The personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman in Boston are a different kind of legal firm. We have extensive experience and a long track record of successes in settlements and trials across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Beyond that, our clients know we care. They trust us, knowing we prevail in some of the most challenging cases - including those with the most serious injuries and in which proof of liability may be heavily disputed.
We have recovered millions of dollars and helped over 20,000 injured clients in Boston and beyond - even when some were initially uncertain of their claim's viability.
Our Massachusetts injury attorneys devote ample time to every case we take on, from initial consultation to resolution - and appeals too if necessary. We conduct thorough investigations, work with some of the most highly-qualified expert witnesses and use our expansive knowledge of the state and federal legal system to help you deftly navigate claims ranging from simple and straightforward injury to exceedingly complex class-action lawsuits and multi-district litigation. Our attorneys are also skilled orators, adept at delivering persuasive arguments in every setting - from early talks across mediation tables to the closing arguments of a complicated jury trial.
As a team, we are proud of building one of the most prominent civil injury law firms in Greater Boston, with integrity and innumerable recommendations and testimonials from former clients, as well as our peers in the legal community.Highly Qualified and Dedicated Injury Lawyers in Boston
At The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, we are committed and uncompromising on our goal of ensuring individuals and families we represent receive the full and fair compensation to which they are entitled. When a sudden catastrophic injury or wrongful death of a loved one upends your life (especially leaving you unable to work or enjoy activities in which you once reveled), your first thought may not be pursuit of legal action. Inevitably though, many families soon confront the crushing financial fallout. The sooner you hire a qualified injury attorney, the faster we can launch our investigation, giving us the best chance to preserve important evidence. Life may never again be the same, but our dedicated legal team strives to help clients recover damages from those whose careless, reckless or intentional acts caused lasting harm.
In doing so, we achieve accountability. When our Massachusetts injury law firm seeks a finding of liability against reckless drivers, careless doctors, negligent property owners, dangerous product manufacturers or employers who fail to provide safe workplaces, it sends a strong message: This isn't tolerable. If you breach your duty to keep others safe or perform your job to the standard expected, you will answer for the damage you cause.
Ultimately, our mission is to help make Boston a safer place.How Do I Pay for Personal Injury Representation?
Our Massachusetts injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis. Unique circumstances of each case will dictate the exact terms, but essentially this means we arrange at the outset to accept a percentage of whatever we win for you - and only if we win. You are not responsible to pay attorney's fees if we are ultimately unsuccessful with your claim.How Much Time Do I Have to File an Injury Claim?
Each civil claim is subject to a statute of limitations that sets a deadline on filing your claim - or else a victim loses the opportunity forever. The question of how much time you have may be more complicated than it initially seems because the law does sometimes allow for "tolling" (pausing) of the time limits under certain conditions. Generally though, claims for personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death must be filed within three years , per MGL Ch. 260 § 2A , MGL Ch. 260 § 4 and MGL Ch. 229 § 2 . Workers' compensation claims usually need to be filed within four years . Depending on the case, there may be specific notice requirements that could preclude recovery. This is another reason why it is important to secure experienced personal injury representation as soon as possible.Choosing the Best Boston Personal Injury Law Firm
Hiring a Massachusetts injury attorney is a big decision. The person you trust with the outcome of your case is someone with whom you will be working closely for months or even years, and whose work may profoundly impact your future.
We've taken on tough cases other attorneys turned down - and won. Those include clients injured while intoxicated or by defendants who intentionally caused harm (something for which most insurers won't provide coverage). We've secured more than $15 million for women who suffered life-altering injuries due to dangerous and defective vaginal mesh, more than $9 million for a baby whose cerebral palsy was caused by medical malpractice, $3.8 million for a motorcyclist who suffered catastrophic injuries in a crash and more than $3.2 million for a child injured in an automobile collision caused in part by a defective product.
Occasionally, other Massachusetts law firms will refer cases to us because they recognize us as a leader in this field and know we have the skill and the means to deliver advantageous outcomes in some of the most difficult legal matters.
Our client testimonials are extensive, with expressions of gratitude filled with words like, "wonderful," "diligent," "patient," "persistent" and "amazing." Many underscore that, with our dedication, "Justice did prevail."Count on the Best Possible Outcome for Maximum Compensation
