Boston Personal Injury Lawyer
Helping You Claim What You Are Owed
When you or someone close to you is injured for any reason, it can be draining to your emotions and finances. No one enjoys being hurt or witnessing the pain of a loved one. These difficult feelings can be magnified when the injuries would not have occurred had it not been for the negligence of another person. When we know that someone else is responsible for the injuries, it creates a drive for accountability and for obtaining some sort of repayment.
While nothing can be done to turn back time and erase the actual injury, damages including financial and emotional ones can be partially compensated through a personal injury claim. The laws of personal injury have been established in order to great a legal platform for injured victims to obtain some sort of justice from the person responsible.
Every personal injury case is unique, with its own set of characteristics that set it apart. Depending on the severity of your accident or the injury you suffered as a result of negligence, the compensation you are entitled to can vary significantly. More importantly, the expertise of a skilled
Boston personal injury attorney can dramatically increase the amount of compensation for damages you recover after a loss.

What types of damages can we recover for personal injury cases?
As stated, no one can undo the suffering that you or your loved one have gone through, in fact you may experience long-term effects from the injury due to the accident you were in. Whether it was a car accident caused by a drunk or
distracted driver, or it was a disastrous
construction accident that caused the
injury, a Boston personal injury attorney from our firm is here to help you receive the damages that you deserve. There are a number of "damages" that a victim or their family may receive after an accident. This list includes compensatory (dollar value for injury) types of damages:
- Medical expenses- this compensation includes any medical costs from the accident and possible medical needs for the future.
- Lost wages- an injury (permanent or not) may possibly cause the victim and the family to experience lost wages due to time off of work and will take into account the loss of ability to work in the future if the injury was long-term.
- Cost of living with a disability- if the injury had long-term effects, the victim may have to quit working, and change their lifestyle completely (if they are in a wheelchair, for example).
- Property damages- this may include the destroyed car from the accident or anything else that was damaged in the accident.
- Funeral costs- If the family lost their loved one in a wrongful death accident, the damages will also cover the associated costs of the funeral as well.
- Pain and suffering- though an injury or death cannot have a price tag, this will be compensation for the emotional distress the victim/family have experienced.
- Loss of consortium- some accidents may have life-changing effects that harms their marital and other social relationships
These damages are what the court will consider to be the price tag for the damages (compensatory) that the victim has suffered. Another type of damage that the judge may have the defendant pay is punitive damages, which is a means of punishment by way of money. When seeking compensation, the case may be settled out of court, or we will take the defendant before the judge and fight for a more favorable verdict. Our firm is prepared for both possibilities for your case!
