New York Accident Attorney

At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we represent victims who are injured or killed in accidents involving a car, bus, motorcycle, bicycle, moped or other form of motor vehicle or transportation.
We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 5.5 million car crashes occurred in the US in 2009, 28% (1.5 million) of which caused at least minor injuries to those involved, and drivers suffered 66% of the injuries.  Less than 1% (30,797) of the accidents were fatal, and 38% of these involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Factors That Contribute to Transportation Accidents

Transportation Accident AttorneyAlcohol is only one of the many factors that contribute to transportation accidents.  Below we have provided several other examples:

  • Distraction – Drivers who are changing the radio station, using their cell phones, talking to a passenger, eating, disciplining children or pets, or grooming in the rearview mirror, are all more likely to get into a car accident than those who keep their attention on the road.
  • Impairment – This can include tiredness, illness, prescription or illicit drugs, and of course, alcohol.
  • Mechanical failure – If the car malfunctions or the engine dies, or if the tires blow out, these all constitute a mechanical failure that could cause an accident.
  • Road conditions – Bad weather or obstacles in the road, including debris, snow and ice, can all make driving dangerous. Large Potholes or defective roadways can also cause accidents.
  • Excessive speed – Speed limits are the maximum speed at which it is safe for a car to drive on that particular stretch of road.  They are set at their levels for a reason, and drivers who ignore these rules put themselves and others at risk.
  • Road design and layout – Some roads are not designed very well and have poor visibility, road markings and surface conditions.

Regardless of the cause, most transportation accidents are foreseeable and preventable, which makes the devastating physical and emotional effects on the victims and their families even worse.  Many do not have the means to pay for the resultant medical bills, so our firm does everything it can think of to get you the compensation that you deserve.  We will fight the insurance companies and take a case as far as is beneficial for you.

We won $2,000,000 for a child who broke his leg while on a motor scooter and $600,000 for the family of a man who was struck and killed when he rode his bike through a red light into a busy intersection.  In the latter case, the man was found with marijuana in his system and we had three witnesses testify against us, but we fought until we recovered damages for his family. Click here to see more verdicts and settlements.

When my daughter was burned in an accident, my husband and I looked for a good lawyer who specialized in burn cases. My husband found Mr. Kenneth A. Wilhelm, and we called him and met with him. He told us he would do whatever he could for our daughter, and he did! We were very pleased with the work Mr. Wilhelm did for our daughter, and we are glad we chose such an excellent lawyer. We would choose his services again if we had to, and I would recommend his services to my family, friends, or anyone who has need of a lawyer. My daughter is doing well because of him.read more

My son was born prematurely, and I trusted the doctors and hospital to get him through the first few weeks and out of danger. The doctors made some mistakes in their procedures and my son is now injured for life because of their mistakes. I didn't know what to do. I hired Ken Wilhelm's law office because I heard from someone that Ken Wilhelm is the best. He and his attorneys held the hospital responsible for their errors. We received a very large settlement. It doesn't fix my son's suffering but I feel that my attorneys helped me get what my family deserved for our hardship.read more
