Personal Injury

If you or a family member has been injured, call the Law Office of Katz and Whitehead for a free consultation. We will evaluate the liability issue and give you our opinion as to the strength of your claim. If we determine that you have a claim to be pursued we will do it on a contingency basis which means that we will only get a fee if the case is successful and we obtain either a settlement for you or a money judgment from the Court. Our most important immediate job will be to ensure that you get whatever medical treatment is necessary to get you back to your pre­accident physical condition. As part of this we will take charge in arranging for the payment of your medical bills by the responsible party. Your goal should be to make sure that you have a lawyer that is experienced and prepared to navigate the system for you so that you can concentrate on getting better. Our high quality personal injury attorneys serve the Greater Boston area, serving the communities of Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Newton, Allston, and Brookline, amongst others.
