Personal Injury

When should I contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?

  • I have been injured in some way.
  • My property has been harmed by someone else’s actions.
  • I was in an automobile or construction accident.
  • I believe I have a case against someone for negligence or malpractice.

Why should I hire a Peronal Injury Lawyer?

If you believe that you have been injured and that your injury may be the result of a legal wrong, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you do not file a lawsuit within the time window allowed for your case, referred to as the Statute of Limitations, you may lose your right under the law to do so.

How do I choose a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Because filing a personal injury case is complicated, it is important to hire an attorney who is familiar with the process and has past experience with personal injury law. A good place to start your search is the Boston Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service. We have attorneys on our personal injury panel who have past experience handling personal injury cases. An experienced and qualified personal injury lawyer can review your individual situation and help guide you through the complicated process. Contacting a qualified attorney to review your unique situation can be an important part of your physical, emotional and financial recovery.
