Get a second opinion.

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Sep 19, 2019 | 0 Comments

Get a second opinion and maybe a new lawyer. Some people sign up with a lawyer and figure they are stuck. Not true. The law recognizes that sometimes things don't work out in the lawyer-client relationship. The most important thing is not bruised feelings of a lawyer, but the interests of the...

Staying Centered

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Sep 17, 2019 | 0 Comments

I try to write my blogs and any advertising when I'm sitting on a bench in down-town. People watching always helps me stay centered on real people in the hustle and bustle of life. These things should not be written in a library or behind some big lawyer desk. Perspective is important. And, by th...

I'm NOT bashing your insurance agent or mine.

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Sep 16, 2019 | 0 Comments

As you can see from my blogs, I'm very critical of the insurance industry. I don't appreciate how they treat good, honest people when they need to make a claim for damages.  By the way, I'm also critical of most lawyers, too. Any way, my criticism is not directed at insurance agents who sell i...

Winning

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Sep 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

It is about winning. Coming in second place in my business is painfully unacceptable. There's too much at stake for my clients. Injury victims only get 1 bite at the apple. So, winning is paramount. Nobody hires me to lose. Its about winning - by working harder than anyone else, being genui...

JURY TRIALS — FRAUD EXPOSED!

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Sep 03, 2019 | 0 Comments

It is my firm belief that every case should be settled in an amicable fashion—fair and reasonably. I always advise my clients to settle for a fair amount; this is not some sort of lottery—at least not in my view. Sadly, the insurance companies, all too often, decide to short-change and cheat inj...

You don't need to impress me

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Aug 28, 2019 | 0 Comments

I love being with real, ordinary and unpretentious people. We are all on this journey together, and nobody is any better than anyone else. Never been into trying to impress. I meet my clients in a living room setting, not from behind a big mahogany lawyer desk. I value good, old fashioned str...

Why Injury victims Get $$$

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Aug 27, 2019 | 0 Comments

It's the law. When someone has been injured they are entitled to compensation. That means money. Money for pain, suffering and disability, loss of enjoyment of life - past, present and future. Money for mental anguish, anxiety and worry - past, present and future. Money to reimburse your los...

DONAHUE LAW SLOGANS: A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Jan 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

Slogans.  Over the years I've used a few.  They reflected me at different times. One of my first was: ” Make them pay.” Pretty bold and aggressive. Caught some flack for it. Another was: ” It pays to call Charlie.” Not aggressive enough. Then: ” Knuckles of brass… heart of gold.” Talk ...

STANDING UP TO BULLIES

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Jan 03, 2017 | 0 Comments

There's no doubt I'm pretty tied up representing people involved with serious and catastrophic injury cases. I'd go into another line of work immediately if all that bad stuff could come to an end. Well, why on earth would I put up a billboard looking to help people who are being hounded by c...

EXPOSED: THE SHAMEFUL FRAUD PLAYED ON THE JURY!

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Aug 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

What the law hides from the jury. I think it's outrageous, and unfair. Say an injury victim is treated unfairly by an insurance company that wants to make a terrible offer. All the injury victim can do is file a lawsuit. The jury is asked to make a decision. And that is what trial by jury is all...

I’VE BEEN INJURED. WHAT DO I DO NOW?

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Aug 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

I'm sorry to hear that you or someone you care about has been injured. Life, even under the best circumstances can be difficult. First, the most important thing you can do now is get the medical care and treatment you need. You need to get back on your feet so that you can take care of yourself...

DO I HAVE A CLAIM FOR PERSONAL INJURY DAMAGES?

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Jul 23, 2016 | 0 Comments

This is a very good question. The answer depends on many things, and I'm not trying to give you lawyer talk. Generally speaking if you were injured due to another's negligence or carelessness, you will have a valid claim. Other factors are important, too, such as whether the responsible party—...

TRUCKING ACCIDENTS IN THE NORTHEAST

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Jun 12, 2016 | 0 Comments

Trucking accidents account for thousands of injuries annually in the United States, and for seemingly obvious reasons—tractor-trailers, commonly referred to as semi-trucks, are substantially larger and heavier than any other vehicles on the road. Their size alone gives truck drivers limited visib...

ACCIDENTS RESULTING IN SPINAL CORD INJURIES

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Apr 06, 2016 | 0 Comments

The spinal cord is a critical component of our bodies—responsible for much of our strength, sensation, and mobility, an injury to the spinal cord may change your life forever. Spinal cord injuries are often the result of trauma, whether it be from an auto accident, a work-related accident, sports...

DO I HAVE ENOUGH INSURANCE?

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Mar 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

I'm not in the business of selling insurance—believe me. But in all my years of litigating injury cases I find many clients do not have adequate auto insurance coverage. Make sure you have excellent liability coverage. $250,000 coverage doesn't cost much more that $100,000. You should have at le...

Do I Need A Lawyer?

Posted by Charlie Donahue | Feb 17, 2016 | 0 Comments

It depends on the case.Here is a universal rule: It is smart to consult an injury lawyer, to see if you have a case. Don't—for one second—listen to anybody who says you can save money by doing it yourself. Injury law is a specialty.You wouldn't ask a podiatrist to perform open heart surgery, rig...
