Motorcycle collisions — Motorcycle accidents often result in severe head injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries and even death. We understand the specific challenges involved in motorcycle collisions and the stigma attached to bikers. We will work hard to help you recover just compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries.
Truck crashes — We investigate the causes of truck and tractor-trailer accidents, and work to hold all negligent parties accountable, from the truck driver to the trucking company and/or the manufacturer of a defective truck part.
Accidents involving public transportation — Whether your child was injured on a school bus or you were hurt while riding public transportation or in a collision with an emergency vehicle, we can help you hold public entities accountable for public transportation accidents.
Insurance claims and denials— Insurance companies are businesses. They will delay, deny and defend against your valid auto accident claim. The first settlement they offer to you will probably not be a fair offer. Do not speak to an insurance company before you contact us about your accident.
Drunk driving accidents — We believe in holding drunk drivers accountable by bringing claims for compensatory damages and punitive damages against drunk drivers, as well as dram shop claims against bars and restaurants that serve alcohol to already drunk patrons. We also handle cases involving underage drunk drivers.
High-Speed Car Accidents
The faster cars are moving, the more likely they are to cause serious damage and catastrophic injuries in an accident. High-speed car accidents can happen anywhere, from highways to back roads. While the location of your accident may play a factor in your claim, the most important thing is that you get the medical care you need after your accident. With extensive resources in the Massachusetts medical community, we will make sure you have access to the care you need.
While you focus on your recovery, we will take care of your legal concerns. Working with accident reconstruction experts, we will determine the conditions that led to your accident. When speed plays a part, it can be hard to get honest answers from drivers and insurance companies. We take the time to investigate every crash, so the evidence speaks for itself.
Low-Speed Car Accidents
An accident does not have to occur at a high speed in order to cause serious injuries. There is no way to predict how people will be impacted by a car accident. Some people can walk away from a high-speed crash, while others suffer life-altering injuries in a low-speed crash. If you have suffered any injury, from whiplash to broken bones, as the result of someone else’s negligence, make sure you have access to proper treatment.
It is understandable that you have concerns about insurance, especially if you were in a minor car crash. But do not assume that you cannot bring a claim because your accident happened at a low speed. Your injuries and their impact on your life are real. If the insurance company tells you that the accident was too small to bring a claim, make sure you talk to an experienced attorney first.
Accidents Involving Teen Drivers
You cannot help but notice the large number of stories involving catastrophic and fatal car accidents involving teen drivers and passengers. In fact, whether due to cellphone use and texting or simply a lack of experience and awareness, car accidents are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States.
If you have been injured in a teen driving accident in Boston or anywhere else in Massachusetts, it is in your best interest to discuss your case with a lawyer from our law firm.
School Bus Accidents
When children leave the home to go to school, every parent has to assume that the school bus will take proper care of his or her child. However, acts of negligence can happen going to and from school, and children can be injured as a result. Was your child run over by a bus, hit by a bus or did he or she suffer injury on the bus as a result of a fall, bullying or a crash?
Naturally, your first concern is the health and well-being of your injured child. However, the sooner a lawyer is on board to advocate for you and your child, the greater the likelihood is that important evidence will be preserved. This evidence will help prepare the strongest possible case to obtain the compensation that you need to cover medical bills. You and your injured child may also be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering.
Assuming that the school bus belonged to a public entity such as a school district, different procedures may apply than those in an “ordinary” personal injury claim. Filing deadlines may come more quickly, for example.
