Biking can be a fresh, healthy and fun alternative to driving a motor vehicle through the crowded, commuter-packed streets; especially in Boston. However riding a bike comes with certain risks not faced by people driving around in cars, trucks and SUV's.
Being injured while on a bike can result in far more serious injuries than driving in a car, as you have no protections against impact and can be much less visible to motorists. A total of 720 cyclists were killed in 2014 in the United States, equating to about two per day. Many more are injured each day. If you have been injured cycling in Massachusetts, having access to qualified, experience attorneys will pay off when dealing with insurance companies for medical bill payment, lost wages, bike repair and payment for pain and suffering.
Our Massachusetts bike accident attorneys are available 24/7, we can be reached at 617-492-3000 or 800-481-6199.Birth Injuries
The joy of welcoming a new life into the world is an unparalleled happiness. Such an occasion should never result in a consultation with a lawyer, but unfortunately birth injuries happen all too often. Sometimes these birth injuries are the result of unsafe practices or negligent behavior by hospital staff, and can result in permanent damage to a newborn, such as cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy.
If your newborn was injured during birth, even if they were born multiple years ago, you may still be able to recover payment in damages as a result, since the statute of limitations on such cases is different than other statutes in Massachusetts. Consulting with a birth injury attorney from Altman & Altman, free of charge, is essential to finding out how you may remedy a birth injury situation.Car Accidents

Most of the time it's construction workers that deal with dangerous work sites, scaffolding safety, crane safety, blasting, and numerous other on the job hazards. Work hazards occur at other jobs as well, such as in manufacturing, trucking, warehouse jobs as well as many others.
