Millions in Recoveries for People Injured in Massachusetts

Who should pay for injuries caused by a drunk driver? We have successfully handled cases in which the driver was the sole defendant, as well as more complex situations involving dram shop law and liquor liability. Our Wellesley-based firm's successes in such cases include:

  • A favorable jury verdict in Essex County, resulting in a judgment with interest over $400,000, for a 50-year-old man hit by a drunk driver on Route 114 in Andover
  • A settlement exceeding $2.4 million for a married couple whose motorcycle was hit by a drunk driver after his company picnic – obtained in large part through liquor liability claims against the hosting company and caterer

Holding All Responsible Parties Liable for Your Injuries and Losses

We know from experience that liquor liability claims can yield compensation far beyond the policy limits on a drunk driver's insurance coverage or your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This issue may come into play in a variety of situations, such as:

  • A negligent decision to serve an individual too much alcohol at a bar, restaurant, private club, or home
  • Sales or provision of alcohol to minors —by a liquor store, other establishment, or an individual — leading to a car accident or other injury-causing event

Our resourcefulness in advocating for our clients – people in or near Waltham or Framingham, Massachusetts and elsewhere in the Boston metro area – includes a serious investigation focused on finding all possible sources of financial recovery.

When you contact us, you can depend on receiving personal attention and dedicated focus on your well-being, without incurring any attorney fees unless we take your case and achieve a favorable outcome.
