Personal injury lawyers in Brooklyn handle many types of cases. However, not all personal injury lawyers are the same. You do not want to retain a personal injury lawyer who does not handle dog bites when you suffer a dog bite. Each Brooklyn personal injury lawyer has his or her specialties. While the basis of personal injury – negligence – is the same, each area of law has specific issues and laws that an attorney without experience could miss.

Why Choose a Brooklyn Personal Injury Attorney at Kaplan Lawyers, PC

Our personal injury attorneys have decades of experience handling several types of personal injury cases, including vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, burn injuries, nursing home abuse, slip and fall accidents, wrongful death cases, and social security disability matters.

Not only do our attorneys have decades of experience, but our extensive support staff also have years of experience under their belts. After suffering injuries in an accident, you need Brooklyn personal injury lawyers with the support staff to ensure your case gets all the attention it should. You are not just a case number to us – we care about you and want to contribute to your recovery as much as possible, which means that we aggressively pursue your case, whether during settlement negotiations or litigation, to recover the compensation you deserve.

Why Retain a Brooklyn Personal Injury Attorney

Some people believe that they can settle their cases for more without involving an attorney. However, that is usually far from the truth. Insurance companies are in business to make money. Every claim they pay out decreases their profits. Thus, they will try anything to deny a case. If they cannot deny a case, they will try to pay the least amount possible to make you “go away.”

Personal injury lawyers in Brooklyn know the tricks insurance companies play and will negotiate for the compensation you deserve. If we cannot get a fair and reasonable settlement, we do not hesitate to take your case to court to fight for your rights and the compensation you deserve.

How Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

Once you retain us, we immediately start working on your case. Regardless of what type of case you have, whether a car accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident, motorcycle accident, dog bite, wrongful death, workplace accident, premises liability accident (slip and fall or another injury on someone else’s property) or construction accident, we start investigating your case immediately.

We contact professionals, including accident reconstructionists and medical experts, to help us determine the level of negligence and if your injuries will become long-term or permanent disabilities. Once we have all the information we need, we start settlement negotiations with the insurance company to recover the compensation you deserve.  Here are a few of the ways in which we serve clients:

Vehicle Accidents in Brooklyn

Car crashes happen for any number of reasons, most of which are due to human error. This includes drunk, distracted or reckless driving practices. Certain areas of Brooklyn tend to have higher rates of vehicle crashes than others. For example, the area around Barclays Center, particularly at the intersections of Atlantic Avenue & 4th Avenue and Flatbush & Atlantic avenues, are notorious for having a high number of vehicle crashes. A driver’s mistakes can have terrible consequences for a victim, including debilitating injuries, medical bills and lost income.
