Practice Areas

At the Law Office of John J. Sheehan, we represent individuals who have suffered serious injuries in vehicle collisions and other accidents. We regularly handle cases involving:

Workers Compensation 

With only limited exceptions, Massachusetts employers are required to carry workers compensation insurance to cover employees who suffer injuries on the job. Under the Commonwealth’s “no-fault” system, you do not need to prove that your employer was negligent in order to receive financial compensation. However, this does not mean that it is easy to obtain benefits for work-related injuries. Many employers and insurance companies fight tooth and nail to minimize their employees’ benefits claims.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites can be dangerous places for not only workers, but bystanders and pedestrians as well. Following a construction accident, one of the key steps to obtaining compensation is determining who is at fault for your injuries. As a worker, you may be entitled to workers compensation, but you may have claims against contractors, equipment manufacturers, and other companies as well. We represent clients who have been injured in all types of construction site accidents, including:

At the Law Office of John J. Sheehan, we have particular experience helping clients recover damages for injuries and other losses suffered at the hands of distracted drivers. Distracted driving is an epidemic that puts innocent Massachusetts drivers at risk every day for serious and fatal injuries.

Personal Injury

Along with vehicle collisions and construction site accidents, we frequently represent clients who have suffered personal injuries in other situations where someone else is to blame. In personal injury cases, we focus on identifying all available sources of compensation and then using the unique facts of your case to fight for the largest possible settlement or verdict. The insurance companies will try to get you to leave money on the table – we will thoroughly evaluate your claim to make sure that you do not settle for less than you are owed.

Our experience includes recovering numerous high-dollar settlements and verdicts for dog bites, dangerous premises, and defective products.

We can also help you file for Social Security Disability.

But, fatal accidents happen every day, and family members are left to pick up the pieces from another person’s or company’s egregious mistake. If you have lost a loved one due to an accident in the past three years, attorney John J. Sheehan can help you hold the responsible parties accountable for your loss.
