Those who have suffered physical or emotional harm caused by someone else might be able to claim financial compensation for personal injury. Thomas & Wickenheiser, LLC knows how such injuries can cause stress and suffering to the injured individuals and their families, and we provide comprehensive counsel to personal injury victims in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
With decades of combined experience, our attorneys work closely with clients to understand the facts of what happened, explain the law, and guide them through the process of pursuing a claim. Our goal is to help our clients recover medical costs, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering.
Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by various circumstances, including medical errors, car crashes, sports activities, and falls. A blow to the head might not reveal its effects immediately, but it can result in long-term damage from which it is difficult or impossible to fully recover. No matter if the wound appears minor or is obviously serious from the start, our compassionate attorneys will look closely at the factors that caused the resulting traumatic brain injury and guide our clients and their families through the process of seeking compensation.
Very serious personal injuries may result in death, which might happen immediately or after a period of suffering. When the family believes someone’s negligence or intentional acts is at fault for the wrongful death of their loved one, they can make claims for compensation. While no amount of money can replace the person you loved, you can trust Thomas & Wickenheiser to work hard to ensure you collect damages for any medical expenses, funeral expenses, unearned income, and the companionship that was lost.
Motor Vehicle Accidents result in various types of personal injuries. Driving in traffic, crossing the street, or an ordinary day running errands can result in an accident that leaves a victim seriously injured. We review the circumstances of every case to determine the best course of action in establishing a claim.
Our attorneys also represent victims of dog bites. Pet owners are liable for the harm that their animal inflicts on an adult or child. We seek compensation for victims of dog bites and other animal attacks that can cause severe wounds, scarring, disfigurement, and emotional trauma.
Thomas & Wickenheiser also has extensive experience in premises liability cases. Simply put, a property owner or those responsible for maintenance can be found responsible when someone gets hurt under dangerous conditions, such as icy steps or walkways, potential hazards left on the floor, poor lighting, and broken handrails.
First Steps Toward Seeking Compensation for Personal Injury
When an injury occurs, appropriate medical treatment is top priority. After that, we recommend several steps to strengthen a personal injury claim:
- Collect relevant evidence. This includes police reports, hospital records, photos, and any other paperwork that relates to the accident or injury.
- Record details of the accident. Write down everything that happened in the moments before and after the accident, including times of day, such as when an ambulance arrived.
- Establish your witness list. A list of people whose testimony can support a personal injury lawsuit should include their names along with their contact information.
- Retain counsel before speaking. Don’t speak with a representative of the potential defendant or their insurance company before hiring an attorney.
