When you choose Glickman, Sugarman, Kneeland & Gribouski, you're not just hiring a skilled attorney, you're also going to learn about how the legal and insurance processes will play out from the beginning to the end.
That's because we take the time with all our clients to answer all their questions and guide them through the system. We'll help you understand your rights under Massachusetts law and how the law pertains to your individual case.
Basically, there are four main areas of concern:
- No-fault Insurance.
Massachusetts is a no-fault insurance state, which means it doesn't matter who's at fault for your injuries when it comes time to file a claim. You file a claim regardless of who's at fault, then negotiate with your insurer -- and possibly the other party’s insurance company -- to get what you're due.
- Statue of Limitations.
If you don't file a lawsuit within three years of the accident, your chances for compensation and reimbursement for medical bills will be forfeit. Because injuries don't always surface immediately after an accident, it's important to keep an eye on the timeline after your accident. Contacting an attorney at GSK&G sooner rather than later can help ensure witnesses and evidence are preserved and available when you need them.
- Third-party Responsibility.
Some complex accidents can be attributed to a number of different causes, including those parties responsible for maintaining safe roads and parking lots. The attorneys with our firm will make sure that any liability that can be attributed to those third parties - whether they are government agencies or businesses - are held responsible for the part they may have played in causing an accident.
- Commercial Trucks.
The commercial trucking industry is heavily regulated to ensure the safety of the roads and the public. If your crash involves a commercial truck, there's an entire Pandora's box of federal and state regulations to review in order to determine potential liability. Our attorneys know those regulations and can help make sure that commercial companies who fail to follow the rules are held accountable.
