Body Injuries


For many individuals, injuries can lead to physical and mental suffering, including long-term disability and pain and suffering. Sometimes these injuries happen because of someone else’s negligence. When that is the case, you should be rightfully compensated for any medical expenses and damages you’ve incurred as a result. The Law Office of Frank Fernandez has helped many Massachusetts residents who have been the victim of accidents or negligent cases, including the ones listed below. Contact us immediately if you think you were harmed because of someone else’s negligence.




A scar’s effects can go far beyond the surface. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident or operation that has physically left you scarred, you have certain rights that can allow you to receive compensation for damages.


Common scars include contracture (typically the result of burns), keloid, hypertrophic, atrophic and stretch marks. These scars can form or worsen as a result of a lack of medical care or receiving poor medical care.


Arm and Hand Injuries


Injuries to the arm or hand unfortunately can lead to serious conditions or procedures, including but not limited to:

  • Digit amputation
  • Elbow disarticulation
  • Nerve damage
  • Shoulder disarticulation
  • Transhumeral amputation (above elbow)
  • Transradial amputation (forearm)
  • Wrist disarticulation


Shoulder Injuries


The shoulder is the most movable joint in the human body and unfortunately is at a high risk of being injured. An injured shoulder can lead to short- and long-term disability. In the instance you or a loved one has suffered a shoulder injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim to get compensation for your medical expenses. Common shoulder injuries include:

  • Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractured shoulder blade
  • Joint injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Separation/dislocation
  • Shoulder instability
  • Shoulder joint tear
  • Sprains and strains
  • Tendinitis


Nerve Injuries


Nerve injuries can be the result of injuries to the neck, spinal cord, back and more. Nerve damage can be as debilitating as other injuries that are easily noticeable, including amputation. However, sometimes it isn’t as easy to prove to the court because of the complexity and nature of the injury. Having a professional on your side is the best way to seek compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve incurred.


Herniated Disc


Back injuries can lead to a herniated disc, which can often be a seriously debilitating condition. Nerves in the back receive an uncomfortable pressure, in turn causing pain to the spinal canal. Without proper medical care, the effects can be constant and long term. If faulty medical care has led to even more complications, you may have a right to seek compensation.


Knee Injuries


Knee injuries are complex and can often require knee replacement. Your medical costs may be covered if it is shown that poor medical care or an accident led to injury. If you or a family member was the victim of any of these, and suffered a knee injury as a result, you have certain rights in the state of Massachusetts. Knee injuries, often the result of workplace accidents, car accidents or falls, include some of the following conditions or affected organs:

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)
  • Arthritis
  • Cartilage injuries and disorders
  • Collateral ligament
  • Hyperextended knee
  • Ligament
  • Posterior cruciate ligament injuries
  • Tendon




A fracture can have a major impact on your ability to perform everyday activities. If you or a loved one suffered a fracture due to an accident or incorrect or poor medical attention, you may be able to receive compensation for incurred medical costs.


Common symptoms of fractures include bleeding, swelling, bruising and bone through skin (compound fracture). There are many types of fractures and the treatment, such as a cast or brace, depends on the type.


If you’ve experienced any of the above injuries, immediately seek medical attention before contacting Frank Fernandez, Boston personal injury lawyer. We’ll be happy to visit you in the hospital or at your home and help you understand your rights for compensation.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
