Brooklyn Car Accident Lawyer

Do Not Pay The Price For Another’s Negligence

Millions of car accidents happen in the United States every year. Many of these collisions injure, and even kill, the drivers and passengers of vehicles involved. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in an auto accident, you may have the right to file a compensation claim.

If you have been injured in a car accident in Brooklyn due to another person’s negligence, you need a car accident attorney. Please call the Belushin Law Firm immediately to learn about your rights to compensation for your injuries and losses.

Types of Injuries From Getting Hit By a Car

In an auto accident, there are many ways in which a person can be injured. Some injuries are due to impact when the body strikes parts of the vehicle. But other serious injuries are caused by the motion of a body inside a vehicle. When two or more vehicles collide, the rapid movement of the body can cause severe muscular injury and severe brain injury.

Common types of car accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash 
  • Head injuries 
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Broken bones 
  • Knee trauma 
  • Burns 
  • Scars and disfigurement 
  • Internal bleeding 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 

Because of the complex nature of injuries in auto accidents, car accident victims need an auto accident attorney who can argue with the insurance company to get a settlement to compensate the victim for all of their injuries.

Car Accident Passenger Claim

Passengers in a car accident also have the right to make a claim for their injuries. A passenger can either be a person in a car that is struck by a negligent driver, or the passenger can be in a vehicle with a driver who operated their car in a negligent manner. Either way, the passenger has the right to be compensated for their injuries.

Steps to Take After a Car Accident

The first step to take after an accident is to contact authorities. You should call the police and also call for an ambulance if there are any serious injuries. Calling the police to the scene of your accident will ensure that an investigation takes place into the cause of the accident and the involved parties. This information will be crucial to your case in the future and will help the attorneys argue your claim.

If you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident or you were a passenger in a single-car crash, it is still important to make sure that the police respond to the accident and investigate the incident. After the authorities have been contacted, the next, and most important, step is to seek medical treatment if you are injured.

It is important that you document the following about your accident:

  • Time of the accident
  • Angle of your vehicles
  • Damage to each vehicle
  • Road and weather conditions
  • Location of the vehicles involved
  • Information of responsible driver
  • Contact info of any witnesses
  • Record of any doctor visits

The best thing you can do to maximize your settlement for your car accident is to call one of our auto accident lawyers at Belushin Law Firm. Hiring an attorney to represent you in your lawsuit will ensure that your affairs are taken care of in a professional and diligent manner. Once you hire an attorney, the insurance company will be required to correspond with the attorney. The confusing paperwork, medical records, medical billing issues, and conversations with the insurance company will all be handled through us.

Common Types of Car Accidents

There are many different types of car accidents that can seriously injure the occupants of the cars involved. One of the most common car accidents in New York is a rear-end collision. Every driver has the responsibility to maintain control of their vehicle at all times. Rear-end collisions can cause serious back and neck injuries, even at low speeds because the direction and force of the impact can cause trauma to the spinal area.

Head-on collisions are often caused when a driver leaves their lane of travel and enters oncoming traffic. Because of the combined velocity of the vehicles, head-on collisions are dangerous and deadly because they cause serious trauma to the occupants. A Brooklyn car accident lawyer can assist you if you have experienced any of these types of accidents, and they will make the insurance company understand the value of the pain and suffering you endured.

Another common type of accident is a sideswipe accident. This happens when a car veers outside its lane of travel and scrapes the side of another car. While this type of accident does not seem very dangerous, the impact of another car can send the victim car spiraling out of control. This can cause serious injury and even death to the occupants of the sideswiped car.

Whether you call them pileups or chain reactions, multi-vehicle accidents can occur just as easily as any other car accident—in the blink of an eye. The difference is, however, is that these accidents lead to much more devastating damage and injury than many other types. At Belushin Law Firm, P.C., our Brooklyn car accident attorneys know that a situation as complex as this needs trusting, patient, and diligent counsel.

Rear-end, head-on, and sideswipe accidents are only a few of the types of accidents that the lawyers at Belushin Law Firm have handled for their clients. They can also assist victims who were passengers in single-car crashes, victims of rollover accidents, and many more.

Each of these categories has nuanced rules of law that the experienced attorneys at Belushin Law Firm can navigate for you. If you have been injured in any of these ways, you should speak with a Brooklyn auto accident lawyer who can help you determine your legal rights to a settlement for your personal injuries.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents

Determining the cause of a car accident is key to proving who is responsible for the crash and recovering full compensation. Determining fault can be difficult because, with so many drivers and others involved, it may turn into a game of “he said, she said.” A seasoned Brooklyn auto accident lawyer, however, can read between the lines and draw out only the facts.

Some of the common causes of multi-vehicle accidents include:
