New Bedford Accident

New Bedford is a thriving residential and commercial town, thriving off its fishing and manufacturing industries that are embedded deep into the history as the "whaling city." Located several miles south of Boston, but accessible by several major roadways, New Bedford welcomes visitors to enjoy its waterfront views. The city also offers educational opportunities to visitors to the New Bedford Whaling Museum and to students attending the city's campuses for the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Bristol Community College.

Yet like all places, New Bedford is the occasional site of accidents. At Altman & Altman, LLP, we use our over 4 decades of experience helping clients to recover what they deserve, including medical expenses and pain and suffering damages. Our seasoned attorneys will listen to your story, inform you of your legal options, and advise you of your best course of action. If you decide to pursue a claim against a negligent or reckless party, we will work hard to settle your case, but are equally as prepared to take your case to trial to seek strong financial recovery.

It's undeniable: accidents complicate your life in a variety of unpredictable, and often stressful, ways. The emotional consequences, physical pain, medical bills, frequent doctors' appointments, and calls to your insurance provider can get overwhelming. It is important, however, to get the medical attention you need as soon as possible to prevent your injury or illness from becoming more serious. Financial compensation from a negligent party can ease the financial stress of these added expenses and help you afford surgeries, medications, mental health visits, medical devices like wheelchairs, and transportation assistance.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP

    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
