My husband was involved in a car accident.

Additional Information:

We are being sued for more than we have on our insurance policy. Can we protect our home in a personal injury lawsuit?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

Yes. If you do have not already filed a Declaration of Homestead for your real estate, you should do so immediately. Usually it is filed by the spouse who earns the most money.

Is there a statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim?

Additional  Information:

I was injured pretty seriously in a car accident on a residential street in Massachusetts. I’ve read an article on selecting a lawyer, but I am feeling rushed and confused. I’ve been contacted by someone who I think represents an attorney. She said I should hire an attorney fast. Anyway, what’s the statute on limitations to file a personal injury claim?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

The Statute of Limitations for a personal injury claim is three (3) years from the date of the accident. Just like any other service provider you use, you should interview any attorney you are deciding to hire to make sure that you feel comfortable working with that attorney and that he/she will provide you with the services that you are looking for in addition to be responsive to any questions you may have.
