Traffic hazards are plentiful throughout Brooklyn
Did you know that Brooklyn is home to the most active crash site in all of New York State? In a five-year period beginning in 2012, the intersection of Tillary Street and Flatbush Avenue has seen 425 collisions. Traffic watchers attribute the high frequency of crashes to constant traffic converging from the Manhattan Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Other danger spots include Atlantic Avenue (at Pennsylvania Avenue, Conduit Boulevard, Flatbush Avenue and Eastern Parkway), Eastern Parkway (at Utica Avenue and at Erskine Street) and Bushwick Avenue at the Jackie Robinson Parkway. Located close to Flatbush Avenue, we’ve had ample opportunity to observe the dangers and the carnage up close. Although NYC’s Vision Zero initiative has targeted many of the most dangerous Brooklyn intersections for redesigns to enhance safety, progress has been slow, leaving motorists and pedestrians at risk.
Common causes of traffic accidents in Brooklyn
Driving on the congested streets of Brooklyn is challenging, especially with the pressure to keep up the pace in the city that never sleeps. Crowds of pedestrians and bicyclists are easy targets for anxious drivers who aren’t paying proper attention.
In Brooklyn the most common causes of auto accidents include:
- Cellphone use, texting and other distractions
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Fatigued driving
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Ignoring a red light or stop sign
- Aggressive and reckless driving
Our firm conducts thorough investigations of auto accidents to determine the cause and to identify the responsible parties. We then take aggressive steps to hold them accountable. Our cases include a wide variety of accident scenarios involving passenger cars, commercial trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. We are also knowledgeable of the special legal circumstances that arise when the crash resulted from negligent operation of a public transit bus or an Uber or Lyft rideshare.
Common injuries from Brooklyn motor vehicle accidents
In our personal injury practice, we have handled motor vehicle accident claims on behalf of drivers, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists. Many of our clients have sustained severe, debilitating and disabling injuries that include:
- Broken and crushed bones
- Concussions and traumatic brain injury
- Spinal trauma and paralysis
- Torn ligaments and displaced discs
- Internal organ damage
- Scarring and disfigurement
We also manage wrongful death claims for surviving relatives of fatally injured parties. Our goal is always to recover the maximum amount of compensation possible under the specific facts of the case. To do this, we consult medical experts and experts in finance who can testify credibly to the extent of your injuries and the toll those losses are likely to have over the course of your life. We negotiate skillfully to resolve your case in a timely manner, but if the other side refuses to be reasonable, we are prepared to fight in court to deliver justice.
