We have helped thousands of cases reach a resolution. Let us deal with all of the paperwork and hassles, while you rest and get back on your feet.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you understand how difficult it can make your daily life. Not only is your car in the shop, but you may very well be in pain, receiving both medical bills and phone calls from insurance companies. This can be overwhelming, and if this sounds like something you are going through, give us a call and we’ll take the load off your shoulders.
If you were in a car accident, you will probably have some medical bills. In Massachusetts, you must have $2,000 in medical bills to receive a pain and suffering settlement. We will get your medical bills paid and make sure you are reimbursed for lost wages, pain and suffering and permanent disability. We strive to return all phone calls as soon as humanly possible, because we understand how stressful this process can be.
Bicycle accidents are different from motor vehicle accidents in that you do not need insurance to ride a bike. If you are on a bicycle and struck by a vehicle, we can file a claim with the car insurance company. If you are a pedestrian injured by a person riding a bike, the bicyclist's homeowner's insurance will be billed.
Slip And Falls
When people slip or fall on someone else’s property, the first thing they feel is embarrassed. Often times, that embarrassment is then met with pain. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard from clients who have fallen and who afterwards mentioned that they felt embarrassed and then tried to leave as fast as they could. What people don’t realize is that there is often insurance coverage on property just in case someone does get hurt. Clients feel odd and uncomfortable about pursuing anything. However, what they don’t know is that you don’t have to sue the property owner to get your medical bills paid or receive a settlement. Our office can simply determine if there is insurance coverage and then communicate with the insurance company. There are usually no awkward or contentious circumstances, rather, our office would be negotiating with an insurance company that we have likely dealt with hundreds of time before. The process is relatively painless. No pun intended.
Clients who have been injured in some way by the result of medical care are often confused. Our clients normally are not doctors and can’t be sure if they have a case. In order to pursue a medical negligence claim you usually need either: (1) A report from the treating doctor indicating that the patient was injured by the doctor’s care; or (2) A report from a separate doctor indicating the patient was injured by the 1st doctor’s care. Many clients feel awkward about pursing a claim against a doctor or a hospital. This is understandable, but it is important to know that doctors and hospitals often have very large insurance policies to cover all of these claims.
Dog Bite Cases
In Massachusetts, there is statute which allows persons to recover for injuries caused by a dog bite. Dog bites can be particularly traumatic and often do require medical treatment. If you have been injured by a dog or any other animal, give us a call and we can talk about what your options are.
Victims of Crime
It's hard to imagine anything more difficult to deal with than being subjected to a criminal assault or having someone you love be the victim of a heinous crime. Our office is passionate about our representation of victims of violent crime. Attorney Faneuf is a proud member of the National Crime Victim Bar Association. There are many different components to consider on the legal front with respect to these serious cases, but nothing is more important than making sure our clients feel comfortable with our office's representation.
