Injuries to Passengers

Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney

When many people think about obtaining compensation after an accident, they imagine that any recovery must be sought by the injured driver. This is simply not true. Passengers hurt in motor vehicle collisions always have the right to file for money damages.

At the Law Offices of Stephen D. Walsh in downtown Danvers, Massachusetts, we help rear occupants and front-seat passengers garner settlements from insurance companies. Our Peabody passenger injury attorney has more than 35 years of experience handling cases that involve:

  • Whiplash or other soft tissue damage
  • Slipped or herniated discs
  • Nerve damage
  • Back strains or sprains
  • Blunt-force trauma
  • Bruises, abrasions and broken bones
  • Burns or disfigurement


Our Accident Victim Attorney Is Here for You

A passenger is never at fault in a crash. Likely, you have sustained many of the same injuries as the driver of the vehicle, if you were not hurt even more seriously. That said, you are entitled to the same compensation under the law.

When you visit our firm, we will discuss your legal options and help you understand your rights. Our lawyer can help you obtain medical records and other evidence that will substantiate your injury claim during the negotiation process, and if necessary, at trial. It is our paramount aim to see that you receive the full amount of damages to which you may be entitled. This could include money to cover medical expenses, lost wages or pain and suffering.

Before you settle with an insurance adjuster, speak with us. Attorney Stephen Walsh is well known for his compassionate approach and friendly demeanor. When you need help, he is never more than a phone call away. Contact our firm at 978-777-3200. We offer free consultations and make home and hospital visits. Evening and weekend hours are available by appointment.
