We Offer Free Consultations
When you retain our services, we will immediately protect your legal rights under Massachusetts law, whether it involves a personal injury claim or benefits under workers’ compensation or Social Security. We offer legal support to persons alleging harm, either physically or emotionally, due to the carelessness or malpractice of another individual, corporation, government organization, or any other establishment.
We will ensure that you gain access to proper ongoing medical care and we will take on the burden of dealing with insurance companies that may work to deny or reduce the compensation to which you are entitled.
The primary role of our team is to determine the legal fault of the party responsible for your injury. Through a thorough investigation, we know how to pull together the information required to determine the full extent of your current and future medical expenses, lost income, disability, and other damages related to your injuries. Our priority is to ensure that what you are offered through settlements fully compensates you for your injuries.
When we establish liability, we know how to work to negotiate a fair settlement with the defendant or their insurance company. If fair and just settlements cannot be negotiated, we will aggressively present your case, cross-examine witnesses, and make arguments to the judge and jury. We are ready to fight on your behalf at trial for what is necessary to pay your bills, recover from your injuries, and compensate you for what you have suffered.
Our job involves a lot of research, negotiation, and advocacy to ensure that your rights are protected and that we obtain the best possible outcome for your injury claim.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Massachusetts?
According to the Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 260 section 2A, Massachusetts gives claimants three years to file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations runs out. Set by each state individually, the statute of limitations is a law which limits how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim before they lose their legal right to. Specifically, this means you have three years from the date your injury occurred to file a claim, or you will almost certainly lose your right to file along with your right to pursue compensation, no matter how severe your injuries are.
Exceptions to the Statute of Limitations
It’s important to note that there are exceptions to this three year time limit which can change the time you have to file.
The most notable of which include:
- If the injury victim was a minor at the time of the accident or has been deemed legally incapacitated, such as a mental illness
- If the alleged negligent party leaves the state before a lawsuit can be filed
- If the alleged negligent party intentionally conceals their identity in order to avoid a lawsuit
The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to an experienced attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as possible.
