Our Worcester Personal Injury Lawyers Protect Client’s Rights and Seek Compensation
When someone else’s careless or reckless behavior causes injuries, they are legally responsible for any economic and non-economic damages the victim endures. This includes all the expenses and losses they incur because of their injuries, treatment, time missed at work, and related costs.
Our Worcester personal injury attorneys seek money to cover these costs, recovering compensation when possible by negotiating a settlement agreement with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. This is often an auto, homeowner’s, or business liability insurance policy. If a settlement is impossible, we could take the case to a civil trial and ask the jury to award appropriate damages.
Whether dealing with the insurance adjuster or a judge and jury, we present evidence to show our client’s recoverable damages. This often includes:
- Medical care costs to date
- Future care and support needs
- Income losses, current and future
- Diminished earning capacity if there are lasting injuries
- Property damages, when applicable
- Miscellaneous expenses documented by receipts
- Pain and suffering and other intangible damages
When victims die from their accident injuries, a Worcester wrongful death lawyer can help surviving family members receive financial compensation for their losses. This is the best way to hold the at-fault party accountable and get justice for your loved one. Under Massachusetts’ wrongful death law, Mass. Gen. Laws Ann. ch. 229, § 2, only the estate executor can represent the family and act as the plaintiff in a Worcester wrongful death lawsuit.
A Worcester attorney from our law firm will explain who needs to handle this process, how our team can help, and how quickly you need to get started. Contact our team today for your free case review.

Depending on the type of injury accident, you might work with our Worcester, MA:
Bicycle Accident Injuries Lawyer

We document what happened and fight for a fair payout for current and future medical care, income losses, pain and suffering, and more. We handle catastrophic injury accidents regularly. We are here to help.
Auto Accident Attorney
When a driver causes a collision on Worcester roads, their victims generally file a claim with their own personal injury protection coverage to get the money they need to pay for medical bills and cover lost wages.
Our lawyers will assess your case and explain your legal options. We know how these laws work and how we often secure additional compensation for our clients through an auto liability claim or personal injury lawsuit.
Dog Bite Lawyer
When a dog bites someone without being provoked, Massachusetts law allows the victim to hold the dog’s owner liable. Unlike some other states, this is strict liability. That means our Worcester personal injury attorneys can seek and secure compensation for bite victims even if the dog has no history of similar behavior.
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Our Worcester personal injury lawyers take pride in motorcyclists trusting us with their accident cases. We ride. We understand. We fight for fair compensation for those who suffered injuries in these collisions. We identify the negligent driver, develop a strong case against them, and demand fair compensation through an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit.
Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer
Property owners in Worcester are responsible for preventing injuries on their grounds and in any buildings they own. They must monitor for and eliminate any unreasonable hazards to protect guests. Common examples include many types of trip or slip hazards that could cause falls.
When they fail to identify and rectify a hazard, and an injury occurs, the property owner or occupier is legally responsible for the injuries and related damages. Our Worcester personal injury attorneys hold them accountable and recover money for our clients.
Truck Accident Attorney
When a commercial driver causes a serious injury crash, our Worcester personal injury lawyers can often hold their employer accountable. We pursue a case against a trucking company or other corporation by seeking compensation from their large corporate liability insurance policy.
Our Injury Lawyers Know How to Show Negligence and Liability in a Worcester Case
When one party causes another to suffer injuries, it usually occurs because of their negligence. They act carelessly or recklessly, an incident happens, and there is physical, emotional, and/or financial harm. To recover damages for the victim, our Worcester personal injury lawyers need to prove negligence and hold the at-fault party liable. We must document four things:
- A Duty of Care: The accused party owed the victim a duty of care, often because of applicable laws, such as a specific traffic law.
- A Breach of Duty: They failed to uphold their duty of care, possibly violating the law in question.
- Causation: Their breach of duty was the proximate cause of the accident. For example, failure to stop at a red light could be the direct cause of an intersection collision.
- Harm: When an accident or incident occurs, the victim suffers harm. This could include physical, emotional, and/or financial harm.
We build negligence cases by gathering evidence that tells the story of what happened. The types of evidence available and the necessary steps to identify, collect, and preserve it vary depending on the type of accident and the case’s unique circumstances. However, some common examples include:
- Eyewitness statements
- Any official reports filed by police officers or other first responders
- Video of the incident
- Photos from the scene
- A scene survey
- Physical evidence available from the incident
- Relevant medical records
- Expert testimony
- Documents showing damages, such as medical bills, receipts, and income paperwork
Some cases are more complex than others, or there are challenges because of a lack of evidence. However, our Worcester personal injury attorneys have more than 85 years of extensive experience handling these kinds of cases. We know how to use the available evidence to present a compelling case, holding the at-fault party accountable and pursuing fair compensation.
How Our Worcester Personal Injury Attorneys Handle Claims and Civil Cases
From our first interaction with a personal injury victim through to the close of their case, we remain focused on protecting their best interests and getting the payout they need to cover their expenses and losses.
Getting started on personal injury cases as soon as possible allows us to better protect your rights and build a stronger case. This is why we recommend contacting our Worcester team as soon as your injuries are stable and you can make the call. Sometimes, insurance adjusters contact victims to make a lowball offer or ask for a recorded statement within days of an incident. Ideally, we would already be handling your case before this occurs.
When we take on a personal injury case, we manage all communication with the insurance company, protecting your rights. We also investigate what occurred and gather evidence to support your case. Some evidence may be available immediately after an incident that disappears as time passes. This could include essential evidence such as:
- Video of the incident
- Additional eyewitnesses
- Evidence from the scene
We also need to know about your case quickly because deadlines apply. While Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 260 § 2A generally offers up to three years to begin a lawsuit, additional deadlines could exist. We need to ensure we meet the applicable timeline to protect your right to recover compensation.
