Our Springfield Personal Injury Lawyers Pursue Fair Compensation for Victims
When a personal injury victim suffers injuries, they also incur economic and non-economic losses as a result. As your Springfield injury lawyers, we aim to recover a fair payout to cover the cost of your accident-related expenses.
Our attorneys identify and document your recoverable damages, gathering evidence of their value and calculating a fair settlement range before beginning negotiations with the insurance carrier. If the case goes to court, we take our evidence to the jury, asking for an appropriate verdict and award.
Every case is different, which means the damages you can recover depend on the details of your case. In many cases, we can recover compensation for damages such as:
- Current and future medical care for accident injuries and complications
- Income losses for time missed at work because of injuries and treatment
- Diminished earning capacity if you cannot work your previous job
- Property damages, if applicable
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Reduced quality of life

Our Springfield Personal Injury Lawyers Manage Many Types of Accident Cases
A personal injury accident can occur in an almost endless number of ways. If you or a loved one suffered injuries and believe someone else was at fault, we may be able to pursue compensation.
These cases come in many variations, and our team has seen most of them over the last 85 years. Some of the most common ways we help victims include representing them as:
Springfield Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Bicyclists often suffer catastrophic injuries in collisions with motor vehicles. Our Springfield personal injury lawyers represent cyclists and their families, fighting for the compensation they need to cover current and future treatment, care, and support costs. We believe in holding careless drivers legally responsible for the damages they cause and their effects on the victims’ daily lives.
Springfield Car Crash Lawyers
Our Springfield motor vehicle accident attorneys understand the complexities of Massachusetts car insurance laws and how they apply in collision cases. We can assess your crash case and explain your legal options.
Springfield Dog Bite Lawyers
Massachusetts has dog bite laws that allow injured victims to hold the dog’s owner strictly liable. Our Springfield personal injury lawyers understand how these laws affect dog bite cases and how to hold the owner accountable. We represent victims and seek compensation in these cases regularly.
Springfield Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

You can trust our team to develop a compelling case showing how the other driver caused your collision and injuries. We will seek fair compensation in your case.
Springfield Pedestrian Collision Lawyers
Massachusetts law protects pedestrians when they must cross streets or share roads with drivers. However, these laws do not prevent all traffic accidents or pedestrian injuries. Our Springfield personal injury attorneys can build a case against the careless driver who caused your crash and hold them accountable.
Springfield Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys
Property owners have a responsibility to keep guests in their buildings and grounds safe. When there is an unreasonable hazard and the occupier, owner, or an employee fails to rectify it, the owner or company could be held legally responsible. Many times, slip and fall accidents happen because of a spill, leak, or improper lighting.
Springfield Truck Accident Lawyers
When a commercial truck driver causes a crash, our Springfield personal injury attorneys pursue compensation from the trucking company. We hold the driver’s employer legally responsible for our client’s injuries and damages. This makes big rig accident cases unique. Our attorneys handle them regularly and will not back down from any large corporation or corporate insurance carrier.
Our Springfield, MA, Personal Injury Lawyers Develop Strong Cases for Compensation
Almost all personal injuries occur because of negligence. One party acts carelessly or recklessly, hurting another in the process. To recover compensation for our clients, we must show the accused party acted negligently or intentionally.
To document negligence, we must satisfy the following four elements:
- Duty of care: The liable party had a responsibility to keep you safe. In a premises liability case, for example, property owners have a duty of care to maintain a safe property.
- Breach of duty: The at-fault party did not uphold their duty of care.
- Causation: The liable party’s negligence was the cause of your accident and injuries.
- Damages: You suffered damages because of the liable party’s negligence.
Our Attorneys Collect Evidence to Prove the Liable Party Owes You Compensation
Our Springfield personal injury lawyers gather evidence to prove you deserve compensation from the liable party. Some common types of evidence we use include:
- Official reports from police officers and other first responders
- Eyewitness statements
- Video and photos of the incident
- Physical evidence
- Relevant medical records
- Expert witness testimony
- Documentation of damages
We Can Explain Your Legal Options After a Springfield Personal Injury Accident
Once we have the evidence necessary to demand fair compensation, or we are ready to move forward with a personal injury lawsuit, we act. There are generally three ways we fight these cases for our clients:
- Negotiated insurance settlements: This is the most common way we secure payouts for Springfield personal injury victims. We negotiate with the liable party’s insurance carrier until we reach an agreement.
- Alternative dispute resolution: Under some circumstances, we engage in arbitration or mediation to reach a consensus on the payout amount.
- Going to trial and winning: When necessary, we present compelling evidence to the judge and jury at trial. We ask them to award fair compensation based on our client’s damages.
