Damages You Could Pursue in a Massachusetts Personal Injury Claim
A personal injury claim aims to secure financial compensation for your losses due to someone else’s reckless, careless, or negligent actions. Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC will investigate the cause of your injuries and establish the full scope of your losses.
We strive to help you secure appropriate compensation for the damages you sustained, including:
Economic damages are tangible monetary losses usually calculated using documentation such as bills, invoices, and financial statements. These damages are designed to help you recover actual expenses incurred to treat your injuries, repair damaged property, and reestablish your financial stability. Such damages may include:
- Medical bills
- Future medical treatment
- Medical equipment and medication
- Prosthetics and assistive devices
- Domestic assistance
- Damaged property repair or replacement
The extent of your economic damages depends significantly on your injury severity. However, even minor injuries can incur significant expenses. A thorough review by a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer can help ensure your claim includes all past and future costs associated with your injuries.
Non-economic damages are intangible losses associated with your injuries. They may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of companionship
- Diminished quality of life
These losses are often subjective and may be subject to legal limitations depending on your case details. Although non-economic damages are harder to quantify, you still have a right to seek financial compensation for these difficulties.

Our Lawyers Handle a Wide Range of Personal Injury Claims in Massachusetts
Over the past 85 years, Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC has built a reputation for success by working with clients in a variety of injury cases. Types of accident cases we can handle include:
You have a right to seek compensation when you suffer injuries in a car accident due to someone else’s careless or reckless behavior. Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC’s diligent car accident attorneys can gather evidence, investigate the cause of the crash, determine fault, and pursue reasonable compensation on your behalf.
Accidents with commercial trucks often result in severe or fatal injuries. Due to their extreme size and weight, semi-trucks can be hard to maneuver, creating more significant hazards for passenger vehicles sharing the road.
Although truck drivers may be at fault, truck accidents often involve multiple parties, including trucking companies and parts manufacturers. Trantolo & Trantolo LLC’s truck accident lawyers delve into the facts of the case to establish who is at fault and file a claim with the appropriate parties.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
If you’ve experienced a life-altering pedestrian or bicycle collision, our assistance can guide you in seeking the rightful compensation. Connect with an experienced Massachusetts pedestrian accident lawyer to ensure you receive the fair compensation you deserve following such an impactful incident. Our dedicated team is here to support you through the legal process.
Dog bites can cause significant lifelong harm. A dog owner who fails to maintain control of their animal can be held liable for the injuries their dog causes. If you or a loved one suffered dog bite injuries, including scarring, disfigurement, lacerations, or broken bones, our dog bite lawyers can help you. We can explain more when you reach out to us.
Slip and Fall
Slip and fall injuries can occur when a property owner fails to address hazards on their property. Uneven flooring, loose tiles, slippery surfaces, and lack of handrails are a few of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries. Whether you fell in a retail establishment, residential community, or workplace, our slip and fall lawyers are here to assist with your claim.
If you experienced injury or illness due to a defective or dangerous product, whether a prescription drug, medical device, or consumer product, our product liability attorneys know how to build a claim for the damages you suffered. You can contact our team to learn whether you have grounds to pursue a product defect claim.
Tips for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Massachusetts
Personal injury cases vary widely, from car and truck accidents to defective products, dog bites, and falls. Regardless of the type of personal injury you suffered, there are steps you can take to protect your legal rights:
Seek Medical Care Immediately
Your health is the most important consideration after a severe injury. If you are not transported to the hospital by ambulance, visit your nearest emergency room or urgent care facility as soon as possible. Schedule a follow-up with your primary care physician and establish a treatment plan for your injuries. Severe injuries are often masked by adrenaline in the aftermath of an accident, so prompt medical care is crucial even if you think you feel fine.
Follow Your Doctor’s Treatment Plan
Remember that your medical records serve as evidence of your injuries and their effect on your quality of life. Attend all physical therapy, follow-ups, and other medical appointments. Use prosthetics and medications and avoid activities as instructed by your treating physician.
Evidence is crucial to prove the extent of your injuries and validate the losses you claim in a personal injury case. The more thorough your proof, the more compelling your case. If possible, take photos or videos of the accident scene, including your injuries and any damage to property or the surrounding area. Obtain contact information from anyone who witnessed the accident and request a copy of the police report, if available.
Keep an Injury Journal
Maintain a log or journal that details how your injuries affect your daily life. Include dates and times, and details about pain levels, impairments, missed work, and activities you miss due to your injuries. These details can help substantiate non-economic damages.
Consider Hiring a Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyer
Insurance companies are notorious for offering low settlements that may only cover a portion of an accident victim’s medical expenses and lost income. Rather than trying to navigate the negotiations alone, you should hire a personal injury lawyer with experience handling claims like yours.
Trantolo & Trantolo LLC’s personal injury attorneys in Massachusetts can help you resolve legal issues, understand your legal rights, gather evidence, build a claim, and negotiate a settlement. We will do whatever it takes to recover compensation for your losses, even if it means defending your rights before a judge or jury.
Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Lawsuits in Massachusetts
Mass. Gen. Laws Ch. 260 § 2A limits personal injury victims’ deadline to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The deadline can vary depending on the facts of your case, and missing a critical legal deadline could prevent you from recovering your financial losses.
Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC’s skilled personal injury lawyers can help keep your case on track. Reach out to our office as soon as possible after your accident to discuss your legal options. We will begin work immediately and ensure you are aware of the deadlines that apply to your case.
