New Bedford Personal Injury Lawyers

New Bedford, Massachusetts Personal Injury Attorneys

The cost of a personal injury can be substantial when ongoing medical treatment is required and long-term disability enters the picture. At Lider & Fogarty, our attorneys work with medical economists and life care planners to accurately determine the financial impact of an accident on our client. Our cost-data analyses and cost projections take into account future medical treatment, in-home nursing care, medical equipment, physical therapy, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our attorneys also consult medical experts who can rebut claims on the part of insurance doctors who attempt to downplay the scope and nature of a head, neck, back, or spinal cord injury.

Don't let an insurance company mislead you into accepting a settlement without first consulting an experienced attorney who can protect your rights and your interests. To schedule an appointment and discuss your case, contact personal injury lawyers at Lider & Fogarty today.

Injuries, Liability, and Recovery

The personal injury attorneys at Lider & Fogarty represent clients in regard to the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian knockdowns
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Premises liability
  • Construction site accidents

Establishing Who's to Blame in Personal Injury Cases

Our attorneys work with experienced accident investigators, engineers, safety experts, and other professionals in determining the causes of an accident. Since insurance companies often attempt to reduce their liability by arguing that the person injured was partially - or completely - to blame for causing an accident, establishing hard evidence that suggests otherwise is essential.

Massachusetts is a modified comparative negligence 51% state. This means if you're found to be 51% or more at fault, you aren't eligible to receive any damages. If, however, you're 50% or less at fault, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. For example, if you suffer $100,000 in losses but are deemed 40% at fault, you can only recover $60,000 in losses. Insurers know this and are only too eager to investigate accidents in order to find anything they can argue shows you are partially at fault.
