Our NY car accident lawyers have had experience working on countless automobile accident cases. In a recent car accident case in New York City handled by our firm, a woman crossing the street was struck by a car making a left turn. By utilizing the expertise of trained accident reconstruction experts, we were able to determine that our client was clearly in the crosswalk and should have been seen by the turning car before being hit.
In another case in New York, through the use of trained automobile accident experts, we were able to show a jury that the vehicle that struck our client’s car was driving too fast and exceeding the posted speed limits.
How to Prove Traumatic Brain Injuries or Other Trauma in a Car Accident
Traumatic brain injuries can often happen as a result of a car accident. While safer cars have reduced the rate and severity of personal injuries in car crashes, many car accidents — even minor fender benders — still cause significant and permanent injuries to the car’s occupants. The amount of damage to the car does not always translate into the amount of damage to the driver or passengers.
Predicting the severity of your car accident injury cannot be done simply by looking at a photo of the car crash.
