Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer

Accidents that leave you with significant injuries can happen for many reasons. It is not uncommon for someone else’s negligence to cause such an accident. 

Have you or a loved one in the Brooklyn, NY area been harmed in an accident through no fault of your own? If so, review your case with a Brooklyn personal injury attorney at Shulman & Hill. We will help you determine if you are entitled to compensation for such losses as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.


Brooklyn Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases come in a wide variety of forms. The following are merely some of the types of cases our personal injury law firm in Brooklyn handles:


Premises liability cases

If you are on someone’s property (and you have a legal right to be there), the property owner, manager, or other such relevant party has a legal responsibility to protect you from hazards that could cause injury. You can seek compensation for your losses if you are harmed because they neglected this responsibility.


Auto accidents and other vehicular accidents

The way in which you go about pursuing compensation after being injured in an accident involving some type of vehicle varies depending on the circumstances. For example, because New York is a “no-fault” state, if you are hurt in a car crash, you would first pursue compensation by filing a claim with your own insurance, even if someone else caused the accident. On the other hand, if you are injured in an accident involving a train, you would likely file a claim against the negligent party’s insurance.

Knowing how to proceed when seeking compensation after an accident can be very difficult if you are not familiar with all the applicable laws. Fortunately, our personal injury lawyers in Brooklyn have the expertise necessary to help you effectively pursue what you are owed.


Accidental death

Losing a loved one unexpectedly does not just leave you with severe emotional pain. It can also have a long-term impact on many areas of your life, including your finances, personal responsibilities, and more. If a loved one died as a result of someone else’s negligence, schedule a meeting with a Brooklyn personal injury lawyer to discuss your options.


Pedestrian accidents

In a busy environment like Brooklyn, pedestrians need to be on the lookout to avoid hazards. Unfortunately, even if you are vigilant when navigating this city, you may still be involved in an accident if someone else is unreasonably careless. We can help you secure the compensation to which you are entitled if this ever happens.


Dog bites and animal attacks

Just as property owners have a responsibility to keep guests and employees safe, so too do dogs and other pet owners have a responsibility to ensure their pets do not harm others. Victims are often entitled to compensation when pet owners are negligent.


Workers’ compensation

Employees in New York State typically have the option of filing workers’ compensation claims when they are injured in on-the-job accidents. However, if you do not have legal representation, getting a claim approved in a timely manner may be more difficult than you anticipate. To avoid paying you, an insurer may try to argue that your accident was not actually work-related.

It is often necessary to investigate such cases thoroughly to prove your claim should be approved. Our Brooklyn personal injury attorneys will conduct such an investigation, presenting the evidence needed to show that you are genuinely entitled to workers’ compensation.


The Benefits of Working With a Brooklyn Personal Injury Law Firm

The above list covers merely a few of the types of Brooklyn personal injury cases we at Shulman & Hill take on. Regardless of the specific nature of your case, when seeking compensation, it is wise to hire a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn instead of working directly with the insurance companies.

You already know that we are ready to investigate your case and gather crucial evidence. Other ways we can help include (but are not necessarily limited to) the following:


Identifying liable parties

Sometimes it is unclear who is responsible for compensating you in a Brooklyn personal injury case. If you are involved in a Brooklyn truck accident, although the trucking company may be the liable party, there remain other possibilities. Perhaps your accident was actually the result of negligence on the part of a truck’s manufacturer or designer. By investigating your accident thoroughly, we will determine who you should seek compensation from.


Determining what you are owed

Often, many losses must be accounted for when calculating how much compensation you are entitled to. Along with strictly financial losses, such as medical bills and lost wages (if you cannot return to work due to the severity of your injuries), you may be entitled to compensation for pain, emotional trauma, and other losses that do not necessarily have an absolute dollar value. We will review all your losses to determine how much compensation you should ask for when filing a claim.


Corresponding with insurers

Our Brooklyn personal injury attorneys can handle all major correspondence with the insurance companies throughout the claims process.

This does not merely give you more time to focus on recovering after an accident. Insurers would prefer that claimants work with them directly, as that makes it easier for them to convince injured parties to settle for less than their claims are worth. We have the experience and training necessary to effectively negotiate for the full amount of compensation you’re entitled to.

Our primary goal is to reach an appropriate settlement in a reasonable timeframe. However, we want to ensure you collect sufficient compensation given the extent and severity of your losses. Thus, if we cannot reach a fair settlement with an insurance company, we will go to court to pursue damages.


Why Choose Shulman & Hill?

Many personal injury law firms in Brooklyn advertise themselves by insisting their attorneys are qualified to handle your case and offer aggressive representation. Not all firms can legitimately deliver on such promises.

That is why we do not ask for blind faith when we take on new clients. Instead, we reference our numerous past successes. We will gladly cite real-world examples to clearly illustrate why we are the right firm for your needs. To learn more, call us today at 212-221-1000 or schedule a free consultation online.
