Boston Accident Lawyer
Injuries can happen in any type of serious accident, and you deserve to be compensated if someone else caused your wounds. Get full compensation by working with a Boston accident lawyer.
Getting injured is often unexpected. When your injuries are substantial and you obtained them as a result of someone else’s negligence, things can quickly become complicated. The law is generally designed to protect accident victims and ensure that they receive the compensation they need to fully recover. Sadly, the path to recovering compensation isn’t always easy.
Whether your injury was sustained in a workplace accident, a motor vehicle crash, or anything in-between, it’s important to do everything you can to get the best outcome possible for your personal injury claim. Investing in the services of a Boston accident lawyer from Joel H. Schwartz, PC could make a world of difference in the success of your lawsuit.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Accidents involving motor vehicles are easily some of the most common types of incidents that result in some sort of injury. The most difficult part of any car accident is often getting the insurance company to provide you with the full value of your claim.
Massachusetts is a “no-fault” state when it comes to car accidents. Essentially, this means that regardless of who was at fault for the accident, you must first seek compensation from your own insurance policy. It isn’t uncommon for insurance companies to either attempt to deny a claim or offer a lower settlement than what your claim is actually worth.
Hiring a Boston accident lawyer can make this process much, much easier. We can successfully negotiate with your insurance adjuster and ensure that the offer you receive is one that is actually worthy of the damages you have suffered. And if your injuries entitle you to seek compensation beyond the no-fault system through a personal injury claim, we can help you build a compelling case that proves who was at fault for what happened.
Workplace accidents are particularly frustrating because it can be difficult to know if you can get more than just workers compensation. Some of the industries or areas where workplace accidents are most common include the following:
- Construction sites
- Healthcare providers
- Correctional facilities
- Factory workers
- Retail stores
Many accident victims are hesitant to move forward with filing a claim after they’ve sustained an injury on the job. They often fear they’ll face retaliation from their employer and possibly even put their job in jeopardy. Their employer may even outright request that they avoid filing a workers comp claim because they want to avoid an increase in their premiums.
Your Boston accident lawyer will ensure that you don’t fall prey to the pressures of your employer or an insurance company. We will help you file a claim in a timely and efficient manner, whether you need to work with the workers compensation system or have the option to file a personal injury claim.
Medical Malpractice Accidents
Accident cases involving medical malpractice are some of the most traumatic and can have some of the most severe repercussions. Generally, these injuries are brought about by the negligence of a medical care provider when the victim was in their care. Because the victim likely already had a health issue, the consequences of medical malpractice can easily be life threatening.
A common example of medical malpractice is when a healthcare provider fails to diagnose or treat a condition in a manner that would have prevented your injuries, disability, or death. In this case, your Boston accident lawyer will need to prove that a reasonable doctor in the same situation would have acted in a different way. We will need to prove that if it had not been for the doctor’s act of negligence, your condition would have otherwise been diagnosed or treated.
Another common example of medical negligence is errors that occur during surgery. This means that the surgeon did not carry out due diligence in keeping you safe while you were in his or her care. This can result in a permanent or semi-permanent disability, and might even involve the surgeon leaving a medical instrument inside your body.
Premises Liability Incidents
When you’re visiting a building or property that belongs to someone else—whether for business or private reasons—you have a right to safety. If a property owner left a hazard unaddressed and you suffered an injury because of it, you could have grounds for an injury claim seeking compensation.
Your Boston accident lawyer will need to build a case that shows how the property owner failed in his or her duty. The hazard involved in a premises liability case can take many forms, and these are just a few possible examples:
- Dog attacks
- Fires caused by faulty wiring
- Explosions caused by leaky gas pipes
- Ceiling collapse
