Types of Personal Injuries

Injured victims not only deal with pain, suffering and disability, but they also face a myriad of financial concerns. After sustaining such an injury, you may be unable to work, or find that you owe a significant amount of money in medical expenses. As a victim, your only recourse may be to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries. With a successful lawsuit, you can recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage and emotional trauma.

Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is the stretching of the neck muscles- often a result from the sudden force of an accident swinging the head side to side.   

Neck, back or spinal cord injury or disc injury.

Spinal Cord Injuries happen suddenly but often have life-changing implications. Here's how to build a strong case to get the compensation you deserve.

Nerve Damage

Nerve damage causes some of the worst pain a human being can experience, but proving in a personal injury case is difficult for these reasons.

A broken bone can be a major traumatic injury and a complete recovery is by no means something to take for granted.

Electrocution or electric shock.

A single electrical injury can lead to disability or even death. Find out more about your legal options after electrical injuries in Massachusetts.
