If you are injured in a crash, having an advocate on your side who can explain the various laws regarding fault in our state and help you navigate the system of recovering compensation can be extremely helpful. Working with an attorney can even increase the amount of money that you receive from the insurance company.
Our lawyers are ready to help you by:
In a car accident claim that involves serious injuries, a claimant has the right to seek compensation for the full extent of damages that they have suffered. This includes compensation for the value of:
It can be difficult to think about filing legal action in the days and weeks following a car accident, especially if you have been seriously injured. However, we strongly recommend calling our Medford car crash lawyers as soon as possible.
Our attorneys can get the ball rolling on your case while you focus on your recovery. This is important for multiple reasons, including the fact that the longer you wait to take action, the greater the chance that evidence relevant to your claim will be lost or destroyed, the longer you will have to wait to receive your settlement offer and the closer that you become to breaching the state’s statute of limitations.
In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the accident. If you don’t bring your claim before the three-year deadline, you will be unable to seek damages at all in the future.
If you’ve been in a car accident, knowing the proper steps to take to preserve your right to recovery is important. Things that you need to do following a car accident include:
The most important thing that you should know about dealing with insurance companies is that an insurance adjuster assigned to your claim is not focused on getting you the maximum recovery award. They are focused on finding ways to devalue your claim in order to save the insurance company money.
Anything you say could be used against you. The insurance adjuster may travel to your home or place of work (or hire a detective to do so) to gather evidence in an attempt to disprove the extent of injuries you’ve suffered, and will likely not offer you what you deserve, especially in an initial settlement offer. Exercise caution when communicating with an insurance company, and talk to your lawyer before signing anything.
