Hiring a Lawyer
Suffering an injury is always devastating, but especially when it could have been avoided if a person or company had been a bit more careful. Fortunately, the law provides injured victims with the right to be "made whole" by making a claim against the person who caused them harm. However, to fully understand and take advantage of your legal rights, it is very important to hire a personal injury lawyer.
An experienced Massachusetts attorney can assist for many different reasons. First and foremost, when you are injured and making a claim, you'll typically be dealing with an insurance company who has a team of lawyers and legal professionals whose best interests are directly opposite your own. To protect your legal rights, level the playing field and ensure you get the benefits the law allows, you need your own legal advocate. At The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, LLC, we provide knowledgeable legal advice and professional legal representation to individuals who have suffered from all types of injuries.

When you have suffered from an injury, your Boston personal injury attorney will do a number of important tasks for you including:
- Assessing who could potentially be held responsible. In some cases, there are multiple possible defendants. For instance, if you are injured in a trucking accident, the truck driver may be responsible but also his employer. Getting a full list of potential defendants is a smart choice as you can collect compensation from multiple parties who caused you harm.
- Helping to gather evidence to prove your case. You have the burden of proving that, more likely than not, the defendant breached a legal duty owed to you and caused you harm as a result. Our Massachusetts personal injury lawyers can help you to gather the evidence you need.
- Negotiating a settlement with the insurance company. Many personal injury cases are settled without a trial if the insurance company for the defendant accepts fault and makes a fair settlement offer. Your attorney will help you to know what is fair and will use his negotiating skills to make sure you get the largest possible settlement you can. Remember, insurers aren't acting in your best interests- they care about their bottom line and will do everything possible to get you to accept less.
- Filing and proving a case in court. If a fair settlement isn't reached, you can go to court and prove your case and have a jury award damages as part of a tort lawsuit. There are many court rules related to everything from where and when to file suit to what specific font that court documents have to be in. Your lawyer will handle all procedural details and will also help you to find witnesses and present evidence in a way that convinces the jury to see things your way.
The fact that your lawyer can help you with all of these important tasks shows you the many reasons why you need a lawyer after you have suffered an injury. When hiring a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer, you should ensure that you hire a law firm with a long track record of success in representing clients in personal injury cases.
