Areas of Law Description
- Bicycle Accidents
Unfortunately, many motorists fail to keep an appropriate look out for bicyclists traveling on our roads. Both adults and children on bicycles may suffer death and serious injuries as a result of the powerful forces which occur as a result of an impact between a motor vehicle and a bike.
- Bus Accident
If you have been injured or suffered damages as a result of a bus accident in Massachusetts, whether you were a passenger of the bus, a pedestrian, or a passenger or driver of another vehicle which was involved in a collision with a bus, you may be able to receive compensation for your damages in a claim against the bus company.
- Truck Accident
From the truck accident victimís perspective, the biggest difference concerns the severity of the injuries: permanent or disabling brain trauma, spinal cord damage or widespread orthopedic problems are the common results of a collision with a 40-ton semi rig. The financial recovery necessary to support an extended or permanent disability might approach or exceed seven figures.
- Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents can cause serious catastrophic injuries and even death. Pedestrian accidents are complicated, however, because there can be many causes or factors as to why such an accident has occurred. Drivers of motor vehicles can be held accountable for the accidents that they cause and their negligence can be rooted in many factors.
- Motorcycle Accident
Because of the severe injuries typical of motorcycle accidents ó multiple fractures, facial injuries, traumatic brain injury or permanent spinal cord damage ó the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney is essential. You need the counsel of a lawyer who can investigate and prove the facts that establish both the liability of the defendant and the extent of your damages.
- Car Accidents
At the law office of Peter Ventura, Attorney at Law, we handle car accident cases of all kinds ó the soft-tissue injuries that could keep you away from work for a few weeks, and the very serious and sometimes catastrophic injury cases which involve permanent injuries and lifelong problems and consequences. We routinely examine all sources of compensation for every claim including the other driverís liability insurance, and even the clientís own underinsured motorist coverage and any other sources of compensation available to satisfy the clientís damages.
- Distracted Driver Accident
Today, using a cell phone or texting is commonplace. However, evidence is overwhelming that drivers on cell phones or drivers who text are much more likely to have an accident. Drivers who are inattentive and distracted due to cell phone use and texting often cause catastrophic injuries as well as fatal car accidents.
- Drunk Driver Accident
Throughout the United States, there are many accidents that are caused by drunk, intoxicated, and impaired drivers. Victims of drunk drivers, individuals, and their families, may pursue rights to legal compensation against the drunk driver and any other negligent parties.
Damages caused by a drunk driver may include compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, as well as past and future pain and suffering. Passengers of cars driven by drunk drivers can also suffer significant injuries in an accident and passengers similarly have rights to compensation as well.
- Head-On Collision
While there are a variety of ways in which a person can be injured in a motor vehicle accident, head-on collisions tend to be among the most dangerous and likely to produce catastrophic, if not sometimes result in a fatal car accident. Simply put, when two motor vehicles collide head-on, even at moderate speeds, the force and energy transfer can often produce serious if not devastating injuries.
- High Speed Collision and Speeding Accident
Sometimes speeding is the sole cause of motor vehicle collisions, and quite often it is at least a contributing factor. Speeding affects a driverís ability to assess distances as well as the time it takes to perform a particular driving maneuver. Speeding also affects the space or distance that is needed to stop a vehicle. Speeding also reduces a driverís reaction time to avoid another motorist. Speeding also increases the likelihood of accidents on roads that are congested, as well as on roads that are unusually designed with difficult curves and grades.
- Highway Accident
Massachusetts highway collisions often result in serious injuries or fatalities, especially due to the higher vehicle speeds that are involved on such roadways. Such accidents require prompt and professional investigation. Under some circumstances, for example, if tractor trailers are involved, the investigative work performed and documents created by federal and state law enforcement and transportation officials will be important.
- Hit & Run Accident
Hit and run accident cases all involve the same common theme whereby an operator of a motor vehicle accident leaves the scene of the accident without identifying himself or herself. Ordinarily if an accident is caused by an identifiable driver who has insurance, a claim can be made against the driverís insurance company. However, if there is no identifiable driver and insurance company to pursue a claim against, an injured person nevertheless may have rights to compensation from his or her own automobile insurance policy which provides legal compensation for this type of risk.
- Rear-End Collision
Rear-end collisions are probably the most common type of motor vehicle accident. Rear-end collisions can be caused by drivers who are speeding because they are in a hurry, or traveling too closely behind another vehicle, or who are inattentive or distracted.
Rear-end accidents can occur because drivers may be under the influence of alcohol or not paying attention because they are using a cell phone or are texting. Even road conditions such as ice or snow can affect the ability of a driver to stop in a safe and timely manner.
- Side-Impact Crash
Side-impact collisions, also called T-bone collisions, refer to accidents in which a vehicle is struck on the side by another vehicle. Due to the biomechanics of injury associated with these accidents, these kinds of cases create great risk of serious injury because an occupant of the vehicle which is struck is generally subject to considerable forces in which an occupant is minimally protected.
- SUV and Roll Over Accident
Large and small trucks, SUVís, and other kinds of top heavy vehicles are often involved in serious motor vehicle accidents. Sometimes commercial truck drivers and other large tractor trailer trucks are operated negligently and can cause serious and even catastrophic accidents.
- Work-Related Injury
People who get hurt at work usually have some awareness of their rights under Massachusetts workersí compensation law, but they donít always know about their potential claims for personal injury damages from sources other than the employer. In general, negligence by a non-employer third party can often support a personal injury lawsuit separate from a workersí comp claim, but itís not always easy to identify the facts that indicate the third partyís negligence. The advice of an experienced work injury lawyer can help you understand the full range of your rights after an accident at work.
- Premises Liability
As a general rule, property owners and building management have an obligation to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition for tenants, customers, visitors and passers-by. At the same time, people are generally responsible for watching their step. Massachusetts premises liability law defines the rights and responsibilities of owners and everyone else to share space safely.
- Sports or Recreational Activities
Assumption of risk and waivers of liability make it difficult to recover damages for most injuries suffered through team sports, but many people get hurt while swimming, diving, boating, biking or skiing, and negligence often plays a major role in such accidents. For example, if you hurt your ankle sliding into second base, thereís probably no cause of action. If you get badly cut by broken glass in center field, however, you may have a claim against the owner of the ballpark.
- Medical Malpractice
The law office of Peter Ventura, Attorney at Law, advises and represents people who suspect that a serious injury or death in the family was caused by negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse or hospital. Massachusetts medical malpractice attorney Peter Ventura has the legal knowledge and courtroom skill necessary to investigate, document and present your claim for damages.
- Wrongful Death
Worcester wrongful death attorney Peter Ventura works with the surviving families of fatal accident victims in central Massachusetts and Metro West. His objective is to help protect the future financial security of the family through wrongful death litigation while offering practical support through a difficult time of transition.
- Product Liability
Manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers of consumer, automotive or industrial products can all be held accountable if their products turn out to be unsafe for their intended uses. If you have been injured by a defect in the design, production or assembly of a product, or if the manufacturer should have warned of certain hazards inherent in the product, our law firm can investigate the facts and pursue your rights against any and all responsible parties.
- Construction and Job Site Accident
In the construction industry, however, it is common for injury accidents to result from the negligence of someone unrelated to the injured workerís employer. As a result, construction workers often have the right to pursue both workersí compensation benefits and personal injury damages in separate proceedings resulting from the same accident.
- Accident Insurance Claim
Sometimes, it is necessary to file a lawsuit, however, if your case can be settled without filing a time consuming lawsuit we will let you know. However, in some relatively simple cases involving minor damages, we may be able to recover fair compensation in a settlement agreement.
- Insurance Bad Faith
Itís hard to practice personal injury law for 25 years without learning quite a lot about the insurance claims process. Massachusetts policy coverage dispute lawyer Peter Ventura helps people understand their rights, avoid mistakes and resolve problems under many different policies: auto insurance, homeowners insurance, health insurance or disability insurance.
- Head and Brain Injuries
In severe traumatic brain injury cases, we work with both medical experts and rehabilitative therapy specialists in order to document and present detailed evidence of what treatment and support you will need to recover from your injuries or live with a disability. Additionally, in closed head injury cases, where the symptoms of brain trauma might be less obvious, we make sure that your injuries are discovered, supported by clear evidence and included in your demand for damages.
- Orthopedic Injury
A broken bone can be a major traumatic injury and a complete recovery is by no means something to take for granted. Leg bone fractures may require multiple surgeries, a lengthy and painful recovery process, and some types of fractures can result in permanent partial disability. Arm fractures are also serious and can cause you to lose work time (loss of income) while you recover, or you may even need to hire someone to help you in your daily life until you are back on your feet.
- Spinal and Spinal Cord Injury
Many car or truck accidents cause serious trauma to soft tissues in the neck or back, which can require extensive chiropractic treatment, physical therapy or even surgery to correct. Sometimes bulging, ruptured or herniated discs are misdiagnosed as strains or sprains during emergency treatment. Work-related back or neck injuries are often underdiagnosed.
