Making New Law to Protect
Children from Lead Paint Exposure
Martin Kantrovitz successfully prevailed in the landmark Supreme Judicial Court case that established the legal precedent for imposing liability on landlords for lead poisoning injuries suffered by children. Our law firm has a long history and an exemplary reputation as a leading advocate for children who suffer neurological injuries and other loss of cognitive functioning caused by lead paint exposure. Because of Mr. Kantrovitz' high standards of legal competence, many years of experience, and commitment to the highest ethical standards, Kantrovitz & Kantrovitz LLP has been awarded the highest possible rating (AV) in Martindale-Hubbell, the predominant rating system for attorneys.
Effectiveness Based on Compassion for Our Clients Hardships
Our established track record of proven results and our wealth of experience is built upon the compassion and empathy we have for injury victims and families affected by accidents. Our attorneys and staff are dedicated to the principle that victims should be compensated for their losses, so that they can rebuild their lives.
Because Kantrovitz & Kantrovitz LLP has been successfully fighting for injury victims for over 45 years, the lawyers of Kantrovitz and Kantrovitz are intimately familiar with the devastating impact accidents can have on a personal injury victim and the victim's family. A personal injury victim may be forced to endure severe pain, a grueling course of medical treatment, enormous emotional anguish, as well as impairment of one's quality of life and marital relationship. These physical and emotional challenges may be compounded by the financial burdens resulting from time out of work, as medical bills and household bills continue to mount.
Our dedicated and compassionate team of attorneys and support staff has been helping families seek justice and rebuild their lives for over 30 years. Because of our long tenure assisting personal injury victims throughout Massachusetts, we have refined our litigation skills and developed proven tactics that have allowed us to guide thousands of injury victims toward large settlements and personal injury verdicts. We provide skilled and diligent representation from our initial investigation of an injury claim through judgement. Although we cannot alleviate the physical pain you are experiencing or give your back the love and affection of a close family member, we can help you obtain the compensation to deal with the challenges in getting back to your work and family responsibilities.
Because of our vast amount of experience, our law firm is qualified to handle a broad spectrum of personal injury cases including but not limited to the following:
Worker's Compensation ClaimsMost employers in Massachusetts are required to carry worker's compensation insurance so when you are injured on-the-job you generally will be entitled to worker's compensation benefits. These benefits include free medical care and wage replacement for employees that are forced to miss work because of a work-related injury for five days or more. While the worker's compensation system is designed to be an efficient no-fault system, there are complex procedures and strict deadlines that must be met to preserve your claim. The worker's compensation insurance company for your employer will have its own attorneys who will work to minimize the amount paid on a claim.
Our experienced team of worker's compensation attorneys understands how to effectively handle the medical and legal issues to effectively pursue a worker's compensation claim. If a third party other than your employer contributed to your work-related injury, we will also investigate the feasibility of a personal injury lawsuit, which may provide more extensive financial recovery.
Construction Accident LawsuitsIf you work in the construction trades, you face one of the most dangerous work environments on a daily basis. Construction projects are filled with potential hazards to those working on the project, visitors to the site and even pedestrians passing by a construction site. There are approximately 150,000 people injured in construction accidents, and a thousand more people die in mishaps on construction sites each year. Construction annually makes the top of the list for the highest number of workplace fatalities.
Some common hazards that result in construction accidents that may be the basis for a construction accident worker's compensation claim against your employer and/or a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent third party include:
- Defective machinery
- Falls from poorly constructed scaffoldings, incomplete roofs, or holes in floors
- Unsafe storage of debris or equipment
- Exposed power lines
- Explosive, flammable, or toxic chemicals and substances
- Lack of shoring on excavations
- Improper operation of heavy equipment (e.g. excavators, backhoes, tractors, cranes, bulldozers and others)
Our experienced Massachusetts worker's compensation attorneys guide our clients through the worker's compensation system and explore the viability of a personal injury lawsuit to seek more extensive damages for our clients.
