While the 2008 Primary Seat Belt Law in Massachusetts has significantly decreased medical expenditures relating to driving accidents, the potential for injury can never be fully thwarted; this unfortunate reality affects New Bedford like anywhere else. For a bit of context, New Bedford lies approximately sixty miles from Boston on one of the Southern-most points of Massachusetts. It is known for its past of commercial whaling and was home to resident and whaler Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick. Frederick Douglass, a leader of the abolitionist movement during the Civil War, settled in New Bedford along with many other former slaves seeking refuge in the North.
The New Bedford residents for whom Attorney Jain has provided legal assistance have found his work extremely valuable. After the disarray that follows an accident, the exact details of the collision may not be recorded accurately in the police or accident reports. A skilled injury attorney can sort through these documents to extract the true story of your crash. An attorney can also circumnavigate complicated insurance processes: the other driver may be uninsured or under-insured, but our attorneys work with the insurance companies to deliver the reimbursement you deserve for your injuries. Attorney Burns and Jain will also work with traffic experts to reconstruct your accident if there are conflicting opinions about the succession of events of your collision.
Will My New Bedford Case Go To Court?
Your attorney will explain how your specific case will progress. A typical case will initially be filed as a “claim” with an insurance company. Your attorney will provide the insurance company with sufficient accident reports, medical records and lost earnings information to give the insurance company adjuster a good idea of how your case will progress. Most cases settle before a lawsuit is filed. Nevertheless, working with your attorney, it may be agreed that your case should be filed in court. This is not like television and nothing to worry about. Your attorney will explain how a lawsuit works. Usually, with sufficient discovery by the insurance defense attorney, your case will have been presented in a way that the insurance company will want to resolve it short of trial. Work with your experienced trial attorney to get the best result, in a claim, during the pendency of a lawsuit, or at trial.
