Sunset Park Personal Injury Attorney
The neighborhood of Sunset Park was formed in Brooklyn, NY in the mid 1800's. Today, this neighborhood is quickly expanding with new high rise apartment houses, restaurants, bars, shops, bars, schools, recreational facilities and parks. Sunset Park is a neighborhood of great ethnic diversity populated with people from all over the world. Not only has the population dramatically increased, but as the number of cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians on the road has increased, there have been more accidents than ever before.
The main business district is located at Fourth Ave and Fifth Ave. In this area, you will frequently see cars double parked, running stop signs and red lights, and drivers distracted on their cell phones. All these infractions contribute to the numerous accidents involving motor vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles every week. Fourth Ave. is particularly dangerous, as it is a major roadway connecting many parts of Brooklyn and due to the great volume of traffic, accidents are a regular occurrence.
