Have you been involved in an auto accident? How about a slip and fall? If you are looking to recover damages related to injuries caused by the negligence of another party, you likely have a personal injury lawsuit.
Those without any knowledge of the law may believe that everything is relatively simple to understand. Of course, this is not the case. There are many details that only your attorney will be aware of.
For example, did you know that Massachusetts is a compulsory insurance state? This means that anybody who wants to register a vehicle in the state must purchase minimum insurance coverage in four areas:
- Medical bills for somebody you may hit in your vehicle
- Medicals bills to you or anybody in your vehicle
- Property damage to property or another driver’s vehicle
- Damage caused by an uninsured vehicle
Sometimes, insurance companies get in the way during a personal injury case. This is something for your lawyer to handle.
If you have been involved in an accident (such as in your vehicle) in which you were injured, contact a Massachusetts personal injury attorney to discuss your rights as well as how the law pertains to your situation. You may be surprised at everything you learn as well as the next steps that need to be taken.
