Cape Cod Auto Accident Lawyer
Accidents happen so fast. Whether it’s an auto accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle or pedestrian accident. There is no rewind button or slow-motion replay to understand what occurred. You, the other driver and any witnesses may have different accounts of the same event. You and the insurance company will almost surely disagree on fair compensation.
To be properly compensated, you must establish negligence of the other party (liability) and then you must demonstrate the financial and personal impact (damages). The experienced personal injury lawyers of Aiken and Aiken P.C. Personal Injury Attorneys know how to prove these elements to maximize your compensation.
For more than 35 years, our law firm has represented auto accident victims on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, and in surrounding southeastern Massachusetts. Call us today for a free consultation. We have offices in Hyannis and Falmouth.

Auto, Motorcycle, Bicycle or Pedestrian Accident Lawyers on Cape Cod
Our attorneys have recovered many millions of dollars on behalf of clients injured in traffic accidents:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents (18-wheelers or other commercial vehicles)

Trial lawyers Steve Aiken and Paul Aiken personally handle every facet of your case. They commonly visit the accident scene themselves to take photos, talk to witnesses and oversee a thorough investigation. As necessary, they work with professional investigators and accident reconstruction specialists who can piece together the events to prove how the other driver was negligent.
Under Massachusetts law, evidence of your own comparative fault can be used to reduce your compensation or bar you from recovering altogether. Our attorneys skillfully counter claims of comparative negligence and keep the spotlight on the other driver’s careless or reckless behavior.
Working Closely with Clients to Maximize Compensation
The more vividly we can illustrate the impact on your life, the harder it is for insurance companies to downplay your injuries and limit compensation. We work with clients, doctors and other professionals to make sure that you are adequately compensated, especially for serious or permanent injuries. We use day-in-the-life videos and other documentation of the extent of injury and the costs and challenges in rehab and recovery, including projections of future medical needs. We also justify applicable damages for lost earnings, permanent disability, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life.
