  • Contractor working for local utlities' energy savings program assigned a job to an insulation contractor to insulate a residential home with blown in cellulose insulation in the attic to save the homeowner on heating bills.  The home caught on fire several weeks later because the insulation contractor failed to follow safety guidelines.  A firefighter was injured fighting the fire in the confined space of the attic.  It turned out the insulation contractor had failed 49% of post job inspections in the prior four months, yet still was assigned new insulation jobs to unsuspecting homeowners. , INSULATION CONTRACTOR CAUSES HOUSE FIRE & PAYS $1.6 MILLION TO INJURED FIREFIGHTER, Police Officers, State Troopers, Firefighters
  • A police officer injured on duty can make a valuable claim against a negligent third party, even when the current injury involves a body part injured or operated on in the past or has been chronically problematic. It is not unusual for an officer to re-injure a back, shoulder, knee, wrist, or ankle during an incident on duty. Many officers have dealt with lower back pain and received treatment off and on over the years, only to have it aggravated in a new cruiser collision or in a struggle with a suspect. All of these injured officers have valuable claims which they can make against the wrongdoer from the new incident. These claims compensate the injured officer for losses which include lost overtime and detail pay, pain and suffering, and scarring, DON’T WORRY ABOUT PRIOR CONDITIONS, Massachusetts Injured Police, Troopers and Firefighters
