From minor fender benders to serious accidents resulting in extensive injuries and property damage, the motor vehicle accident team at Altman & Altman LLP can help you get the compensation you deserve. Massachusetts is a no-fault state and most motorists, with the exception of motorcyclists, are covered by their own Personal Injury Protection insurance. But that doesn’t mean that all of your expenses will be paid in the event of an accident. For starters, your medical costs may far exceed PIP's policy limits, as well as the limits of your own medical insurance coverage.
If the at-fault driver has inadequate insurance coverage, or no coverage at all, you may be entitled to recover from your own insurance company through an uninsured or underinsured policy as well.
Long story short, motor vehicle accidents can be extremely complex, and many accident victims end up settling for significantly less than what they’re entitled to, simply because they lack experienced legal representation.Time is of the Essence
The attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP have years of experience litigating claims involving motor vehicles, and we are proficient in evaluating liability in motor vehicle accidents. One of the most important steps an individual should take following a motor vehicle accident is to preserve their legal rights. In Massachusetts, there is a Statute of Limitations regarding claims for all motor vehicle accidents and it is of the utmost importance to contact an attorney before your rights are barred by one of these provisions. The attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP will take all the necessary steps to ensure that your rights are protected and will expedite the process of getting you compensated for the injuries you have suffered.
No two motor vehicle accidents are alike, and Altman & Altman LLP has attorneys that are experienced in dealing with personal injury and wrongful death cases involving car accidents, truck collisions, train accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle crashes, and pedestrian accidents, respectively.
MBTA trains, Amtrak and Acela accidents, and school buses are "common carriers" upheld to a higher responsibility of care than regular drivers. Altman & Altman LLP knows how to investigate and prove negligence with these sometimes more complex cases. We also have successfully represented motor vehicle crash clients with products liability claims and lawsuits against the manufacturers of defective automobile and auto parts (defective airbags, faulty seat belts, engine malfunctions, etc), as well as in cases involving SUV rollovers.
First and foremost, you will only pay for our services if we are successful in recovering a settlement for you. The attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP also understand that car accident injuries can make travel to our office difficult, therefore, home and suburban appointments can be set up with one of our many experienced attorneys.

If you are involved in any type of motor vehicle or transportation accident, including car, truck, bus, motorcycle, or train accidents, gather as much information as possible at the time of the accident. The more information the better. Pictures, contact information of witnesses, witness testimonies, other driver information (driver’s license number, insurance info, and contact info), and any other supporting details can be immensely helpful in a lawsuit.
Fortunately, most smartphones are equipped with a camera. Following an accident, use that camera to photograph the scene, property damage to your vehicle, and any visible injuries. If you don’t have a pen and paper, you can also use your smartphone to store notes with pertinent information, such as driver and witness contact info and the day and time of the accident.
Even if you think you may be the at-fault driver, it is still wise to contact a skilled motor vehicle accident attorney immediately. Time is of the essence with auto accident lawsuits. For starters, memories tend to fade as time goes by. Also, there are statutes of limitation regarding these types of accidents.
