Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer for Help When You Need It Most

Suffering injuries includes physical pain but typically also comes with emotional trauma and financial loss, sometimes severe enough to bankrupt a household. Victims of negligence should not have to financially suffer because of another party’s actions. A Brooklyn personal injury attorney at The O’Connor Law Firm is dedicated to helping victims who have suffered serious injuries due to the carelessness and recklessness of others.

We are always available to answer your Brooklyn personal injury questions. We also offer free case evaluations. Call us today at 718-948-3500 or fill out our form below and let us guide you through the legal process.

How Can a Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

It’s always in the best interest of victims of negligence to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer after suffering injuries. Some ways a Brooklyn injury attorney can help include:

  • Evaluation. An experienced attorney can review the facts of your case, determine your eligibility for compensation, and advise you on your legal options to recover compensation for your injuries.
  • Investigation. An attorney can investigate your case to uncover relevant information to support your claim, making it difficult for the insurance company or defense legal team to argue against your claim.
  • Communication. Personal injury lawyers handle communications with insurance companies and other relevant parties to protect their clients from saying something that could negatively impact the value of their personal injury claim.
  • Negotiation. Accident and injury attorneys are trained negotiators who know how to deal with insurance companies and legal defense teams. Hiring legal counsel often results in more compensation for accident victims than they could get on their own.
  • Litigation. Sometimes settlement negotiations fail or are not an option. A lawyer can fight for you in the courtroom when necessary.

Brooklyn Personal Injury FAQs

If you have recently suffered injuries due to another party’s carelessness, you might be unsure about your next steps. Until you have a chance to consult with an attorney, the answers to these frequently asked questions about personal injury claims in Brooklyn provide some beginning information. You can also find valuable information in our Free Books or our video library.

How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

Your attorney must place a monetary value on your claim that includes economic losses and non-economic losses, which are more difficult to quantify. While it may be difficult to predict an exact amount, your attorney can provide you with a potential range of compensation you might receive if you prevail in your claim.

What is the Statute of Limitation on Brooklyn Personal Injury Cases?

Although some exceptions exist, most victims of negligence have three years from the date of injury to bring a lawsuit against the party who caused their injuries. In some situations involving public entities, a claim must be filed as soon as 90 days from the date of injury. Families who are filing a wrongful death lawsuit must do so within two years after losing their loved one.

How Long Will it Take to Settle My Claim?

Each case is different. The length of time it takes to settle your claim depends on a number of factors, including the extent of your injuries. You might settle your claim within a few months if your injuries are minor and have resolved and you no longer need additional medical care.

If your injuries are more severe and you require extensive medical care, including surgery, rehabilitation and ongoing future medical treatment, your case may take longer. It is important to reach your maximum medical improvement which is when your lawyer knows to full extent of your injuries and whether you will require future medical care.

Why Choose a Brooklyn Injury Lawyer from The O’Connor Law Firm?

Some accident victims may wonder whether they even need to hire a personal injury lawyer to handle their Brooklyn injury claim. While minor injuries that resolve soon after an accident may not need a lawyer, more serious injuries that require extended medical care and/or surgery require the help of an experienced injury lawyer to help you recover maximum compensation.

The honest and compassionate legal team at The O’Connor Law Firm focuses solely on personal injury cases. We make the process easy for you and take on the burden of dealing with the insurance company.

The firm’s commitment to client education, client advocacy, and getting results will give you peace of mind. We carefully select cases to provide the best representation for our clients, who do not pay attorney fees unless we win their case.

Recovering Damages in a Brooklyn Personal Injury Claim

If you take legal action against the party who caused your injuries, you could receive compensation for various economic and non-economic damages. They include:

  • Medical treatment costs including ambulance service, emergency room treatment, surgery, hospitalization, diagnostic imaging, lab testing, doctor visits, aftercare, and prescriptions
  • Estimated future medical treatment costs when victims of negligence suffer permanent conditions or injuries that require ongoing care and treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity when injuries prevent a victim from working
