What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury is an umbrella term for injuries caused by another individual’s negligence or carelessness. A personal injury claim is a civil lawsuit where a victim seeks compensation for the costs and damages that resulted from the accident.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another person, a personal injury claim can seek compensation for your
- Medical expenses, including emergency transportation, emergency room costs, hospitalization, diagnostic testing, surgery, doctors’ visits, prescription medication, medical equipment, specialized nursing care, rehabilitative costs, and other costs associated with the treatment of your injuries
- Lost wages
- Personal property damage
- Future potential medical expenses as they may be related to your injuries
- Loss of earning capacity if you cannot return to your job
- Non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and emotional trauma
- Wrongful death in the case of a fatality
At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our team of Rehoboth, MA personal injury attorneys take the helm so you can focus on recovering from your injuries. We do this by preparing and filing your claim, fully investigating the accident, and then negotiating with insurance on your behalf. If a fair settlement can’t be negotiated, we will take your claim to court to ensure your best possible outcome.
How a Personal Injury Attorney Helps an Accident Victim
In pursuing any personal injury claim, the victim needs to provide proof of certain things to recover compensation for their injuries. This includes
- The cause of the accident and injuries
- That the injuries were accident-related
- Who was at fault for the accident
- The extent of the injuries
- The physical and financial effect of those injuries
If these cannot be proven, the victim may be denied compensation for their injuries.
Proving a claim will require a medical diagnosis, ongoing documentation of treatment, bills, and other receipts, and a full investigation of the accident. At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our Rehoboth, MA personal injury attorneys have the resources to do all of this and more, often employing the use of medical experts and accident recreation professionals to paint a complete picture of the accident and injuries in support of your claim.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents in and around Rehoboth happen on a regular basis. While some accidents are relatively minor, leaving equally minor injuries, some are catastrophic and leave the victim with injuries that can be life-altering.
Even minor injuries can have long-term consequences. If you have been injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident caused by another reckless or negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our Rehoboth car accident attorneys provide diligent legal representation, ensuring our clients’ best outcome.
Property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe for those who use them. And while “slip and fall” accidents sound minor and simplistic, they can be serious and extremely complicated.
If you have been injured on another’s property, whether the accident occured on private, commercial, public, or municipal property, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent owner. The skilled Rehoboth premises liability attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP will pursue a premises liability claim to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to.
There is little more devastating than losing a loved one because of the negligence of another party. These fatalities can be caused by car accidents, nursing home negligence, a defective product, premises liability, malpractice, or even an intentional act.
A wrongful death can result in serious emotional and financial consequences for a family. If a fatality is caused by the negligent or intentional action of another, a wrongful death lawsuit can be initiated by surviving family members who may be entitled to compensation for their own damages and those of their deceased loved one.
The experienced Rehoboth, MA wrongful death attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP have represented many families in wrongful death claims in Massachusetts, holding the negligent, at-fault parties accountable for the harm they have done.

In Massachusetts, our no-fault insurance laws require registered drivers to have a minimum of $8,000 in personal injury protection coverage.
PIP coverage in Massachusetts is designed to pay up to the policy limits for medical costs and lost wages after an accident, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Unfortunately, PIP benefits can sometimes be difficult to collect, for both policyholders and their healthcare providers. Insurers often undervalue claims and deny coverage, leaving policyholders to fight for their fair and legitimate benefits.
At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our Rehoboth PIP insurance attorneys can help individuals get the benefits they deserve after an accident and ensure that their healthcare providers get fairly paid for their services.
Auto Glass Claims
In Massachusetts, car insurance companies are required to offer windshield repair or replacement to any policyholders with comprehensive coverage, with or without a deductible. Furthermore, there are many nuances regarding whether a windshield must be replaced or repaired and whether a replacement must be completed using Original Equipment Manufactured glass.
Both policyholders and glass repair shops have had a notoriously difficult time getting fairly paid for these types of repairs by insurance companies. Because the industry strives to mitigate their financial exposure, they often dispute or deny claims altogether. If you are a policyholder or a repair shop that cannot get fairly paid for a windshield repair claim, the Rehoboth auto glass claims attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP can act on your behalf to get the claim settled fairly.
Property Damage Claims
Sustaining serious damage to your home or business is exactly why you have insurance. And yet, you may find yourself fighting with that insurance company to get the benefits you are legally entitled to after a property damage claim.
Fortunately, there are laws in place to protect against this type of bad faith behavior by an insurance company. When an insurance company unfairly denies or undervalues a property damage claim, you may have recourse through skilled negotiation or a lawsuit.
If you believe that your insurance company is not treating you fairly regarding a property damage claim, the Rehoboth property insurance claim attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP can intercede on your behalf to ensure that your claim is processed fairly and you are adequately compensated for your losses.
Defective Products/Mass Tort
Consumers have the right to expect that the products they use each day are safe and will not cause them harm. But hundreds of unsafe and defective products still make their way into the marketplace every year, from children’s products to medical devices to car parts.
If you have been injured by an unsafe product, you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable through a product liability claim. We can file an individual complaint against the at-fault party or a mass tort action if many others have sustained damages because of that product. At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our team of Rehoboth, MA defective products attorneys can help.
Ensuring that your assets are protected and that your wishes are carried out regarding healthcare and the disposition of your estate are only some of the important matters that are addressed in a comprehensive estate plan. While having a will is fundamental, estate planning goes much further to protect you in matters of incapacity or the financial provision for your loved ones after your death.
At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our experienced Rehoboth estate planning attorneys help our clients look toward the future while protecting their assets and their legacy. While no one is ever prepared for some of the surprises that life throws at us, having a comprehensive estate plan in place will provide valuable protections while you are able to make these important decisions for yourself.
Many insurance policyholders are unaware of what they are covered for in the way of a disaster – until it’s too late. On top of that, large insurance companies take advantage of policyholders’ lack of knowledge and understanding when it comes to paying claims after a natural disaster. Even when policyholders understand their coverage, the insurance company can dispute or deny the claim, using many questionable tactics.
Policyholders can find themselves desperate after an emergency, often willing to take whatever the insurance company is willing to throw their way. It is only after the dust settles that they realize that they have put their legal rights in jeopardy.
If your claim is being disputed or has been outright denied, you may have serious legal recourse. Contact the Rehoboth disaster recovery attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP. We have helped thousands of victims get fairly compensated for their damages after a natural disaster.
