Skilled Representation And Personalized Service In Personal Injury Matters

At the Law Office of Nancy C. Stanton, PC, I have represented many clients who sustained injuries in motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, animal attacks and medical malpractice actions. My job is to ensure that you are fully compensated for your losses, including your expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. There is no fee unless you receive a recovery.

I understand that there are many lawyers who perform these services, but at the Law Office of Nancy C. Stanton, PC, you are treated as an individual with the respect you deserve. You will never be a number, and all of your concerns will be addressed expediently.

Hold Negligent Drivers And Insurance Companies Accountable For Your Car Accident Injuries

Auto accidents are perhaps the most common source of personal injury claims in the United States. While some crashes are unavoidable, most are caused by negligence or reckless driving and are preventable. My firm is ready to help you seek justice and compensation after any type of motor vehicle accident, both from the at-fault driver and insurance companies that try to deny or underpay your claim.

Were You Or Your Child Injured By A Dog Bite Or Animal Attack?

Most dogs are friendly and pose no threat to humans. Unfortunately, certain dogs do attack people, either because they are inherently aggressive or because they were improperly treated/socialized by their owners. If you were bitten or otherwise harmed by someone else’s dog, you are likely entitled to compensation.

Massachusetts recognizes a legal principle known as “strict liability” in dog bite cases. That means the owner is held strictly liable for the harm their dog caused simply because they own the dog. It doesn’t matter if they didn’t know the dog was dangerous or if they took precautions to prevent an attack. The only liability defense would be to allege that when the attack occurred, the victim was trespassing, had provoked the dog, or both.

Most of the time, dog bite claims are covered under homeowner insurance policies. I will work tirelessly to ensure that your claim gets paid and that you receive a settlement that covers your expenses, economic losses and other damages like pain and suffering.

Seeking Compensation For Patients Harmed By Medical Malpractice

Health care professionals have difficult jobs and perform an important public service. Most of the time, doctors and nurses perform admirably despite facing staff shortages, unreasonably high workloads and inadequate resources as a result of hospital or clinic mismanagement. Unfortunately, however, these problems can and do lead to preventable patient harm. If you or someone you love was seriously injured (or worse) because a health care provider failed to deliver the expected standard of care, my firm can help you seek compensation in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Malpractice can occur at all levels of care, including:

  • Birth injuries (to the baby and/or the mother)
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to treat

Not all adverse outcomes are the result of medical malpractice. But if you suffered serious injuries in the course of medical care and believe that they were the result of negligence, it is a good idea to discuss your case with an attorney.
