Brooklyn, also known as Kings County, is a borough of New York City. The most-populated borough in New York City, Brooklyn/Kings County is the most-populous county in New York State and the second-most densely populated county in the U.S. Brooklyn was founded in 1646 as Breuckelen in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam; it was named for the village of Breukelen in the Netherlands. Brooklyn was an independent village and city for its entire history until 1898, when it was consolidated with the other four boroughs to form New York City. Traditionally, Brooklyn’s character has been that of a collection of neighborhoods that served as various ethnic enclaves. However, in recent years Brooklyn has been redeveloping as a more avant-garde community, with the local economy also shifting its focus towards technology firms, art and design, and entrepreneurship.
After you’ve been involved in a car accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company with an offer of compensation if you are willing to settle your claim. Although the insurance company’s offer can seem fair and compelling, especially if you need cash now to cover medical expenses or lost income from missed work, you should not accept any settlement without first speaking with an experienced car accident attorney. An attorney can review the details of your case and advise you as to whether the insurance company’s settlement offer represents fair and full compensation of your damages. An attorney can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf; in many cases, having an attorney representing you in your car accident claim can lead to receiving more compensation than if you tried to deal with the insurance company on your own.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it is important to remember that most personal injury attorneys offer contingency fee arrangements to victims of car accidents. In a contingency fee arrangement, the attorney does not get paid unless and until the injured party receives compensation in a settlement or at trial; the attorney is typically paid an agreed-upon percentage of the total compensation the client receives. The attorney will also typically front the costs of the car accident claim, such as hiring expert witnesses, arranging for medical examinations, and filing a complaint in court, and may be reimbursed for these costs or may roll the costs into his or her legal fee.
