Brooklyn Work-Related Car Accidents Lawyer

Work-related car accidents can happen at any given moment. The nature of your job does not affect your chances: whether you are driving from one job site to another, commuting to work, or driving a taxi, you are equally at risk of being injured.

If you are ever injured in an accident while driving for work, you are likely entitled to recover compensation. However, to optimize your chances of securing what you may be owed, it is wise to seek representation from a qualified Brooklyn work-related car accident attorney. Our experts at Shulman & Hill will help you pursue a reasonable amount of compensation and be your best source of legal advice.

Brooklyn Work-Related Car Accidents: What You Need to Know

It is important to exercise caution when driving in a busy area like Brooklyn. Car accidents are statistically more common in Brooklyn than in any other New York City borough.

Unfortunately, even if you are a responsible driver, it is still possible to be involved in a car accident resulting from someone else’s negligence.

Other drivers on the road are not the only ones who may put you in a dangerous situation. You could potentially be injured in a Brooklyn work-related car accident if, for instance, your vehicle’s manufacturer overlooked a defect, or if you encountered hazardous conditions due to poor road maintenance.

Potential Consequences of Brooklyn Work-Related Car Accidents

The struggles you may face if you are injured in a car accident can include both financial and non-financial losses. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may require medical assistance or hospitalization. If your injuries do require treatment, there will be medical bills. Additionally, you may be advised to restrain from working while you recover physically. This means that you may not be able to receive your usual paycheck.

You might also struggle with mental or emotional trauma, anxiety, and stress, all of which require additional time to process and heal from.

You deserve to be compensated for all of your losses accordingly. Hiring a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn will surely improve your chances of recovering a fair payout.

How to Seek Compensation After a Brooklyn Work-Related Car Accident

If you are hurt in a Brooklyn work-related car accident, you can seek compensation for your losses by filing a workers’ compensation claim. In New York, an employer is normally required to have insurance to compensate employees who are injured on the job.

Be aware that filing a claim may not lead to an immediate payout. The following are key reasons you are more likely to collect what you may be owed if you enlist the help of a work-related car accidents law firm in Brooklyn:

Proving your claim is valid

Insurance companies may try to avoid paying claimants if possible. When you file a workers’ compensation claim, the insurer will first analyze your case to ensure there is enough proof you were not injured due to your own negligence.

A workers’ compensation claim can only be valid if your accident genuinely occurred when you were on the job. Your claim may also be deemed invalid if your accident was the result of intoxication on your part, or if it occurred because you were driving recklessly. Insurers may also argue that an employee intentionally caused the accident in hopes of a payout.

To ensure your claim is approved, you need to present sufficient evidence showing your accident was truly work-related. A skilled personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn can help you do so. Our Brooklyn work-related car accident lawyers can thoroughly investigate your case to show that it was not the result of your own negligence.

Determining how much compensation to seek

You can file a workers’ compensation claim to cover lost wages, medical bills, and other damages. We will account for all your losses when determining how much compensation you may be entitled to. However, workers’ compensation does not cover such losses as pain and suffering or damage to your vehicle.

If your accident resulted from another party’s negligence, you may seek additional compensation by filing a claim against their insurance. You simply need to know who the negligent party is in order to do so. This is another reason coordinating with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn may help your case. Our investigation will identify all parties responsible for compensating you.

Negotiating

If an insurer is unable to deny your claim, they may still attempt to pay out as little as possible. That is why insurers prefer that claimants work with them directly, rather than seek legal representation. An insurer will have more luck convincing you to accept a lower offer if you do not have an attorney on your side or extensive negotiating experience.

Along with negotiating for a fair settlement by showing the nature of your injuries justifies the amount of compensation you are seeking, an attorney can also handle all major correspondence with the insurance companies.

Additionally, allowing your lawyer to handle the claims process will give you more time to focus on your recovery. Getting back on your feet physically and mentally is crucial in the aftermath of a car accident.
