Helping You Recover from a Personal Injury

When an unexpected injury occurs, it can have lasting consequences. Whether it is a catastrophic injury or a soft tissue injury, it can create more difficulties than simply the pain of physical injury. Extended disability, unpaid medical bills, and lost income are common problems faced by people who suffer from personal injuries. Many law firms claim that they will help you recover compensation in your personal injury claim.

At our law firm, our focus is on personal injury litigation. By focusing on this area of law, we believe we offer our clients experience and skills they cannot find elsewhere. We represent clients in all stages of life, including children, elderly, professionals, business owners and the unemployed. At Alekman DiTusa, LLC, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, we work hard to do two things: provide personalized service and to achieve the results that our clients deserve.

Skillful Negotiation and Well-Honed Trial Skills

Most legal disputes are resolved without the need to ever go to trial. Many cases can be satisfactorily resolved by having a serious, professional negotiator on your side to advocate on your behalf. However, when a case deserves a trial in front of a judge or jury, Ryan E. Alekman and Robert A. DiTusa have the experience and skills necessary to present your case to a judge or jury to show that you deserve compensation.

We are lawyers you can talk to, and we will listen to what you have to say. No matter how complex the issue, we can break it down into simple and clearly stated options. Every client is important to us. Call our law office at 413-781-0000 or send us an e-mail to discuss the facts of your case.

Understanding Personal Injuries — Inside and Out

Our attorneys understand personal injury lawsuits on many levels. We have settled millions of dollars worth of claims for our clients, and when a case cannot be settled, we go to court. We have litigated hundreds of claims and have achieved many favorable verdicts for our clients.

Doctors focus on your body to help it heal. Insurance companies focus on the numbers and attempt to reduce costs whenever possible. The reality is that insurance companies try to pay you the least amount that you will accept for your case. As personal injury attorneys, we work with the medical information and the insurance companies and make sure your rights are protected and you receive full and fair compensation for your accident claim. Your job is to work on getting better.

At our law firm, we don’t dabble in personal injury law. We are immersed in it so that we are up to date with the latest case law, the latest litigation techniques, the latest medical technology and treatments, and the latest state and national regulations. When you focus on a particular activity, you get better at it. As the saying goes, “Practice makes perfect.”

Truck Accidents

The average semi-truck can weigh 80,000 pounds. The average auto weighs less than 4,000 pounds. In an 18-wheeler crash, it is easy to understand who will suffer more substantial injuries.

 Our attorneys have substantial knowledge and familiarity with car accident cases – whether the injury was minor or life altering.

Bicycle Accidents

Even a slow speed accident on a bike can result in a serious injury. Pedaling properly in the bike lane at cruising speed can turn deadly if someone makes an improper turn, or a parked car opens a car door at the wrong time.

Pedestrian Accidents

Many drivers do not remember or understand the rules of the road regarding pedestrians. In Massachusetts, a car or truck is required to stop for pedestrians who are in the crosswalk or in the roadway.

Motorcycle Accidents

At Alekman & DiTusa, LLC, we understand the worry faced by a motorcycle accident victim who cannot work and cannot pay his or her medical bills.

Dangerous Products

If you are injured by a defective or dangerous product – whether something you use at work or home, a car component or a children’s toy – you may be able to bring a product liability lawsuit.

Child Injuries

Children react far differently to an injury or accident than adults. Although you may recognize symptoms of your own injury, it can be difficult to recognize when your children have suffered an injury.
