Don’t get us wrong; we love Boston. However, driving in Boston can be unsafe.  Allstate ranked Boston 199th out of 200 in its annual survey of driving safety in cities across America. Last year we were dead last, but this year we traded places on the list with Baltimore. None of this will come as a surprise to anyone who has driven in the Hub, especially in-and-around Brighton. Car accidents, some of them severe and fatal, happen here all the time.

Kelly & Associates is a Boston law firm that focuses its practice on helping victims of Boston-area car accidents and their families. From our offices in the North End, we work daily to help our clients recover from the physical, emotional, and financial costs of injuries and tragic losses. When medical bills pile up, and income dries up, because of the toll a car accident has taken, we consider it our mission to put things right.

If you have sustained injuries in a car accident in a Boston neighborhood like Brighton, or you lost a loved one to a tragic accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation if you act soon. Call Kelly & Associates today to schedule a free consultation.

A Firm Committed to Helping Car Accident Victims

Boston’s Brighton neighborhood is home to a huge number of students and recent grads. The joke goes that if you went to college in Boston, you’ve probably lived in Brighton (or its sister neighborhood, Allston) at least once in your life. Many Brighton dwellers get around on bikes and on foot. Little wonder, then, that Brighton/Allston also has the unfortunate distinction of being the Boston neighborhood with the most car-on-bike collisions in the city and a place where hit-and-run accidents are common. When these tragedies strike, they can cause victims permanent damage.

Attorney Michael Kelly understands the pain victims of Brighton accidents suffer because he represents Bostonians like them day-in, day-out. An honors graduate of New England Law School, where he served on the law review, Attorney Kelly focuses his practice exclusively on helping victims and families recover from injury and tragedy. He puts client service first, meeting with every client in person, making himself available 24/7, and offering a rare, 30-day satisfaction guarantee on his services to ensure he has earned his clients’ trust.

Car Accidents, Including Those Involving Bikes or Pedestrians

Kelly & Associates represents clients who have sustained injuries or lost loved ones in all manner of motor vehicle accidents, such as:

Having been a student in Boston himself, Attorney Kelly has a particular focus on helping victims of accidents in Boston’s student-heavy neighborhoods like Brighton, particularly those injured in crosswalks, or in collisions involving bikes and cars, such as “doorings” in which a driver or passenger opens a door into the path of a cyclist. Attorney Kelly also understands every accident is different, and he takes care to meet with every client to hear how their lives have changed and what they need the most to help them recover.

Thorough, Compassionate Legal Representation

Clients seeking the services of Kelly & Associates do so at one of the most difficult moments of their lives. They’re in physical, emotional, and (often) financial pain, and need someone to help ease the burden. Our aim is to be that someone. We are a full-service firm, which means we commonly:

  • Investigate Accidents – We do not leave accident investigations to the authorities. We send our investigators. Our team photographs accident scenes, interviews witnesses, and tracks down police and insurance reports, to make sure our clients and we have the most thorough understanding of the facts and circumstances of the accident possible.
  • Prepare Strong Cases – We build cases against those responsible for our clients’ injuries or losses from the ground up. We identify legal theories and support them with facts that we know, from experience, judges, juries, insurance adjusters, and opposing counsel will find compelling.
  • Negotiate Settlements – The strength of the cases we prepare frequently leads our opponents to want to settle with our clients. We negotiate directly with insurance companies and opposing attorneys for a fair, just, and appropriate settlement.
  • Go to Trial – It’s not always possible to achieve a favorable settlement for our clients through negotiation alone. When it’s called for, we take our clients’ cases to court, where Attorney Kelly shines.

Suggestions for Accident Victims

You may be wondering what you can do to help preserve your rights and protect your potential claim before you come to Kelly & Associates seeking help. Here is a list of suggestions. These include:

  • Always Seeking Prompt Medical Care. We want our clients to be as healthy as possible given the circumstances. Not only does seeing a doctor protect your wellbeing, it also generates records that could be useful in pursuing a claim for damages.
  • Always Keeping Good Records. It is far easier to prove the amount of a client’s damages if there are documents to back them up. If you can, save all of your medical bills, pay stubs, invoices…anything that may tend to show the cost of being involved in and recovering from your car accident. Your attorney will most likely put them to use.
  • 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. Insurance adjusters do not necessarily have your best interests at heart. More often than not, in our experience, adjusters want to take advantage of a vulnerable moment in your life to get you to accept an inadequate settlement offer. Let an experienced attorney handle those discussions instead.
  • Always Staying Off Social Media. If you are among the many Brighton residents who are in school or just out of it, odds are you are also a heavy user of social media. Difficult as it may be to quit, it’s best you stay away from Instagram, Snapchat, and other platforms for the time being. Insurance adjusters and opposing attorneys love scrolling through your feed looking for ways to discredit you. Don’t help them out.
