Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

Massachusetts personal injury lawyers are invaluable in obtaining fair and just compensation for your personal injury claim.

Personal injury lawyers are knowledgeable and experienced in the law, processing personal injury claims, evaluating and settling personal injury claims, and, if necessary, litigating and trying your case.

Free Initial Consultations

Most Massachusetts personal injury lawyers offer free initial consultations to their prospective clients.

No Fee Unless Successful

In personal injury claims, personal injury lawyers receive No Fee Unless Successful.  Attorneys 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.  Most attorneys charge one third of the gross amount collected (with the exception of medical malpractice cases) plus any out-of-pocket expenses they incur.


There is certain information you should bring to your meeting with the personal injury lawyer, including:

  • The names and addresses of witnesses.
  • Photographs of the accident scene and of any property damage.
  • Information about the person or company who caused the accident including their name, address and telephone number.
  • A sketch of the accident scene.
  • Any accident reports you may have.
  • The name of any providers including doctors, hospitals and therapists.
  • A detailed account of what happened and the injuries you suffered.

Personal Injury Attorney Services

Massachusetts personal injury lawyers provide professional and comprehensive legal services including:

Insurance Companies: Massachusetts personal injury lawyers correspond with, talk to, and ultimately negotiate with adjusters from insurance companies providing coverage for your personal injury claim.

Damages: Your attorney will obtain and review your medical records, your medical bills and help you with any issues you may have with getting your medical bills paid, loss wage information and help you obtain compensation for loss wages to which you are entitled while you are waiting for the outcome of your claim.

Investigation: Your claim will be investigated in order to obtain evidence on the issue of liability. The investigation may include obtaining witness statements, photos of the scene of the accident and any property damage, police reports, certified weather reports, fire department records, maps, instruction manuals, and various other reports and records.

Medical Research: If necessary, Massachusetts personal injury lawyers will research your medical condition in order to have a better understanding of your injury and to help them explain your condition to an insurance adjuster, judge or jury.

Legal Research: Your attorney will be knowledgeable about personal injury law, and he will research any legal issues which may arise while he is processing your personal injury claim.

Experts: Sometimes experts are needed to prove liability and/or damages. If necessary, your attorney will retain the services of qualified experts.

Evaluation and Settlement: Once you have reached an end medical result (which means that you have fully recovered, or your doctor determines that your condition will not improve with further treatment and you are permanently disabled), your personal injury lawyer will evaluate your claim and attempt to settle your case with the defendant’s insurance company.

Lawsuit: If a fair and just settlement cannot be achieved, your attorney will file a lawsuit against the defendant, aggressively prosecute your lawsuit and, if necessary, go to Trial.

Cooperation: You should cooperate and communicate with your attorney to help insure that he/she is fully informed about your claim and to insure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

Informed: Experienced Massachusetts personal injury lawyers keep their clients informed of any important developments concerning their claim.
