Life is great, until it’s not. Most days are similar in many ways. We have the same joys, triumphs, light stresses and seemingly important “issues” to contend with. However, and tragically, sometimes a traumatic event comes along that upends our lives and makes us realize what is truly important. What we thought were major issues in our lives fade away as we struggle to recover our physical health or support a loved one who has been injured or become unexpectedly ill.
If you or a family member has been injured or you lost a loved one, we can help.
A Personal Injury (or a Death) is a Painful Experience and a Confusing Time.
Very few situations remind us how fragile life can be as rapidly as a catastrophic injury or a death caused by someone’s inattention, recklessness or negligence.
Questions of all kind need answers immediately… medical questions, legal questions, financial questions, personal and family questions, etc. Action must be taken… medical action, legal action, financial action, family action, etc. Without help, the questions, problems and suffering multiply as ripples from the tragedy spread throughout all aspects of post-accident life and compound day after day.
Every client, family and situation is different but some factors, the human factor, never change. In every case, the lawyer and law firm’s responsibilities should include truly caring and providing prompt attention to answer questions, identify needs, provide immediate and long-term assistance, and to secure real results for the client.
We take great pride in being able to promptly, compassionately and properly guide you and your family through even the most difficult personal injury or wrongful death situation, to provide all assistance needed and to secure results you want and need.
A Comprehensive Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Law Practice That Knows How To Help.
We are dedicated to helping individuals and families across a wide range of personal injuries, accidents and losses. However, despite vast knowledge and experience gained over 25 years helping personal injury clients, we know that we do not know everything. If we are not the right firm to help your situation, we will work diligently to connect you with a trusted professional to assist with your specific need as we want you in the best hands possible period.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one, we urge you to contact our office for help with any of the following legal matters:
Motor Vehicle Injury – Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of injury and death. Massachusetts law and insurance policy provide, in most situations, immediate benefits to assist with lost wages, out of pocket expenses, funeral costs, rental car and property damage. We will explain the law to you and let you know benefits and protections you are entitled to. Thereafter we will fight to make sure your needs are met and to obtain the compensation and justice deserved. Our firm handles all types of motor vehicle injuries in Massachusetts including car and motorcycle crashes, tractor-trailer and commercial vehicle collisions, pedestrian and bicycle impacts and almost every other type of transportation-related event.. railroad, bus, subway, boat, etc.
Injury on Another’s Property – Property owners need to keep their premise reasonably safe from dangers that could cause a person to slip, trip, fall or be harmed. If they do not promptly fix a known danger, warn the public or allow a dangerous condition to exist, they could and should be held liable for accidents that result. Our premise liability practice, not only encompasses classic slip and fall injury and death but extends to almost all other situations… attack and assault a property owner failed to prevent, holding bars and restaurants liable for over-serving alcohol to a guest who later injures themselves or another, falling debris, toxic exposure, etc.
Workplace Injury – Massachusetts workers’ compensation law covers employees injured on the job regardless of how it happened. Unfortunately, worker compensation benefits, in most situations, only cover medical care and a portion of lost wages. However, when a third-party (non-employer) is responsible for causing the accident or when other special laws apply, our workplace injury attorneys can help obtain a full measure of compensation for our clients and not just partial reimbursed wages and medical bill payment. From construction workers to first responders, we proudly represent those great employees and workers who put themselves at risk every day to make our lives better.
Class Action/Defective Product – Product makers and others are liable for the harm caused when they release a defective product on the market. Consumers can not know a product is unsafe until it is too late, so it is up to manufacturers, distributors and retailers to make sure they are only making and selling safe products. Our product liability team helps individual victims of product defects and also pursue class action litigation when a design or manufacturing defect harms tens, hundreds or thousands of people.
Asbestos Exposure/Mesothelioma – Companies continued to use asbestos for decades after its health risks were known, and property owners failed to remove, seal or otherwise properly remediate asbestos in commercial and residential properties. Asbestos and mesothelioma cases are complex and hard-fought by the insurance companies. We put in the time and effort necessary to achieve a truly proper recovery for asbestos victims and their families.
Wrongful Death – In the most tragic of instances, another’s negligence results in the death of an innocent person. Massachusetts has strict laws about who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit and what they can recover. Our firm knows these laws and works tirelessly to achieve justice for a lost family member, holding responsible parties accountable and obtaining financial compensation to support a spouse, child, parent or heir as they continue to live without their loved one.
Criminal Defense – Getting convicted of a crime does not just mean you could have to pay a fine or spend time in jail. The repercussions of a criminal record can ripple across your home, professional life and standing in the community. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys handle a wide range of criminal offenses. We will work to get the best result available, whether that means getting the charges reduced or dropped, having the case dismissed, negotiating an agreeable plea of probation or defending you at trial to prove your innocents.
