Brooklyn Car Accident Attorneys are Powerful Advocates

Determined representation to maximize your injury compensation

Since 1981, The Licatesi Law Group has protected the rights of those injured in auto accidents. While you concentrate on regaining your health, we work diligently to investigate the crash, identify responsible parties and pursue full compensation for your losses, such as your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys have helped clients in Brooklyn and throughout the greater NYC area obtain settlements and court verdicts totaling more than $100 million. We are ready to put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

Experience with a wide variety of vehicle accidents

Driving on the congested and often poorly repaired thoroughfares of New York City presents multiple hazards. Our attorneys have handled virtually every traffic accident scenario, including:

  • Head-on and rear-end collisions
  • T-bone and side-impact accidents
  • Vehicles run off the road
  • Rollovers
  • Road obstruction collisions

Our firm conducts thorough investigations of auto accidents to determine the cause, which may include distracted driving, DUI/DWI, texting while driving, reckless driving or speeding. We also deal with the special circumstances of crashes resulting 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. We’ve assisted clients suffering a wide range of personal injuries, including:

  • 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.

What to do after a car accident

Being in a car accident is unsettling, and more so when you’re hurt. But the moments immediately after your accident are critical for your safety and may have bearing on your legal claim. This is why you must:

  • Call 911 for police or medical assistance.
  • Clear the area and use hazard lights or other warning devices to alert traffic.
  • Get contact information from other drivers and witnesses.
  • Survey the scene, taking photos of vehicle damage and road conditions.
  • Do not discuss the accident except with police.
  • Contact your insurance company.
  • Consult an experienced auto accident attorney.

Once we are retained as your counsel, our lawyers will aggressively pursue your claim to protect your rights. We understand how to build a successful auto accident case, how to negotiate a fair settlement and how to win a case at trial.
