Last week on the blog, we discussed a tragic incident where a four-year-old boy was struck and injured by a car while he was trick-or-treating. Sadly, pedestrians face an enormous risk on Massachusetts’ streets. High traffic areas and negligence oftentimes combine to cause serious pedestrian accidents. The aftermath of these wrecks can be extraordinary. Not only may a victim be left with physical pain, reduced physical abilities, disfiguration and/or permanent disability, but he or she may also be subjected to emotional pain and suffering and significant financial losses, such as medical expenses and lost wages.
At a time when a car accident victim may want to focus on getting back on his or her feet, medical bills, the mortgage and utilities can come due. Without the income on which a family relied, an out of work individual can be left struggling to make ends meet. The good news is that, if you are in this situation, you may not have to be for long.
If your injuries and resulting damages were caused by the negligence of another, then you may be able to recover compensation from that negligent driver. At the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle, our attorneys are well-versed in the legal requirements that must be met before liability can be imposed and compensation can be recovered.

We know what kind of deal the defense might be open to, as well as what evidence and judge and jury will need to see in order to find in our clients’ favor.
