Brooklyn Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Brooklyn is a vibrant and dynamic borough. It is a popular destination for tourists and New Yorkers alike. However, Brooklyn’s appeal also makes it very crowded. Remember, as a pedestrian you need to be vigilant to limit your chances of being injured.

Unfortunately, even if you are cautious while roaming the streets of Brooklyn, the possibility to be involved in an accident remains. You may be entitled to compensation if you are ever injured as a result of someone else’s negligence. Discuss your options with a Brooklyn pedestrian accident attorney at Shulman & Hill to learn more.

What You Need to Know About Brooklyn Pedestrian Accidents

The importance of keeping an eye out for hazards in Brooklyn cannot be overstated. Statistics indicate pedestrian deaths in New York City are on the rise. Reports also suggest that this is not due to pedestrian carelessness, rather drivers are the primary culprits.

This is at least partially due to the rise of smartphones. Drivers are now frequently distracted. When one is looking down at their phone while navigating Brooklyn’s streets, they might hit a pedestrian or drive while the red light is on.

Common Causes of Brooklyn Pedestrian Accidents Caused by Drivers

Distracted driving is just one potential cause of Brooklyn pedestrian accidents. Other causes include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Intoxicated driving,
  • Sleep-deprived driving (which can be just as dangerous as drunk driving),
  • Vehicle defects,
  • Speeding,
  • Hazardous road conditions,
  • Defective or malfunctioning traffic signals.

Regardless of the specific cause of your Brooklyn pedestrian accident, if you believe it was the result of another party’s negligence, meet with a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn sooner rather than later. If you are entitled to compensation, we will help you pursue it effectively.

Potential Consequences of Brooklyn Pedestrian Accidents

The struggles and losses you might face in the aftermath of a Brooklyn pedestrian accident can vary depending on the severity of your injuries. You may be left with slight bruises and cut, or require hospitalization. In any case, your injuries may leave you with costly medical bills.

If you acquire a debilitating injury, you might be unable to do your work, which will prevent you from earning a paycheck until you fully recover.

This adds to your financial burden. You may also struggle with non-financial losses, such as pain, anxiety, and emotional trauma, all of which require more time for recovery.

You deserve to be compensated accordingly. Coordinating with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn can maximize your chances of reaching an appropriate settlement.

How a Brooklyn Pedestrian Accident Law Firm Helps

To start the process of potentially recovering compensation for your losses after a Brooklyn pedestrian accident, you will need to file a claim against the insurance of the negligent party.

Filing a claim does not immediately lead to a payout. There is a lot of paperwork and possibly negotiating in the process. Below are some key reasons why enlisting the help of a Brooklyn pedestrian accident lawyer could be valuable:

Investigating

Investigating an accident before filing a claim is critical. An investigation must yield evidence showing you have enough reasons to believe your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence.

Additionally, an investigation will help specifically identify the liable side. In some instances, it is not immediately clear who a negligent party may be.

You can only seek compensation from those whose negligence genuinely caused your accident. Our Brooklyn pedestrian accident lawyers have access to all resources necessary to investigate your circumstances and determine who those parties are.

Accounting for all losses

Determining how much your claim is worth is more challenging than one might anticipate. Along with accounting for the financial losses that you have already incurred, you may also have to estimate the value of future financial losses resulting from your accident.

Our attorneys are experienced in working with these types of claims. To ensure the amount of compensation you are seeking is appropriate given the extent of your losses and injuries, hire a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn. They will calculate a fair payout sum based on the information provided.

Negotiating with insurers

Insurance companies negotiate with you to pay out less than you may be entitled to. If they believe they can argue you have not provided sufficient evidence to prove the insured was negligent, they may even deny your claim altogether.

This highlights one of the most critical reasons working with a Brooklyn pedestrian accident attorney when filing a claim can be beneficial. They can gather evidence to show that your accident was a result of negligence on the part of the insured. An attorney can highlight that you are entitled to the full amount of compensation that you are requesting. The exact amount of compensation can also be determined by the attorney.

Claimants may not be prepared to negotiate with insurance companies, which is why it is helpful to have a skilled professional by your side. If you do not have a lawyer, an insurer may have a better chance of convincing you to settle for a lower offer.

It is best to take the best opportunity to reach a fair settlement by working with a personal injury law firm to avoid unfair treatment. Keep in mind, if we are unable to reach a fair settlement, we are prepared to go to court on your behalf.
