Suffering an injury can be devastating physically and emotionally. Medical bills may pile up, work may suffer, and the psychological trauma is often debilitating. While the effects may be similar, the causes of personal injuries can vary greatly. Examples of personal injury claims include injuries sustained in these types of accidents: automobile, on-the-job, tripping, assault, defects in products, and even accidents while on vacation. Specific examples of personal injury are if a person trips, falls, and injures himself on a wet restaurant floor—perhaps one that had no warning sign—and for instance, if a baby crib is defective and the baby injures himself within the crib. If you or a loved one has been injured, the only way to know whether you have a case is to consult an experienced personal injury attorney. Eric J. Parker is the Director of Parker Scheer’s Complex Personal Injury Group and brings more than 23 years of experience as one of Boston’s leading personal injury trial attorneys. At Parker Scheer, our team dedicates itself to securing the best outcome for our clients and their families, whether that means settling out of court or going trial. Either way, we are behind our clients 100 percent. Read more about our Personal Injury Practice.
Oftentimes, business disputes cannot be resolved with negotiation or arbitration, and thus, business litigation is the solution. A common example of where business litigation is necessary is when a disgruntled employee, who has just been fired, hacks into her former company’s database and causes damage to it. Another example is when an investor feels her investment broker has not acted ethically and she suffers a substantial financial loss due to the broker’s behavior. In regard to two business entities, business A may feel that business B infringed on its trademark, patent, or copyright, and this situation must be rectified. Barry S. Scheer serves as director of the firm’s Business Law and Litigation Group. He has more than twenty-five years of experience in business litigation and corporate law, and is widely regarded as among Massachusetts’ leading business litigation attorneys. If you find that you need a Boston business litigation lawyer, please call us at Parker Scheer.
