Injury Lawyers Representing Buzzards Bay Residents

The Buzzards Bay injury attorneys at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III represent people who have been hurt because of the carelessness or wrongdoing of others. Our firm offers several decades of combined legal experience to help victims who have been involved in a car crash or another accident seek the full range of remedies to which they may be entitled. We focus exclusively on personal injury cases, and we have achieved numerous high-value settlements that illustrate our strong history of success in these cases.

Pursuing a Negligence Claim for Compensation

Accidents come in nearly countless forms, from highway collisions to slip and falls to encounters with defective products to incidents of medical malpractice. The law that applies to each of these situations is essentially similar, however, since most victims will file a negligence claim to seek damages. The compensation typically available in these cases covers money for medical bills and missed wages, as well as compensation for property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Although these cases are often settled through negotiations, sometimes they go to trial. The plaintiff’s ability to prove the liability of a defendant usually hinges on whether he or she can establish the four elements of a negligence claim: a duty of care, a breach, causation, and damages. For instance, drivers generally have a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. A driver who speeds, gets behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or operates a vehicle in an overly aggressive manner is likely to be found to have breached the duty of care. The injured person must also show that this breach led to the crash, such that it likely would not have happened otherwise. Also, quantifiable damages must have arisen from the accident.

Advocating for Victims against Insurance Companies

Haggling with an insurance company can be one of the more frustrating parts of recuperating from an accident, even for someone who has a strong claim for compensation. State law obligates insurers to act with “candor and fairness” in handling claims. That standard is usually interpreted by courts to mean “good faith.” Still, many insurance companies often try to limit or even avoid paying out legitimate claims. It is important that you seek the advice and counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney before considering any offers that an insurance company makes in order to be sure that they are not trying to sell you short.
