Jeffrey Glassman Injury Lawyers Has Handled Claims for Accidents in Brockton, MA

If you think you are not at risk of being involved in a traffic accident, think again. While some studies suggest fatal car accidents are declining, thanks partially to safety technology in newer cars, other studies show that, in general, car, truck, and SUV accidents are increasing. Distracted driving behaviors, such as drivers using cell phones while they are behind the wheel, drivers sleeping while their car drives itself, and drivers not paying attention, are one of the leading causes of car crashes.

Traffic congestion is another factor. Brockton, Massachusetts, is the sixth-largest city in the state and has a population of about 100,000. A large population translates to heavy traffic and accident-prone roadways.

In Brockton, Route 24, which spans 40 miles, is a six-lane divided highway that passes through the city's west side, with exits at Route 27 to the north and Route 123 to the south. Route 27 and Route 123 pass through the center of the city. Massachusetts Route 28 passes from north to south through the city's center, and the western end of Route 14 and the southern end of Route 37 are both in the city. Accidents are common on these main roadways, especially on and near exit ramps.

  1. Ash Street and West Elm Street
  2. Court Street and Montello Street
  3. Forest Avenue and Bouve Avenue
  4. Main Street and Nilsson Street
  5. Warren Avenue and Father Kenney Way
  6. Main Street and Legion Parkway
  7. Warren Avenue and Forest Avenue

Steps to Take if You Are in a Car Crash in Brockton

Obtain prompt medical treatment if you have been in a car accident in Brockton. Even if you believe that your injuries are minor, seek medical attention. You could have internal injuries or other injuries that are not readily apparent. Medical documentation is key to any claim or case. An insurance company could argue that your injuries are not connected to the accident or are not serious because you failed to seek medical treatment after the accident.

Collect contact information for the parties involved and any witnesses at the scene. Document the accident scene by taking cellphone pictures or videos and making detailed notes.

Your next step is to speak with an experienced Brockton car accident attorney about your case. A car accident attorney will help you understand your rights under the law and review all options you have to recover from your injuries.

Getting a Car Accident Report in Brockton

As mentioned above, a car accident claim or case's success depends on evidence showing that another driver was negligent and responsible for your injuries.

One piece of evidence that you can use to build a case against any at-fault parties is a crash report. In Brockton, you can obtain a crash report from the Records Department at the Brockton Police Department for a $5 fee.

You can also purchase and print an accident report online through the LexisNexis BuyCrash site for a car accident in Brockton. You will need to enter some basic information about the crash, such as the date of the incident, location, and report number.

If you have questions, contact the Records Department at (508) 941-0208 or e-mail

How Our Law Office Can Help With Your Car Accident Claim

A car accident lawyer will perform an extensive investigation of the accident using experts, if necessary, and will work to collect evidence of the other driver's negligence. In addition, a lawyer will look at whether another party is legally liable for your injuries. For example, responsible parties could include an additional motorist, a car manufacturer, or a town or city. The city of Brockton or the state of Massachusetts could be liable for any hazards the road where the accident took place had that led to the incident.

An attorney will contact the other driver's auto insurance company on your behalf to ensure you are treated fairly and receive full compensation for your injuries.

If the at-fault driver's insurance policy does not contain sufficient coverage to reimburse you for your injuries, you could file a claim with your auto insurer and recover under your insurance policy. An attorney will help you make that determination.

If an insurance company contacts you, you should refer the insurer to your car accident lawyer. You do not have a legal duty to speak to an insurance company.

A common mistake that car accident victims make is accepting a settlement offer too early. Even minor car accident injuries can turn into major ones over time. Once you sign settlement papers, you have given up your ability to make any additional claims related to the accident. An experienced car accident attorney will ensure you can settle your claim prematurely.
