Brooklyn Car Accident
Brooklyn Car Accident AttorneyWhat should you do when you are involved in a Brooklyn car accident? The two most important things to do are to make sure the accident is timely reported to the police and to get immediate medical attention for any pain or injury you are experiencing.
In 2010, there were 79 fatal Brooklyn motor vehicle accidents.Reporting the accident to the police is significant for many reasons. One of the most important reasons is that it affords you an opportunity to give your side of the accident, which is contemporaneous to the accident and documented by the authorities.
Many times auto accident victims refuse medical treatment at the scene of the accident believing they will feel better the next day. Their adrenaline is up and they do not realize the extent of the injuries they sustained. By the next day, instead of felling better, they are feeling worse, experiencing pain and stiffness. They start to wonder what they should do now. They question whether they should wait a few more days and maybe it will go away. Generally, it is best not to guess at something as significant as your health and well-being. Even if you refused emergency treatment at the scene of the accident, seek immediate medical attention for any continued pain.
Alcohol-impaired driving was a contributing factor in 18 fatalities, while speeding was a factor in 14 fatal accidents.After these, the next most important thing to do is to speak to an experienced New York City auto accident lawyer. After the accident, insurance companies will be contacting you to give a statement or to ask you to fill out and submit certain forms. These insurance companies are not on your side and you are not in good hands when you entrust your claim to them. Their job, ultimately, is to deny your claim for personal injury compensation and to cut off your no-fault benefits for medical expenses and lost wages as soon as possible. You need a personal injury attorney on your side to protect your interests and to assert your claim.
