How to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in Boston
Being involved in a car accident can be a life-altering experience. In Boston, understanding the legal process for seeking compensation is crucial for accident victims. Massachusetts operates as a no-fault car insurance state, meaning that you typically file a claim under your own personal injury protection (PIP) car insurance coverage for medical care bills and financial losses, regardless of who caused the crash. 

However, there are situations where you can step outside of the no-fault system and file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. In this article, we’ll provide a detailed and comprehensive guide to help you navigate the complexities of filing a car accident lawsuit in Boston.

Massachusetts Personal Injury Deposition Tips for Plaintiffs

If you were injured due to negligence, you may find yourself involved in a lawsuit.  If it is you (or your attorney) that filed the lawsuit then you are referred to as the plaintiff and the party you sued is the defendant.

A deposition is a part of the lawsuit process which you may be required to undergo.  Whether it be a car accident case or other type of injury claim, most depositions work the same way.  Note if your case is a workers’ compensation case you will not be expected to go to a deposition.

Many people decide to take a stab at handling their automobile accident claim without an attorney.  That usually turns out to be a bad idea. 

Why would an insurance company be concerned about you suing their insured (the person or company that injured you and whom they insure) when you are not a lawyer?  Why would an insurance company pay you fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries when they know you don't have the leverage that an experienced attorney provides?  Why would an insurance company not try to trick you since you don't regularly handle personal injury claims? 

If you, or someone you know, has been injured in a car accident, call my office right now at 617 338 7400 or email me at for a completely free, no obligation consultation.  My office does not get paid unless your case settles or wins in court.

Someone Injured Me But I Can’t Afford To Hire An Attorney!

Not to worry.  One of the hallmarks of personal injury law is that the injury victim does not get billed an hourly rate.  Rather, the legal fee is a percentage of the gross amount recovered for the client.

Nearly all Massachusetts personal injury lawyers – as well as personal injury lawyers in other states –  take motor vehicle accident cases on a contingency fee basis.  What that means is that your attorney will take 33 1/3% (or possibly more if your case goes into suit) of any settlement or judgment amount as his/her legal fee at the conclusion of the case.  If your attorney advances any costs in prosecuting your claim, it is you that is ultimately responsible for any such costs.  Massachusetts workers’ compensation cases are also handled by contingency basis, and the amounts are set by law.

As mentioned on an earlier post, if you have been involved in an auto accident in Massachusetts, your insurance carrier will pay the first $2000.00 in medical bills you incur as a result of the accident. You may have to go to an Independent Medical Examination (IME) before your carrier pays for your medical bills, and that will be discussed in later posts.
In order to receive Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits from your carrier, you are required to fill and out and complete an application for PIP benefits. If you do not have an attorney representing you in your personal injury claim, I highly recommend that you pay an attorney to review your PIP application before you submit it to your carrier.
