In this section, you can read through some of the most commonly asked questions regarding personal injury and how a Cape Cod personal injury lawyer can help you!

Can I receive compensation?
If you were injured because of another person's negligence or wrongdoing, there is a good chance that you may be able to seek compensation. An attorney can help determine liability and help estimate how much your case may be worth.

How long will my case last?
While there is no set time that a case can last, most people find that their cases are resolved within six months to one year. Each case is unique though, and an attorney can help determine the time frame of your specific situation.

Will I have to go to court?
Any time that you have a legal concern, that is a chance that your case could go to court. When you work with my firm however, you can work on settling your case outside of court. If your case does go to court, I will aggressively represent you.

Should I speak with an insurance company?
No! Unless you are working with an attorney and they have counseled you on the best course of action to take with the insurance company, it is never encouraged that you speak with them. Insurance companies are only looking out for themselves, not for you.

Who is liable for my injuries?
After an accident, you and your attorney will work to determine who is liable for your injuries. Determining liability can help you file a personal injury lawsuit and be the first step in obtaining the compensation that you deserve.

Should I take a settlement from the insurance company?
Absolutely not. Insurance companies are always looking to settle for less than a case is actually worth. When you work with my firm, I will challenge the insurance company and ensure that you receive the highest amount of recovery possible.

Can I file a lawsuit after a family member's death?
Yes, in Massachusetts you can file a wrongful death claim if you are next of kin. An attorney can help determine your eligibility and file the lawsuit against the liable parties. It is important that you act as soon as possible to make sure that you are within the statute of limitations.

Should I work with an attorney?
Yes! You should never face the Massachusetts legal system alone. It is very important that you retain the representation of an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.
