Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Boston, Malden

Motor Vehicle Accident Frequently Asked Questions

If you are coping with a serious injury from a crash, you need to stay informed. If you fail to do so, you could be taken advantage of. Insurance companies and other drivers have an incentive to offer you less money than you deserve in order to minimize their own losses. With over 50 years' experience in Boston, Malden, and Everett, Massachusetts as motor vehicle accident attorneys, the lawyers of Rodman, Rodman & Sandman can help you defend your rights and seek compensation for your injuries.

What should I do at the scene of a motor vehicle accident?

Many motor vehicle accident victims compromise their cases out of ignorance. It is important to remember that simply knowing another party is to blame is not enough. You must have evidence to support the claim. Our motor vehicle accident attorneys specialize in winning large verdicts and settlements for accident victims, but even the best motor vehicle accident lawyers can only work with the evidence that is available.

For this reason, you should always take photos of the accident scene before moving any of the vehicles involved. Never apologize or otherwise admit fault to other drivers - simply exchange insurance information and no more. Collect contact information from any witnesses. Always report accidents to your insurance company immediately, and to the police if there is significant property damage or an injury.

Whose fault is my accident?

Fault in a motor vehicle accident is sometimes difficult to assign. In some cases, each driver may be partly at fault. Generally speaking, fault is assigned to drivers whose negligence or recklessness contributed to the accident. This includes speeding and violating other traffic laws, failing to check blind spots or mirrors when necessary, and other careless mistakes, as well as aggressive driving habits or road rage.

How do I know whether I need an attorney?

Occasionally, one motorist will admit full responsibility for an accident and his or her insurance will cover all the relevant expenses. More commonly, though, drivers will dispute liability and insurance companies will offer unfair settlements in an attempt to save money. In almost every case, retaining motor vehicle accident attorneys pays dividends. Many motor vehicle accident victims choose Rodman, Rodman & Sandman lawyers after receiving an offer that is insufficient to cover their expenses. We know how to negotiate aggressively with insurance companies and others in order to make the most of each case. We may be able to dramatically increase the size of your settlement.

What types of compensation am I entitled to?

You are entitled to compensation for all damages you incur during an accident that was not your fault. This includes property damage, medical bills, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering caused by your motor vehicle accident. Our attorneys seek all conceivable forms of compensation when representing residents of Boston, Malden, and the surrounding area. Recovering from a motor vehicle accident is costly. Our lawyers understand your priorities and work to get every dollar possible from your case.
