Large trucks are still the primary way that all types of products move around Brooklyn and the United States in general. We depend on trucks for everything from the smartphones in our pockets to the bagels at our corner deli.
You may think that trucks are simply large motor vehicles with a wider turning radius. Think again. They are far more difficult to navigate on the tight streets and congested thruways in Brooklyn. Trucks have several blind spots, long braking distances, and limited maneuverability.
Fortunately, the number of truck accidents in Brooklyn has been going down since a record high of 944 truck accidents in 2015. However, that does not mean that a truck accident is not catastrophic when it occurs. If you have been involved in a truck accident, we at Siler & Ingber know how to deal with such a case.
We have handed countless truck accidents in Brooklyn, and we understand the particular aspects of a truck accident that other general practice attorneys may not understand. Contact us to get a free case review of your truck accident case with our truck accident specialists. With a proven track record of success helping truck accident victims, we at Siler & Ingber can help to make you whole again.
Brooklyn seems to be forever expanding and upgrading, which means lots of construction zones in the borough. The reason that penalties for speeding and moving violations are increased in construction areas is because construction zones are very dangerous places. The mix of fast moving cars with narrow lanes, heavy equipment, and construction workers can spell trouble. Moreover, simply working in a construction zone is a risky proposition. Sometimes even the most stringent precautions cannot cover every eventuality.
Accordingly, if you have been injured in a construction accident – either as a worker, pedestrian, or motorist – you need to retain the services of a highly skilled Brooklyn personal injury attorney. With a talented Brooklyn personal injury lawyer in your corner, you can maximize your chances in getting all the compensation you deserve.
The construction accident attorneys at Siler & Ingber know that construction accident victims need more than aggressive advocacy in court. We pride ourselves on establishing and maintaining strong relationships with each of our clients to make sure that they have the compassion and personal attention they need. Call us at 1-516-294-2666 and see the client-centered approach we take at Siler & Ingber.
Even with the current Mayor’s “Vision Zero” initiative, pedestrians are still at the most risk when it comes to motor vehicle accidents. Unlike any vehicle on the New York City streets, pedestrians have no protection from injury if there is a car, truck, or even bicycle crash.
In fact, in every single year since 2012, Brooklyn has had the highest number of pedestrian injuries of all five boroughs. With peaks in 2013 and 2014 (3,641 and 3,348 pedestrian injuries, respectively), the number of pedestrian injuries in Brooklyn last year was 2,734. That is a high number of injuries, indicating just how dangerous it can be to walk around Brooklyn.
If you have been injured in an accident as a pedestrian, your choice of who will represent you in court could mean the difference between nominal or no recovery, and a compensation package that will take care of all of your medical bills and other damages. We invite you to take advantage of a free consultation at Siler & Ingber. We care about our clients, and work diligently to ensure that they receive the best outcome in their case. Pedestrian accidents can be tricky to investigate. Our legal professionals have the right kind of experience to make sure that no stone is unturned when working on your case. Call today.
As with most other accident statistics in NYC, Brooklyn tops all five boroughs when it comes to bicycle accidents. In fact, in all of the years since 2012, Brooklyn had the most cyclists injured in accidents year after year, with 1,445 injured in 2016 and 1,315 injured in 2017.
What is particularly interesting with bicycle accidents is that there has been a massive uptick in accidents in 2016 and 2017. In Brooklyn specifically, there were 56 accidents and 78 accidents in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Yet, in 2016 and 2017, there were 793 and 429 accidents. The huge increase in accidents is likely due to the commensurate increase in bike use throughout the City.
Now, more than ever, you will need an experienced bicycle accident attorney to help you if you are injured in a bike crash. Call the experts at Siler & Ingber. Speak with one of our Brooklyn bicycle accident attorneys today by calling 1-516-294-2666.
