How Our Massachusetts Personal Injury Attorney Can Build a Strong Case
At GED Lawyers, LLP, we understand that accidents can leave you with unprecedented damages that wreak havoc on your physical and mental health. When you are going through recovery and attending to unexpected obligations, it can be challenging to find the willpower to tackle the legal system.
Our Massachusetts personal injury attorney provides full-scale services covering everything from filing a claim to negotiating for compensation. Your attorney will provide advocacy and representation throughout the process, so you can entirely focus on recovery and attend to other personal matters. Here are some of the services we offer:
Conducting an Investigation
Our lawyers will investigate your case to determine fault, damages, and total value. We will also collect evidence, such as:
- Police reports
- Incident-related photos or video footage
- Medical records
- Employment letter
- Repair bills
- Eyewitness statements
- Bills or receipts of any other accident-related out-of-pocket costs
- Source medical experts when handling medical malpractice claims
All necessary forms and documents will be drafted, filled out, and submitted within Massachusetts’ statute of limitations. We will also keep you updated throughout the process.
Our lawyer will manage communications with all the involved parties in your case. We will send a demand letter to the insurance company detailing your losses and the amount we will seek for them.
Negotiating With the Insurer
Once we calculate a value for your case, we will demand the amount from the at-fault party’s insurance company. This will likely involve a series of negotiations where we will utilize effective strategies to obtain fair compensation for your case.
Representing You in Court
Our primary goal is to secure a favorable settlement out of court. But, if the insurance company will not budge from a lower offer, then we will provide you with representation in court.

You Could Secure Damages Even With Partial Fault for the Accident
Massachusetts follows the “comparative negligence” rule to resolve personal injury cases. Your amount of compensation will reduce directly in proportion to the percent of fault you share for the accident.
For example, if you have suffered $25,000 in damages in the personal injury incident, and the judge holds you 10 percent accountable for the injury, you can only collect $23,000 in damages. If your share of fault is 51 percent or more, you cannot pursue any compensation from the other party.
Understanding the No-Fault Rule in Massachusetts Car Accident Cases
Massachusetts is a no-fault state regarding personal injuries stemming from car accidents. This means you will have to pursue compensation from your own PIP insurance company.
Our attorney can review your case to determine if you qualify to collect compensation from the liable party’s insurance company. If not, we can help file a claim from your own insurance company.
Possibly Recoverable Personal Injury Damages in Massachusetts
Our lawyer will assign a dollar amount to your losses pertinent to your case to tabulate your claim’s total value. You will generally be able to collect the following damages from your claim.
- Past, present, and anticipated medical costs
- Lost income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Disfigurement or dismemberment
- Property damage
In addition to the compensatory damages, the court may award punitive damages in rare cases where the defendant engaged in intentional or extreme harm, for example, drunk driving. Our personal injury attorney will let you know if your case qualifies for punitive damages.

Act Now: Personal Injury Claims Are Bound By Strict Deadlines
Massachusetts residents generally have three years from the date of accident or injury to file a legal action against a defendant, as per Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 260 § 2A. Some exceptional circumstances may change the deadline. Our attorney will be able to explain this further after reviewing your case.
By waiting for the deadline to expire to commence a claim, you will forgo your right to hold the defendant accountable and secure any compensation.
