We are Boston Personal Injury Lawyers
We are leading Boston personal injury lawyers, working every day to bring justice to our clients across Massachusetts who have been injured due to the negligence of another. It's not just a job for us, and it's not just about the money. For us, it's about getting you what you deserve. 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, 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. If you want the best recovery, get an experienced legal team that's successfully recovered in cases just like yours.
We have the resources.
We have experienced personal injury lawyers, 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. At Mass Injury Firm, P.C., we go to trial if that's what will get the best possible recovery for our clients.
Your case is our life.
At Mass Injury Firm, P.C., 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 will have the cell phone number of our principle personal injury lawyer to call as you feel necessary.
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. Read more.
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. There are far fewer who ONLY handle personal injury, as is the case with this firm. 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.
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.
