I was injured pretty seriously in a auto accident on a residential street in Boston. I’ve read an article on selecting a lawyer, but I’m feeling overwhelmed and confused. Also, I was contacted by someone who I think represents an attorney. She said I should hire a personal injury lawyer quickly. What should I know before hiring someone and what’s the statute on limitations to file a personal injury claim in MA?
Selecting a lawyer can be an overwhelming and confusing process since there are many lawyers competing for your business. The statute of limitations on a personal injury claim in Massachusetts is three years from the date of the injury. While it is important that you hire an attorney as soon as practical so that they can advise you on your rights and help you navigate the often confusing insurance claims process, there is time to make an informed decision on which attorney you wish to hire. You should hire an attorney that you are comfortable with as you will be forming a personal, lasting relationship with them and relying on them for their advise and expertise. An experienced attorney will be happy to speak with you to help you make this decision.
