Flatbush Car Accident Lawyer
Car accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. Perhaps you were on your way to or from work, or just out running a few errands. What began as a routine trip became a nightmare due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another party. Now, as you start the long, slow recovery process, you do not know how you will pay your mounting medical bills, as well as your basic living costs, as you could remain out of work for a long time. Although the situation may seem bleak, do not despair, because compassionate help is available.
A Flatbush personal injury lawyer at Douglas and London can help you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. Our dedicated lawyers have recovered $4 billion for their clients: That’s a track record you can count on.
Car accident injuries
A serious car accident injury puts your life on hold at least temporarily and may result in permanent disability. Life-altering car accident injuries may include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries, causing paralysis
- Traumatic brain injury
- Loss of limbs
- Loss of vision
- Internal organ damage
A personal injury attorney at our firm will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. Insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible in claims. The injured party may receive what sounds like a reasonable settlement offer, but the attorney knows the amount is not sufficient for the client’s prognosis and long-term care needs.
Insurance companies know they cannot take advantage of an injured person with the services of a top law firm behind them. In the majority of cases, a fair settlement amount is eventually agreed upon, but if the insurance company fails to offer a suitable settlement amount, we will not hesitate to take the case to trial to get you the damages you deserve.
Do not wait to obtain legal help
In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is three years from the date of the accident. Unfortunately, the relatively long time period in which you are permitted to file such a lawsuit can give plaintiffs a false sense of security. Car accidents require a thorough investigation, and that means obtaining legal assistance as soon as possible. If your accident involves any type of government vehicle, immediate legal assistance is a necessity, since the statute of limitations for filing claims against government agencies is a mere 90 days from the accident date.
A car accident lawyer can determine which parties are liable for the crash, and the investigation will sometimes go beyond the culpability of the other driver. Depending upon the circumstances, other entities may be liable for the accident. For example, if the collision occurred because the other driver’s tire blew out, and he lost control of the vehicle, it is possible that the tire manufacturer is at fault.
