    Why Should You Hire A Lawyer?

    When someone suffers an injury in an accident at work, home, or another location, it is usually overwhelming and traumatic. They do not know where or how to apply for compensation or benefits, or if they are even eligible for benefits. In fact, they often feel they have no options. Stress and fear of the unknown leave the person unsure of how to grapple with their medical bills and lost wages, not to mention filing a claim for compensation.

    A Brooklyn disability and injury attorney will handle all the legalities while you focus on healing. Whether you’re struggling with filing an application or you were denied Social Security Disability benefits or your police officer pension, our attorneys can fight on your behalf to get your claim submitted and approved.

    Negligence and Accidents

    There are many rules in place to keep people safe on the roads, but sometimes other people’s negligence results in damages, injuries, and even fatalities.
