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 not possible to obtain, 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

Even if your situation is unique or the circumstances are complex, we are here to help. With 85 years of experience in handling claims and lawsuits, you can trust our expertise.

Here are some types of personal injury cases our team in Worcester, MA handles:

Bicycle Accident

Our Worcester personal injury attorneys understand the serious injuries often suffered by bicyclists hit by careless drivers. 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

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 understand how these laws work and often secure additional compensation for our clients through an auto liability claim or personal injury lawsuit.

Dog Bite

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

Our Worcester personal injury lawyers take pride in motorcyclists trusting us with their accident cases and will 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

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

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.

Let’s win your case TOGETHER


Filing a Wrongful Death Claim on Behalf of a Loved One

If you lost a loved one due to someone’s negligence, we offer our condolences for your loss. While no amount of financial compensation can make up for your loss, filing a claim against the at-fault party holds them accountable and offers you relief from the financial burden their negligence caused.

Filing a wrongful death claim in Worcester, Massachusetts, is a detailed legal process governed by specific statutes designed to provide compensation to the surviving family members of a deceased individual. This claim arises when the death is caused by the wrongful act, neglect, or default of another party. Understanding the legal framework and procedural requirements is crucial for those seeking justice and compensation.

Legal Framework

In Massachusetts, wrongful death claims are primarily governed by Massachusetts General Laws (M.G.L.) Chapter 229, Section 2. This statute allows the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate to bring a lawsuit for damages against the responsible party. The purpose of these claims is to compensate for the pecuniary loss suffered by the surviving family members due to the untimely death of their loved one.

Eligibility to File

According to M.G.L. Chapter 229, Section 2, the wrongful death claim must be initiated by the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate. This individual is typically named in the decedent’s will. If no executor is named, the court appoints an administrator. The claim is filed on behalf of the estate and aims to secure compensation for the beneficiaries, which can include the spouse, children, and other dependents of the deceased.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Massachusetts is generally three years from the date of death, as specified in M.G.L. Chapter 229, Section 2. It is imperative to adhere to this timeline, as failing to do so can result in the dismissal of the claim.

Recoverable Damages

Damages in a wrongful death claim can be substantial and are intended to cover both economic and non-economic losses. Economic damages may include medical expenses incurred before death, funeral and burial costs, loss of the deceased’s earning capacity, and loss of benefits such as pension plans. Non-economic damages cover aspects like pain and suffering endured by the deceased prior to death, loss of companionship, and emotional distress suffered by the surviving family members. Massachusetts law also allows for punitive damages if the death was caused by malicious, willful, wanton, or reckless conduct.

Proving a Wrongful Death Claim

To succeed in a wrongful death claim, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant’s actions were the direct cause of the deceased’s death. This typically involves demonstrating that the death resulted from negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. Essential elements include duty of care, breach of that duty, causation, and damages. Expert testimony, medical records, accident reports, and witness statements often play critical roles in establishing these elements.

The Legal Process

Filing a wrongful death claim is complex, especially while you’re grieving the loss of a loved one.  A Worcester attorney from our law firm will handle the complexities and nuances of your case so you can focus on healing from your loss.

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.
