Why shouldn’t I just let my insurance company represent me in my auto accident case?

Your insurance company is a business focused on maximizing profits. Your agent may settle your case quickly if it is in the company’s best interest to do so, regardless of if it is also in your best interest.

Should I sign the release from my auto insurance company?

Your insurance company typically asks you to sign a release as part of your settlement. By signing the document, you permanently may waive your rights to pursue further damages. Before signing anything, have a Taunton accident lawyer review your settlement offer to ensure that you are paid the amount of damages you deserve for your injuries.

Can I recover compensation if I were hit by an uninsured driver?

You can file a claim with your Massachusetts personal injury protection (PIP) policy if you are hit by an underinsured or uninsured driver or if you are the victim of a hit and run accident. In addition, you may have a valid third-party claim against individuals, companies or municipalities that contributed to your accident.

What types of damages can I recover for my injuries?

You may be entitled to damages to cover medical bills, anticipated costs of medical treatments, lost wages, diminished future earning capacity, disability, disfigurement, and pain and suffering.

Do I need to contact a lawyer immediately after my accident?

Massachusetts personal injury lawsuits are subject to a strict statute of limitations. This means that you permanently may forfeit your rights to recover damages if you do not file your claim by the deadline. In addition, your attorneys’ immediate investigation of the case will help them to preserve crucial evidence and build a stronger case.

What if I do not have enough money to pay an attorney to help me with my personal injury claim?

Our Plymouth personal injury lawyers at the Studley Law Offices handle your case on contingency. This means that we do not charge you for attorneys’ fees until we recover compensation in your case.
