Springfield, MA, and its surrounding areas are host to considerable traffic. When you travel locally you can see the large number of trucks on the roads and highways. It’s not surprising that many vehicular accidents in the area involve trucks.
While any accident can be damaging, when a truck is involved, the issues tend to be exponentially more severe. The size and weight of a truck, when compared with the average automobile, make destruction common, and the injuries that result from truck accidents can be serious and the fallout costly.
An accident with a truck can impact your life forever.

Managing a lawsuit after a truck accident is an involved and complicated process. Massachusetts personal injury law is detailed and filled with intricacies that a layperson simply cannot understand. In fact, to successfully handle trucking accident/personal injury suits, years of experience and considerable knowledge are necessary.
As a victim of a truck accident, choosing the firm to represent you in your personal injury lawsuit is the first, and one of the most important, decisions you will have to make. While your options are numerous, the right firm is one that not only has truck accident experience, but the one that also provides you with the peace of mind that everything they do is in your best interests.
We are that firm. The unique combination of our specific experience, considerable knowledge and trustworthy approach distinguishes us in the industry. Cava Law Firm has:
The combination of our experience, skill and commitment makes us the ideal firm to help you handle this tragic event in your life.
Traumatic does not even begin to describe the experience of being involved in an accident with a truck. A collision of any type is awful, but when the other vehicle is significantly larger and weighs considerably more, the resulting damage is often catastrophic.
Those involved in an accident of this type may be injured and are likely stunned — they simply are in no position to oversee all the steps necessary to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
In cases like this, the Springfield, MA, truck accident attorney at Cava Law Firm can be an incredible resource. Our firm is well-versed in personal injury law and handling truck accident cases. We know what to do and how to do it, and we understand and appreciate all that accident victims are managing. We pride ourselves on relieving some of the stress surrounding the situation and providing our clients with the confidence that their case is being handled appropriately. Let us handle all the details, while you focus on getting better. Once you engage us, we will take the following steps to maximize your settlement.
We Investigate: Our first course of action is to fully investigate your accident. Knowledge is power, and we make sure to gather the full slate of available information, including medical records, first responder reports, witness statements and any existing videos or photos. By taking time to review the accident site and the accompanying paperwork, we can get a clearer picture of the incident.
We Communicate: Another valuable component of our service approach is the fact that we assume all responsibility for communicating for you. As an accident victim, it is not surprising that your phone, mailbox, and email inbox are filled with messages from attorneys, insurance company representatives, billing companies, and more.
At the outset, we encourage you to simply refer to us anyone who contacts you and let us handle everything going forward.
In fact, it is beneficial to your case for you to avoid speaking with anyone directly as you may accidentally say something that could negatively impact your case. We take this worry, and all the messages, off your hands.
>We Negotiate: As your truck accident lawyer we will assume all responsibility for negotiating your settlement. In order to do this appropriately, we must obtain a complete accounting of the totality of your damages. Our team, along with experts, if necessary, will accurately identify and quantify your economic and non-economic damages, a process that can be more complicated than it initially appears.
We Quantify: While economic damages, including medical expenses and lost wages, are seemingly easy to substantiate, some victims will continue to incur them for years (for example, when spinal injuries occur). We need to forecast them, along with any possible care and lost future wages in order to make sure the settlement we request covers all of your losses.
Additionally, non-economic damages, like emotional distress and pain and suffering, are very real and quite common in accidents involving trucks. We know how to account for them and prove them, if questioned. While it seems like common sense that victims would suffer emotionally after a truck accident, you can be sure that insurance company representatives will doubt your pain.
We Litigate: Finally, if we are unable to reach a satisfactory settlement through negotiation, we will not hesitate to go to court where we will aggressively litigate your case. Our firm is founded on the belief that those whose negligent actions or inactions caused damages should be held accountable.
In the most unfortunate of cases in which a life is lost, our team can file a wrongful death lawsuit to compensate you for your losses, which may be significant.
When you engage us, you can rest assured that we will handle everything regarding your case, including keeping you apprised of our progress. We understand the intricacies involved in truck accident cases and will put our experience to work for you.
While each truck accident and its impact is unique, the one thing all of those we serve seem to have in common is that they have a lot of questions. We are not surprised. Nobody expects to be in this position, and the legal process is a frightening unknown. Below we have shared some of the commonly asked questions along with our answers.
Yes, but you may not get what you deserve or understand what you are fully entitled to receive. In Massachusetts, personal injury law is complicated, as are its wrongful death statutes. A truck accident lawyer understands the legal details necessary to obtain a positive outcome. And, quite simply, the truck driver and company will absolutely have skilled attorneys representing them. You want to be on equal footing. You also want to get every penny you deserve when you are not at fault for being involved in a truck accident.
Do not speak with them, or anyone else, about your accident. Instead, immediately refer them to your truck accident lawyer. We will manage all communications for you, alleviating the concern that you will say something that could damage your case.
There are several possible negligent parties in a truck accident. Your truck accident lawyer will investigate your case and identify those who may be at fault, including the truck manufacturer, driver, or trucking company. Even companies like Federal Express can be sued if their trucks and drivers are involved in accidents.
Yes, there is. In Massachusetts the statute of limitations regarding personal injury cases is three years. This means that you have to file suit within three years of the date of the accident. The same time frame is in effect for wrongful death lawsuits. You want to work with a legal team that understands this and will file within the limits, or your case may not be heard.
While we hope the details above provide some basic information that helps you, we are well aware that the questions you have may go far beyond what we have shared. With more information regarding your accident, the information we provide can be tailored to your needs.

“I have had a great experience with Cava Law. The other driver admitted blame and the insurance company still wouldn’t pay medical bills or time missed from work. Then I hired Attorney Cava. Kymberly-Anne handled my paperwork for Attorney Cava and got me over $3000 in lost wages within a week.” – Chris Karwoski (Google Review)
