Our clients love us
I've done so much research after I had my accident, and from the first meeting with David Bograd and his staff I was so pleased with my experience. They treated me so good, and everyone was very professional. They made me feel confident that I chose the best representation for my case.
David Bograd and his team are truly professional and deliver results. The day my auto accident occurred (not my fault), my whole life was upside down. The other party was trying to downplay my pain, and the damage they had caused to my life... read full review on google
A+ Service and so accommodating. David and his team got me a sizable settlement for my car accident. They made it a stress free and enjoyable process. 100% recommend
Great team and great services from beginning to end. Highly recommended David S. Bograd to everyone
I was seriously injured in an accident. Who will pay my medical bills?
Massachusetts is a no-fault insurance state. Although that means your insurance will help you recover some of your expenses, it limits your ability to recover from the person who caused the accident.

All Massachusetts drivers must carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) as part of their insurance. PIP coverage provides the first $2,000 of medical bills and a minimum of $8,000 per person for lost wages, replacement services, and death benefits. Private health insurance pays the remaining medical expenses. PIP will cover medical bills ranging from $2,000 to $8,000 for people without health insurance coverage.

However, if your injuries are severe, you may be able to sue the person whose negligence caused your injuries. If your medical expenses exceed $2,000, or if you suffer loss of sight or hearing, permanent disfigurement, a fracture, or if a loved one dies as a result of the accident, you can sue the other driver.
I was not injured right away, but some time has passed and now I think I might be suffering from an injury related to accident, medical procedure, or encounter with a defective product.
What should I do?
Accident-related injuries are sometimes not immediately noticeable. Massachusetts law recognizes that not all injuries are immediately apparent, and the law generally provides that you have three full years after an accident, medical procedure, or encounter with a defective product to file a personal injury lawsuit, subject to some exceptions and limitations.

If you are feeling discomfort after an accident or medical procedure, or if you think you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, you should seek medical treatment immediately and document the nature of your injury. You should also notify your health insurance, and if your injury resulted from a car accident, you should also notify your car insurance.
What types of evidence can help with my car accident claim?
Every car crash case is won or lost based on how convincing the evidence is. The better the evidence, the more money you are likely to get. Obtaining sufficient evidence involves speaking with witnesses, reviewing police reports, and making a thorough study of the accident scene. A qualified car accident attorney works with your treating doctors and independent physicians, if you are injured, to properly document your medical treatments, physical pain, and emotional suffering to make a case for just compensation.
Why should you see a doctor and lawyer immediately?
Delay can hurt your case legally. If you wait to see a doctor, the insurance company and defense counselors will argue that you're faking or a malingerer. They'll say that if you were really hurt, you would have seen a doctor immediately. Don't give the defense an advantage. It's good medical and legal practice to see your family doctor or go to the ER after any type of accident – even if you're feeling fine.
Car accident attorneys and contingency fees?
The first thing you need to know is, most car accident attorneys work on contingency. That means that their payment is contingent, or dependent, on you winning your case. Our firm works entirely on contingency, so there are no up-front costs to our clients. Furthermore, if we don't win, we don't get paid: period.
So, how does that work?
It's simple. Once you hire us, we will review your medical records, deal with your insurance company, get all the paperwork together, and so forth. Based on the work we do, you'll decide whether you want to settle with your insurance company (usually for a much more appropriate amount than what you would've been offered on your own) or go to trial.

Then, once the settlement has been accepted or the trial has been won, your attorney will take a percentage of your final award for his or her fee.
How are contingency fees calculated in a car wreck case?
When you hire a car accident attorney, you don't pay any fees up-front. Instead, your lawyer will charge you a certain percentage of your award – usually 33% to 45% – after the case is over. Most attorneys charge about 33%, on average.
