Firefighters Rescue Woman and Child from Burning HomeEverett, MA (July 14, 2018) – A fire raging through a multi-family home unit on Friday left two firefighters and one resident with serious injuries.  Around 2:00 pm Friday, fire crews with the Everett Fire Department responded to a three-alarm fire at the complex, located at 13 Morris Street.  Many residents were fleeing the complex as firefighters arrived.   The fire had originated from the basement, but quickly engulfed the entire building as fire personnel worked to extinguish the flames.

download-1-4-300x168In nearly every personal injury case, the amount of available insurance coverage is one of the initial and most important questions that must be answered.   Several issues may arise in the context of determining the availability of coverage for a particular accident.

Coverage Minimum Limits

In Massachusetts, a person is required to carry automobile insurance and it is illegal not to do so.  Any insurance policy issued in our state has minimum coverage limits.  In Massachusetts, every driver is required to carry coverage with at least $20,000.00 per injured person and $40,000.00 per accident.  Additionally, you are required to have uninsured motorist protection in the same amounts.
