Before you even think about filing suit, get medical attention immediately. Regardless of the situation, any injured parties need to get their injuries addressed. In addition, the State of Massachusetts requires you to comply with an insurance company request for additional medical examinations or your benefits may be terminated. This is particularly true in a car accident case.
It is important to make a record of the event. Try to gather and keep the following records:
When you or a loved one has been hurt, you may not know if someone else is to blame. Contact the team at Feinberg & Allen, P.C. for a no-obligation assessment of your situation.

The firm handles all types of personal injury cases, including:
You may wonder, do I need a lawyer for a personal injury claim? Tort law and other compensation law is complicated. Your opponent will likely hire counsel, so it is in your best interests to retain your own counsel to stand up for you.
Once you engage counsel, the firm files a complaint with the court. The complaint describes the incident and summarizes your claim against the other party – the defendant. The defendant has a right to respond by filing an answer.
Typically, this is followed by a period called “discovery.” During discovery, the parties divulge the information, facts or evidence they plan to use in the suit. This may include oral or written depositions, or interviews under oath.
Prior to a trial, your attorney will meet the opposing attorney for a pre-trial conference ordered by the court.
During the legal process, either party may offer and negotiate a settlement. The settlement process can be easy or cumbersome.
The trial is your opportunity to prove how the defendant caused your injury, possibly through negligence. Both sides present their evidence, and both have the opportunity to fight the allegations or dispute the evidence.
As your counsel, our firm will guide you through each step:
Appeals are not a retrial of already-heard evidence. An appeal needs to be based on a claim that there was a judicial or other kind of error in the original suit.
In general, Massachusetts gives you three years to file a lawsuit. However, that is only a general rule. There are “notice provisions” that govern various claims. These can require a certified letter to an appropriate authority within thirty days, M.G.L. c. 84, or within two years, M.G.L. c. 258.
