Hiring an Attorney
Costs rise after an accident. Medical bills join the list of your everyday expenses, in addition to rent, food, gas, and insurance. The added stress and expenses are, in short, overwhelming. Meanwhile, how do you add legal fees to your budget while still putting food on the table? The answer is the contingency fee. All our attorneys work for you on a contingency fee basis. Therefore you pay nothing up front when you hire our firm. Subsequently, we take a percentage of the final settlement or judgment if your case goes to trial.
No Fee Unless You Win
Remember that there is no legal fee if we are not successful. Therefore, if you do not get paid, then we do not get paid.
However, Legal costs are separate and can apply to your situation. We invite you to contact a Wellesley personal injury attorney to discuss the process associated further with hiring an attorney to represent you.
What to Do After a Crash
An accident is unsettling, especially with family or friends in the vehicle with you. When an accident occurs, take a few simple steps to protect both you and your loved ones and avoid making a bad situation worse.
Stop. First take a moment and ask yourself if you are hurt, then check on others. In addition, remember that your adrenaline is probably pumping right after a crash. Take a moment and pause, because this is not the ideal time to make the decision. Adrenaline has significant effects on the brain in the moments before and after a collision. If you think someone is hurt, then call an ambulance. Head and neck injuries can take days or weeks to show. A trip to the emergency room will help take care of the obvious and non-obvious injuries which can later become significantly worse if untreated.
Call the Police
An accident is stressful for everyone involved, however police and medical personnel know how to help. Police will question those involved and investigate the scene. Remember to ask that they write a report of the crash. Always be polite and courteous during this process. Certainly provide officers with required information but do not make any statement of fault. Your should not talk directly with anyone else involved in the crash, but pay close attention to what others say.
Report the Crash
Importantly, Massachusetts law requires you to report the crash to the Registry of Motor Vehicles in many cases. Police may investigate the scene, but you still must report afterwards to the Commonwealth. You must report an accident if someone was injured or killed. Likewise, you also must report an accident involving over $1,000 in damage to a vehicle or other property. This report is different from the police report, and you have 5 days after the accident to file. You must take this step, even if police responded to the scene.
Speak with a Wellesley personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. We listen to you first to understand what happened. We can then explain your rights and obligations. This includes each party's insurance, and reporting with the State. You do not have to give a statement to someone else's insurance company after a crash. You should talk to your own insurer, but first you need to educate yourself on your rights. Remember that insurance companies make their money by collecting premiums and minimizing payouts. Protect yourself at the beginning by discussing your case with a Wellesley, MA injury attorney first.
