Broken Bones

Dedicated Injury Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Cape Cod Victims

At the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, our injury lawyers have more than 146 years of combined experience representing individuals in Cape Cod and nearby areas who have suffered broken bones or other serious harm. We understand how difficult the recovery process can be for a victim and his or her family. Our attorneys help clients focus on physical and emotional recuperation with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that we are fighting aggressively to seek the compensation that they need to heal.

Pursue Compensation Through a Negligence Claim

Broken bones, or fractures, are all too common in accidents. They may be just one of several injuries that a person involved in a car crash, truck collision, or slip and fall has to endure. While filing a lawsuit can never take you back to the time before the accident, individuals have the right to hold accountable those who caused their harm. Types of damages that may be available in successful injury claims include reimbursement for doctors’ bills and other medical costs, missed wages due to being unable to work, vehicle or other property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Accident cases often revolve around the legal theory of negligence, under which a person or entity that fails to live up to a certain “duty of care” is considered liable for any harm that results. Doctors and pharmacists, for instance, owe a professional duty of care to the people whom they serve. When they act in a way that doesn’t meet this standard, they should be called to account for it. Similarly, drivers owe others on the road the obligation to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner to avoid foreseeable risks of harm.

In order to prove negligence, an injured person usually must show that the defendant owed him or her a duty of care, that the defendant breached this duty, that the breach caused the accident, and that actual damages were incurred as a result. The state’s modified comparative negligence rule allows a victim to recover compensation even if he or she is partly responsible for his or her own harm. The amount of reimbursement will be reduced by the percentage of the injured person’s fault. Usually a victim who is determined to be 50 percent or less at fault for the accident is eligible to be compensated for his or her injuries. Conversely, someone who is more than 50 percent responsible for an accident usually cannot receive compensation for damages such as pain and suffering.

Massachusetts law uses a joint and several liability system. When more than one party is to blame for an accident, each of them can be called to account individually for all of the damages that are awarded. A liable person or entity ordered to pay the full amount of compensation can then seek to get some of that money back from others who shared the responsibility.
