Relatives of the deceased may decide to consult an attorney to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, or wrongful death. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help answer their questions and explore their legal options during the emotional time following the sudden death of their family member.
Additionally, when Massachusetts or New Hampshire residents are injured in a car accident, they often have to work with insurance companies to get a fair settlement for car repairs, lost wages and medical bills as a result of the crash. Attorneys can be beneficial in this process as well and help file the necessary paperwork, sort through crime scene photographs and information detailed in the police reports of the collision and help victims and their families get the compensation they deserve.
