In recent years, vehicle accidents have been a major safety concern in Waltham. Being only about 10 miles from Boston, there are many congested roadways and busy intersections in our city. Route 20 runs right through town and has been the scene of quite a few car and truck accidents. Meanwhile, the intersection at Lyman and Main Street is considered one of the most dangerous intersections in the state.
Car accidents can happen to anyone, even the safest of drivers. You may be driving home from Boston on Route 20 when someone who is texting, talking on the phone, or driving under the influence crashes into you. When this happens, you have the right to be compensated.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a car crash or another incident due to someone else’s negligence, it’s vital to take action before your time to file a claim runs out. You may be overwhelmed at the idea of working out a settlement or preparing a lawsuit, but your load is greatly lessened when you have an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer on your side.

How Serious Are Your Car Accident Injuries?
You could easily get into a car accident within the city of Waltham—and not just on the highway. There are several intersections in Waltham that are known to have high accident rates such as Main and Moody streets, Trapelo Road and Lexington Street, or Main and Fiske streets. Each vehicle accident in Waltham is different from the last, some being minor while others result in serious injury.
Some car accident injuries don’t manifest themselves right away. For this reason, you must take time to be checked out by a medical doctor even if you initially believe you’re fine and unaffected. Seeking out medical help will both strengthen your case and ensure that you get treated as soon as possible.
Serious car crash injuries include:
- Fractures or broken bones
- Chest injury
- Internal organ damage
- Neck and spinal injury
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Sadly, some car accident victims are left with serious injuries that have a permanent impact on their lives. They may require long-term care, need therapy, or be unable to return to work and provide for their families.
If this is your situation, you don’t have to go it alone. Our Waltham personal injury attorneys are familiar with tactics that insurance companies use to get victims to settle for the lowest amount possible. Let us argue your case with them, so you can rest and recover. After taking on your case, our legal team will handle all negotiations with insurance companies and work hard to get you the best possible settlement for your case.
Waltham Slip-and-Fall Accident Lawyers
Slip-and-fall accidents can take place anywhere—at the grocery store, a restaurant, the bank, or a friend’s house. Victims can incur injuries that affect their lives for days, weeks, or even years to come.
If you were hurt in a fall, it’s important to identify the reason for your fall. Some common causes of slip-and-falls include:
- Uneven floors
- Dimly lit rooms and hallways
- Potholes in parking lots
- Recently mopped or waxed floors
- Ice or snow
- Cords that run across a walkway
- Broken or missing railings
- Failure to rope off construction sites
- Loose carpet
- Broken furniture
Liability for slip-and-fall accidents is based on negligence. You must be able to prove that (1) a property owner knew or should’ve known about the hazard but didn’t do anything to correct the situation, and (2) that this hazard is what caused your fall and your injuries.
Slip-and-fall cases can be complex, but the attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers are experienced at handling these cases. We know what evidence is needed to win your case!
