What’s the statute on limitations to file a personal injury claim in MA?

MORE INFORMATION:

I was injured pretty seriously in a car accident on a residential street in Massachusetts. I’ve read an article on selecting a lawyer, but I am feeling rushed and confused. I’ve been contacted by someone who I think represents an attorney. She said I should hire an attorney fast. What’s the statute on  limitations to file a personal injury claim?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:
There is generally a three year statute of limitation by which you must file a lawsuit. Depending on where the accident happened and who caused your injury, this could be shorter or longer. The decision to hire a lawyer should not be rushed; you should meet with the lawyer and make certain that he has the experience and background to help you with your particular case.
