Getting Personal Representation For Massachusetts Personal Injury Claims

By Attorney Chesley Oriel, Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyer

Hardly a day goes by when we don’t see or hear an ad for a Personal Injury Lawyer. The problem is that many of those ads you see or read are just like a referral service. You call a number and you get referred to whichever Lawyer is next on the list. Doesn’t it make sense that when you have the need for a Lawyer that you want to choose one who will give you personal and responsive service? Who will be able to answer your questions and provide you with answers, when you need them.

We have been handling personal injury claims for over 35 years, and we cover the entire State of Massachusetts.

We make home and hospital visits during the day and in the evening. We will help you recover the damages you or your loved one deserves. We try to explain to our clients how the value of a claim is determined. Some of the factors are: type of injury–permanent, temporary, did it require surgery or hospitalization? amount of medical bills–how much money was spent to help make you better? loss wages–how long have you been out of work due to the injury? future–have you completely recovered from the injury or will there be any permanent and/or long lasting effect on you? scarring–do you have any scars? Is there any disfigurement? These are some of the questions that need to be answered in evavaluating how much a claim is worth.

After an accident, you should never discuss your injury or how the accident happened except with your own insurance company, though it is always best to try and consult with your Lawyer first. Many times insurance companies will tape record your conversation with them, and sometimes it may turn out that you will make what is called an “underinsured claim” against your own insurance company, if you have “underinsured coverage”. What that means is that if you have a claim that has a value of $100,000.00 and the other driver who caused the accident only has an insurance policy for $20,000.00, and if you have “underinsured” coverage on your own policy, then you can make a claim against your own insurance company up to the limit of your policy, which in many cases is at least $100,000.00. It is a fairly reasonable expense to get that additional coverage, so if you don’t already have underinsured coverage, you should call your insurance agent and find out what the cost would be.

We are always available to answer questions about personal injury claims.
