How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?
Massachusetts personal injury law provides that in order to prevail against the person who caused your injury, your personal injury attorney must prove liability, causation and damages by a ‘preponderance of the evidence’ (or in other words, when all of the evidence is weighed that the matter is more probably true than not.) Take a look at this simplified guide to Massachusetts personal injury claims.
Should I speak to the insurance company?
Giving a recorded statement to the defendant’s insurer can harm your personal injury claim. The adjuster is on the lookout for information that he can use to impeach your credibility and pay you less money for your claim. When the adjuster takes your statement, he will be experienced, prepared, and have a plan after having investigated your claim. On the other hand, it is not likely you will be prepared and may be in pain or on medication.Speak with Us First
How much does a Massachusetts personal injury attorney cost?
In personal injury claims, Massachusetts personal injury lawyers are required to sign contingent fee agreements with their client that provide, in part, that the attorney’s fee is contingent upon compensation to be paid for the recovery of damages and the client is not to be liable to pay compensation to the lawyer other than from amounts collected for him/her by the personal injury lawyer.Click Here for Your FREE Consultation
