Ten people were injured, five of which suffered severe or life-threatening injuries, in a seven-vehicle accident involving an MTA bus. The Brooklyn multiple-vehicle crash temporarily closed the road, said the police.
It all started after a minor accident, a Mercedes-Benz and a Ford SUV pulled off to the side of the road close to the 4th Avenue exit on the Prospect Expressway in Windsor Terrace. The crash took place shortly after 2 p.m. on Friday, February 26, the police said.
While the drivers of both cars were exchanging information, a third car, a grey Mercedes lost control and crashed into the back of the other Mercedes.
Four other vehicles were involved in the Brooklyn multiple-vehicle crash, including an MTA bus. The traffic was delayed as the highway was closed for the investigation.
A multiple-vehicle accident can be a real challenge, especially when the police have to determine the fault.
In such cases, it’s best to have a skilled car accident attorney to help you. Since New York is a no-fault state, and your claim is covered by your insurance, you’ll have to have a good attorney if you want to file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver (if we assume it wasn’t your fault). This is crucial for pain and suffering or non-economic damages. Your injuries should meet certain thresholds the state has set.
Of course, you can try to do this on your own, but it’s always better to get legal assistance from an experienced attorney.
If you want to file a lawsuit against the liable driver to cover all your medical bills, lost wages, trauma and pain and suffering, our team at Cellino Law is here for you. Our New York car accident attorneys will gladly help you get your much-deserved claim.

I can only say great things about my attorney Allan Silverstein. He is professional, he calls back right away, he keeps me informed, and makes me feel comfortable as this entire ordeal is stressful. I have total confidence in his ability to handle whatever comes his way. He is no nonsense and very good at his job. Thank you Allan... he is a true asset to the team!
Cellino Law is an amazing firm with a great team. I worked with Greg Pajak and his assistant, Tracey Falconer. I cannot express enough how dedicated they are. The personal attention I received was excellent; they were always available to help with questions and concerns and put me at ease in the unknown territory I found myself in. I highly recommend them to anyone needing representation. A huge thank you to them for all they accomplished for me!
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.
Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.
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.
I just want to let you know that I did receive my settlement check. More importantly, I want to thank you again for all you did for both me and my family. I could not be more pleased with my experience at Cellino Law. From the moment I first spoke with you I felt comfortable - you took a sincere interest in my case, clearly explained the process and effected a quick settlement. From this day forward, when someone asks if I can recommend a good lawyer I will, without hesitation, say "Cellino Law". Thanks again.
