New York Personal Injury Attorneys
Brooklyn Car Accident Attorney
Most people are involved in several car accidents during their lifetime, and fortunately, many of those accidents result in minor injuries and property damage. In more severe cases, however, recovering from a car accident goes well beyond a doctor’s visit and some minor inconvenience.
Under New York’s no-fault car accident laws, injury victims are typically entitled to compensation for lost wages and medical expenses, regardless of fault. When injuries are considered ‘serious,’ the recovery process can be more complicated, and injury victims may have to pursue a bodily injury claim for compensation. If you have been injured in a car accident, contact a Brooklyn car accident lawyer at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo P.C., to schedule a no-cost consultation.

How A Brooklyn Car Accident Attorney Can Help
New York’s car accident laws are complex, but our attorneys know the laws and how they apply to different accident scenarios in Brooklyn. We will always pursue injury claims with your physical and financial recovery in mind, which means that our attorneys will not encourage you to accept a settlement offer that does not fairly compensate you for your injuries.
Settling personal injury cases is often preferable to litigation because it saves our clients from the lengthy trial process and allows them to secure compensation more quickly. However, if you do not receive fair and reasonable settlement offers for your injuries, our New York car accident attorneys will be prepared to fight for the compensation that you deserve at trial.
New York’s Car Accident Laws
Depending on the circumstances of your case, there are several paths you may be able to take for Brooklyn car accident claims:
No-fault claim – New York is a no-fault car accident state, so drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists who are injured in an accident in Brooklyn will generally have a no-fault claim with the driver’s insurance company. You can be compensated under a no-fault claim for medical expenses and lost wages up to the driver’s policy limits.
Underinsured motorist claim – If your medical expenses exceed the no-fault policy limits, you may be able to collect compensation through an underinsured motorist claim.
Bodily injury claims – If your injuries are considered ‘serious’ under New York law, you may have a bodily injury claim against the at-fault party for your accident. In addition to medical expenses, lost wages, and other out of pocket expenses, you are also permitted to recover compensation for pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages.
