vehicle accident lawyer for massachusetts, new hampshire and maine
A significant portion of my injury practice involves representing drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians injured in vehicle accidents. Since 2002 I have successfully represented numerous clients injured in car and vehicle crashes, and those who have been hurt when struck by a car, motorcycle, bus, or truck.
If you’ve been injured in a vehicle accident, you should know that insurance companies for the responsible drivers don’t want you to hire an attorney. They are counting on you to take their wholly-inadequate offers, which (they want you to believe), is the best they can do.
You have rights if you’ve been injured. You are entitled to full and fair compensation – not one penny less. It is my job to help you in seeking such compensation.
We work to hold other drivers fully accountable for the injuries and damages they cause. If a fair settlement is not forthcoming, we will not hesitate to take the cases of our clients to trial and let a jury decide liability and damages.
In addition to holding others drivers accountable, in some instances an accident victim is entitled to collect for damages and injuries from their own insurance company. If you carry such insurance, we will put your insurance carrier on notice and file the appropriate claims.
I would invite you to call me at (978) 851-5145 to schedule your free, no-obligation consultation and learn how I can help you.
There is no fee for the firm unless you receive compensation. In the interim, I would invite you to see the information below, as well as the other information on our website about personal injury law and compensation.

As a result of the time spent in a car, the likelihood of being involved in a motor vehicle accident increases. According to a recent report published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently there were over five and one half million motor vehicle crashes in one year. These accidents can happen in a variety of ways involving different types of vehicles.
