Personal Injury Attorneys Representing Victims in Cotuit and Surrounding Areas

The Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III is dedicated to asserting the rights of accident victims. Our Cotuit personal injury lawyers represent people injured in car crashes, slip and falls, and other preventable events throughout Cape Cod and elsewhere in Massachusetts. With over 146 years of combined legal experience, we offer clients the benefits of substantial resources and a thorough understanding of the complexities that may arise in their claims. Our lawyers work diligently to protect the rights of the people whom we represent to the full scope of the compensation that they deserve.

Pursuing Damages in Accident Cases

Massachusetts law gives victims the right to seek compensation and other remedies from those responsible for causing their harm. The damages available in these cases are designed to cover items such as medical costs, property damage, missed wages due to time away from work, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. In some cases, the family of a person injured in an accident may also seek “loss of consortium” damages to compensate them for the loss of a spouse or parent's companionship, support, love, and guidance. Family members can also sue for wrongful death in tragic cases in which a victim does not survive an accident.

Most personal injury cases are based on negligence claims. State law imposes a “duty of care” on people and entities in a wide variety of situations. A retail store or other property owner, for example, is obligated to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of hazards of which the owner knows or should know. Doctors are expected to treat their patients with a certain level of care, based on their specialized knowledge and training. A driver, meanwhile, is required to operate his or her vehicle in a safe manner and to refrain from engaging in dangerous activity behind the wheel. People who fail to live up to the applicable standard of care are likely to be considered negligent and responsible for any resulting injuries.

There are a wide range of legal and procedural issues that a person considering suing for negligence should keep in mind. These include deadlines controlling when to sue. Massachusetts’ statute of limitations gives you three years to file suit in personal injury cases. The clock typically starts running on the date of the accident, but that deadline may be pushed back under certain circumstances. This is one reason why it is imperative to consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident.
