Working with Insurance Companies
Many people are not aware of their rights when they are injured. We can coordinate benefits between the appropriate insurance companies, including: homeowners, life, auto, workers’ compensation, health insurers, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Medical Payments (MedPay) coverage.
We will make sure that your medical bills get submitted to the appropriate insurance companies in an effort to have them processed accordingly. Our lawyers know how to get insurance companies to pay the bills in a timely manner. If you or a family member suffered a serious injury or wrongful death, we will seek compensation for long-term care and loss of income.
Receiving Medical Care
When you are injured, it is important to receive the right medical care. Our Boston personal injury lawyers will fight for the medical care you need, whether it is ongoing treatment such as physical therapy or care from a specialist. When the insurance company says it will not pay for or authorize more medical care, we will enforce your rights, even if it means going to court to get approval.
Because personal injury cases deal with medical issues, we work closely with doctors to determine the specifics of each injury. This helps to ensure that you receive the appropriate compensation and medical care.
Time Frame for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Personal injury victims in Boston need to be aware that there is a limited amount of time for them to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. The Massachusetts personal injury statute of limitations is three years from the date an injury occurs. This means that an injury victim has a three-year window in which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party. Failing to file a lawsuit within this time frame will mean that the victim will likely not recover any compensation for their losses.
However, this statute of limitations applies only to personal injury lawsuits that go to civil court. If your injury claim involves an insurance carrier, please be aware that the deadlines for these claims are usually much shorter. Insurance carriers have strict reporting deadlines, and any delay in filing an insurance claim could result in a denial of the claim.
