Boston Personal Injury Lawyers
Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. Sometimes, the accident is no one’s fault but your own. However, in many instances, people sustain severe and life-changing injuries in accidents that are caused by someone else’s recklessness or carelessness. In worst-case scenarios, these accidents could prove to be fatal, and surviving family members are left wondering why this entirely preventable accident ever occurred.
According to Massachusetts’s Injury Surveillance Program, 3,689 people died due to injuries in 2014, or 10 persons per day. In fact, injuries were the third leading cause of death in Massachusetts in 2014 and were the leading cause of death for people ages one to 44. Additionally, it was reported that 72,581 people were hospitalized from injuries in 2014, and that unintentional injuries accounted for approximately 75% of all injury-related hospital stays.

Types of Personal Injury Matters We Handle
At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, we handle all cases where a person was injured due to the negligence of another.
What is negligence? Negligence is the failure to use due care under the circumstances presented. Both individuals and companies have a duty to act in a manner that does not expose others to harm. However, in many cases, people do not always exercise due care towards others, and injury-causing accidents often follow. Proving negligence requires proof that there was a breach of this duty.
For example, a driver is negligent when they fail to stop for a stop sign and strike another vehicle in the intersection. Homeowners and business owners are negligent when they fail to remove ice and snow from their property. Product manufacturers and drug companies can injure others when they manufacture and distribute products that harm the consumer. Also, doctors and hospitals are negligent and can be held liable for medical malpractice when they fail to adhere to the standard practice of care.
Our team has extensive experience helping people with injury claims including:
- Car Accidents
- Trucking Negligence
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Construction Site Accidents
- Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Unsafe Premises
- Slip and Fall
- Negligent Security
- Unsafe Products
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Alcohol Liability
- Electric Scooter Accidents
- Wrongful Death
- Medical Malpractice
To recover compensation, you will to prove that your injuries were caused in the accident. In some instances, it is obvious that your accident caused your injuries. For example, causation is easily proved in a slip-and-fall accident that results in a fractured hip. However, in other cases, it may be more difficult to prove causation, especially if you suffer from pre-existing medical conditions. The legal team at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP has medical professionals on their staff to help prove that your injuries were indeed the result of the accident and another party’s negligence.

Boston is the capital of Massachusetts as well as the state’s largest city. One of the earliest established cities in the United States, Boston played a central role in the American Revolution and the United States’ independence. In fact, visitors to the city can walk the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail, which takes people past several landmarks in the city that were important to the founding of the U.S., including Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House, the Bunker Hill Monument, Faneuil Hall, and the Old North Church.
Boston is also recognized around the world as an educational center thanks to the number of respected universities, research centers, and medical facilities located in and near the city. Some of the most recognizable names in U.S. higher education are located here, including Harvard University, Boston University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Brandeis University.
The city is also popular among sports fans across the United States, serving as home to some of the country’s most well-known and popular teams. Boston is home to the Celtics (NBA), the Bruins (NHL), the Red Sox (MLB), and the Patriots (NFL). The Boston Red Sox play at Fenway Park, which holds the distinction of being the oldest Major League Baseball Park still in active use in the United States.
