After a car accident in Brooklyn

By Prev Info - February 22, 2022

A car accident happens in a moment, but the after effects can linger for months or even years. If you've been injured in a car accident, you know that, as frightening and painful as the accident is, it's just the beginning. You may be facing enormous medical bills, difficult and painful emotional or physical therapy, and increased financial burdens due to your inability to work. 

Everyone knows that dealing with insurance companies is difficult, time-consuming and often gets you nowhere.  We also know how to challenge those tactics and strategies, and how to fight to obtain the settlement, award or verdict you need.

What To Do Next

After a car accident in Brooklyn or anywhere in New York City, there are a number of key steps you should take to protect your legal rights. First, and most important: call immediately to get professional medical attention. Exchange contact information with the other drivers. This should include their names and addresses, of course, but also their driver's license state and number, their insurance company name, and their policy number. Contact your own insurance company and let them know about the accident. However, do NOT give them a written or recorded statement about the accident. Before giving them any kind of formal statement, you need to determine the full extent of your injuries. You also need to get the advice of an attorney with extensive experience handling car accident cases.

Once you've taken those steps, you can now consider whether legal action is a viable strategy. The following topics can help you make that decision: General Accident Claims - Catastrophic Collisions
