Separating Fact from Fiction in Massachusetts Personal Injury Law

Whether you have been in a car crash, suffered an accident at work, had a slip and fall accident, or were the victim of medical malpractice, you are probably wondering whether you should file a personal injury claim in Massachusetts. There is a lot of information available on the web, but sometimes separating fact from fiction can be difficult. The following list of questions and answers is meant to help you make a more informed decision about your case:

  • Do I have to go to court? This is a common misconception when it comes to personal injury claims. Most cases are settled out of court because it is quicker and less expensive for the injured party and because insurance companies do not want to spend extra money on litigation or attract negative attention from the media.  Nevertheless, you should use a lawyer who can take your case to court.  It makes a difference.
  • Can I do it myself? Studies for the insurance industry prove that the client nets more by using a lawyer.  Everyone is legally capable of representing themselves. However, the experience and knowledge that a personal injury attorney can bring to your case may be priceless. A lawyer helps you file paperwork on time, conducts research, and represent you in court if need be.
  • How much is my case worth? This is a very difficult question to answer. Your compensation might include past lost wages, loss of future wages, past medical bills and future medical bills and pain and suffering.
  • How much will a lawyer cost? Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means they only get paid if you win your case, in which case they take a percentage of the settlement.

One of the best ways to find out if you need a lawyer is to speak to one. Contact a personal injury attorney today for a free consultation.
