Nantucket Personal Injury Lawyer

Nantucket Personal Injury Lawyers

The Island of Nantucket is home to the region’s most popular beaches and a bustling summer economy.   Not everyone, however, is a summer Nantucket tourist.  Locals work the island year round, sometimes taking two or three jobs at a time.  Many of those jobs are in the trades and the fishing industry, and consequently, lead to a host of work-place and construction accidents. 

Unfortunately, many Nantucket residents are limited to those law firms on the island – a small grouping of firms that, instead of specializing in personal injury law, are general practice firms, taking any case that walks in the door.  And if your lawsuit is against a locally-based company, chances are the aggressive representation you would expect from a lawyer, may take a back seat to local politics.  With only so many law firms on the island, it’s just a matter of time before they think twice about suing the same companies that may hire them down the road and offer up a generous retainer.  

Nantucket residents deserve better.  Combies Hanson, P.C. is a Boston-based law firm with no corporate clients tied to the island. We care about one thing: aggressively pursuing your claim and making sure you’re satisfied with our services.  Our client-base is overwhelming made up of referrals from former clients.  In short, we want to handle your case well enough that you recommend us to your friends and family.  Period.

A small sampling of Nantucket personal injury cases that we handle are as follows:

  • Nantucket construction accidents and injuries

Additionally, Combies Hanson, P.C. is well equipped to help our regions hardest working year-rounders so you don’t have to come to Boston.  Many times, we can determine if you have a case with a simple phone call, although we have no trouble getting on the Steamship Authority Ferry to come visit in person or appear in Nantucket Court.
