Tort & Liability

Since 1921, Avery Dooley & Noone has represented insureds, individuals, and business entities in the areas of tort and liability. Our attorneys handle tort and liability cases and matters throughout Massachusetts and New England. Our highly skilled trial lawyers litigate cases in all of the state and federal courts of Massachusetts. We have also been specially admitted to practice in other states. Although we handle simple tort claims aggressively, efficiently, and cost effectively, we specialize in complex, sophisticated and high-exposure cases in the product liability, construction, and premises liability areas.

We have been representing national insurers and self-insured entities for over 75 years. Our wealth of experience and the quality of our attorneys enable us to provide the insurance industry with comprehensive legal services at the highest level. Some of our attorneys practicing in this area were trained in the insurance industry. Because of our unique background, training, and experience, we provide sophisticated coverage analysis, opinions, and advice to our insurer clients. We fully appreciate the collaborative effort needed to successfully defend a claim. By keeping our insurers apprised of all developments in our cases, we eliminate the element of surprise.

Our firm has obtained favorable results for our clients through either motions to dismiss or summary judgments during the early stages of litigation. This allows us to provide peace of mind—as well as cost savings—to both our clients and their insurers. Our high level of skill and preparation consistently yields positive results in both arbitrations and mediations.

If pre-trial resolution is not possible, our trial lawyers have the training, experience and ability to try even the most complex case to conclusion. Because of our expertise in both insurance coverage and contract law, we identify and zealously pursue risk transfer at every opportunity. We understand and appreciate our insurance industry clients and provide the highest level of legal services at competitive rates; contact us if you would like to hear more about our services.
