Comprehensive Legal Guidance, Across New York

Making Brooklyn safer for pedestrians

On Behalf of | Jul 6, 2020 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

You never really know what could be in store when you step out onto the sidewalk in this city. We believe that kind of experience should trigger excitement and hope — not fear.

Unfortunately, fear is exactly what reckless and negligent drivers engender when they injure pedestrians. We are prepared to tenaciously pursue maximum compensation for those who receive injuries in this manner.

Extensive injuries

Traffic in NYC does not exactly have a reputation for speed. However, a vehicle does not need to travel quickly to cause catastrophic injuries. The physics involved when thousands of pounds of metal collide with unprotected pedestrians often lead to tragic results, up to and including the premature death of the person in question.

Recovering from extensive injuries such as these often requires years of therapy or expensive surgeries — if recovery is possible at all. Insurance companies, although common sense would dictate that they know the cost, are almost uniformly reluctant to pay injured people what they deserve.

Fair compensation

At such a time that you rejected an unfair offer by an insurer, the company would probably pursue other means of diminishing your claim. Legal teams might question your responsibility for the incident. Adjusters might attempt to delay you. There is a multitude of underhanded or duplicitous tactics you might encounter.

Seeking fair compensation with this type of opposition is unlikely to be a simple process. You would probably benefit from knowledge of the legal system, insight into insurance company negotiating tactics, evidence from the event that led to your injury and professional analysis of your injury itself.

We understand that this could be daunting, especially if you were incapacitated in some way. This is why we guide our clients through every stage of the process, with the ultimate goal of securing the maximum compensation possible for the circumstances. By showing negligent drivers we mean business, we believe we are making our city a safer place for everyone.
