What Personal Injury Attorneys Want You to Know February 7, 2018

What Personal Injury Attorneys Want You to Know, Cambridge, Massachusetts

A personal injury attorney can help you file a claim if you have been hurt due to another person’s negligence. Potential damages awarded as a result of this legal action can cover everything from medical expenses to wages lost because of time off work. Here, the experienced accident attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, PC, in Boston, MA, explain what you need to know about filing this type of claim.

Settlements & Lawsuits

Most personal injury claims resolve out of court. The resulting settlement is usually paid by the at-fault party’s insurance provider. If an agreement cannot be reached, then the injured individual will file a formal lawsuit—though, it must be done within a certain time frame. The statute of limitation varies from one state to the next.  In Massachusetts, the filing deadline, depending on the nature of the accident, is typically three years.  If suit is not filed within a specified time period, the injured party will lose the right to bring the case to court.

Building a Case

Once you file the correct paperwork and the other party has been “served” with the relevant documents, it’s time to create an airtight case. A skilled personal injury attorney will know which pieces of evidence to compile.  An important key to winning is retaining an experienced personal injury lawyer with a proven track record.  For instance, was the other party driving drunk and running a red light, thereby violating their legal duty to operate the vehicle safely?  Or, did the defendant fail to leash their dog—contrary to local regulations—resulting in the animal biting you?
