The town of Hanover was established in 1727, about 100 years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. More than three decades later, it retains a “country town” feel characterized by stone fences, open spaces, and untouched woodlands. Manufacturing activity rose in the 19th century but has waned since then, leaving Hanover a largely residential area. It serves as a bedroom community for commuters to nearby Boston. Notable current and former residents include historic American scientist and investor George Washington Carver, as well as actors Nichole Hiltz and Faith Salie.Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve
Recovering reimbursement for injuries sustained in an accident often means haggling with large insurance companies. These corporations can be hesitant to handle even the most deserving of claims and may seek to limit or reduce payouts by taking advantage of victims and their families when pain, stress, and uncertainty may affect their ability to make informed decisions.
If insurance fails to cover your costs and losses after a crash, you can hold whoever harmed you accountable through a negligence lawsuit. This requires a victim to prove four basic elements. First, you must show that the defendant owed you a duty to take reasonable care and avoid any unnecessary risks. The next step consists of proving that the defendant violated this duty through some careless conduct. In the situation of a highway collision, for example, a driver might breach his or her duty by running a red light or texting while driving.
The last two elements of a negligence claim require the victim to show that he or she was hurt as a direct result of the defendant’s careless behavior, and that he or she incurred quantifiable damages that flowed directly from the injuries. It is necessary to prove that the accident would not have happened if the defendant had acted as an ordinary person would have behaved in similar circumstances. If all of these elements are satisfied, a victim may be able to recover compensation ranging from pain and suffering and emotional distress to medical expenses and lost wages.Hanover Attorneys Ready to Protect Your Rights
