Man Injured in Two-Vehicle Crash in Brooklyn
Calendar icon December 27, 2020

A man was severely injured when his vehicle overturned onto a sidewalk after a two-vehicle crash in Brooklyn. The accident happened on East 105th Street and Avenue L. 

According to the officials, the victim was driving a Subaru Forester and was going eastbound on Avenue L when his car was hit by a Mercedes Benz operated by a seventeen-year-old going north on 105th Street. The crash forced the Subaru to flip over onto the sidewalk. 

Firefighters had to rescue the sixty-five-year-old driver from the overturned vehicle. The man was taken to Brookdale University Hospital in critical condition.

The seventeen-year-old driver didn’t have any injuries and stayed at the scene. The police continue to investigate the two-vehicle crash in Brooklyn.

Car accident injuries can change a victim’s life completely. Suddenly there is nothing but medical treatments, high medical bills, lost wages, lost quality of life, stress, and suffering.

Severe injuries can be harsh no matter how old the victim is. However, after the initial medical help, the victim should seek legal help. 

Filing for a lawsuit against the liable party is the first step to seek a compensation claim for your damages.

Some injuries require operations, lengthy treatments, and even after the treatment, the victim may still have problems with normal functioning. Let’s not forget that some injuries may require the victim to quit their job (because of inability to work as they used to). 

The pain and suffering, as well as trauma after the accident, are other factors that can ruin the person’s quality of life.

This should be covered by a suitable compensation claim. Once you file the claim, the insurance company may offer a low amount, but your New York car accident lawyer will negotiate until they offer a reasonable sum.

  • Cellino Law was a great company to work with. From the beginning they came out and met with my uncle and myself and assured us that everything would be taken care of from beginning to end our lawyer state and constant contact with us to make sure that everything would go smoothly and it did. I would definitely recommend anybody to go to Cellino Law for whatever help they need. And specifically please ask for the lawyer that we had Mr. Alan Silverstein. He was amazing and his staff was always attentive. Please go with them for your next law needs.

  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.
