With my decades of legal experience, I am highly adept at negotiating settlements, as well as obtaining favorable awards at trial.

How to prove negligence in a pedestrian accident case
Pedestrians typically bear the financial, physical and emotional brunt of an accident and frequently experience severe injuries. In order to recover compensation, you must show the driver was negligent. The law says negligence exists when:
- A driver has a duty to act safely and avoid harming others
- The driver failed to uphold this duty
- This failure resulted in an accident
- The accident caused your injuries
Assembling and effectively presenting the evidence needed to show these elements exist is key to winning your case, and I have a long track record of producing favorable results for my clients.
Is an owner always responsible for a dog bite injury?
Most dogs are well-behaved and non-aggressive, but the risk of being bitten always exists. The laws on an owner’s liability vary throughout New England, with some states imposing strict liability for any injury, regardless of the circumstances, and others assigning responsibility in instances of negligent failure to control a pet or bites by an animal with a history of aggressive tendencies. These cases can be complex, and I will explain how the law may impact your case.
What damages can you recover in a motor vehicle accident?
The costs of a serious car crash are typically beyond the financial means of most people. By filing a claim with the help of a seasoned lawyer, you may be able to recover damages for the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Pain and suffering
Accurate damage calculations are central to every accident case, and I will take the time to understand the full scope of your injuries.
What are common causes of vehicle rollovers?
A vehicle rollover involves a car tipping on its side or the roof of the car. These accidents can produce catastrophic injuries and involve multiple causes. Factors commonly associated with these collisions include:
- Bad weather conditions
- Sudden jerking of the wheel
- Multi-vehicle accidents
- Unstable, top-heavy vehicles
Quick and direct legal action is important to preserve pertinent evidence and fully enforce your rights, and I will use every available legal option to fight for your interests.
Who may be liable in trucking accidents?
Many individuals and entities are involved in commercial trucking operations, and consequently, multiple parties can share legal responsibility for a trucking accident. As examples, the trucking company, truck owner, maintenance company and cargo loader all perform key functions and could be potentially liable if they acted negligently or improperly. Detailed investigations are necessary to assess liability, and I have extensive experience creating strong claims for trucking accident injuries.
