Braintree is a city (although still called a town) located in Norfolk County, Massachusetts and is a suburb of Boston. Braintree is considered part of the Greater Boston metropolitan area and according to the 2010 United States Censes, had a population of 35,744 people.

Braintree was colonized in 1635 and adopted the municipal form of government in 2008. Interestingly, Braintree was the site of the infamous murders in 1920 which eventually led to the famous Saco and Vanzetti trial, which has served as a legal case study for schools across the country.

While every case holds its own unique set of facts that will impact what settlement value it may have, or what verdict may ultimately be awarded at trial, below is list of some of the damages that may potentially be recovered in any personal injury lawsuit.
Medical Bills: In any case, medical bills will be part of the analysis when evaluating a personal injury claim and is one of the first things insurance companies will look at. However, this is not the only factor and Attorney Joseph Curran has successfully obtained six-figure settlements for clients in Braintree in cases where the client had only a few thousand dollars in medical bills or expenses.
Lost Wages: If you have lost work because of your injuries, you are entitled to recover additional damages in the form of lost wages.
Pain & Suffering Damages: This form of damages is often the most uncertain as many insurance carriers will attempt to downplay and minimize the effect that any injuries may have had on the injured party. Insurance carriers will do everything they can to try and minimize the impact that an accident may have had on the victim either physically or emotionally, which is why you need a strong advocate on your side.
Emotional Distress: Car crashes and other injuries can be traumatic events and depending on the circumstances, these accidents can have a lasting impact on an individual’s mental and emotional health. It is not uncommon for victims of serious car accidents to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or display other signs of emotional distress such as depression, sleep problems, or increased anxiety. This area of damages should not be ignored and can potentially make up a large portion of damages in your case.
Loss of Future Earnings Due to an Injury: In some cases, an individual may be unable to return to his/her job or occupation due to ongoing physical impairments or for other reasons related to the accident. In these situations, a claim for loss of future income or earnings may be appropriate.Hire a Braintree Personal Injury Lawyer
