The seaside Town of Hingham is a charming New England community along the banks of the Boston Harbor that is best known for its deep colonial roots. Just 15 miles south of Boston, a trip to Hingham can seem like a walk through time, thanks to the town’s stunning colonial architecture and antique homes. It was originally settled by the British in the 17th century and is named for a sister town in England. Notable current and former residents include Revolutionary War General Benjamin Lincoln, who accepted Cornwallis' sword of surrender at the Siege of Yorktown, as well as Patriots football coach Bill Belichick, Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield, and children’s author Marc Brown.Pursuing Damages from Negligent Parties
Even for the most safe and cautious of people, the truth is that accidents can and will happen. From car, truck and boat crashes to slip and fall accidents and incidents of medical malpractice, these mishaps are an unfortunate part of life that can cause serious harm to those involved.
For accident victims injured through no fault of their own – and those who may share some but not all of the blame – the law gives the opportunity to seek compensation from those responsible. The damages available in accident cases usually include money for related medical and doctors’ bills, missed wages due to time away from work, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
Most personal injury matters revolve around a claim of negligence, in which the victim alleges that another person or entity caused an accident by failing to live up to what is commonly referred to as a “duty of care.” Property owners, for instance, owe visitors a duty to ensure that the premises are reasonably safe and to warn them of any hazards that the owner knows of or should know about. Doctors, similarly, are held to an elevated duty based on their training and expertise. These medical professionals are expected to act with a heightened level of skill and ability when treating patients.
To prove negligence, the person suing (plaintiff) must show that the person or entity being sued (defendant) breached the duty of care and that this breach caused the plaintiff to be harmed and incur actual damages. The victim would then need to detail all of the injuries that he or she sustained as a result of the accident, along with the related medical costs incurred and those likely to be incurred in the future.Discuss Your Injury Claim with an Attorney in Hingham
