Car accidents in Brooklyn involving serious injuries occur at a staggering rate in the USA, and Brooklyn is no exception.

Who is Liable?

A critical issue in filing a successful car accident claim or lawsuit in Brooklyn involves identifying the liable party or parties. This process may require a full investigation by a professional car accident investigator to establish and prove that another driver operated a vehicle in a negligent or reckless manner and caused the accident. At The Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel, LLC, we have all the resources needed to proceed with a professionally-prepared claim or lawsuit, fully documented and supported by facts and evidence.

New York is what is termed a “no-fault” state. This means for less serious injuries, your own insurance provider will cover the cost of treating injuries through a PIP (personal injury protection) claim. To seek compensation from a negligent driver’s insurance coverage, your medical bills must exceed a certain level, and the collision led to any of the following:

  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Broken bones (fractures)
  • Substantial level of full disability, affecting you for at least 90 days
  • Permanent physical damage leading to physical limitations
