When medical mistakes and avoidable accidents lead to serious injuries and death, victims and their families may be entitled to compensation for the harm they have suffered. Insurance companies and defense attorneys employ all kinds of strategies to delay or avoid having to pay, making it important to have a trusted litigator on your side who will aggressively pursue your personal injury or wrongful death claim. At the Chapdelaine Law Office, in Saugus, we have been fighting for plaintiffs in the Boston area and across Eastern Massachusetts for more than a decade, making sure they receive the fair and just compensation they deserve. We demand justice for our clients and are committed to seeing that you get it.


In 2016, an analysis in a peer-reviewed medical journal concluded that medical errors in hospitals and other healthcare facilities had become the third leading cause of death in the United States, claiming the lives of approximately 251,000 people yearly. Despite this alarming statistic, medical errors don’t always result in death. Sometimes patients experience serious complications that can lead to long hospital stays, missed work, temporary or permanent disability, brain injuries, and overwhelming medical bills.

If a doctor’s mistake or hospital’s negligence caused you to suffer an injury or resulted in the death of your loved one, the highly skilled medical malpractice attorneys at our firm are ready to take on the insurance company and defense lawyers to get you the compensation you need to move forward with your life. We passionately represent victims and their families in claims arising from:

  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
  • Medication errors and pharmacy negligence
  • Hospital negligence

Insurance companies will look for any reason to deny a medical malpractice claim, so do not delay in contacting us for a free consultation to discuss whether you may be entitled to damages. When medical professionals and hospitals harm patients or insurance companies deny claims in bad faith, we fight to hold them accountable.


When a property owner fails to maintain a property and someone falls and gets hurt as a result, that person may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Slip and fall accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries, serious neck or back injuries, broken bones, torn rotator cuff, muscle strains, lacerations, or even death. If an insurance company tries to wrongfully deny your slip and fall claim, you can count on us to take all necessary steps to make sure you receive the compensation you are entitled to. We will investigate the circumstances of your accident, including whether the property owner had proper permits or was violating any codes, and will talk to anyone who saw your accident and arrange for an expert witness to testify, if necessary.


Motor vehicle accidents can cause serious injuries or fatalities, especially when pedestrians are involved. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 5,376 pedestrians killed in the United States in 2015, a 10.1 percent increase over the previous year. And according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 22,543 passenger vehicle occupants died in the United States in 2015. When a person is killed by a negligent, reckless or drunk driver, their surviving family members may be entitled to wrongful death compensation. Even when a car accident is not deadly, it can result in serious injuries to drivers, passengers and pedestrians, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Severed limbs
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprains and strains

Let us battle the insurance company and defense lawyers to make sure you get the compensation you need, while you focus on your physical and emotional recovery.

A wrongful death lawsuit provides the families of people tragically killed in an accident with monetary compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, emotional damages, and lost future earning capacities. It also brings responsible parties to justice. The Massachusetts Wrongful Death statute provides compensation for the surviving family members of a person killed by another’s negligence. Damages include both economic and non-economic damages. If such an unthinkable tragedy has resulted in a loss of your loved one, we will immediately take steps to protect your family’s rights and bring justice to those responsible.

Demand Justice for the Loss of a Loved One

When a family member is the victim of a fatal accident caused by someone else’s negligence, seek accountability by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. These claims attempt to compensate families for their financial losses and the medical costs associated with the death of a loved one. If you have lost a family member in a fatal accident, contact Attorney Marc E. Chapdelaine.

A wrongful death lawsuit is a way for a family to cope with the unexpected death of a loved one. These claims seek monetary damages for lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, the loss of a relationship, and lost future earning capacity. The Chapdelaine Law Office concentrates on obtaining proper and just compensation for families.

The death of a loved one can result from a variety of accidents. Since 2005, Attorney Chapdelaine has helped families get justice for the loss of their loved one. Whether due to nursing home abuse or a catastrophic accident, Attorney Chapdelaine has helped families receive the compensation they deserve for the loss of their loved one.

Not every case results in a right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The right to file a claim varies from state to state.

Generally, parents, spouses, and children have that right. At the Chapdelaine Law Office, Attorney Marc Chapdelaine will personally inform you about your right to file a claim for the loss of a loved one. It is important in any lawsuit to hire a lawyer soon after the accident. In order to preserve evidence and document witnesses’ statements, you need to speak to an experienced trial lawyer as soon as possible. You also need to understand that a personal injury claim survives the death of a family member.
