Attorneys at Burns & Jain have won for many Somerville residents at the Somerville District Court House. Only four miles from our downtown Boston office, it is a ten-minute drive or a Red Line ride away. Established in 1842, Somerville is now the most densely populated town in New England. Together with Medford, Massachusetts, it is home to Tufts University. College and graduate students contribute to Somerville’s energetic atmosphere.

Somerville boasts many notable residents and commercial achievements. Barack Obama, for example, lived in Somerville while attending Harvard Law School. Major League Baseball players Arthur Skinny Graham (1909-1967) and Paul Sorrento (1965-present) lived here as well. The influential contemporary novel writer David Foster Wallace also was raised in Somerville, along with Archibald Query, the inventor of Marshmallow Fluff.

Despite its vitality, Somerville is unfortunately like any other city in its susceptibility to dangerous driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently released a report on the most common (and avoidable) causes of auto crashes:

  • Cell phone use
  • Swerving to the left
  • Inattention while backing up
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Exceeding the speed limit

While the 2008 implementation of Massachusetts’ Primary Seat Belt Law has resulted in a significant drop in our state’s medical expenses, it has not fully thwarted the risks of driving. In the chaotic aftermath of a car accident, details crucial to the validity your case are often altered or omitted from the police and accident reports. Our veteran injury lawyers analyze these reports to extract the true story of your accident. If some occurrence in your collision is under dispute, Attorney Burns and Jain will cooperate with traffic professionals to reconstruct the accident, often revealing the evidence necessary to prove your opponent’s liability.

Of course, motor vehicle accident cases involve complex insurance documents and possibly uninsured or under-insured drivers. Our attorneys tirelessly work with insurance agents to produce settlements that appropriately reimburse your personal injury and its associated expenses.
