Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyer FAQ’s
What is personal injury law?
Personal injury law revolves around injury and death caused by negligence. This area of law includes motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, slips and falls, dog bites, wrongful death, and all other injury cases. Personal injury law is designed to financially compensate injury victims for all damages and losses they suffer stemming from the negligence of someone else. Personal injury law is a branch of civil law.
How do I find a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer 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? If liability can be established against the other party, and you were injured, then you probably have a case worth pursuing.
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. Some cases take months, some take years, but the average case takes roughly 6 months to settle, from the date of the injury.
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. If you think you have a case it is best to take prompt action to hire a qualified Massachusetts personal injury lawyer.
How much is my case worth?
Each case is different, but factors that are considered in case valuation are whether or not liability or fault can be established against the other party; how much your medical bills total; how long your medical treatment lasted for; whether you lost wages; whether you suffered any permanent injuries, etc.
Are Massachusetts personal injury settlements taxable?
Under neither Massachusetts or federal law are you responsible for paying taxes on a personal injury case settlement.
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. Trial is always a possibility, but it is really only a remote possibility. I am a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer that has experience going to court and trying cases in front of juries.
What is negligence?
Negligence is failing to act reasonably in a situation and causing injury to someone as a direct result. If someone negligently caused injury to you, you are entitled to receive financial compensation.
How are you paid?
We do not collect a legal fee unless we recover compensation for you. That is called a contingency fee. Bottom line: we only get paid if we win your case.
What To Do After A Massachusetts Personal Injury Accident
If you had a personal injury accident in Massachusetts, there 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. 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. If there were any witnesses to the accident, it is wise to collect their full contact information.
For Massachusetts car accident cases, contact your car insurance company, but don’t speak with the other driver’s insurance company.

The Personal Injury Claim Process
Once you have hired us as your Massachusetts personal injury lawyer, the first step is for us to investigate what happened, and who is responsible.

Requests for medical records and medical bills will be sent to your medical providers. Accident photos and injury photos will be secured.
A settlement demand package will be sent to the insurance company. The insurance company generally has 30 days from receipt each the demand package to make an offer. Your personal injury lawyer 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 lawsuit will need to be filed. The case very well may settle during litigation. If it does not the case will go to trial.
