"The Fine-Print in Contracts"

Here in Massachusetts, subcontractors doing work on a job site, i.e., cement work, excavation work, carpentry work, etc., many times sign a contract with the general contractor who hires them.  Likewise, cleaning companies, snow removal companies, etc. many times sign contracts with the owner of the property or building as a condition of doing the agreed-upon work. 

Using the Law to Win your Car Accident Case

All motor vehicle accident cases are decided on the facts;  however, rarely are the parties in agreement with regard to those facts.  That is why successful attorneys also rely upon the law to win their cases-  here in Massachusetts, General Laws chapter 89 has codified certain driving activities which are considered illegal:  for example, c. 89, s. 4A states that motorcyclists are not allowed to ride 2 abreast; c. 89, s. 8 addresses who has the right-of-way when 2 vehicles approach or enter an intersection;  and c. 89, s.11 addresses the obligations of a driver when approaching a pedestrian in or near a crosswalk.
