Personal Injury Attorneys Serving You in Massachusetts
When you have been injured in a serious accident and sustained severe injuries, you don’t want to handle your case on your own. The problem is, every year, people attempt to handle their injury cases on their own but aren’t sure where to start. When you have received serious, lasting injuries that have left a huge impact on your life, you should turn to an attorney that you can trust.
Reasons to Turn to an Accident Attorney
When people have suffered minor injuries in an accident, they may not turn to legal help to negotiate a settlement or file a claim with the courts. However, when your accident case is severe or many elements are involved, having an accident attorney on your side can help you go up against the big insurance companies and teams of lawyers who may try to make a case against you. If you are facing expensive medical bills, have lost significant wages because you can’t return to work, and have a financial strain in many other areas, you should always have an attorney on your side to help you understand how to litigate these trying matters and get the compensation you deserve.
Pursuing a claim is an especially good idea in cases that involve long-term or permanent disability. If you are expected not to recover from your injuries in months or even years, you will need compensation for all that you have missed on a financial level. If an insurance company is refusing to make you a fair settlement offer, you may need the help of an attorney to work through the red tape and get you your compensation in a timely manner.
Cases We Handle
From motor vehicle accidents to those involving common carriers or drunk drivers, we handle a variety of cases to help you get the compensation you need for your serious injuries. Here is an overview of the cases we handle for those suffering serious injuries in Massachusetts due to the negligence of another party.
Auto Accidents: In 2014 alone, there were 354 fatalities and 4,027 injuries stemming from car accidents in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, after a car accident takes place, many people are unsure of what they should do aside from seeking medical treatment and trying to move forward with their lives. They may wonder how they can be compensated for both economic and non-economic damages, such as medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain, and suffering, and emotional distress. An attorney can help a car accident victim suffering from serious injuries prove the 4 elements of an auto accident case: duty, breach of duty, causation, and harm caused by the defendant. When drivers act negligently and cause others harm, they may be liable for the injuries that result.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries due to the minimal protection motorcyclists have on the roadways compared to motor vehicles. Drivers tend to forget about motorcycle riders on some occasions and speed around them, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, fail to check blind spots for motorcyclists or fail to yield. This can cause devastating injuries that lead to permanent disability and more. An attorney can show that a driver acted negligently in a motorcycle accident and help you get the compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian Accidents: Drivers owe a special duty of care to pedestrians as they are some of the most vulnerable people on the roadways. Negligence occurs in pedestrian-related accidents for a variety of reasons, from improper lane use, unmarked crosswalks at intersections, left-hand turn accidents, distractions like texting and driving, and more. If a driver violated a safety statute, and you were injured as a result, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible to retain your rights.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents: There are many commercial vehicles on our roads with the businesses that operate in Massachusetts today. As a result, there is a chance for commercial vehicle accidents. These include accidents with passenger cars, vans, box trucks, delivery vehicles, hearses, ice cream trucks, and more. In these unique cases, both drivers and companies could be liable for your injuries and owe you compensation for a variety of aspects like medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Truck Accidents: Though truck accidents are not as prevalent as motor vehicle accidents on our roadways, they still occur every day in Massachusetts. The injuries that stem from these accidents are almost always serious or catastrophic in nature. They can happen due to equipment failure, driving errors, avoiding rules and regulations, and more. Again, in truck accidents, it is not uncommon for multiple parties to be at fault for your accident, from the driver to the company itself. If a driver has broken regulations and laws, you could have an accident against a driver or the company.
Wrongful Death: Nobody expects to drive to work or home from a friend’s house and get into an accident that claims their life. If this has happened to your loved one, you may turn to the help of an attorney for compensation when your family has suffered financially and emotionally. The loss of a loved one can leave a huge impact on your life, especially when children and family members now lost out on income from wages, or have struggled emotionally due to not having their loved one’s companionship. An attorney can help in your dire time of need.
There are a variety of other cases that we handle in Massachusetts, from bus accidents, bicycle accidents, and Uber accidents, to those involving DUIs and so much more. Because your case is important to you, you should never move forward without an attorney on your side to help you bring your claim.
