It is difficult to express the magnitude of the loss of a loved one, particularly when that loss was unexpected, preventable and due to the negligent conduct of another. At Jones Kelleher, we understand that wrongful deaths change the lives of family members forever. We recognize that nothing can replace the loss of a beloved family member. However, our attorneys believe that we can make a difference for you and your family during this difficult time by helping you seek justice for your loss and by holding those responsible for the wrongful death accountable in our civil justice system.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR CASE

If you have been injured and are unsure if you have a personal injury claim, the experienced attorneys at Jones Kelleher can help advise you on your rights and guide you through the process. There are many different kinds of personal injury claims, including but not limited to auto accidents, slip and falls, construction site accidents, product defects, and wrongful death. If you have been injured by the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of another, you (the plaintiff) may have a claim against the individual or entity responsible (the defendant). In many states, you have the right to compensation for your loss, which may include but are not limited to medical bills, lost earnings, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and emotional distress. Our trial lawyers have successfully resolved cases for victims who have suffered an injury or loss resulting from a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death claims.

If you believe that you or a loved has been seriously injured due to the negligence of another, we encourage you to contact one of our personal injury attorneys for a free consultation.

Medical malpractice is when the negligence of a medical professional (doctor, nurse, lab technician, therapist, etc.) directly causes injury or death to a patient. Many common types of medical malpractice claims arise out of birth injuries, failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical errors, and negligence in nursing homes and hospitals. In order to prove medical malpractice in states like Massachusetts, there needs to be evidence that a medical professional violated the standard of care, resulting in harm to a patient. In general, the standard of care is defined as the generally accepted practices and procedures used by medical professionals in a specific geographic area when treating patients suffering from a particular disease or disorder. States like Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire have specific statutory requirements for medical malpractice cases that restrict when a claim can be brought, limit the damages that can be collected, and require specialized types of evidence to establish liability.

Our trial attorneys have been overcoming these challenges on behalf of our clients for over thirty years. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys understand both the legal and medical complexities involved in successfully pursuing medical negligence claims. We know how to properly assess and prove liability, as well as quantify both the tangible and intangible loss to you and your family. Supported by registered nurses, the trial attorneys at Jones Kelleher have the experience and resources necessary to successfully represent victims of medical negligence.

Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care directly resulting in injury or loss to another person. Even if the careless conduct was unintentional, the individual or entity may still be liable for the victim’s injury or loss. If more than one person or entity caused the damage, then negligence may be distributed between the parties. Establishing negligence in a personal injury claim requires that certain elements of proof exist before you can file a claim, and these elements differ depending on the state and/or the type of accident at issue. In some cases, an individual or family member can recover for damages even if they may have been partially at fault.

If you have been injured and are unsure if the responsible party was negligent, the experienced attorneys at Jones Kelleher can help advise you on your rights and guide you through the process. Our trial lawyers have successfully resolved cases for victims who have suffered an injury or loss resulting from a wide variety of personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims.
