In Auto Accidents, Pedestrian Accidents, Personal Injury by John Tramontozzi

Experienced in resolving pedestrian accidents in Melrose, Massachusetts

If you or a loved one are injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver John Tramontozzi at Tramontozzi Law in Melrose MA is here for you. Although many pedestrians look carefully for oncoming traffic, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on average, a pedestrian is killed every 109 minutes and injured every 7 minutes. These accidents may be caused by distracted driving, DWI and a host of other contributors. Victims of serious personal injury are faced with making life-altering decisions about their future, including financial decisions, while suffering from the emotional turmoil that accompanies such a traumatic event. The legal system can be complicated and confusing, especially when your resources are tapped by a traumatic situation, making it all the more critical to have a trusted and knowledgeable counselor to provide experienced and unwavering representation

Children in particular are at risk of being hit by drivers. In children repercussions may not surface until years after the original injury. These injuries may result in changes to their abilities as they grow. They may require medical intervention to accommodate developmental changes and in grave situations one may need to undergo surgeries to accommodate development (or aging in adults) for many years after the original injury.

You may not have accurately assessed the full extent of your damages, including lost future earnings, diminished ability to enjoy once-loved activities, and emotional and physical pain or suffering you experienced as a result of the accident. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you calculate the amount of your damages to help ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries. We understand how physically, emotionally and financially devastating a pedestrian accident can be and we are dedicated to helping you obtain fair compensation for your injuries.

Thus, an attorney who understands and can draw from reliable experts to assess the long-term implications of such injuries will be better able to ensure the victims receive just compensation and sufficient resources for the future
