If you have been hurt in an accident, you likely have the right to seek money damages from those responsible. This often includes reimbursement for doctors’ bills, missed wages due to time off work, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. In some extreme situations, it may also include additional punitive damages meant to punish and deter particularly callous behavior. The direct relatives of a person hurt in an accident sometimes may also be able to seek damages for “loss of consortium.” This remedy is meant to compensate for the loss of the injured person’s companionship, support, love, and guidance.
Most personal injury cases revolve around claims for negligence. An accident victim can prove negligence by establishing that the person or entity being sued (the defendant) breached a “duty of care” owed to the victim and that this breach caused the victim to be hurt and to sustain quantifiable damages. A property owner, for instance, owes a certain duty of care to people who are lawfully on the premises so that they are not exposed to unreasonable risks of harm of which the owner knew or should have known.
A similar principle is true for drivers of motor vehicles, who owe others on the road a duty of care to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. For example, drivers are expected to obey traffic signals, use turn signals when changing lanes, maintain safe speeds, and refrain from dangerous activity like drinking and driving. They may be liable for any harm that happens when they fail to live up to this standard.Consult a Brewster Attorney When Seeking Compensation for an Accident
Nestled along Cape Cod Bay, Brewster was settled in the mid-17th century as part of the town of Harwich. It was named for the first religious leader of the Pilgrims who established Plymouth Colony. Brewster was the site of one of the earliest woolen mills and was known early as a stopping point for wealthy seafarers. Many of the mansions built in those days now serve as bed and breakfasts that attract modern visitors to the Cape from across the country.
