Waltham Personal Injury Lawyer

The city of Waltham, Massachusetts is located in Middlesex County and is part of the Greater Boston Area. With a population of approximately 60,000, it is a busy community with several distinct neighborhoods and commercial districts. In addition, it is home to Brandeis University and Bentley University, as well as several large employers. Waltham is close to several major eastern Massachusetts thoroughfares, including the Massachusetts Turnpike and Interstate 95. The Charles River runs through Waltham, and there are many opportunities for land-based recreation as well. In addition, there are two Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) commuter rail stops in Waltham, and the city is also serviced by several MBTA bus lines.

Like many other towns and cities in the area, Waltham is a lively town that has a high level of commercial activity. In addition, many people who live and work in Waltham may commute to Boston or other communities nearby. The presence of several employers and schools also ensures that there are people consistently coming and going from the city, interacting with each other along the way. Whenever people are traveling, interacting, shopping, or engaging in almost any everyday activity, there is an inherent risk that a preventable accident will occur.

Massachusetts tort law allows people who are injured by the negligence of other people or parties to recover for their losses. After an accident, it is important for victims to discuss their options with an attorney, as insurance companies and other parties often try and limit their liability by offering an unreasonably low settlement in exchange for an agreement not to sue. Causes of action for a personal injury lawsuit can come from a variety of accidents and injuries, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Injuries to children
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Boating accidents
  • Birth injuries
  • Construction accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Sports accidents
  • Dangerous property condition accidents

These examples are representative of the types of cases personal injury attorneys handle, and the list is not meant to be exclusive. People injured in preventable accidents in Waltham may be eligible for compensation for both economic and noneconomic losses, including present and future medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, disfigurement, lost income, loss of enjoyment of life, among others.
