Complete Personal Injury Law Firm
If you are a personal injury victim caused by the actions, negligence, or failure to act of someone other than yourself, it is within your rights to demand reimbursement or fair compensation for your losses—these include loss or damage of personal property, lost wages, medical bills, emotional distress, pain and suffering, etc.
Sweeney Merrigan Law specializes in personal injury law or tort law, expertly providing legal support, representation, advice, insight, and personal attention to victims of accidents. We are passionate about effectively helping victims and their families receive the justice and compensation that they deserve and need as they move forward in the road to recovery. Our areas of practice include:
- Car Accident Injuries – In the year 2018 alone, more than 3000 motorist incidents in Newton requiring emergency medical services. A car accident can cause numerous possible injuries including broken bones, deep lacerations, traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries, and even death…and this translates to a huge financial burden for the victims. As established Newton car accident attorneys, we know the legal intricacies of situations like these in Massachusetts, including the comparative negligence law, to the no-fault system, to the statute of limitations. You shouldn’t have to deal with all that. With the help and guidance of experienced attorneys, you can receive all the benefits that our laws entitle you to.
- Construction Accident Injuries – Construction work is an inherently dangerous occupation. Over a 45-year career, a construction worker has a 1-in-200 chance of being fatally injured on the job, and a 75% chance of experiencing a disabling injury. These injuries affect more than just a person’s physical well-being, it also affects their ability to earn and provide for their families. Determining fault for an accident is tricky and time-pressured…and so is recovering compensation or damages for it. This is why if you find yourself or your family in this situation, contacting a trusted personal injury attorney immediately after the incident is very important.
- Medical Malpractice – An estimated 480,000 Americans become victims of medical malpractice each year, but only 3% ever report it. This means that 97% of victims don’t get the compensation and justice that they’re entitled to. This also means that medical institutions and practitioners are not being held responsible for their failure to deliver the standard of care. If you are injured because of medical negligence, you have the right to take action. You are not alone, and you won’t have to fight alone either if you have an accomplished personal injury to guide and assist you all the way.
- Workers’ Compensation – In Massachusetts, all employers operating in the state are required to carry workers’ compensation coverage for all employees. If you are a state, public, or private employee who gets injured on the job or has developed a work-related injury, you might be eligible for workers’ compensation to cover the cost of your condition. However, the challenge lies in negotiating a fair settlement…this part can get complicated especially when employers deny your claim due to lack of evidence. When difficult situations like this arise, having a competent attorney by your side is your best move to ensuring that you receive the compensation and benefits you need.
- Premises Injury – Every property owner, landlord, and businessman is responsible for ensuring safety while others are on their property. So if you are injured while on someone else’s property, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim. Such injuries can include slips and falls because of poor lighting/construction/maintenance, getting bitten by an unrestrained pet, getting assaulted because of poor security, etc. The success of premises liability cases depend on a number of factors. It’s definitely not an easy journey, but if you have a trusted personal injury attorney on your side, then you can rest assured that you will be making sound, informed decisions as you move forward.
Whatever your personal injury needs, we are ready and dedicated to support you.

The accident may trigger an adrenaline rush and it’s possible you won’t be able to tell if you’re injured or not. It’s important that you enumerate and describe the symptoms, discomfort, and pain that you’re experiencing to the doctor. Provide as much information as you can about your condition and add them to your medical file. If you think it’s necessary that you have medical exams and testing, then don’t hesitate about requesting for them.

- Build the Case – Our skilled lawyers here at Sweeney Merrigan Law immediately start a thorough study and investigation of your case. We gather and review important information from relevant parties to your case (witnesses, police, medical professionals, insurance companies and their claims adjusters). This information could medical evaluations, crime scene notes, accident reports, insurance benefits coverage, etc. We analyze everything, determine which party is at fault and at what percentage they are at fault, and then come up with the reasonable compensation proposal.
- Communication – When it comes to your case, we want to keep you as updated and informed as possible. This is why we let you know what goes on through every step of the legal process. We give you the details about how we can work hand in hand from start to finish. By mail, we communicate to you sound legal advice on how we can improve your chances of winning.

And once we have come to the agreement that the demand is fair and reasonable, our team takes care of presenting it to the claims adjuster or the defense attorney in charge of your case for negotiation.
- Injury Lawsuit – Ideally, your insurance claims should be settled outside the courtroom because nobody likes the financial demands on an ongoing litigation battle.

They will then be used to pay for all expenses, bills, liens, and fees—at our reduced and negotiated rates, of course. Once all has been paid for, you then receive the final settlement check of the remaining funds.
