Personal Injury Attorney in Franklin, Massachusetts

If you are experiencing high medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, or emotional suffering due to an accident, do not face the claims process alone. At the Law Office of James F. White, we will work with you and take the stress out of dealing with insurance companies so that you can spend more time focusing on recovering.

What Exactly Is Personal Injury? 

You can file a personal injury claim against someone if you have suffered an injury due to their wrongdoing or negligence. The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to help you get the compensation you need to pay for medical bills or make up for lost wages from being unable to go to work due to injuries. The at-fault party’s insurance company is typically responsible for paying your settlement, but they don’t have your best interests in mind. 

At the Law Office of James F. White, we actually have your best interests in mind. While an insurance company might want to offer quick settlements after an accident and not pay you what your accident is really worth, our experienced legal team will seek the proper compensation on your behalf. You deserve more than what the insurance companies have to offer.

If you are unsure whether you have a case or you are unable to come to our office to discuss the details of your accident, we will come to you. We are ready to take on your case and help you get the compensation you deserve after being involved in a:

What Can You Recover From Personal Injury in Franklin, Massachusetts?

Every case is different, and the value of your case depends on the factors involved in causing the accident or injury. Compensation comes in the form of damages, which will provide financial and non-monetary benefits. For example: 

  • Economic Damage: These damages include medical expenses, lost income, future medical bills, lost wages, and anything else that is being affected due to your inability to work or participate in work-related activities. 
  • Physical and Emotional Damage: This can include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent or temporary disability, disfigurement, or loss of benefits due to your injury.

Personal Injury FAQ

If you have suffered an injury due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, a personal injury attorney can be invaluable in helping you seek compensation. At the Law Office of James F. White, we will handle communications with insurance companies and aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve. This allows you to focus on recovering from your injuries while we take on the stress of building your case. With extensive experience handling personal injury claims, we know how to maximize your settlement and ensure you are fairly compensated.

How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In Massachusetts?

In Massachusetts, you generally have three years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, it is important to contact an attorney immediately after an accident, as building a strong case takes time. The sooner we can start gathering evidence and documenting details, the better positioned you will be to receive full and fair compensation. Do not leave money on the table or risk having your claim denied simply because too much time has passed. Call the Law Office of James F. White today to better understand your legal options.

What Should I Do After An Accident or Injury in MA?

Your health and safety should always come first after an accident. Seek any necessary medical treatment right away. Following this:

  • Document the scene with photos and take down the names of witnesses.
  • Save medical records and expenses.
  • Avoid discussing blame or fault.
  • Contact the Law Office of James F. White for a free case review.

What Is The Process After I Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

The process typically begins with an in-depth interview where we will gather all pertinent details about your accident, injuries, and losses. From there, we start an immediate investigation by collecting police reports, visiting the accident scene, interviewing witnesses, consulting with medical experts, researching past cases, and fully evaluating all angles of your potential claim.

As this is happening, we will negotiate with insurance providers, using proven techniques to maximize settlement offers. We handle all communications, paperwork, and legal filings on your behalf while keeping you updated on progress. If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, we won't hesitate to take the case to court if needed to get you the compensation you deserve. 

What Common Mistakes Should I Avoid After An Accident?

It's understandable to feel overwhelmed after being injured in an accident. However, certain actions could negatively impact your ability to receive compensation down the road. Common mistakes we recommend avoiding include:

  • Failing to seek immediate medical treatment. Without documentation, insurers may claim injuries are fabricated or pre-existing.
  • Neglecting to get contact information from witnesses on site. Eyewitness statements are incredibly valuable evidence.
  • Apologizing or admitting fault, even casually. Insurers can use this against you during negotiations.
  • Delaying discussions with an attorney. Personal injury law sets strict statutes of limitations.
  • Accepting an early settlement offer from an insurer. This is likely to be significantly less than case value.
  • Trying a "DIY" claim without experienced legal help. Proven negotiation tactics make a big difference.
