It’s summer fun and sun and vacation time. Vacationers from Peabody, Danvers, Saugus, Salem, Lynn and Wakefield are taking their activities outside to enjoy the balmy breezes and dry pleasant air. Kids of all ages are pedaling the bike paths and rail trials all over the North Shore. Motorists are enjoying the scenery, taking day trips to the beautiful sandy beaches and strolling the outdoor shopping centers, such as the Lynnfield Market Street. The North Shore in the summertime is abundant with tourists and residents appreciating all that Massachusetts and the North Shore have to offer. Unfortunately, along with the crowds enjoying outdoor activities, comes the potential for accidents. If you are injured while participating in a summer activity, you should consider speaking with an experienced injury lawyer.
Bicycle accidents, car accidents or slips and falls can cause serious injuries, medical expenses and lost time at work. Talking to a knowledgeable personal injury attorney could go a long way towards getting you a fair settlement for your injuries. If you have severe injuries, expensive medical bills, or significant loss of wages because of your injuries from an accident, you should consult with a lawyer who practices in the areas of accident and injury law. Some personal injury lawyers may focus on one area of personal injury in particular, such as slip and fall accidents or car accidents or wrongful death. One good way to find an experienced accident attorney is by referral, another is to speak with family and friends or search the internet to see what other people have to say about the attorney that you are considering.
If you have an injury from an accident and seek compensation from the wrongdoer, you can expect them to have a lawyer or trained claim handler to review and respond. This person is not looking out for you. Rather, they may be trying to trick you into saying something that can be misinterpreted or taken out of context and then be used to reduce or deny your claim. Level the playing field, don’t wait, get your own skilled lawyer to help as soon as you can.
