Attorney at Law

Services Overview

Areas of Practice

Motor vehicle Accidents

If you were in an accident that was not your fault and have suffered lingering physical pain or financial hardship you may be entitled to compensation. 

Massachusetts insurance provides no-fault benefits for lost wages and medical bills for those effected by motor vehicle accidents. Our office also has expertise in accidents involving motorcycles, trucks, or boats.

If you work with Charles M. Giacoppe we will take your rights seriously and will speak persuasively on your behalf in negotiations and, if necessary, in court.


PREMISES LIABILITY

If dangerous conditions or inadequate security lead to an accident or assault, the property owner may be legally responsible for the resulting injuries. This general concept is known as premises liability and is applicable to both residential and business properties.

By receiving an evaluation of your premises liability claim you will find out if you can seek financial compensation from the property owner where you were hurt. Premises liability cases can be time-sensitive and subject to statutes of limitations so we will evaluate your potential claim quickly and thoroughly.


SLIP AND FALL

Slip and fall accidents can result in broken bones, head trauma, or damage to your neck or spine. Consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to find out whether you have a valid premises liability claim if you have been injured in a slip or fall.

If you have been injured because the property owner did not take reasonable steps to warn visitors or to repair the dangerous condition, then the property owner may be legally responsible for the resulting injuries from your accident.

TAXI AND BUS ACCIDENTS

Those of us who rely on public transportation and taxicabs to get us from one place to another assume that the bus or taxi will carry us safely to our destinations, but bus accidents and taxicab accidents happen with surprising regularity.

If you are injured in a bus accident or while riding in a taxi, your legal right to receive financial compensation is similar to your right to do so after other types of accidents.


DOG BITES

Have you, has a close friend or has your child been the recent victim of a dog bite or animal attack in Massachusetts? When an animal attack scars, disfigures or traumatizes you or a loved one, we can help you understand your rights.

We understand the complexities of these cases, as emotional scars of this magnitude often require medical treatment and extensive therapy for indefinite periods. Attorney Charles M. Giacoppe will help you recieve fair financial compensation from the owners of animals that are not handled responsibly.


WRONGFUL DEATH

Is your family mourning for a loved one whose death was caused by someone else's negligence? That tragedy could be a case of wrongful death, for which you should receive fair financial compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit can be brought by any bereaved individual related to the deceased through the estate of the deceased: children, parents, siblings or surviving spouse.

You can trust our 36 years of sensitively undertaking these cases at the law office of Charles M. Giacoppe, Attorney at Law. 


Workplace Injuries

If you received a work injury anyone who directly or indirectly caused the incident through negligence, carelessness or maliciousness is potentially liable. We will thoroughly investigate, negotiate and actively litigate these cases to provide you with the fair financial compensation you deserve. 

When someone other than your employer bears responsibility for a workplace accident or construction accident you may have additional sources of compensation. We can help you navigate these complex cases with sound counsel and the highest level of personal service.

BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Were you a pedestrian or bicyclist following the rules of the road and were hit due to the driver's negligence? We will examine the circumstances of your case for evidence that points to the driver's fault.

Victims of hit and run accidents must observe deadlines requiring you to report the incident to your own insurance company or risk losing your right to get financial compensation for your injuries. Contact us for help navigating this process.


ALCOHOL RELATED ACCIDENTS

When an impaired person gets behind the wheel of a car the likelihood of a serious accident is high. Anyone injured in a drunk-driving accident should seek immediate legal guidance, including both passengers in cars driven by impaired persons as well as for pedestrians or occupants of other vehicles hit by a drunk driver. 


CONSTRUCTION INJURIES

Contact Attorney Charles M. Giacoppe if you or a family member have been the victim of an employer's negligence that caused injury or wrongful death while working a construction job in Massachusetts.

We protect the rights of construction workers and fight hard for the injury benefits you deserve. If you or a family member has sustained a back, neck or spinal cord injury, paralysis, amputation or brain injury, or a broken or crushed limb at your construction site reach out immediately for a free consultation.
