Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer

A serious personal injury can mean weeks, months or even years away from work, or even the end of ever holding a job again. Medical bills can prove enormous, even for people covered by insurance.

If personal injuries occurred through no fault of your own and because of another party’s negligence or reckless behavior, a Brooklyn personal injury lawyer will work hard to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Types of Accidents

While motor vehicle accidents – cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles – result in a large percentage of personal injuries, they are far from the only causes. Other common types of personal injuries that a Brooklyn injury attorney can help with include:

  • Mass transit – bus and subway – accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Assault
  • Lead poisoning
  • Dog bites
  • Construction accidents

Common Injuries

It is no secret that New York can be a very dangerous place for motorists and pedestrians alike. Accidents can cause some serious injuries, including:

  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Emotional trauma

A person suffering any of these injuries could be facing weeks, months, or even years of recovery, which could cost an untold amount in medical bills.

New York Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims varies by state. In New York, it is three years from the time of the accident. If the accident involved any sort of government entity, such as the city or state of New York, or the federal government, the statute of limitation is much shorter.

That is why it is important to contact a Brooklyn personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Once the time under the statute of limitation expires, injured parties cannot pursue a claim.

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

An injured person must focus on recovery. The person wants and needs help. Perhaps an insurance representative offers a settlement, but it is crucial to never accept a settlement offer before speaking with an injury attorney.

Insurance companies are not out to do what is best for the injured person – they are out to save money for the insurance company. Once an injured person accepts an insurance company’s offer, the matter is ended.

A Brooklyn personal injury attorney knows the amount of money necessary for a fair settlement. The majority of personal injury cases are settled, but if necessary an attorney will go to court and fight for the client’s rights. Brooklyn personal injury lawyers hire experts and do the investigations required to protect clients.

Lawyers work with medical personnel, rehabilitation therapists, accident re-constructionists, design engineers and other professionals to prove both the case and the scope of the injured person’s future needs.
