Personal Injury

Fall River, Massachusetts, Personal Injury Lawyer

After you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence or misconduct, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. I am personal injury attorney Kenneth van Colen of the Fall River, Massachusetts. When you come to me to discuss your personal injury or wrongful death claim, I will do more than just ask about your injuries. One of the most important things I can do as your lawyer is to listen to how you and your family have been affected by the injury.

A Personal Injury Isn't Just About Money. It's About Recovery and Justice.

A personal injury case isn't only about the money. Recovering medical bills, lost earnings and the cost of rehabilitation is important of course. But I will also discuss how your life and family members have been affected. What were your hopes for the future? What was your life like with your children before the injury? What emotional damage has your family suffered?

Contact me as soon as possible after you or a family member has been injured in a car accident or other kind of accident. Since 1997, The Law Offices Burke, Espinola, & van Colen has been helping people and their families get back on their feet after suffering serious injuries. I can help you recover more than just money. I help you recover a sense of justice.

I have helped people recover money damages for personal injuries such as:

  • Car accident injuries
  • Motorcycle crash injuries
  • DWI car accident wrongful death claims
  • Premises liability and slip-and-fall accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Falling accidents

Soft Tissue Injury: Strains, Sprains and Whiplash

Unlike a broken bone, which will show up in an X-ray and heal in a relatively short time, soft tissue injuries are lasting, difficult to live with and difficult to demonstrate in court. Strains and sprains to the neck, back, shoulder or knee can have a huge impact on the quality of your life. But how do you quantify that loss? I am experienced in understanding what your injury means to you now, what it will mean to your future and how to make that impact understandable to a judge or jury.

Because I have extensive experience in the courtroom, I negotiate settlements from a position of strength. If you have been injured because of the negligence, misconduct or criminal action of another, talk to me before you talk to an insurance adjuster.
