Car Accidents Resulting in Personal Injury Are Not Accidents

Being involved in a Massachusetts motor vehicle collision, where you or a family member have suffered a personal injury, is a troubling time. A collision is not necessarily an accident. The person who hit you was not paying attention. Maybe they were on their phone? Maybe they were impaired and shouldn’t have been on the road?  Insurance companies, you have been paying for years (and never truly quite understood what you were buying) can seem to be more interested in requiring extensive paperwork and limiting the amount of money paid on your claims.  Mounting medical bills, lost wages and uncertainty about the future for yourself and your family add to the trouble.

Our office has assisted people recover compensation for lost income and disability suffered as a result on another’s negligence for over 30 years. Be it a Massachusetts motor vehicle accident collision, accident caused by a drunk driver, construction site injury or animal attack we have the experience to negotiate a fair and full settlement of your claims. We can assist you in obtaining the money you deserve and possess the litigation capability to pursue your claim in court if an insurance company refuses to deal with your fairly.

Evidence at an accident scene is either removed or destroyed within days. It is in your best interests to contact our office as soon as possible so that we can undertake immediate action to preserve your rights.

Our office handles accident cases on a contingency fee basis. We do not receive any compensation for the time we spend on your case unless we help you actually recover money for your losses.

Initial conferences in negligence cases are always given the highest priority and are absolutely free.

Do Not Assume An Insurance Adjuster Will Treat You Fairly After Your Car Accident

A car accident cause you headaches under the best of circumstance. The law in Massachusetts gives those who have been injured as a result of another drivers negligence the ability to recover lost wages, the cost of medical bills and pain and suffering only when they have incurred medical injuries that require more than $2,000 to treat, have become permanently disfigured or killed.

In addition to establishing the negligence of the other driver you will also find navigating the complex, and sometimes conflicting, provisions of the various insurance policies that come into play maddening. The base Massachusetts motor vehicle policy ( which everyone is required to obtain to register a vehicle) provides both “first party” benefits for you and those in your vehicle regardless of fault (i.e., PIP) and “third-party” benefits to protect you from claims made by other persons. After a car accident your health insurance may become involved. They will have the ability to intervene in your claim to reimburse themselves for any monies payout on your behalf. Having an attorney to guide you through this process is necessary to assure that you will not lose valuable rights and will receive the highest levels of compensation.

My office has handled car accident cases for over 35 years and has the experience and determination to preserve your rights to just and fair compensation. We will handle a car accident case on a “contingency fee” basis and only charge a fee when successful recovering monies on your behalf. We do not charge you anything for handling the Personal Injury Protection portion of your auto policy.
