Best possible outcome
I cannot say enough good things about Mike's professionalism: dedication, integrity, expertise. Mike helped me through a process I definitely would have botched. His experience with the specific court and my type of claim was evident from the start. Mike was patient with my many, many questions, and always made himself available..of course he had to be in court, but even on those days, he got back to me. His cohorts were also as helpful as they could be (no small comfort zone thing). My case had the best outcome which could happen. In the above and beyond the call of duty range, Mike followed up on a relatively miniscule expense claim ($400) which he did not profit from, months after my case was settled. He was fastidious about this detail and had filed a claim. I had almost forgotten about it when his office called me to find out if I had been compensated. It's that attention to detail which separates him from the rest.

Biography

Attorney Smith is a strong advocate for the rights of injured and disabled. He possesses over 20 years of legal experience. After graduating with honors from Boston University School of Business Management, he started his career as a workers compensation claims adjuster.

Attorney Smith soon realized he could accomplish more in his career if he earned a Law Degree. He decided to attend Suffolk University Law School on Beacon Hill, Boston, MA. Soon after graduation, he worked briefly at a prestigious Insurance Defense Firm in Boston, Massachusetts. He quickly realized he did not want to represent big insurance companies and employers against the working class.

Attorney Smith then took his talents to Lowell, Massachusetts and practiced law at one of the largest plaintiff oriented law firms in Merrimack Valley. It was there he determined it was his calling to represent the less fortunate and pursue injury and disability claims on behalf of clients and their families. After handling personal Injury, disability and workers compensation matters for over a decade in Lowell, he was offered an opportunity to work at one of the largest plaintiff personal injury firms in the State of Massachusetts. While at this firm in Boston, he handled countless workers compensation and third party claims on behalf of his clients.

After working at a large specialty plaintiff personal injury law firm, he decided he could properly serve the needs of his clients if he stated his own law firm. Attorney Smith is the founder of the Mass Injury Group. His firm represents hundreds of clients across the state of Massachusetts. His firm specializes in handling all types of injury claims including motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, wrongful death claims, negligence claims, premises liability cases, workers compensation injuries and social security disability matters.

Attorney Michael O. Smith has handled countless jury and non-jury trials.

Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered
Q. I'm on 34A in Massachusetts and my adjuster refuse to pay me is this legal
A: I concur with the previous answer. It is difficult to answer without further information. Generally speaking, if the WC insurer does not have permission by the Department of Industrial Accidents to stop your checks and you have not settled your case or gone back to work, then the stoppage of your checks could be considered illegal. There are other times your checks could be suspended. The insurer has the right to suspend your checks if they can show you failed to attend an IME. If you have an attorney I strongly encourage you to speak with your attorney. If you are not represented, I encourage you to reach out to an experienced WC attorney in Massachusetts.
Q. Could I potentially have a malpractice claim?
A: Sorry to hear about your situation and the complications you are experiencing. Clearly, you have suffered damages. The question will be whether the staff at the initial ER visit deviated from the standard level of care and due to their alleged mistake in failure to diagnosis, you were harmed. Most medical malpractice cases require an expert doctor to testify and state there was negligence on behalf of the ER and staff and that negligence caused your harm. I strongly suggest you contact an experienced personal injury and medical malpractice attorney to further discuss whether you have a viable claim.
Q. in MVA 11/5/19. other driver at fault. I have life changing injuries in excess of $10k. My atty never updates me.
A: I agree with the other two answers. You should ask your attorney for an in person meeting to review your claim in depth and figure out the issues with your outstanding medical bills. You should also have a talk with your attorney regarding the potential value of your case. Another important question for your attorney is to determine what insurance coverages there are to compensate you. If your attorney is not communicating with you, then it is time to look for another attorney. Find an experienced attorney who handles motor vehicle accident law. Most will offer a free consultation and work on contingent fee.
