Wakefield Brain Injury

Wakefield is located about 12.5 miles north of the city of Boston. Route 128 and I-95 to the north of the town (together known as the Yankee Division Highway), I-93 to the South and Route 129 running through the town as Main Street, Wakefield is no stranger to motor vehicle accidents. In addition, Wakefield’s two commuter rail stations bring additional vehicles to the town’s roads. The heavy flow of traffic gives rise to an increased chance at an accident which may result in a serious brain injury.Wakefield is home to a variety of public and private schools. The area schools offer a variety of athletic and after school programs such as, football, basketball, lacrosse, baseball, and more. These activities can lead to serious brain injuries.If you, or a loved one, have been involved in an assault, sporting accident, car accident, slip and fall, or any other occurrence based on the negligent or reckless acts of another, take certain steps to protect yourself.
