Massachusetts Route 24 Highway Accident Attorney

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Attorneys, Serving Bristol, Plymouth, and Norfolk County

Truck Accidents LawyerHighway accidents typically tend to cause more severe injuries to passengers and drivers than accidents on roadways with lower speed limits and less traffic.  Highways are also where the highest number of severe, multiple vehicle pile-up accidents occur.

In Massachusetts, highway speed limits are between 55 and 65 mph.  Multiple studies have shown that the higher the speed limit, the greater the injuries sustained in accidents are, and increases the likelihood of drivers and passengers being involved in a fatal accident.  Road rage, distracted drivers, aggressive drivers, exhausted truck drivers, even the time of day and weather conditions, can all amplify the dangers of traveling at a high rate of speed.

Let Our Accident Lawyers Take On The Insurance Company For You

Our attorneys know how to take on reluctant insurance companies that may try to place blame on the wrong driver, deny or underpaying on accident claims.  In order to make a profit, insurance companies must pay out as little as possible and use a variety of tactics to do just that.

With more than thirty years’ experience helping accident victims, we understand the laws, can read an insurance policy, and will aggressively seek to hold all parties responsible for your accident accountable.

Financial compensation for a serious injury or even the unfortunate loss of a loved is not intended to place a dollar value on human life.  Compensation in insurance settlements and personal injury civil claims does help you find closure, and get compensation to help you to begin rebuilding your life.  If you were injured in a highway accident, or someone you love was in a fatal crash, we can help.

Contact our experienced trial lawyers for a free initial consultation.  We take accident cases on a contingency basis, that means you do not pay us anything unless we recover for you in a settlement or by a verdict.
