Our Dedication to Cambridge Auto Accident Victims

As the home to Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge is an ever-changing and vibrant community. However, traffic accidents are a serious issue in the city – especially those that involve non-motorists. The Cambridge Police Department reports that, in fact, roughly 17 percent of the city’s traffic crashes involve cyclists and pedestrians.

According to the police department’s most recent report, crashes happen all over the city. However, they most frequently occur along Massachusetts Avenue near Central Square, Harvard Square, and Porter Square, and Cambridge and Hampshire Streets near Inman Square. It should come as no surprise that cars often share the streets in those areas with people who are walking or biking.

Attorney Michael Kelly is a New England Law School graduate who has focused his career on helping people who suffer injuries in such accidents. He had made client service our law firm’s top priority. That is why we offer our clients in Cambridge and throughout Massachusetts our 30-day satisfaction guarantee. We also take calls 24/7 to help clients with their questions and concerns.

We know how it can be a stressful time for motor vehicle accident victims and their families. So, if you are hurt in a crash, we will go to your home or meet with you in the hospital, if necessary, to discuss your case. Our Cambridge car accident lawyer always offers free consultations, and will never charge legal fees unless we secure compensation for our clients.

How Our Law Firm Can Help You After a Cambridge Car Accident

Many people wonder whether they should hire a car accident lawyer. After all, Cambridge, Massachusetts may have a lot of accidents, but not all are serious. Sometimes, minor fender benders may require only minor car repairs and result in no injuries. However, if a crash causes serious injury or the death of a loved one, you should seek help from a lawyer as soon as possible.

At Kelly & Associates, we will immediately begin working on your case. Here are just a few things we will handle for you:

  • Investigation – We will gather and analyze all evidence that pertains to your crash and injuries, from accident scene photos to medical records. We want to know why your accident happened. We also want to understand how your injuries have affected your life.
  • Consultation – We work with top experts in their fields, including accident reconstruction specialists and life care planners. Knowledgeable experts can help our firm to determine liability and the amount of damages you are due for your injuries and losses.
  • Negotiation – You should never have to deal with recovering from a serious injury while, at the same time, negotiating with an insurance company. Our team can handle all communications with the insurance company, demand a full and fair settlement of your claim and let you focus on your recovery.
  • Litigation – If the insurance company denies that its insured driver caused your crash in Cambridge or refuses to pay what you deserve for your physical, emotional and financial harm, we will be ready to go to trial for you. Michael Kelly is a highly experienced, aggressive litigator with a record of success in the courtroom.

We have built our law practice at Kelly & Associates on trust. Your lawyer will work directly with you – not a paralegal or case manager – and will make sure that you know what is happening in your case at all times. Additionally, we will be there for you if you encounter any problems with getting your car repaired or replaced, finding proper medical care or dealing with bill collectors.

Take These Steps After an Auto Accident in Cambridge

If you were recently involved in a crash in Cambridge, Kelly & Associates encourages you to follow our checklist to ensure that you protect your ability to recover full and fair compensation. Among the steps on that list are:

  • Getting medical help right away. Seeing your regular doctor or visiting a nearby hospital such as Cambridge Hospital or Massachusetts General will be crucial for your health and your car accident claim. If you wait too long to get medical attention, an insurance company may try to argue that the car accident did not cause your injuries.
  • Collect and keep all bills and receipts. You should keep copies of your medical bills, car accident repair receipts and records of any other expenses brought on by your accident and injuries.
  • Order a copy of your crash report. To get a copy of your report, you can call the police department that responded to the collision or check out the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles. Among the departments which serve the Cambridge area are:
    • Cambridge Police Department
    • Harvard Police Department
    • MIT Police Department.
  • Don’t talk to the other driver’s insurance company. Insurance companies train their adjusters to elicit statements that they can use to try to avoid liability or reduce the value of a claim. You should decline to give a recorded statement or sign any documents until you speak with a lawyer first.
  • Don’t talk about your case on social media. Do not post about your crash, discuss your injuries or post pictures of vacations, parties, physical activities or anything else that an insurance company may try to use against you.
