Personal Injury Litigation


The personal injury lawyers at Mirick O’Connell are dedicated to fighting for the interests of injured people. As the largest law firm in Worcester, Massachusetts, we have the resources to go toe to toe with the biggest corporations and insurance companies to fight for our clients. We are completely committed to our clients. If you are unable to come to any of our three Massachusetts offices, we can travel to meet you, on your schedule. Once you become our client, whether you have been injured in a car accident, truck accident, slip and fall, product liability, construction site accident, or other type of case, you will receive an unmatched level of personal service.

Our goal with every case is to maximize your recovery. Although most clients prefer to settle their case outside of court, we prepare every case to go to trial, and if the insurance company does not offer you a fair settlement, we will be completely prepared for a trial.
