We are Boston Personal Injury Lawyers
You or a loved one has been injured and it's not your or his or her
fault. You are dealing with medical treatment, pain, inconvenience, and
growing financial uncertainty, and are now faced with the prospect of
having to negotiate fair compensation with an adjustor from the insurance
company or the insurance company's defense attorney. It can be a frustraiting
process and, logically, the other side is going to do whatever it can
to avoid paying you the full value of what you deserve.
We are Turco Legal, a leading Boston personal injury firm, working every
day to bring justice to our clients across Massachusetts who have been
injured due to the negligence of another. But we don't do it by handling
every detail of yoru case from start to finish. That's simply not
a logical way to get you the best recovery. There are too many different
types of cases within personal injury and, just as every case has its
unique facts, so too does every lawyer have his or her unique strengths
and experiences. So rather than tell you that we're the best injury
lawyers to handle your case, we'll instead screen the case, assess
its strenths and weaknesses, speak with you about your preferences, and
then connect you with the lawyer we feel will give you the best possible
result and experience.
What's more, having us hand select who we feel will be the best lawyer
for you doesn't cost you a penny more than if you found the lawyer
on your own. That's because we're paid by a referral fee out of
the lawyer's attorney fee. Think that lawyer has a problem paying
us? Not at all. We work with dozens and dozens of lawyers, sending them
the cases perfectly suited to them based on their experience and results.
It's common practice to pay referral fees amongst Massachusetts lawyers
for personal injury referrals and so the lawyers pay them regardless of
how much went into the screening or quality of the case.
Helping our clients get the best possible recovery is not just a job for
us and it's not just about the money. For us, it's about getting
you what you deserve. It's about getting you justice and not allowing
a well-funded insurance company to pursuade you to settle for something
less than what you deserve.
What types of personal injury cases do we handle? We'll speak with
you regardless of the type of case, something our competitors can't
ordinarily do. The reason is that, unlike most of them, we work in collaboration
with experts across the spectrum of personal injury law. By doing so,
we've developed a strong understanding of what makes a case and what
doesn't. So, we represent clients in cases of almost any type of injury,
whether resulting from someone's negligence or from a dangerous product.
Call us or contact us online today and you learn why our clients refer
us to their friends and family.
We have experience.
With hundreds of cases under our belt and thousands completed by the lawyers
with whom we collaborate, we know how to take your case from initial consultation
to recovery. In fact, our experience includes arguing cases both in and
out of the courtroom, so we know what it takes to get a great recovery
and we know an experienced and skilled lawyer when we see one. If you
want the best recovery, get an experienced legal team that's successfully
recovered in cases just like yours. Call us today and we'll make sure
you get one.
We have the resources.
We partner with over a hundred experienced personal injury lawyers and
have a dedicated staff, the right technology, and the financial backing
to take even the most complex cases to trial. When personal injury attorneys
in Boston and across Massachusetts are compensated almost identically,
why settle for a legal team with less to offer?
We take cases to trial.
The world of personal injury litigation is smaller than you may think.
The defense attorneys know which plaintiff lawyers take cases to trial
and they know which lawyers tend to fold for smaller settlements. We and
our partner lawyers go to trial if that's what will get the best possible
recovery for our clients.
Your case is our life.
At our personal injury firm, we find our clients are amazed at our accessibility
and how on top of our injury cases we really are. It's more than a
marketing gimmick - it is our firm's culture and our founder's
personal mission. From your first call, we make our personal injury lawyers
available to speak with you about your case, day or night, seven days
a week. Really. Worried you might fall out of the loop as to the status
of your case? Fear not. Not only will you receive regular updates, you'll
always have a dedicated lawyer and paralegal to reach and discuss your
case's status and strategy.
You pay nothing unless we win.
This is called contingent fee representation and it is how we operate.
We realize injuries often result in financial hardship and we are not
about to let a well financed insurance company off the hook because you
can't afford to pay an attorney. We will take your case to trial and
you won't pay a dime unless we win. We will even front the costs.
Better yet, as your personal injury lawyer, when we recover, our compensation
is a percentage of your recovery, so our interests are always perfectly
aligned to get the best recovery possible.
We are based in Boston, but we will come to you, anywhere in Massachusetts.
We realize you're injured and getting around may be more difficult
than it used to be. That's why we don't require you to come into
our main Boston office to have your case assessed by an experienced lawyer.
When you call, we'll first connect you with the attorney by phone.
You'll get to explain your case and ask any questions you might have.
The lawyer will give you his or her initial thoughts and, if you both
feel the case is worth pursuing at that point, we'll schedule a time
for the attorney to visit you at your home or at another location convenient
for you. Rest assured, we're ready to do the heavy lifting from the
very beginning. So, what are you waiting for? Call us at (866) 995-6663
to speak with a expert about your case.
Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions
What is personal injury law?
Answer: Personal injury law is a relatively broad area of practice primarily
dealing with negligence actions, but sometimes strict liability actions,
in which the client or his or her family member has been injured. The
greatest volume of cases are car accidents, slip and falls, and animal
attacks. However, the larger recovery cases tend to be product liability
and medical malpractice cases.
How do I find the right personal injury lawyer?
Finding the right personal injury lawyer for you requires some diligence
on your part. There are thousands of Massachusetts lawyers who take on
personal injury cases. In working with clients, colleagues, and adversaries,
we recommend you first consider the experience, results, and former client
feedback of the attorney. Then meet with the lawyers you consider capable
to handle the matter. Discuss the case facts and your expectations and
assess with which lawyers you connect best. Your ultimate choice should
be a lawyer well able to represent your interests, who you feel will keep
you informed, keep things in understandable terms, and will deliver results.
Perhaps the greatest benefit to utilizing our firm is that we do a tremendous
amount of screening for you, considering the facts of your case and your
preferences before connecting you with the lawyer we feel will give you
the best result and experience.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
Although it's not the most frequently asked question, it's usually
a burning one for the clients asking. That's partly because it's
nearly impossible to assess case value at the outset of the matter. To
start, understand that your damages will depend largely on the length
and extent of treatment, which are generally only beginning at the outset
of the case. Next, facts often come to light in the middle of handling
a claim that shift the potential recovery significantly. Further, sometimes
medical treatment is vastly different from that which was anticipated
at the outset of the case. The relevant facts develop throughout the case
and, because setting the client's expectations high is a recipe for
failure later, lawyers generally avoid the question. The best answer is
an explanation of the foregoing while asking clients to focus on medical recovery.
How long will my personal injury case take?
This depends greatly on the time your medical recovery takes. If you are
fully recovered next week, then we'll likely request your medical
records and send a demand in the next month. If you continue with medical
treatment for years, we will need to track the case and delay settlement
negotiation until we have a better sense of your ultimate recovery. That
said, the average time period for a smaller case would be resolution in
6 months to a year. Cases with more significant injuries, longer recoveries,
and/or more complex legal issues will likely take 1-5 years.
Will my case go to trial?
It's unlikely but possible. In every case, we treat it as if it's
going to go to trial. That way, we are ready when it's necessary and
we're as prepared as possible through the claims process. The possibility
of ultimately going to trial is remote but possible.
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers almost always work in a contingency basis. That
is, the client does not pay anything out of pocket and, instead, the attorney
receives a percentage of the recovery. At our firm, as is customary in
our legal community, the attorney receives one-third of the recover pre-litigation
and forty percent if it is necessary to file a litigation.
What is my role in resolving a personal injury matter?
Your role is to get better. You're injured and you need to do your
best to reach a full medical recovery. That's important to your general
satisfaction in life and it's important to your case. Address your
medical issues and do as your medical providers direct. Next, you need
to do what you can to communicate any medial restrictions to your employer
and/or school. Those to whom you owe a physical responsibility must be
put on notice as to any new physical limitations or restrictions. Next,
hire the right personal injury lawyer and cooperate and communicate with
him or her. Accessibility and an open flow of information are necessary
to maximize results. Do your part and you'll fair better in the end.
