Over 50 Years as a Leader in Massachusetts Personal Injury Law.

When you're pursuing a claim for personal injury or wrongful death, you deserve the best legal representation available. For the personal injury lawyers at SUGARMAN, that means the personal attention of one of our partners. From the beginning of your case until the end. Listening. Returning your calls. Keeping you informed. Focused on achieving outstanding results for you and your family.

Although there are many personal injury lawyers in Massachusetts, the number of accomplished trial lawyers is relatively small. Located in Boston, SUGARMAN is one of the oldest, largest and most respected personal injury law firms in Massachusetts, with a record of achieving groundbreaking precedents and results for decades. At SUGARMAN, you get a team of accomplished Boston personal injury attorneys that will work long and hard to achieve the best results for you. Lawyers who are straight with you and have the resources and experience to handle the challenges of your personal injury claim, no matter how complicated. Although our office is located in the Back Bay of Boston, we travel to and litigate cases in every county in Massachusetts.

Accountability and Teamwork

Unlike lawyers who take in a client and then pass much of the casework to others, we believe that every client deserves an experienced lawyer who is in charge and accountable. A lawyer who answers to the client at all times and is ultimately responsible from beginning to end.


At SUGARMAN, you get that lawyer—along with an entire firm committed to your case. We understand the power of teamwork, exchanging ideas and sharing decades of experience with one goal in mind: to achieve outstanding results for our clients.


That is why, from the very first meeting, an entire team of lawyers stands behind the partner managing and handling your case.

Proven Success with a Focus on the Client

Year after year, SUGARMAN delivers some of the largest and most significant settlements and jury verdicts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 2011 alone, in addition to numerous settlements, SUGARMAN attorneys obtained 2 of the 10 largest reported personal injury verdicts in Massachusetts; one of them being the largest. In 2019, SUGARMAN attorneys obtained the 3rd largest jury award in Massachusetts. The list goes on and on.

But we know dwelling on past successes is not what our clients need. What determines continued success for our clients is the attention and dedication applied to each case by our experienced attorneys.

Breadth of Practice and Experience

Few firms in Massachusetts have achieved jury verdicts and settlements in such a wide range of practice areas, including cases involving medical malpractice, defective products, explosions and fires, construction site accidents, car, bicycle, trucking and other vehicle accidents, airplane accidents, and property defects resulting in injuries. There is almost no type of personal injury case that SUGARMAN attorneys have not handled.

Industry Recognition

For a nine-lawyer firm, SUGARMAN attorneys receive personal and professional recognition that is unparalleled in the field of personal injury law. Every one of our partners has been chosen by their peers as a “Massachusetts Super Lawyer” or “Rising Star” for years on end. The recognition and success does not end there.
