Do I Have a Case? Jimmy Knows™!

There are many types of personal injury claims, each with its own set of unique circumstances, which may make it difficult for you to know if you have a case worth pursuing. Jimmy Knows™ how to help! Let’s look at some of the circumstances our Boston personal injury lawyers will review in order to determine your next best steps.

These are some of the types of personal injury cases our team handles for injured individuals and their families:

Are You Within the Legal Timeframe to Seek Compensation?

Each state enforces a timeframe in which individuals are legally allowed to seek compensation through a lawsuit. This is called a statute of limitations. In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations is usually three years from the date of the accident. In some cases, such as with an injury that was determined later, the statute of limitations begins from the “discovery date,” meaning the date that the injury was found.
If the injury claim is against the city, county, or state government, you have two years to file a formal claim and three years to file a lawsuit. Jimmy and his team can help you evaluate your case and its circumstances and determine whether you are still eligible to seek compensation for your losses.

What Losses Can Be Recovered?

A personal injury settlement usually covers what was lost because of an injury. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to recover losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and more. Let’s look at some of the losses you may be able to recover through a personal injury lawsuit.

The most common loss sought in a personal injury case includes related medical expenses, including medical procedures, medication, therapy, and ongoing treatment.

If the injury affected your ability to work, whether temporarily or permanently, you may be entitled to compensation for lost income.

Other losses that you may seek in your claim can include emotional distress as a result of the accident, loss of enjoyment of hobbies or recreational activities, loss of companionship with your spouse, and associated pain and discomfort from the injury.

What if you were partly responsible for your accident? Jimmy Knows™! In Massachusetts, laws called contributory negligence may reduce your compensation if you’re found to be partially at fault for your injuries. This is why it’s so important to let Jimmy and our team review your case and fight for the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?

Fighting for your personal injury claim can be difficult and stressful. Hiring a Boston personal injury lawyer gives you the best possibility of receiving fair compensation for your injury and associated losses.

With so much at stake, you’ll want a fierce advocate like Jimmy by your side.

What Comes Next?

Contact us to have an in-person or online consultation about your case. You don’t even have to leave your couch!

Your lawyer will compile all the necessary documents, bills, witness statements, and evidence to build the strongest case possible for your compensation.

Your lawyer will aggressively negotiate on your behalf for the full settlement amount to which you are entitled.

While it is rare for a personal injury case to go to court, sometimes negotiations fail to produce a fair settlement offer and a case has to be brought before a jury to seek full compensation. If your case has to go to court, your lawyer will prepare your case and fiercely represent you and your rights.

Once a fair settlement amount has been offered, we will reach out to you to discuss your options. If you accept the offer, we will get your check to you as soon as possible.

Dealing With Insurance Companies After an Accident

In the aftermath of an accident, one of the most difficult issues to deal with is fielding phone calls from the other party’s insurance company. While they may sound friendly at first, it’s important to remember that insurance companies aren’t your friend.

While insurance companies can cover your losses after an accident, many try to pay as little as they can get away with and even try to escape liability altogether. Remember, they make money by paying people less than they deserve. Dealing with insurance companies is one of the biggest reasons to put an experienced Boston personal injury lawyer on your side after an accident that wasn’t your fault.

An attorney can handle conversations with the other party’s insurance company and ensure you’re being treated fairly, all while you focus on recovering from your injuries.

Personal Injury FAQs

Every case is different and the amount of time it takes to settle largely depends on how long your recovery takes. This is because it’s the only way to properly gauge the value of your medical bills and how much you should demand from the insurance company. However, there are many other factors that can affect the length of time it takes to resolve your case.

You can always pursue your case on your own, but hiring an experienced Boston personal injury lawyer is the best way to ensure you’re taking the right steps after your accident and will give you the best chance of recovering the full amount of compensation you deserve. Plus, an attorney can make the legal process much easier for you and your family.

It’s never wise to give a statement to the insurance company without consulting your personal injury attorney first. You could unknowingly say something that could later hurt your case.

In the state of Massachusetts, you have up to three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. This time limit is known as the statute of limitations. The three-year statute of limitations is important to keep in mind because if you wait too long to take legal action and miss the deadline, you could forever lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries.

When you work with Jim Glaser Law, you never have to worry about being able to afford a lawyer. We strongly believe that everyone should have access to quality legal representation after being hurt in an accident that wasn’t their fault. That’s why our office is proud to work on a contingency-fee basis. You’ll never owe us anything unless a successful outcome is reached for your case!

For the most part, personal injury cases are settled through negotiation and not in court. This is because going to court isn’t usually in anyone’s best interests. It’s expensive, time-consuming, and tends to be an “everything-or-nothing” type of affair. Negotiation allows us to come to an acceptable settlement for everyone involved. Sometimes, however, we come to a point where we just can’t negotiate further, and then court is necessary. If that happens, we’ll still fight for your justice.

Doing things right at the accident scene is important. Always try to keep a clear head about you, and never use the words “I’m sorry,” or apologize for anything. Get medical attention right away; this shows that from the beginning, you took what was happening seriously, and it might reveal injuries that you didn’t know you had yet. Take detailed photos of the accident scene if you can, and take notes about what happened, even drawing diagrams. The more information you can gather, and the more you’re able to stay calm, the more you will help your Boston personal injury lawyer build a case for you later.

Negligence is a key factor in every personal injury case. It is a legal term that defines the recklessness, carelessness, and responsibility of the person at fault in an incident resulting in someone else’s loss or injury. We will need to prove three things in order to maintain the other person in your accident was negligent in their actions and therefore liable for your losses. First, we need to show that they were acting so irresponsibly that it goes against the way any reasonable person would have behaved. This is also sometimes phrased as “violating a duty of care toward others.” We all have a responsibility to act in such a way as to not put others in danger. Second, we need to show that their irresponsible actions led to the accident. Finally, we have to demonstrate that you got hurt as a direct result of the accident.

Comparative fault is a system Massachusetts has in place that dictates your settlement to be reduced by the percentage of fault you hold. So, if you’re 10% at fault, you will get 90% of the value, meaning, if your case is valued at $100,000, you’d only be able to receive a maximum compensation of $90,000. Further, if you’re found to be more than 50% at fault in Massachusetts, you can’t get anything at all. That’s why you need a personal injury lawyer in your corner. We can help you seek the maximum settlement amount by building a strong case that proves you were not at fault for the accident.

Many people make mistakes like apologizing at the scene of an accident or accepting a lowball offer from the insurance adjuster because they were bullied into it or because they think they can sue for more later. Such mistakes can hurt your case, but they may not be the end. Sometimes, with the right help, arguments can be made to help you overcome these mistakes and get the compensation you deserve.
