On September 27th, at approximately 7:13 PM, a 29-year-old resident of New Jersey, entered an establishment north of Boston with a co-worker. While at the establishment, he was served alcohol and interacted with female employees. At approximately 9:59 PM, he was approached by a female employee who engaged him physically by interlocking arms. The female employee then escorted him to a VIP Section. Before entering the VIP Section with the female employee, the victim interacted with security staff. After the exchange between the victim, the female employee and security personnel at the entrance of the VIP Section, the victim started walking away, heading back to the bar. 10 seconds later, he was attacked by the same security personell, throwing a blow to the back of the head. After dazing him, he, along with 5 employees forcefull ejected the victim.

Security staff closed the doors with the victim outside. At 10:00, five security staffers exited the premises through the front door and chased the victim into the parking lot, surrounding him in an aggressive manner. The original assaillant kicked the victim as the security staff surrounded him. The victim was sucker punched in the face, knocking the victim unconscious.

At 10:03 PM, a captain from the City’s Police Department pulled into the parking lot and called emergency services.

Construction site injuries due to contact with electrical lines are a well-known hazard. Fifty-Four percent (54%) of all fatal electrical injuries occurred in the construction industry. On October 14th at approximately 10:30 AM, the Superintendent of a Construction Company was in charge of a construction project in Boston. A parking lot with a small building was removed and the excavation for the foundation of the building was in progress. During removal of the small building, electrical power to the building via a telephone pole was removed by Public Utility in accordance with a work order filled out by Superintendent. Superintendent assumed this removed electrical current from the entire construction project.

Two conduits entered the construction area from the street. Superintendent instructed the excavation crew to remove the conduits. Supervisor explained he had a Work Order from Public Utility and the lines inside the conduits were dead.

Mr. M, the victim, confirmed the plan with his own supervisor who explained “if Supervisor says its ok then it is ok.” The first conduit was cut by excavation crewmen and removed with the front loader by Mr. M. Mr. M exited the excavator and used a hacksaw to cut the second conduit. On his second pull of the hacksaw, a bright flash occurred as well as a loud pop. Mr. M stood up and retrieved his cell phone. Mr. M called his father. While speaking to his father, he felt something striking him. Mr. M noticed co-workers throwing dirt on him. Mr. M was on fire.

An investigation by OSHA revealed multiple violations by Construction Company. The bottom line is this should have been prevented. All Supervisor had to do was walk the line back to the manhole to make sure it was tagged out as dead. Assuming it was dead, caused Mr. M to endure a lifetime of disability, pain, and emotional distress.

Mr. M suffered serious burns to his left hand, arm, and leg because of being electrocuted and burned. Prior to trial, the parties engaged in mediation and resolved the claims for $775,000.

About 1 million Americans are injured, and 17,000 people die, because of fall injuries every year: according to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention. On October 16, 2016, Large Retailer operated a store in Watertown, Massachusetts, which was open to the public. The women’s restroom handicap stall was in a defective condition making it in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Specifically, there was no handle present to close the door, the locking mechanism was broken as was the hook on the back of the door provided for patrons’ use.

On or about October 16th, Ms. D, aged 82, was a customer of Large Retailer when she entered the handicapped stall and tried to shut the stall door to use the restroom. The latch was broken and there was no handle for her to hold the door shut. She used a walker to ambulate, and she had to let go of her walker to use both hands to attempt to shut the stall door. She attempted to use the broken coat hook on the back of the stall door to hold the door shut while she put her finger in the hole of the latch to try and secure the door. Despite these efforts, she fell.

After a lawsuit was filed, Authorized Representative testified on behalf of Large Retailer regarding ADA requirements. He testified it was important for Large Retailer to remain in compliance with ADA requirements for the safety of its customers. Furthermore, although reluctantly, Authorized Representative agreed that if the latch on the handicap stall was broken, it would not be graspable, which, therefore, is in violation of the ADA. Finally, Authorized Representative testified that if the latch on the handicap stall was broken, the stall should be shut down and the latch should be fixed immediately. This was not done on October 16, 2016.

After consulting with an ADA Compliance Consultant, specifically a Certified Access Specialist/ Accessibility Inspector we learned that the Standard of Care that Large Retailer is responsible to comply with is that all “readily achievable” barriers be removed immediately. The fact that the slide lock remained broken and that Large Retailer did not shut down the ADA stall while a contractor or in-house maintenance personnel repaired the lock, was a deviation from the required standard of care. Furthermore, ADA Compliance Consultant opined the absence of a handle, which all parties agree was not there on October 16, 2016, was in and of itself a violation of the ADA. Section 404.2.7 of the Federal ADA require that all doors, doorways, and gates be accessible to all disabled and provide hardware and locking mechanism that can be operable with one hand without forcing the user to pinch, tightly grasp or twisting of the wrist to use or operate. Finally, it was his opinion that Large Retailer did not maintain the minimum standard of care when maintaining accessible elements within this specific facility.

Dr. S, a Massachusetts physician who is Board-Certified in Orthopedics, explained Ms. D was an 82-year-old woman who fell while in the bathroom at Large Retailer. She sustained unstable T11 and T12 fractures. This required surgical treatment. She later suffered from wound breakdown and required a wound debridement which followed multiple visits for wound care. Dr. S explains that there can be no doubt that Ms. D sustained a traumatic thoracic fracture when she fell. The surgery she underwent was directly necessitated by this fall and the resultant injury, the rehabilitation she required, as well as the wound care she required, were a direct result of this injury. She remained bedbound for many months which is also a direct result of this injury.

As of July 25th of the following year, her progress indicated that she was permanently partially disabled due to her injury. According to the American Medical Association Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 6th Edition, Ms. D has 25% whole person impairment.

Prior to the incident, Ms. D’s activities included being independent, living on her own, and able to perform activities of daily living. Since the October 16th fall, Jeanette D has had to go through a very long, very frustrating, and very painful course of surgical intervention, rehabilitation, therapy, medication, and routine follow-ups. During this time, Ms. D has not been able to live independently and has been forced to reside in a nursing home in a wheelchair.

The parties reached agreement to resolve Ms. D’s allegations for $510,000 after engaging in mediation.

More than 30% of all nursing homes experience some form of resident abuse. Nearly 1/3 of all nursing homes have residents that are subject to abuse, whether it’s by staff or other residents. These include malnutrition, physical abuse, psychological distress, exploitation, neglect, and sexual abuse. Additionally, at least 33%, up to 85% of the counties with approximately 1.6 million nursing home residents suffer from dehydration or malnutrition on a yearly basis. Dehydration has become a severe problem and pandemic in nursing homes across the country.

Mr. W was admitted to a well-known nursing home, his family believing the broken promise that the nursing home would take care of their loved one. During his stay, the staff failed to properly hydrate, monitor and provide proper care to Mr. W, leading to his untimely and preventable death.

In June 2019, a 40-year-old resident of Salem, NH was riding in a vehicle as a passenger of driver on ride-share app ride. The driver negligently pulled out from a side road against a stop sign and into traffic, causing a serious collision. Due to the collision, he suffered injuries to his neck and back, including a disc herniation. He had to undergo an MRI, painful injections into his neck, and eventually neck surgery. He incurred over $75,000 in medical bills as a result of the collision.

Since his recovery he continued to suffer from neck and back pain, numbness into his arm and hands, and limitations for approximately two years. His pain and numbness limited him at work as a roofer and kept him from enjoying his life and time with his two young kids. This was avoidable and was due to the negligence of the ride-share driver.

Tragically, he passed away unexpectedly in 2021 due to a heart attack. Since his passing, compensation of $325,000 was obtained for his medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of what we now know were his final years. While it is not enough, it will provide some future financial security to his children.

A study from the University of Michigan found that, on average, about 63,000 buses of all types are involved in bus accidents. About 14,000 of these resulted in injuries. In our situation, Bus Company distributed Safety Bulletins to Driver to address safety issues. These issues included potential for injuries at the rear doors of the bus. Bus Company was required by Federal Law to report serious injuries to the United States Department of Transportation. Furthermore, Bus Company was required to remain ADA compliant and train employees regarding the needs of elderly passengers. Bus Company reported injuries to its insurance company but failed to investigate or take corrective measures internally.

On March 6th, Ms. E was a passenger on a Bus Company bus at Logan Airport. She attempted to exit the rear door of the bus at her Terminal. She requested help with her bag, however, she was ignored. As she attempted to exit, the rear door caught her foot and she fell. Bus Company’s own safety procedures require the bus be stopped within one foot of the curb to allow safe exit by its passengers. This reduces the distance between the bus and the sidewalk allowing for a safe step onto the sidewalk. When Ms. E exited the bus, it was over two feet from the curb.

Accordingly, Driver ignored Bus Company’s own Safety Rules. Bus Company failed to train and monitor its drivers to follow its Safety Rules.

The fall resulted in a Weber Type B distal fibula fracture of Ms. E’s right ankle, requiring surgery and the insertion of hardware. Ms. E’s doctor’s medical opinion is that Ms. E has a 12% impairment of the right lower extremity which is equivalent to 8% of the whole person solely from the injury of March 6th.

Rather than risk the uncertainty of trial, Ms. E. resolved her claims against Bus Company at mediation for $305,000.

Failure to pay attention and yield the right of way results in life altering crashes.

On August 26th, Mr. J was operating a box truck in the scope of his employment with a local construction company when he failed to pay attention and yield the right of way to Ms. R as he attempted a left turn from a convenience store parking lot in Keene, New Hampshire. Mr. J’s box truck struck Ms. R’s vehicle. The force of the impact caused the 76-year-old Ms. R’s right femur to snap, requiring the surgical implantation of hardware. At the time of discharge from the hospital one month later, Ms. R was utilizing a walker with weight bearing as tolerated. She continued to need assistance with some most of her activities of daily living, most importantly, stair walking.

Ms. R received a $200,000 settlement 13 months after the crash, without ever stepping foot inside a courtroom. This money was to compensate her for the difficulties she experiences when she tries to drive. She lives alone and can no longer go to the grocery, pharmacy, hairdresser, or doctor on her own. She must rely on others to help her with activities she was performing on her own herself only the day before the crash.

He felt a sharp agonizing pain in his shoulder and when he looked down he noticed that his shoulder was dislocated.  The shoulder was reset and imaging showed that he sustained a fracture of the humerus bone and a rotator cuff tear.  He underwent physical therapy and a round of injections but after he experienced little to no improvement in his pain level or range of motion, he underwent surgical repair of the joint.  He was unable to work over the course of his 18 months of treatment and healing.  The case resolved for the maximum available coverage

When 61 year old David C. was cut off on I95 near Attleboro on September 13, 2015, his Dodge Truck hit the guardrail and rolled over. The other driver fled the scene. David tore his right rotator cuff, his bicep was torn from the bone, he suffered a concussion, and had some major facial bruising and cuts around his eyes. Because the other driver fled, David had to make a claim against his own insurance company using the uninsured motorist portion of his policy. He had a maximum of $100,000 in coverage. His own insurance company only offered us $12,000 for his pain and suffering. We refused to accept it and the arbitrator awarded him $35,091 for his pain and suffering, plus his medical bills, for a total of $91,248.92.

Ms. A was stopped at a red light at the intersection of Mendon Road and Cass Ave in Woonsocket, Rhode Island when she was rear-ended by another driver. Unfortunately for Ms. A, this crash added to her medical concerns as she had recently been diagnosed with cancer and kidney disease. The added stress from the car accident was overwhelming for Ms. A. Still, we assured her that we would take care of everything so she could focus on getting better and treating her other illnesses.

The other driver’s policy had limits of $50,000, and the insurance company only offered $25,000 to compensate Ms. A for her pain and suffering. We believed that Ms. A was entitled to far more than that, as her crash-related injuries made dealing with her other illnesses much more difficult. Ultimately, we were able to get Ms. A the policy limits of $50,000 and an additional $25,000 through her own underinsured motorist policy. A settlement of $75,000 has provided Ms. A with peace of mind knowing her two daughters will be taken care of.

When Christina was a passenger on her way home traveling on Gorham Street in Lowell, she didn’t expect that she would get in a car crash and need elbow surgery. Unfortunately, the insurance policies for the vehicles involved only totaled $40,000, and no one had personal assets to pursue. While her injuries were significant and entitled her to the full $40,000, the insurance companies took a ridiculous position and refused to compensate her. She hired us 15 months after the crash and after a year of hard work, we settled the case for all of the available money.

In 2017, Brady’s life was changed forever in a traumatic accident leaving him with a brain injury that resulted in him being unable to walk. Since 2017, Brady has been relearning how to walk without assistance through physical therapy and rehabilitation. After finishing his physical therapy appointment on September 3, 2021 in Charlestown, MA, Brady was waiting for his ride at the roundabout outside the physical therapy facility when a transportation van reversed into him, sending him abruptly to the pavement. Brady required help from staff and was put in a wheelchair and taken to the emergency room where he was diagnosed with multiple contusions. While Brady’s treatment was minimal, his visit to the emergency room and setback in confidence in walking without assistance ultimately entitled him to a settlement in the amount of $17,000 from the van driver’s insurance company.
