Boston Personal Injury Law

Some Practice Areas Our Boston Lawyers Can Assist With:

Personal Injury

Given how unpredictable life can be, our Boston personal injury attorneys recognize the fragility of physical and mental well-being. A severe injury has the power to alter the entire trajectory of one’s life. We stand as advocates for individuals and their families who have endured serious injuries or fatalities due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of others.

Contrary to what many think, personal injuries in Boston do not just involve physical pain, as they also cause emotional and financial hardships. Loss of work, medical bills, and stress on families are common challenges. Our commitment is to alleviate this stress by confronting insurance companies and negligent parties and have them compensate you for all damages in Boston. This allows you to concentrate on your family and future. 

While anyone can sustain life-altering injuries due to negligence, certain groups are more vulnerable. Children and the elderly, in particular, face higher risks of catastrophic injuries, especially those resulting from falls. The reasons for vulnerability differ.

In the case of children, injuries can have cumulative effects, including trauma to the brain, head trauma, or oxygen deprivation. This leads to long-term cognitive and developmental disabilities. Broken bones may impact physical growth, and organ damage could necessitate a transplant. 

For the elderly, the risks are twofold. Aging bodies become more brittle, and additional risks emerge with medical treatments. This is why nursing home abuse and negligence are particularly insidious. Those entrusted with caring for vulnerable family members can inadvertently increase the risk of pain, suffering, and even fatal injuries. At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, we are dedicated to addressing these issues. We advocate for your rights and provide unwavering support on the path to justice and recovery.

Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents can have life-altering or fatal consequences. Motorcyclists, who lack the protection of traditional vehicles, face significant risks. If you or a loved one is involved in a motorcycle accident in Boston, the resulting medical bills can be substantial. It is crucial to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage in such cases.

At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, our Boston personal injury lawyers are here to fight for you if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident. With several decades of experience representing injured riders in Boston, we are dedicated to handling insurance companies and all legal matters. This gives you time to focus on recovery.

If another driver is at fault in your motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to damages, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Our Boston motorcycle accident lawyers meticulously review all available motor vehicle insurance coverages, examining both the at-fault driver’s policy and your own. We gather evidence to secure the maximum possible award while considering your short- and long-term medical and financial needs. No matter the circumstances of your motorcycle crash, our attorneys work closely with you to ensure your rights are upheld throughout the process.

Uber/ Lyft / Rideshare Accident

In Boston and across Massachusetts, rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have become popular modes of transportation. However, when accidents happen during a rideshare trip or involve an Uber or Lyft contractor, managing the legal aspects of compensation can be challenging. At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, we specialize in assisting rideshare accident victims in securing the rightful compensation they deserve.

Common causes of rideshare accidents in Boston include:

  • Distracted driving: Drivers focused on maximizing earnings may divert attention from the road while trying to secure their next fare.
  • Fatigue: Many individuals work for Uber or Lyft as a supplementary income. This leads to potential fatigue as they balance long work hours or try to squeeze in extra rides without proper rest.
  • Reckless driving: Speeding or violating traffic rules to complete rides quickly poses risks to passengers and other road users.

Regardless of the circumstances that led to your rideshare accident, our Boston Lawyers are dedicated to advocating for the compensation you are entitled to. At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, we are prepared to fight for your rights and work towards ensuring you receive the payment you deserve.

Auto Accident

Car accidents in Boston can result in devastating injuries, financial strain, and heightened stress. When another driver’s negligence leads to a collision, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, we comprehend the challenges posed by car accidents and the difficulties of dealing with injuries, insurance matters, and legal proceedings. Our experienced Boston car accident attorneys have decades of expertise representing victims and have secured millions in trial verdicts and settlements.

Under Massachusetts law, victims can claim compensation, or “damages,” for various losses, including:

  • Medical bills: Coverage for necessary medical expenses arising from the accident.
  • Lost earnings: Compensation for income lost due to the accident and related recovery.
  • Scarring and disability: Addressing permanent disfigurement or disability resulting from the accident.
  • Pain and suffering: Seeking compensation for physical and emotional distress caused by the accident.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: Addressing the impact of the accident on the victim’s overall quality of life.
  • Loss of consortium: Compensation for the loss of companionship or support experienced by family members.

In the unfortunate event of a fatal car crash, or if a loved one succumbs to injuries, Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah can pursue a wrongful death claim in Boston. This includes additional damages covering burial and funeral expenses. When you choose our firm, your primary focus can be on healing while we handle the legal side of your case.

Pedestrian Accident

If you find yourself injured in a pedestrian crash in Boston, it is important to understand your legal right to compensation. Seeking assistance from an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer in Boston is crucial. Look for someone with not only a track record of settling cases but also a history of going to trial in pedestrian crash cases, especially those involving catastrophic injuries or fatalities.

At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, our pedestrian accident lawyers bring several decades of experience consistently achieving superb settlements and verdicts for our clients. We will find out the facts, aggressively negotiate with insurance companies, and, when necessary, file suits and take pedestrian accident cases to trial.

Many pedestrian accidents are caused by drivers who speed, fail to yield, or are distracted. Drunk drivers often result in serious or fatal injuries to pedestrians, and hit-and-run incidents, constituting 20.5% of pedestrian fatalities according to AAA, are unfortunately common. Most pedestrian accidents occur in the evening or night hours.

These incidents can happen while crossing streets, walking along the side of roads, or in various locations like parking lots and even within crosswalks. Pedestrians can be injured by cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, and sometimes emergency vehicles. Unfortunately, most pedestrians get hit near schools, where a 20 mph speed limit is mandated by law. Drivers are obligated to stop for school buses, ensuring the safety of students who need to cross busy streets.

Our client reviews attest to the thoroughness, tenacity, and compassion of our representation in pedestrian crash accidents. When insurance companies see Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, they recognize that your case will be handled the right way. We take care of every aspect of your pedestrian crash case and ensure you get the desired results.

Wrongful Death

Our Boston attorneys at Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah stand as advocates for individuals and families who have lost loved ones through wrongful death. A wrongful death in Boston inflicts both emotional and financial hardship on family members, often accompanied by a period of pain and suffering. This can be compensable.

We recognize that accidents forever alter lives, causing severe emotional damage and devastating economic losses. Wrongful death can result from various circumstances, including car accidents, defective products, and construction site incidents, among others. Our Boston wrongful death attorneys undertake effective, aggressive investigations and provide representation throughout the city.

Massachusetts laws governing wrongful death cases are complex, but our attorneys are committed to breaking them down for you in a consultation. The law strictly defines who may recover damages, typically including the spouse, children, and sometimes parents or siblings of the victim. Claims must be initiated through the estate of the deceased relative and filed by the estate’s personal representative.

In cases where the death results from a “willful, wanton, or reckless act,” the responsible party can be held liable for punitive damages. At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, we approach wrongful death cases with sensitivity, offering support and strategic representation required to get through the complex legal system. We are always ready to pursue justice for our clients.

Truck Accidents 

Truck accidents in Boston stand out as some of the most challenging and impactful incidents. They often result in life-changing injuries and impose substantial financial burdens on victims. However, the law provides a pathway for victims to seek compensation for the losses they have incurred. 

At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, we are staunch advocates for truck accident victims in Boston. With a wealth of experience and the resources to tackle the toughest and most complex claims, we dedicate ourselves to your cause when you are injured. When you choose us, you can rest assured that your case will be handled with the best in business. 

Truck accidents are particularly dangerous for several reasons:

  • Size and weight: Trucks, due to their size and weight, can cause severe damage and injuries in collisions with smaller vehicles.
  • Stopping distance: Trucks require longer stopping distances, increasing the risk of rear-end collisions or an inability to stop in time.
  • Blind spots: Trucks have larger blind spots. This makes it challenging for drivers to see smaller vehicles, especially during lane changes.
  • Driver fatigue: Long hours on the road can lead to driver fatigue. Fatigued drivers have impaired reaction times, which increase the likelihood of accidents.
  • Complex regulations: The trucking industry is subject to complex regulations. Violations of these regulations can contribute to accidents. This makes legal expertise crucial in such cases.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Head injuries can have severe consequences on your health. Car accidents, especially those involving drunk driving, are common causes of traumatic brain injuries. Massachusetts law acknowledges the impact of head injuries, allowing victims to seek damages from responsible parties. Recoverable damages may include;

  • Medical expenses: Recoverable damages cover all costs related to medical care for traumatic brain injuries. This includes expenses for emergency treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical needs.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation is provided for the intangible impact of traumatic brain injuries, addressing both physical pain and emotional distress experienced by the victim.
  • Lost wages: Recoverable damages acknowledge the disruption in employment caused by the injury, ensuring compensation for the actual income lost during the recovery period.
  • Future earning capacity: In cases where traumatic brain injuries lead to long-term or permanent impairment, recoverable damages consider the potential impact on the victim’s ability to earn in the future.

At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, our Boston attorneys stand ready to represent individuals throughout Massachusetts who have endured head injuries. Serious head and brain injuries are life-changing and painful and often necessitate extensive rehabilitation. We believe that individuals should not bear the responsibility for losses and damages caused by an injury that wasn’t their fault. Our personal injury lawyers in Boston are dedicated to providing assistance in such challenging times.

Yes. Each state has laws that provide time limits to formally file a lawsuit or claim.

Personal injury cases are incidents in which injuries or deaths have occurred as a result of another’s carelessness, recklessness or intentional wrongdoing. The other person’s negligence may be the result of a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall or many other possible events.

The length of a case, from the initial free consultation through to the resolution of the case by settlement or jury verdict, depends on several variables, so it is not possible to say exactly how long a case may take. The duration of a case is often dictated by the individual court in which the case is filed. Some courts designate a time period for discovery of evidence by each party that may be a year or longer. Other courts have a backlog of cases and therefore, the oldest cases in a county will be considered before a more recently filed case. Though some cases do settle before going to court, a settlement would not usually occur until just before the scheduled trial.
