Personal Injury Law in Worcester

What We Practice in Worcester, MA

Here are our practice areas in Worcester, MA.

Car Accident

Car accidents happen every single day across Worcester – just ask our experienced auto accident attorneys. From rear-enders on Lincoln Street to multi-car pileups on I-190, we have seen the aftermath of it all. And while some crashes are truly unavoidable accidents, more often they occur because someone made a reckless, negligent choice:

  • Speeding down Park Ave
  • Blowing through a red light on Salisbury St
  • Texting instead of watching the road
  • Driving under the influence after leaving a bar

If you or a loved one was injured because of another driver’s careless actions, you need to act fast to protect your rights. Massachusetts law only gives you three years to take legal action in most cases. That may sound like plenty of time, but these cases are complex:

  • Gathering rock-solid evidence
  • Bringing in accident reconstruction experts
  • Calculating all your damages – medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering

The longer you wait, the harder it gets. Our Worcester car accident legal team will hit the ground running to build your strongest case from day one. We have secured millions of dollars for clients across the state and know how to take on the toughest opponents.

Whether it was a rear-end collision caused by distracted driving, a head-on crash from a drunk driver, or any other accident type caused by negligence, Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah has got your back. Contact us today for a free, no-obligation consultation from one of Worcester’s most tenacious accident injury law firms.

Truck Accidents

When a massive 18-wheeler collides with a passenger vehicle, the results are often catastrophic. Truck accidents in Worcester bring complicated legal challenges that require an experienced hand. Instead of just dealing with another driver, these cases frequently involve multiple companies – the trucking company, the loader, the cargo company, and more. Each has its own insurers and legal teams working against your interests.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Worcester truck crash, immediately contact Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah’s tenacious truck accident lawyers. We know how to deal with these complex cases, whether your wreck happened on I-290, Route 9, or the local streets. Do not assume the trucking companies and insurers will cooperate – they will do everything possible to deny your claim.

Our attorneys have gone head-to-head with some of the biggest trucking outfits, fighting tooth and nail to force them to take responsibility, including cases involving:

  • Speeding semi-trucks
  • Distracted or fatigued drivers
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded cargo
  • Lack of required maintenance
  • Violation of service hour regulations

We understand the unique challenges of truck accident cases inside and out. Our investigators will secure all available evidence from the scene and the truck’s data logs. We will analyze the driver’s history and the company’s safety practices. Expert witnesses, such as accident reconstructionists, will be consulted to strengthen your claim.

No matter how straightforward your case may seem, you can bet the trucking company will have lawyers combing through every detail to avoid liability. Do not try to take them on yourself – let Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah be the skilled legal advocate by your side. Our reputation for relentless representation precedes us, leading to elite results for truck accident victims across Worcester County.

Motorcycle Accident

For motorcycle enthusiasts in Worcester, few pleasures compare to cruising down Park Ave or hitting the open roads like Route 122 through Paxton. However, that freedom can turn into tragedy instantly when a negligent driver causes a severe bike crash.

At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, our Worcester motorcycle accident lawyers understand the biases and unfair assumptions injury victims often face. Insurance companies and jury members too often buy into the myth that the motorcyclist must have done something reckless to cause the collision. We know the truth – in most cases, the other vehicle operator’s inattention or disregard for motorcyclists leads to these devastating wrecks.

Our skilled legal team investigates every angle to establish the facts and prove you were operating your bike responsibly. We’ll analyze accident reports, camera footage, roadway conditions, and more to construct an indisputable claim. If the evidence shows the other driver was speeding, texting, driving impaired, or simply failing to yield right-of-way, we have the skill and experience to hold them fully accountable in settlement negotiations or at trial.

Unfortunately, negligent drivers often attempt to shift blame to the motorcyclist by claiming, “I didn’t see them.” That’s no excuse—all operators have a duty of care to remain aware of their surroundings, including watching for motorcycles, which have just as much right to the roads as any other vehicle. Inattentiveness and carelessness are not acceptable defenses for jeopardizing your life.

If you or a loved one was injured in a Worcester motorcycle crash through no fault of your own, don’t let anyone take advantage of you during this difficult time. The Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah motorcycle accident team will tenaciously protect your rights and fight to maximize your compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Pedestrian Accident

Walking around Worcester should be a simple, safe activity. But too often, negligent drivers turn this routine act into a life-threatening ordeal. Our pedestrian accident attorneys have witnessed the devastating consequences firsthand – serious injuries like:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Internal organ trauma

As pedestrians are completely exposed with no protective barrier, just one moment of driver inattention or recklessness can leave victims suffering from lasting impairments or disabilities.

Unfortunately, popular walking areas like Main Street, Park Avenue, and Franklin Street see their fair share of pedestrian crashes. The reasons are myriad but frequently involve drivers who are:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted by texting or other tasks
  • Impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Simply not watching for pedestrians

Crashes can also happen due to poor visibility caused by weather conditions or lighting. But regardless of the specific cause, pedestrians struck by vehicles face major hurdles to getting the compensation they deserve.

Insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid liability, dragging out claims or victim-blaming by saying the pedestrian was not paying attention. That is why you need a tenacious legal advocate who will vigorously protect your rights.

The Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah pedestrian accident team understands the complicated dynamics of these cases in Worcester and across Massachusetts. We conduct exhaustive investigations to gather all available evidence, such as surveillance footage, witness testimony, traffic/signal evidence, and more.

Our aggressive negotiation tactics, combined with our readiness to take pedestrian crash cases to trial, give our clients a formidable advantage over the insurance companies. We fight tirelessly to maximize your recovery for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damages.

If a negligent driver robbed you or a loved one of your sense of safety as a pedestrian, we are ready to step up and be the fearless legal warriors you need. Contact us today for a free consultation.

Medical Malpractice

When we seek medical care from Worcester’s hospitals and healthcare providers, we place enormous trust in their skilled hands. We rely on doctors, nurses, and other professionals to properly diagnose our conditions, recommend the appropriate treatments, and adhere to the highest standards of care and safety protocols.

However, medical negligence, like missed diagnoses, surgical errors, medication mistakes, and failure to follow proper procedures, can shatter that trust and leave patients significantly worse off than before. The physical, emotional, and financial consequences of medical malpractice can be utterly devastating.

At Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah, our Worcester medical malpractice lawyers understand how daunting it can feel to take on large healthcare systems and their insurers alone. That is why our veteran litigators stand ready to be your aggressive legal advocates, relentlessly pursuing the accountability and compensation you deserve.

Our team has secured hard-fought victories in numerous types of medical negligence cases, including:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose life-threatening conditions
  • Surgical errors like operating on the wrong body part
  • Prescribing incorrect medications or dosages
  • Neglecting to order essential diagnostic tests
  • Birthing injuries to mothers and newborns
  • Nursing home abuse or neglect

No matter how straightforward or complex your situation may seem, we conduct meticulous investigations to gather all supporting evidence and expert testimony. Our deep bench of medical experts ensures we can counter any defense arguments.

We are not intimidated by prestigious hospitals or large insurance companies—we see it as our role to be persistent advocates righting an unjust wrong on your behalf. The Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah medical malpractice team takes pride in being compassionate counselors who guide you through this traumatic experience while also proving tenacious courtroom warriors when negotiations break down.

If you or a loved one was a victim of medical negligence in the Worcester area, getting skilled legal representation is crucial.

Workplace Accident

When you clock in for an honest day’s work, you should not have to fear suffering a life-altering injury. Yet, workplace accidents are too common across Massachusetts’ construction sites, factories, warehouses, and other job sites. If you or a loved one was hurt in a preventable on-the-job incident, the Worcester workplace accident attorneys at Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah are prepared to vigorously defend your rights.

Our legal team has spent decades immersed in the state’s workers’ compensation laws and personal injury statutes. We know exactly:

  • What evidence to gather, from accident reports to safety logs
  • Which expert witnesses to consult, like occupational safety specialists
  • How to calculate all the damages you’ve incurred and future costs
  • When to negotiate a settlement vs. taking your case to trial

While all employees can file for workers’ comp regardless of fault, these benefits often don’t cover the full extent of losses from a serious injury. If your accident was caused by a non-employer third party like:

  • A negligent subcontractor
  • A defective product or machinery
  • A property owner’s failure to maintain safe conditions

You may have grounds to pursue additional compensation beyond just workers’ comp. Preparing these complex third-party claims requires skilled legal handling from day one.

From industrial machine incidents to construction falls, the Altman Nussbaum Shunnarah workplace injury team has battled virtually every type of on-site accident case imaginable. We explore every possible avenue for maximum recovery, leaving no stone unturned in our pursuit of justice.

Don’t let deep-pocketed corporations or insurers take advantage of you during this difficult time. Our Client-First approach means you’ll always receive our full attention, with attorneys available 24/7 to address your questions and concerns.

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.
