Q&A

Personal injury claims can be created when a person is injured in an incident by a person or group that acts negligently or recklessly, often while violating the law in some manner. If you were hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s actions or even targeted by violence, you may have a personal injury claim.

Common personal injury accidents include auto accidents, slip-and-falls, dog bites, medical malpractice and being harmed by a defective product. It may be obvious that your incident allows for a personal injury claim, or you may not be fully aware of whether it qualifies. Speaking with an attorney and collecting evidence concerning the incident will help you to better determine if you have a claim.

Once you believe that you have a claim, do not wait to begin taking action. The sooner you start to form a case, the better your chances are of success. Get in touch with an attorney and decide on a course of action for your case. Additionally, collect evidence from the scene of the incident, get in touch with people who witnessed your injury and undergo a medical examination if you have not done so already.

All of these pieces combined can create a strong and successful case that proves who injured you, how you were injured and what compensation you should receive. Knowing what to collect, how to present the evidence and how to deal with at-fault parties and their insurance providers is one of the many perks of working with a skilled attorney.

Knowing what to collect, how to present the evidence and how to deal with at-fault parties and their insurance providers is one of the many perks of working with a skilled attorney.

A personal injury case will seek compensation from the at-fault party for all losses that came from an injury. That includes any lost wages that resulted from being temporarily unable to work or unable to work ever again due to permanent disabilities. Proving how much you lost and how your ability to work has been impacted can result in full and fair compensation.In the event that you were injured while on the job, you can seek workers’ compensation benefits, which include the wages you have lost while unable to work. This will be paid by your employer and his or her insurance provider, easing the hardship of not being able to support yourself due to injury or illness.With the help of an attorney, you can understand who should be held responsible, whether there are multiple at-fault parties and what you will need to do to prove fault successfully.

In the aftermath of an accident, it is important that you get in contact with the insurance company of the person who harmed you as well as your own provider in order to establish a claim and make sure that the incident is recorded.

However, be aware that insurance companies and their representatives are focused on limiting or completely eliminating any sort of payments that they must give to you. As such, they will try to disprove your claim or get you to agree to a specific amount of compensation, which is likely far below what you truly deserve. If you agree, you will be unable to pursue more compensation in the future. Knowing what you should and should not say to an insurance company and what steps should be taken in order to have a successful claim is crucial to your success and recovery.

This is a question that clients often ask at their initial consultation. At this point in the process it is a question that is impossible to answer. Personal injury cases are complex by nature and require substantial analysis to evaluate.It is impossible for an attorney to give you a value until he or she has had a chance to examine every aspect of your case including its strengths and weaknesses. You also have to reach a medical end in regard to your accident related injuries. Experts are often necessary to evaluate clients with more serious or complex injuries. Be wary of an attorney who tells you what your case is worth or guarantees a specific result at your initial consultation.

Injury Types Commonly Found in Our Cases​

Head and Brain Injuries, TBI​

Brain injuries are often a byproduct of motor vehicle accidents, especially motorcycle accidents, but they can also occur in slip-and-fall accidents and other incidents. Likewise, brain injuries can vary in their severity; some allow a full recovery, while others such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can result in a need for lifetime care.

Even comparatively minor head and brain injuries can lead to massive medical costs. The Kiley Law Group has an extensive record of success in cases involving brain injuries, and we understand the expenses and long-term effects faced by victims and their families. Please contact us today for a free consultation with a knowledgeable attorney if you or a loved one sustained a head or brain injury in an accident caused by another.

Broken Bones​

Though full recovery from a broken or fractured bone is often possible, the recovery process may be painful, sustained and financially crippling. On some occasions, there may be lingering, chronic discomfort or other lasting effects that were not anticipated causing hardship long after the accident.

Catastropic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are those that cause severe, life-changing impairments for victims. These injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, paralysis, and severe burns.Catastrophic injuries affect both the victim and the victim’s family, and they can require costly, long-term medical care.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can cause severe and costly injuries, especially to children. In Massachusetts, dog owners may be held accountable for injuries and other damages related to dog bites. There are exceptions, however, including trespassing and abusing or otherwise unreasonably provoking the dog.

Paralysis

Paralysis typically occurs as a result of damage to the nervous system, such as that sustained in the impact of a traffic crash, and it causes a loss of muscle function and sensation in the affected area. Paralysis can be partial or full; though feeling and function can return in some instances, the effects are often permanent.

Due to the high costs of paralysis treatment, rehabilitation and long-term care, it’s important for injury victims and their families to understand their legal options if the injury was the result of another person’s negligence.

Burns

Burns are some of the most painful and serious injury types. Even first degree burns can cause medical complications that impact a claim. Burns can be of a light, thermal, chemical, or radiation type. In liability claims, burns are often involved in cases pertaining to product failures, workers’ compensation, premises liability, vehicle accidents, and more.

Paraplegia

Paraplegia is a frequent side-effect of spinal cord injuries, and it results in the loss of muscle function and feeling below the waist. In addition to new life challenges, those who suffer paraplegia due to an accident-related injury also face expensive emergency treatment and rehabilitation costs.

Spinal Cord Injury

Damage to the spinal cord can have serious consequences that are among the most difficult and expensive injuries to treat. The physical, financial and emotional impacts of these injuries can be tremendous. Spinal cord injuries are often categorized as complete or incomplete. A complete injury occurs when the spinal cord is severed, causing paralysis to areas of the body below the injury site; in an incomplete injury, the spinal cord is damaged, but there is still some sensation or motor function below the injury site.

Organ and Internal Damage

Organ and internal damage can result from both accidents involving traumatic impact such as a vehicle accident as well as from medical malpractice, surgical errors, bad prescription drugs, and defective medical devices.

Time is of the essence, and every extra minute can help us build an even stronger personal injury claim on your behalf.

Personal Injury Basics

The concept of personal injury law is simple: If you were hurt, or a loved one was killed, due to another’s negligence or recklessness, you have the right to hold them accountable and seek compensation for resulting damages. The process for recovering compensation, however, is more complex.

Insurance companies often attempt to limit what they pay, which leaves injury victims and their families uncertain of how to cover the full extent of their medical costs and any long-term rehabilitation.

This is why it’s advisable to discuss your situation with an experienced attorney who can help you understand your options and pursue just compensation on your behalf.

Even injuries that seem relatively minor can be accompanied by lasting effects that require costly medical treatment. And severe injuries can result in medical costs that are financially crippling without fair compensation.

Damages in personal injury cases may include money for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

Should the injuries result in death, family members may also be able to recover funeral and burial expenses through a wrongful death claim.
