Hanover Car Accidents
Situated just 25 miles from Boston, Hanover is an historic Massachusetts town on the South Shore. It lies just south of Route 3 and can be accessed by Routes 123 and 139. The popular Hanover Mall is situated near the junction of Routes 3 and 53. The car accident attorneys at the Law Offices of John C. Manoog, III represent people throughout Plymouth County and elsewhere in Massachusetts who have been injured in accidents. We combine more than 150 years of legal experience to help victims get back on their feet after a crash by obtaining the full compensation available under the law. Our Hanover car accident lawyers understand the tactics that insurance companies often use to try to dodge payouts and the evidence that judges and juries often find persuasive in determining whether liability exists and assessing the scope of the damages. Our long history of achievements includes a number of six- and seven-figure verdicts and settlements in car crash cases.Pursuing Compensation for Your Injuries
No matter how careful you are, being involved in a car accident is always a risk. When a crash occurs, it can cause serious injuries – like spinal cord injuries or brain trauma – or even death for the people involved. Even a seemingly minor fender bender can cause whiplash and other significant medical impairments.
If you or a loved one has been hit on a road in the Hanover area, our car accident attorneys can help you seek compensation from the driver responsible for the crash. That might be a negligent driver whose distracted behavior behind the wheel caused a collision. It might also be a car manufacturer that put a shoddy vehicle on the road or a company whose driver struck you while they were on the job.
The damages that are generally available in Massachusetts car accident cases include compensation for medical bills, property damage, missed wages due to time away from work, and any reduction in future earning capacity resulting from the collision. Additional damages for pain, suffering, and emotional distress are also often available. In the event that a person loses their life in a fatal accident, his or her family has the right to seek different types of damages through a wrongful death action.Proving a Negligence Case
Most of the cases that our Hanover car accident attorneys bring are based on claims of negligence, a legal theory that makes people and entities liable for failing to live up to a certain “standard of care.” Drivers in Massachusetts, for example, owe others on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe way. That means obeying traffic laws and refraining from dangerous activity like texting and driving or getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. A driver who does not live up to that duty and causes an accident as a result is likely to be found negligent.
To successfully sue for damages in a car accident case, you will need to show that the person or entity that you are suing was negligent and that this negligence directly caused you to be injured. Witness testimony, police reports, and accident reconstruction experts can help establish how the crash happened and who is responsible. Medical records can go a long way in showing the full extent of your injuries.Get Insights from a Car Accident Lawyer in the Hanover Area
