I have been handling personal injury cases in Massachusetts for just over 20 years. The statute of limitations for the child should still be open, not starting to run until his or her 18th birthday. However, the more important consideration is to get to an experienced attorney in your area as soon as possible in order to do the research and preparation work that is required. Memories fade and documents disappear or change.

My Massachusetts office is in the Merrimack Valley. However, I know that there are many good attorneys closer to you, in Boston or the Cape.

For a minor, the statute of limitations doesn't start until 18 usually.

If you're asking about your child's injury, the ordinary statute is tolled for minor's. How long ago did this occur?

I agree with the other attorneys. Although, it is difficult to give an accurate evaluation of your case based on the limited information provided. It is always best to contact an experienced attorney who can evaluate all the facts and help determine your next best course of action.
