From the Sox to the Pops, we love Boston. However, one thing we don’t love is driving on Cambridge Ave. or Brighton Ave most anytime, day-or-night. Can you blame us? After all, Allstate ranked Boston 199th out of 200 in its most recent annual survey of driving safety in cities across America. That’s no surprise to anyone who’s driven in-and-around Allston. Car accidents happen on these streets all the time, and some of them are deadly.

Kelly & Associates is a Boston-area law firm for victims of car accidents and the families of those who have lost loved ones to them. From our offices in the North End, we aim to help our clients overcome the extreme physical, emotional, and financial toll car accidents can take, especially the unexpected costs of medical bills, lost time at work, and all of the other necessities for getting life back on track.

If you have suffered injuries in a car accident in a Boston neighborhood like Allston, or you lost a loved one to a tragic accident, we may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve. Call Kelly & Associates today to schedule a free consultation.

Advocates For Boston Neighborhood Car Accident Victims

Like its next-door neighbor Brighton, Allston – with its proximity to BU, Harvard, and the hospitals, is a place many students, recent grads, and young professionals and families call home. It’s a place with lots of pedestrian and bicycle traffic, which also makes it the neighborhood with some of the highest rates of car-on-bike collisions in Boston. Brighton/Allston is also, unfortunately, known as a spot where hit-and-run accidents are common. Accidents here cause serious injuries and fatalities.

Like many Allston dwellers, Attorney Michael Kelly is a young professional, too. He knows what it is like to worry about safety while exercising on crowded city streets, and that’s why he devotes his legal practice to victims of Boston neighborhood accidents. Attorney Kelly was a student here too. An honors graduate of New England Law School and member of its law review, he now makes client services his mission. He meets with all of his clients one-on-one, is on call 24/7, and offers clients a rare, 30-day satisfaction guarantee on his services to earn their trust.

A Focus on Car Accidents, Especially Involving Bikes and Pedestrians

At Kelly & Associates, we represent clients of all manner of car accidents, including:

We have a particular focus on helping residents of and visitors to Boston’s student-heavy neighborhoods like Allston who have been injured in pedestrian or cycling accidents. We know the fear of being stuck in a crosswalk or “doored” by a careless driver. When clients come to us, we take time to understand not just the facts and circumstances of their accident, but also how their lives have changed because of it, and what their goals, hopes, and needs are for recovery.

Diligent, Client-Focused Legal Representation

Kelly & Associates’ clients come to us at one of the most difficult times of their lives, nursing severe injuries or grieving the loss of a cherished loved one. Our mission as a firm is to help them recover financially so that they can also recover physically and emotionally. As a full-service car accident law firm, we routinely:

  • Investigate Accidents – We are not one of those firms that are willing to leave accident investigation to law enforcement and insurance companies. We do our own work. Our team regularly visits accident scenes with cameras and tape measures in hand, we track down witnesses to hear their perspective, and we work with law enforcement. And, of course, we listen carefully to our clients, visiting with them wherever is most convenient, even if that means at home or in their hospital room.
  • Prepare Solid Cases – Having done our due diligence, we compile the facts into compelling cases against those whose negligence or wrongful conduct harmed our clients, and we plot a course that will give our clients the best chance of holding those parties accountable.
  • Negotiate Settlements – Because of the strength of the work we do, parties and their insurers often seek to negotiate a settlement of our clients’ claims. We are more than willing and prepared to engage in those negotiations when they suit our clients’ interests and lead to our clients recovering appropriate and fair compensation.
  • Go to Trial – Not all settlement negotiations lead to a resolution right away, however. And so, we also take our clients’ cases to court when it’s called for, presenting compelling factual and legal arguments to judges and juries.

Tips for Accident Victims

Many of our would-be clients wonder what they might be able to do protect their rights to compensation for injuries or losses caused by someone else’s wrongful conduct. Here is a list of tips we compiled. They include:

  • Always Seeking Prompt Medical Care. The best client is a client who is as healthy as possible under the circumstances. Our clients’ medical records also frequently serve as compelling evidence of the strength of their claims.
  • Always Keeping Good Records. When clients keep good records of what an accident has cost them in expenses and lost wages, it makes a lawyer’s job of proving their claims and damages far easier, whether in a negotiation or in front of a jury.
  • Always Obtaining a Copy of the Accident Report. Boston residents can obtain a copy of an accident report at this Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles website, or from the Boston Police Department.
  • Never Talking to the Insurance Adjuster. It’s not uncommon for insurance adjusters to try and take advantage of our clients’ vulnerability by offering a quick settlement of claims. Letting a lawyer handle that discussion with the insurance company instead often serves accident victims interests by protecting their rights and avoiding pitfalls.
  • Always Staying Off Social Media. Younger Bostonians, in particular, spend lots of time on social media. Unfortunately, after a car accident, so do insurance adjusters and opposing attorneys hunting for any evidence to discredit the accident victim.
