Brooklyn Car Accidents

Car accidents can be devastating. know that the injuries you suffer in a car accident can throw your life into chaos with skyrocketing medical bills and a loss of income.

After an accident, you may have medical bills and living expenses you can't pay, all while grappling with the loss of income, since your injury may not permit you to work. You may also face lost pension benefits. There may also be costs stemming from the accident that are equally debilitating: physical pain, mental suffering, even overwhelming feelings of grief if you lost a loved one in the accident.

You may think your accident was clearly the other driver's fault and that you will have no problem obtaining a settlement, but the insurance company may well decide to stall, deny your claim or offer you far less money than you deserve. In addition, the laws and regulations governing auto accidents in New York City are complicated. No Fault benefits, for example, must be filed within 30 days of the accident or the insurance company may no longer have to pay your medical bills or lost earnings.

In 2008, more than 1,200 traffic-related fatalities occurred in New York State, along with thousands of injuries from car, truck and taxi accidents. In Brooklyn, some of the worst accidents occur on the busy highways and thoroughfares, including the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, the Gowanus Expressway, the Prospect Expressway and the Belt Parkway. Severe injuries resulting from these accidents include back injuries, broken bones, traumatic brain injury and closed head injuries and severe scarring.

For many accident victims, the trauma of the accident lingers long after it is over. Many victims need extensive – and expensive – medical treatment and therapy. These treatments may require months or even years of doctors visits and rehabilitation. You may be uninsured, or your treatment may go over the limits of your insurance plan since many plans limit the amount of money the company will pay, either per year or for the lifetime of the individual. Even if you are insured, you may have to fight to get the insurance company to pay your bills.

In addition to physical injuries, you will likely suffer emotional trauma from the accident. This trauma may take many forms: a fear of driving or riding in a car, perhaps, or an inability to accomplish daily tasks. Even worse, if you lost a loved one in the crash, you may struggle with grief and despair.

As an accident survivor, you may not be fully recovered for months after that trip to the emergency room. The last thing you need to worry about in this situation is having enough money to pay the medical bills, or how to pay your expenses if you've been unable to return to work.

Determining Fault

Some Brooklyn auto accidents may be simply that – an accident. In other car accidents, multiple factors may be at play. But some Brooklyn accidents are clearly caused by irresponsible drivers. If you've been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by negligent or illegal driving behavior, it's important to establish fault. Determining blame for the accident is an essential part of proving an accident claim.
