Car Accident Lawsuit Brooklyn, NY
Many people in Brooklyn are surprised when their insurance companies do not fully compensate them after car accidents. A company may deny a claim entirely or offer to pay only a small percentage of the claim. This can be very frustrating, especially for people who have never had to submit injury claims. Many individuals feel that they are alone in fighting the large corporation that is an insurance company. They may feel that the insurer blames them for the accident. Even when it is not true, that is what insurance companies want people to believe.
