What is Personal Injury Law?

A personal injury occurs when a person suffers harm because of the recklessness, or negligence, of another individual or party.

Personal injuries are usually the result of accidents. Common examples include car accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck wrecks, and slip and falls.

In Massachusetts, people who have been harmed due to another’s negligence may seek compensation for their injuries and other damages. This is done by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party asking for payment for their losses, usually through a settlement. Cases that cannot be settled may go to trial for a judge or jury verdict.

It’s wise to contact an experienced personal injury attorney rather than handle your claim alone. While you could negotiate with the insurance company on your own or represent yourself in court, your chances of recovering maximum compensation are much better when you hire a lawyer. That’s because you may need to file numerous legal documents, collect evidence, call on experts, and take other actions to win your case — all things that attorneys are trained to do.

The knowledgeable Boston attorneys at Kelly & Associates Injury Lawyers have skillfully handled personal injury cases for years. We know how to navigate the complex legal system. We know what it takes to build a successful claim. We know what it takes to win.

Our dedicated personal injury attorneys are accomplished negotiators and trial lawyers. That means that if the insurance company refuses to pay the money you deserve, we won’t hesitate to take your claim to trial. “The Law Guys” won’t let you be shortchanged.

We Handle Injury Cases Just Like Yours

Car Accident Lawyer

Being involved in a car accident can be devastating. If the crash led to serious injuries, you may find yourself facing piles of costly medical bills with little means to repay them — especially if you are unable to work while you recover.

You deserve the best legal representation possible to obtain the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and support your family. With severe accidents, the costs are typically much higher than the amount of the liability policy of the at-fault driver. That means that even if the insurance company accepts your claim without question, there won’t be enough money to cover the full extent of your losses.

But the insurance company does not represent your interests. Its main concern is its bottom line and settling for as cheaply as possible. On the other hand, our Boston car accident attorneys work solely for your benefit.

Whether you were injured by a drunk driver, in hit-and-run crash, or another type of collision, the Boston car accident attorneys at Kelly & Associates Injury Lawyers can fight to make things right. We have extensive experience helping people just like you. We’re committed to providing top legal representation that puts your needs and wishes first.

Put our knowledge and skills to work for you. Call us today for a free consultation.

Truck Accident Attorney

Commercial truck accidents can result in severe injuries due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicles and the force with which they collide into other cars. If you or a loved one was hurt a truck accident in Boston, it’s essential to contact an experienced truck accident attorney right away.

Truck accident claims are complex. The trucking industry is governed by both state and federal laws. It’s important to have a proven lawyer on your side who understands how these laws work so that you get the best possible representation with your claim.

In addition, tractor-trailer crashes usually result in the worst injuries. Even with the most advanced safety features, a car simply can’t withstand the force of being hit by an 80,000-pound truck. If you were seriously hurt, you need an attorney who will demand maximum compensation to account for your past, current, and future expenses.

Another critical reason to hire a good truck accident lawyer is because numerous parties may be to blame. Possible defendants include:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company
  • Truck’s owner
  • Cargo loading company
  • Maintenance companies and mechanics
  • Truck manufacturer
  • Auto parts manufacturer
  • City or state governments
  • Other drivers

It’s very common for truck accidents to have multiple at-fault parties, which is one reason why these cases are so complicated. An experienced Boston personal injury lawyer can identify all the liable parties and hold them responsible. You can count on “The Law Guys” to do everything possible to obtain the compensation you are owed.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle accidents can also cause serious harm. Motorcycles are lightweight and less visible to other vehicles. On Boston’s congested roads, this can be a recipe for disaster.

Motorcyclists don’t have the same safety advantages that occupants of passenger vehicles do. The don’t have airbags, seat belts, or steel frames to shield them from damage if a crash occurs.
As a result, motorcycle accident injuries can be particularly severe, leading to life-changing trauma such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation, burns, and permanent disfigurement.

If someone else’s recklessness caused your motorcycle crash, you could be eligible to take legal action against the responsible party. Our Boston motorcycle accident attorneys have a track record of securing top-dollar settlements and verdicts in motorcycle crash cases. You can count on Kelly & Associates Injury Lawyers to seek the compensation you deserve.

Pedestrian accidents occur in places where people and motorists have to share space. This includes a lot of areas in an urban city like Boston. Crosswalks, intersections, and parking lots are among the most common sites of pedestrian accidents throughout Boston.

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries

Bus Accident Lawyer

Buses transport thousands of people throughout Boston every day. Because buses are much larger and heavier than most other vehicles on the road, the force with which they strike other vehicles can result in serious injuries.

Because buses pose a significant safety threat, bus companies and bus drivers are held to a higher standard when crashes occur. If a bus driver acts negligently, you may be able to file a claim against the company for compensation. If bus parts fail, you may be able to file a claim against the designer or manufacturer of the faulty equipment.

At Kelly & Associates Injury Lawyers, we understand the many unique legal issues that arise with accidents involving school buses, charter buses, and buses operated by government entities. We will investigate your case thoroughly to find out what happened and who should be held liable.

Electric Scooter Accident Lawyer

While currently prohibited in Boston, electric scooters (or e-scooters) can be found in certain areas in Massachusetts and New England. E-scooters are becoming more common throughout the country because of their convenience. Riders can unlock the e-scooter with an app on their phone and ride them for as long as they desire.

But despite their conveniences, e-scooters are also very dangerous. Many people have suffered serious injuries after e-scooter accidents, especially head trauma.

Have you been injured in Massachusetts while riding an electric scooter? Our highly skilled personal injury attorneys are ready to advocate for you. Contact us to arrange an initial consultation. There’s no charge and no obligation.

Slip and Fall Lawyer

Slip and fall accidents are categorized in an area of law known as premises liability. Whether or not you have a viable case will depend on a range of factors, including what caused you to slip and whether or not the property owner had knowledge of the hazard.

Because these types of cases are complex and often difficult to prove, it’s critical that you contact the experienced Boston premises liability attorneys at Kelly & Associates Injury Lawyers as soon as you can after your accident.

Dog Bite Attorney

In Massachusetts, dog owners can be held liable when their dog bites or attacks someone. The owner of the dog is strictly liable for all personal injuries, scarring, or wrongful death caused by a dog attack. Because Massachusetts is a “strict liability” state, it’s not even necessary to prove that the animal has caused injuries before or that it is vicious.

Dog bites can cause serious physical trauma, such as puncture wounds, muscle tears, facial injuries, broken bones, eye injuries, neck injuries, and disfigurement. Dog attacks can also have serious emotional consequences, resulting in anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

There are some instances where dog owners may fight your dog bite claim. They may say that you were trespassing or provoking the animal in some way. Don’t worry. With “The Law Guys” at Kelly & Associates on your side, we’ll make sure that your claim has solid evidence to counter any arguments that the insurance company might throw your way.

Construction Accident Lawyer

There’s always a construction project happening in Boston. When someone is injured on or near a construction site, the owner, contractor or another third party may be held liable if the accident was due to negligence.

Construction is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. Construction sites are home to all kinds of heavy machinery, hazardous materials, electrical wiring, power tools, and other potential dangers. Unless these hazards are properly contained, they pose a risk to workers and any bystanders in the area.

Construction accidents can result in permanent disability, loss of limb, blindness, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, scarring, and many other injuries. Sadly, many accidents are fatal.

Worker’s compensation may cover some of the medical expenses and lost wages incurred after a construction accident. However, workers’ comp cannot always fully compensate an injured worker for their losses after a serious construction accident. There may be other options.

Although workers’ compensation laws prevent employees from filing a personal injury claim against their employers, it may be possible to pursue additional compensation if a third party (not your employer) is responsible for your injury. For example, if you were injured by a defective power tool, you might be able to file a lawsuit against the maker of that product.

Let a Boston construction accident lawyer at Kelly & Associates review your claim. We’ll fight for you to obtain the workers’ compensation you deserve and identify whether anyone else should be held liable for your injuries.

Elevator Accident Lawyer

People who live and work in Boston have the right to expect that elevators are safe and properly maintained. Most of the time, that’s true. However, a small percentage of elevator rides result in accidents or crashes, and severe injuries or even death occur.

At Kelly & Associates Injury Lawyers, our Boston elevator accident lawyers hold property owners, elevator manufacturers, and maintenance companies accountable whenever their negligence causes someone to suffer an injury. If you’ve been injured in an elevator accident in Boston, contact us to learn if you are entitled to compensation.

Boating Accidents

Boating is a tradition for many in the greater Boston area, both for business and pleasure. But boats can also be dangerous, especially when operated by a negligent individual. Common causes of boat accidents include operator error, inexperience, distracted driving, drunk driving, and speeding.

Holding Negligent Defendants Liable

At 1-800-Law-Guys, our experienced personal injury lawyers will determine the most effective legal strategy to pursue compensation for accident victims. Among the legal terms that often apply to personal injury cases are:

Negligence

An individual or business is negligent if it fails to exercise reasonable care and its actions cause harm to others. A negligent act may be unintentional. But you may still have a right to hold the at-fault party liable if you were injured as a result of the negligent act. Motorists, homeowners and businesses typically have liability insurance that covers injuries or wrongful deaths caused by negligence.

Strict Liability

Strict liability is a legal doctrine that applies typically to cases involving dangerous products and defective prescription drugs. A manufacturer, seller or distributor of a dangerous product may be held liable for the injuries caused regardless of whether the manufacturer took steps to prevent product defect.

Comparative Negligence

Massachusetts applies the legal doctrine of comparative negligence in personal injury accidents. If you were partly at fault in an accident that caused your injury, you may still seek compensation. But any award received would be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault.

Intentional and Reckless Misconduct

Some personal injuries are caused by malicious or intentional conduct such as violent attacks. Punitive damages may be awarded in some wrongful death cases to punish outrageous conduct.

Damages

Accident victims may be awarded compensation, known as damages, if they have suffered personal injuries or a loved one’s wrongful death as a result of the negligence of another individual or business.

Massachusetts’ law entitles individuals who sustain injuries caused by the fault of others to seek compensation for medical treatment, estimated future costs of medical care, damage to property such as a wrecked car as well as reimbursement of lost income and reduced earning capacity.

You will need an experienced truck accident attorney to stand up for you in dealings with the trucking company and its insurer.
