Lawyers' group offering free help for bomb victims
BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Bar Association says it can connect people who suffered losses in the Boston Marathon bombings with lawyers who can provide free legal help.
The lawyers' group also has put checklists online to identify potential legal issues facing both individual victims and businesses who were affected by the April 15 attack.
The bombing investigation resulted in a closure of some businesses for days as law-enforcement officials carried out their probe near the race's finish line area.
Association officials say volunteers are already helping with multiple legal cases.
