Severe Injury and Wrongful Death

Massachusetts Wrongful Death and Severe Injury Claims

With more than 75 years of continuous operation, the Springfield law firm of Ross & Ross has helped many western Massachusetts families with the legal and financial aspects of recovering from fatal, disabling or serious injuries. If you need advice about your alternatives in a personal injury or wrongful death claim, please contact one of our experienced trial lawyers to schedule a free evaluation of your case.

In Massachusetts wrongful death litigation, medical expenses, loss of income, the victim's conscious pain and suffering and the loss to the family of the victim's love and affection are all damages which may be recovered. Our extensive experience with complex damages claims in auto accidents and construction site litigation can give you an advantage in the preparation and documentation of your wrongful death claim. Moreover, our experience with Massachusetts probate law can also help ensure that any settlement of your family's claims will not present unintended complications for the administration of the victim's estate or for the interests of the heirs.

For personal injury claims involving such disabling or permanent injuries as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord damage, paralysis, extensive burns, electrocution or traumatic amputation, we will present proof of the nature and extent of your physical injuries. Please note that even in serious injury cases, a defendant will often dispute the recovery time, loss of capacity or need for rehabilitative services. As such, we retain medical, vocational and rehabilitation experts to present clear evidence of the need for future treatment and assistance.

Our experience with serious injury claims can help you recover the amount you need after the following types of accidents:

  • Auto or motorcycle accidents
  • Semi truck accidents
  • Workplace or construction accidents
  • Fire, explosion or electrocution
  • Scarring or disfigurement resulting from an accident or the ensuing surgery

If your injuries were suffered in the course of your employment, we can coordinate your application for workers' compensation or disability benefits with the civil litigation case designed to recover personal injury damages.
