Frequently Asked Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyer Questions
How do I find a personal injury attorney near me?
Hire us as we will come to you if that is more convenient for you.
Do I have a case?
It depends. Is the other party at fault? Are you at fault? Did you sustain injuries arising from the accident?
How long does the process take?
When you are finished with your medical treatment is a good time to open a dialogue with the insurance company about a possible settlement.
How long do I have to bring a claim?
Most Massachusetts personal injury cases have a 3-year statute of limitations, but some have a shorter, or longer limitations period.
Will I have to go to court?
The vast majority of cases do settle, but sometimes lawsuits are necessary. Even after a lawsuit is filed a case can still settle.
What is negligence?
Negligence is failing to act reasonably in a situation and causing injury to someone as a direct result.
How are Boston injury attorneys paid?
We do not collect a legal fee unless we recover compensation for you.
What Should I Do If I’ve Been Injured In An Accident?
Here are some important steps you should take to protect your rights. What is best to do after the accident really depends on the type of case.
First, if necessary, you should immediately seek medical treatment. It’s important to understand that with many types of injuries, a person may feel like it’s not serious and that they will get better in a few days, when in fact the injury is far more severe than first believed.
Additionally, you should always carefully follow the advice of your treating physician. If you’re told, for example, not to work or not to engage in specific types of activities, then please follow this advice.
Not only is it important to follow medical instructions for healing purposes, but if litigation is necessary, it will be important to show that you carefully followed all medical instructions you were given.
Regardless of the type of accident, it is wise to take photos after the accident in order to visually document scene of the accident. Take photographs too of your injuries – as soon as possible after the accident.
If there were any witnesses to the accident, collect and keep their full contact information. The more proof that can be established the more it will help your case.

What Is The Personal Injury Claim Process in Massachusetts?
Once you have hired us as your legal counsel, the first step is for us to investigate what happened, and who is responsible. Investigators may be utilized to secure witness statements.
Letters of representation will be sent to insurance companies, and if necessary, to the property owner where the accident happened. Requests for medical records and medical bills will be sent to your medical providers. Accident photos and injury photos will be secured.
Once we have obtained proof of lost wages, as well as your medical records and medical bills, a settlement demand package will be sent to the insurance company.
Our office and the insurance adjuster will enter into settlement negotiations. If a settlement is reached the case will be over. If a settlement is not reached a lawsuit will need to be filed.
The Court Process
If the case does not settle with the insurance company, then a lawsuit will be filed. A large part of the litigation process is referred to as discovery.
Discovery largely consists of interrogarories, requests for production of documents, and depositions. The case very well may settle during litigation. If it does not, the case will go to trial.
