Massachusetts personal injury attorneys Scalli Murphy Law help with car accidents, slip & fall, medical malpractice, workplace injury, defective products, asbestos & mesothelioma, wrongful death, and more. In 1994, founder Stephen Scalli knew there was a better way to help people who had suffered a traumatic injury or were being accused of a crime. At that time, and unfortunately still true today, many lawyers and law firms were putting their needs ahead of their client's needs. They had no empathy or care for the people and families they were tasked with representing, and most importantly they couldn't be bothered to answer client questions or keeping a client advised on their case. From the first day to now, twenty plus years later, our team is committed to getting the best result for you and not for us. We give our clients our cell phone numbers and encourage them to reach out anytime they have a question or concern. We don't just want you to be a client, we want you to be part of our professional family.

Accident Lawyers: The word accident is not a technical legal term with a clearly defined meaning. Speaking generally, but with reference to legal liabilities, an accident means any unintended and unexpected occurrence which produces hurt or loss. But it is often used to denote any unintended and unexpected loss or hurt apart from its cause; and if the cause is not known the loss or hurt itself would certainly be called an accident. The word accident is also often used to denote both the cause and the effect, no attempt being made to discriminate between them.
Asbestos & Mesothelioma Lawyers: Litigation related to asbestos injuries and property damages has been claimed to be the longest-running mass tort in U.S. history. Since asbestos-related disease has been identified by the medical profession in the late 1920s, workers' compensation cases were filed and resolved in secrecy, with a flood of litigation starting in the United States in the 1970s, and culminating in the 1980s and 1990s. A massive multi-district litigation (MDL) complex filing has remained pending in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania for over 20 years. As many of the scarring-related injury cases have been resolved, asbestos litigation continues to be hard-fought among the litigants, mainly in individually brought cases for terminal cases of asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other cancers.
Attorneys: A lawyer is a person who practices law, as an advocate, barrister, attorney, counselor or solicitor or chartered legal executive. Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems, or to advance the interests of those who hire lawyers to perform legal services. The role of the lawyer varies greatly across legal jurisdictions, and so it can be treated here in only the most general terms.
Personal Injury Lawyers
: A personal injury lawyer
is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Personal injury lawyers tend to practice primarily the area of law known as tort law. Even though personal injury lawyers are trained and licensed to practice virtually any field of law, they generally only handle cases that fall under tort law including work injuries, automobile and other accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, and slip and fall accidents.
