Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle in Saugus, MA
Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help with all sorts of injury cases. While you might have experienced an injury outside of these categories – or you might not be sure what kind of accident your case falls into –our Saugus personal injury attorneys may still be able to help with your injury case.
Car accidents are some of the most common ways that people face serious injuries. While many cases result in loss of life or permanent injuries like brain injuries and paralysis, most result in minor or moderate injuries. In any case, you still deserve full compensation, and sometimes you have to file in court to get the compensation you need.
If you are hit by a large truck or some other commercial vehicle, your auto accident case could be more complex. There may be trucking companies you can sue to hold them responsible for their drivers’ actions. Doing so could ultimately mean higher payouts but a more complex case. Our Saugus personal injury lawyers can help hold even the largest trucking and shipping companies responsible for your injuries.
Slip and Falls
Slip and fall injuries are another one of the most common ways people are injured. These cases can be surprisingly serious, especially for disabled people, children, or older adults, who might be more prone to serious injuries in a fall. If you faced broken bones, brain injuries, back injuries, or any other injuries after a slip and fall, our Saugus personal injury lawyers can help.
Premises Liability Injuries
Slip and falls fit into this category of injury, but many other injuries on other people’s property also fit into this category of premises liability injuries. These injuries can include anything from shelves in a store falling on top of you to balcony collapses or even things like fires and electrocution injuries. These cases can often involve serious, long-term injury, but minor to moderate injuries are more common. Either way, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve from a negligent property owner.
Defective and dangerous products are responsible for many household and industrial injuries. If you were hurt by a defective appliance or tool, or even a defective toy, call our Saugus personal injury lawyers right away. We may be able to get compensation from the negligent manufacturer or producer of the product.
Injuries during medical treatment are sometimes necessary, such as an incision during surgery. Because you consent to these injuries, they are allowed. However, that does not give a doctor free rein to do whatever they want during surgery. Surgical mistakes can often result in serious injuries, as can misdiagnosis, prescription errors, and other examples of medical malpractice. These cases are often complex, so it is best to work with an attorney who has experience with complicated fact patterns and difficult cases.
Many workplace injuries must be filed through the Workers’ Compensation system in Massachusetts. Many injury attorneys do not work with clients who have to file through Workers’ Compensation, but our attorneys handle both personal injury lawsuits and Workers’ Compensation claims for our injured clients. If you were hurt at work, call our Saugus personal injury attorneys today to discuss the best way of filing your case to maximize the compensation you are entitled to.
Getting Compensation for Injuries in Saugus, MA
In some cases, the person responsible for your injuries may be willing to settle out of court and pay you what they owe you for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, most cases do not work out so quickly and easily. Instead, many cases involve insurance companies who fight to protect their bottom lines and pay out as little as they can. These insurance companies might also simply refuse payment or refuse to admit that their policyholder was at fault for an accident.
This is where a personal injury lawyer comes in. Our Saugus personal injury attorneys can help during negotiation to press the defense into settling your case at a fair rate. Many early settlement offers are low and do not cover your case in full and should be avoided at all costs. Our lawyers can work from there to push the settlement amount upward in your case.
If settlement is not possible and the defendant refuses to cooperate with our lawyers, we can press the case in court. At trial, the judge or jury determines how much your case is worth. It can be a big help to have a neutral jury decide your case instead of leaving things to interested insurance adjusters.
