, you must first know how your accident was caused.

In many cases, a Brooklyn car accident is the result of another driver’s carelessness, although there are other causes as well. Negligence on the part of vehicle manufacturers, government agencies responsible for addressing hazardous road conditions, and other relevant parties could also be the cause of an accident.

Our team at Shulman & Hill is prepared to thoroughly investigate your case. Our investigation can help you identify any and all negligent parties.

Fighting for fair compensation

Understanding which losses can be compensated after a car accident and for how much can be difficult if you are unfamiliar with the process. Our car accident legal experts will account for all of your relevant losses, including pain and suffering and lost wages, to ensure that you are seeking all the compensation you may be entitled to.

Handling the claims process

The process of securing compensation after a Brooklyn car accident can involve a wide range of tasks, such as filing paperwork, corresponding with insurers, presenting evidence, and more. You do not need to handle these tasks yourself. You should instead focus your attention on resting and recovering from your injuries. We will handle the claims process for you.
