Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Whether it’s a car accident on Brooklyn’s crowded streets, a slip and fall in one of its many businesses, or medical malpractice at one of the borough’s hospitals, injuries can happen anywhere and at any time. Our Brooklyn personal injury lawyers have secured favorable outcomes for clients in a wide range of cases, and we’re ready to do the same for you.

What Is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is any physical or mental harm resulting from someone else’s negligence or intentional misconduct. If another person or entity is responsible for your injury, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury claim.

Auto Accidents

Brooklyn’s busy streets and highways can be dangerous for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists alike. We’ve handled countless auto accident cases in Brooklyn and are well-versed in investigating motor vehicle accidents to determine liability.

Motorcycle

Without the protection of a car’s frame, airbags, or seatbelts, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to serious injuries in accidents. They also face an unfair stigma as reckless riders, but we don’t buy into that stereotype. If you’ve suffered an injury while riding a motorcycle in Brooklyn, our team will fight for your rights and hold negligent drivers accountable.

Pedestrian

Many Brooklyn residents get around on foot, and they have the right to do so safely. Unfortunately, negligent drivers often fail to yield or obey traffic laws, causing serious harm to innocent pedestrians. If you’ve been hit by a car while walking in Brooklyn, we can help you seek the compensation you deserve.

Bicycle

Brooklyn is a great city for cycling, but even the most experienced riders can fall victim to careless drivers. We understand the unique laws and challenges surrounding bicycle accidents and are committed to advocating for injured cyclists in Brooklyn.

Rideshare

The popularity of ridesharing services has increased the number of vehicles on Brooklyn’s roads, leading to more accidents involving Uber or Lyft drivers. Insurance coverage and liability can be complex in these cases, but our team has the experience to navigate them and get results.

MTA/Public Transportation Accidents

With a large public transportation system like New York’s, accidents are bound to happen. If you’ve been injured on MTA buses and trains or other forms of public transportation in Brooklyn, we can help you understand your rights and pursue legal action against the responsible parties.

Catastrophic Injuries

Some accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or amputations. These types of injuries require extensive medical treatment and can permanently affect every aspect of a person’s life. If you or someone you love has suffered a catastrophic injury in Brooklyn, our team can help you seek the compensation needed to cover your medical expenses and support your future care needs.

Slip and Falls

Property owners have a legal duty to maintain reasonably safe premises for visitors. If your slip and fall injury resulted from a property owner’s failure to maintain safe conditions, you can count on us to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Workplace Accidents

As Brooklyn grows and thrives, the number of construction sites also increases. While safety regulations are in place to protect workers, accidents can still happen due to negligence or misconduct. If you have been injured on a construction site or other workplace in Brooklyn, we can help you determine if you have grounds for a third-party personal injury lawsuit.

Wrongful Death

The unexpected loss of a loved one unexpectedly can leave a family devastated both emotionally and financially. If someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence has caused your loved one’s untimely death, we can assist you in pursuing a New York wrongful death claim.

Personal Injury FAQs

It’s normal to have questions after experiencing a traumatic injury. Our team has compiled a list of commonly asked questions to help you better understand the personal injury claims process and how we can help.

1.

What Expenses Are Covered by a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim aims to compensate you for the full extent of the damages you have suffered due to your injury. These damages are categorized as economic or non-economic.

Economic damages compensate for specific monetary losses, such as past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, assistive devices, and disability-related home and vehicle modifications. Non-economic damages cover the intangible effects on a victim’s life, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.

2.

Are There Time Limits to Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Brooklyn?

Yes, there is a deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Brooklyn. This is known as the statute of limitations. New York’s personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of injury. Exceptions apply in some cases, but it is always best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

3.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer?

We understand that financial concerns may be a barrier to seeking legal representation, which is why our firm handles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. Under this arrangement, our attorneys handle your case from start to finish with no out-of-pocket cost to you, even if we need to go to trial. Our fees are paid as a percentage of your settlement or court award. If we do not recover compensation, you owe us nothing.

This approach also means it’s free to explore your legal rights. We offer free consultations, so you have nothing to lose by speaking with us about your case. We can evaluate the facts of your situation and advise you regarding the potential next steps. There is no financial commitment from you.

4.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Claim Take?

The length of a personal injury claim can vary depending on the case’s specific circumstances. Generally, it takes six months to several years to fully resolve a personal injury claim. Building a strong case takes time, and certain steps—such as discovery, mediation, and determining the full extent of your injuries—can further extend the process. If your case goes to trial, it will add significant time.

We strive to resolve cases as efficiently and effectively as possible, but we never rush the process at the expense of our clients’ best interests.

What Courts Handle Personal Injury Litigation in Brooklyn?

Most personal injury cases are settled outside of court. However, sometimes insurers and at-fault parties refuse to offer a fair settlement. In these cases, our Brooklyn personal injury attorneys may discuss the possibility of taking your case to court.

If we agree to move forward with litigation, we will likely file suit in the following court:

Kings County Supreme Court
360 Adams St.
Brooklyn, NY 11201
