MA personal injury case & accident info
Massachusetts is a gorgeous state that also has its fair share of aggressive drivers, which leads to car accidents, negligence cases, and personal injuries — maybe for you, maybe for a friend or family member.
You might not even know where to pin liability. Whatever happened, if you need guidance for your personal injury case, Enjuris has the answers.

Massachusetts's car accident statutes of limitation
In Massachusetts, you have three years to bring both personal injury and property damage claims. That means you have three years to file your paperwork with the court, not that your case has to be completed in that time frame.

Hiring a lawyer in Massachusetts
The first meeting with a personal injury attorney is normally free. (Note that other legal specialties, such as taxation law or real estate law, are different.) After that, lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that they will take a third of the eventual reward or settlement, plus whatever office expenses they incurred.
If your case ends up going to trial, the percentage could rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment. These numbers aren't determined by law, so don't be surprised if your lawyer suggests something else.
