How common are vehicular accidents in Brooklyn? In December 2021 alone, there were 2,776 car accidents reported on our streets. That represents only one month.
Nationwide, car accidents are the number one cause of injuries and fatalities. The National Safety Council reports that motor vehicle accidents remain the leading cause of death in the United States, with 39,107 individuals losing their lives in a vehicular accident in 2019. The estimated injuries for that one year alone? An astonishing 4.5 million people suffered injuries requiring medical care in car accidents in 2019.
While these figures are staggering, the sheer amount of physical, emotional, and financial costs are often overwhelming for those who are left to recover and get on with their lives. While insurance may cover some of the costs, injured parties often have to fight to get fairly compensated for their injuries. When benefits run out, many are forced to pay the difference out of their own pockets. Fortunately, in some cases, victims of vehicular accidents can hold the at-fault party accountable, but this requires bringing a personal injury lawsuit against them.
If you have been injured in a Brooklyn car accident, you owe it to yourself to understand what your legal rights and options are. While our no-fault insurance laws are designed to offer immediate benefits for those who are injured and need help fast, in many cases, getting those benefits can be a struggle. The insurance industry often works at odds with the very policyholders they are tasked to protect. As for-profit entities, they frequently actively work to mitigate their financial exposure after an accident, leaving the victim to fight for fair benefits when they should be focused on healing.
Unfortunately, getting fairly compensated for vehicular accident injuries has become challenging, with the insurance company looking to limit benefits whenever possible. Consequently, without the assistance of a Brooklyn car accident lawyer in your corner holding the insurance company accountable, you may be at risk of accepting less than you are entitled to. This is when having our skilled team of attorneys at Kucher Law on your side can be a tremendous benefit. Call us today at (929) 274-8000 to schedule a consultation.
While the insurance company would prefer that you take their settlement without asking questions, we ask the questions and do the work necessary to ensure that your settlement is sufficient to cover your needs.

If that still doesn’t result in a fair settlement, we have no problem taking large insurance companies to court to ensure that our clients get the compensation they need to heal and move forward.
At Kucher Law, we have a strong team of legal advocates who will:

Of all the boroughs in New York City, Brooklyn sees the largest share of motor vehicle accidents. In 2020, most of these accidents were caused by:
While these are the most common causes of accidents in New York City, they are not the only factors.
It is important for car accident victims to understand their legal rights and what they may be entitled to in compensation. Before you agree to any insurance settlements that may limit your ability to hold the insurance company responsible for the entirety of those benefits, it is crucial to get the guidance of an experienced Brooklyn car accident lawyer. At Kucher Law, we can help ensure that your financial recovery is the one you deserve.
In New York, we have no-fault insurance laws which were designed to make it easy for accident victims to get needed benefits for their injuries and damages without having to take the time and effort to prove fault and get compensated from the at-fault party. This was often a lengthy and involved process. With no-fault insurance, you are responsible for your injury benefits, with every registered car owner required to have a minimum coverage of:
In New York, you are eligible to receive these benefits regardless of who is at fault for the accident when:
While, in theory, no-fault laws should make claims easier to navigate, there are ways that no-fault has created problems for car accident victims who need benefits. While some car accident injury victims get the benefits they need after an accident, $25,000 doesn’t go very far. This leaves individuals to go to their medical insurance or pay out of pocket for their costs and other damages that exceed their policy limits. It also becomes problematic when the insurance company questions the extent of those injuries and seeks to downgrade or deny an injury claim.
At Kucher Law Group, you have a team of attorneys who are ready to help you seek compensation for your injuries. Our team of lawyers may be able to help you understand and receive the benefits you deserve after being injured because of someone else’s fault. To schedule a consultation, contact us today at (929) 274-8000.
In addition, our laws have made it more challenging to hold at-fault drivers accountable for the harm they have caused. You may only collect compensation from an at-fault party if your injuries meet the state’s criteria of “severe injuries.” These include:
While some of these conditions are easily determined, some can lead to lengthy disputes. And some injuries, while not specifically addressed in this statute, may be considered severe depending on the effect it has on the injured party.
It can be difficult to determine and prove that injuries that were sustained in a vehicle accident meet the severe injury threshold, and the at-fault party’s insurance company will often try to prove otherwise. This is when it is critical to have the assistance of a Brooklyn car accident attorney representing your interests. At Kucher Law, our Brooklyn car accident attorneys diligently represent our clients to ensure that they get compensated by all possible parties after a serious injury.
Insurance benefits and compensation from a vehicular accident lawsuit can compensate you for your:
