Car Accidents in Brooklyn

A car accident is never an enjoyable experience. Even the most minor fender bender means stress, time spent in a repair shop, tow trucks, loaner cars, and wrangling with an insurance company. Further, a significant auto accident will be traumatic and even could have lasting physical and monetary effects in the long term.

Statistics show that among all five boroughs, Brooklyn has had the most car accidents every year for each of the last five years. Brooklyn also tops all five boroughs with regard to the number of motorists injured in accidents, as well as the number of people overall injured in NYC accidents over the last five years.

Those facts show that residents of Brooklyn, more than any other borough, need expert legal representation if they are involved in a car accident. We welcome you to consider us at Siler & Ingber if you are injured in a car crash in Brooklyn.

At Siler & Ingber, we have the resources to fully review and investigate your car accident, analyze the accident scene, consult with the necessary experts, and get you the best possible outcome in your case. We know that a car accident can be devastating, and we will work hard to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accident Lawyers

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.

Construction Accident Lawyers

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.

Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

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.

Bicycle Accident Attorneys

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.

The timeline for settling a personal injury case can vary significantly depending on various factors. Several factors can influence the duration of a personal injury case:

Extent of Injuries: Cases involving severe injuries may take longer to settle due to the need for comprehensive medical assessments and long-term prognosis evaluations.

Liability Disputes: If there is a dispute over who is at fault for the accident or injury, the resolution process may be prolonged as investigations and negotiations take place.

Insurance Company Response: The responsiveness of the involved insurance companies can impact the settlement timeline. Delays may occur if there are challenges or disagreements during negotiations.

Legal Proceedings: In some cases, legal action may be necessary, leading to the filing of a lawsuit. Litigation can extend the timeline, especially if court schedules and procedures come into play.

Complexity of the Case: Complicated cases, such as those involving multiple parties or intricate legal issues, may require more time for investigation, negotiation, and resolution.

Negotiation Dynamics: The negotiation process can be dynamic, and the time it takes to reach a fair settlement depends on the willingness of the parties involved to find common ground.

While some cases may be resolved relatively quickly through negotiation or settlement conferences, others may take months or even years, especially if they progress to trial.

During your free consultation, our experienced attorneys will provide a more personalized estimate of the potential timeline for your specific case. Rest assured, we are dedicated to expediting the process while ensuring the best possible outcome for your personal injury claim.

The compensation you may receive from a personal injury claim depends on various factors.

The types of compensation that may be sought in a personal injury claim include:

Medical Expenses: This covers the cost of current and future medical treatments, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and any other healthcare-related expenses resulting from the injury.

Lost Wages: If the injury caused you to miss work, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This includes not only the income you’ve already lost but also potential future earnings if the injury affects your ability to work.

Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional distress caused by the injury, including pain, anxiety, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Property Damage: If your personal property (e.g., vehicle) was damaged in the incident, you may be entitled to compensation for repairs or replacement.

Loss of Consortium: In cases where the injury has impacted your relationships, compensation may be sought for the loss of companionship, intimacy, or support.

Punitive Damages: In certain cases involving extreme negligence or intentional harm, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party and deter similar behavior in the future.

The specific amount of compensation varies based on the circumstances of each case. Factors such as the severity of injuries, impact on daily life, and the degree of negligence or fault play a significant role in determining the final compensation amount.

In Brooklyn, the timeframe within which you must file a personal injury claim is subject to the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations sets a legal deadline for initiating legal proceedings, and it varies depending on the type of personal injury case. Here are some general guidelines:

Personal Injury Claims: In most personal injury cases, including those arising from accidents, negligence, or intentional harm, the statute of limitations in New York is generally three years from the date of the injury.

Medical Malpractice Claims: For injuries resulting from medical malpractice, the statute of limitations is typically 2.5 years from the date of the alleged malpractice or from the end of continuous treatment provided by the party you intend to sue.

Wrongful Death Claims: If you are filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of death.

It is crucial to be aware of and adhere to these deadlines, as failing to file within the specified timeframe may result in the forfeiture of your right to pursue legal action. Therefore, we strongly recommend reaching out to Siler & Ingber promptly if you believe you have a personal injury case. Our experienced attorneys can provide you with guidance on the specific statute of limitations applicable to your situation.

In a personal injury case, gathering and preserving key pieces of evidence is essential to building a strong and compelling case. At Siler & Ingber, we prioritize the collection of crucial evidence to support our clients’ claims. Here are some types of evidence that are often crucial in a personal injury case:

Medical Records: Detailed medical records documenting the extent of your injuries, the treatments received, and prognosis are fundamental. These records provide tangible evidence of the harm you suffered and the medical expenses incurred.

Photographs and Videos: Visual evidence, such as photos or videos of the accident scene, injuries, property damage, and any contributing factors, can significantly strengthen your case.

Witness Statements: Statements from eyewitnesses who saw the accident or its aftermath can provide unbiased accounts that corroborate your version of events.

Police Reports: Official reports filed by law enforcement officers at the scene of the accident can be valuable in establishing key details and determining liability.

Accident Reconstruction: In complex cases, accident reconstruction experts may be employed to recreate the sequence of events, helping to establish the cause of the accident and liability.

Expert Testimony: Testimony from medical experts, vocational rehabilitation specialists, or other experts can provide professional opinions regarding the impact of the injuries on your life and potential future consequences.

Employment Records: If the injury affects your ability to work, employment records, salary information, and expert opinions may be crucial in establishing lost earning capacity.

Insurance Correspondence: Copies of communications with insurance companies, including claim forms, correspondence, and settlement offers, can be important for documenting the progression of your case.

Incident Reports: If the injury occurred on someone else’s property, obtaining incident reports, maintenance logs, and surveillance footage (if available) can be critical in premises liability cases.

Preservation of Evidence: Taking steps to preserve evidence, such as keeping damaged property, preserving clothing worn during the incident, or securing accident-related documents, is crucial to maintaining the integrity of the case.
