Do I Need a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Do I Need a Lawyer For a Personal Injury Suit?

The quick answer is yes! You can be certain that you will face very experienced attorneys and/or insurance claims adjusters. For successful results, you need —and deserve — serious professional representation. We attorneys at Feinberg & Alban PC specialize in the area of personal injury. For more than 70 years, we have been helping Massachusetts residents obtain rightful compensation for all kinds of injuries. We are your advocates and the defense attorneys and/or claims adjusters are not. Regardless of whether they are sympathetic and interested in hearing about your plight, they are adversaries. You should think of them as “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. That is the nature of our system.

Knowledge of Massachusetts laws

Our well-trained and experienced team has more than 150 years combined experience fighting for justice in courts throughout the region. We have a history of successful outcomes and call upon this experience with every new client’s case. Knowing Massachusetts personal injury, workmen’s compensation and auto accident law is just the beginning. The firm is committed to applying state and national laws to protect and provide justice for you. We know how to file a personal injury claim on your behalf and understand injury medicine and how it pertains to the compensation. For example, we can clarify to you how the Massachusetts Comparative Negligence statute, M.G.L. c. 231, s. 85 benefit (or hinder) your case and we plan accordingly. The point is that we are aware of any changes in the law. Statutes, judicial opinions and regulations are made regularly and some will directly affect your case.

Experience disputing evidence

Suing for damages means more than just writing a claim letter. The opposing side uses various means to dispute your claim(s). You need a professional who knows the rules of evidence in Massachusetts and can respond to discovery requests appropriately. We have the technical, medical and legal background to assess evidence and provide  a strong case on your behalf. The testimonials that you see in this website attest to that skill. Moreover, the verdicts and settlements page reflects impressively, or so we like to think, on our abilities.

Achieving an insurance settlement after an accident

With decades of experience, we handle all types of insurance disputes and can navigate the personal injury settlement process effectively. After decades in the field of accident law, our background gives us an edge. We know deadlines and statutes of limitations so we won’t miss an important date. If an insurance agency reconstructs the accident in an incorrect manner or tries to blame you for circumstances that were not your fault, having a seasoned advocate can make all the difference.

Negotiating a settlement

An insurance company’s offer is just that: an offer. You have the right to accept or renegotiate. Insurance companies want to save money and may attempt to entice you to resolve your case quickly, even before you have reached a maximum medical result. We always inform our clients that it is in their best interests to wait to see how the injury has developed and to have, in the appropriate circumstances, an evaluation performed by a very capable medical professional. In the meantime, the facts of the case are developed and after the process has unfolded, the time is right to consider resolving the case prior to a trial. Any settlement must address all major aspects of your damages claim, including compensation for loss of earning capacity, compensation for pain and suffering and all the elements of a party’s damages. Furthermore, medical liens and medical charges must be considered and resolved so that you do not face bill collectors in the coming months and years. If you choose to resolve a case on your own, that is certainly your prerogative but please be mindful of these considerations. They are formidable.

Lawsuits can be stressful and complex

If you have been through a traumatic event — a workplace injury, a painful physical injury or the loss of a loved one — it is enough to get through each day and heal. When you hire legal counsel to represent you, you leave the details to serious professionals who act on your behalf.
