Kingston is a pleasant coastal town, nestled along the bay and home to nearly 13,000 residents. Originally inhabited by Native Americans of the Wampanoag tribe, the area was later part of Plymouth after the Mayflower came ashore in 1620 and was ultimately incorporated as a separate municipality. The town made its name as a center of the shipbuilding industry in 19th century and remains the site of the country’s longest continuously running boat yard, the Jones River Landing. Notable current and former residents include Governor William Bradford, actor Chris Cooper and author Percy Keese Fitzhugh.Suing for Personal Injury in Massachusetts
At the Law Offices of John C. Manoog III, we understand just how difficult it can be to recuperate from an injury. We represent clients related to the full spectrum of accident injury matters, including those related to:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Dog bites
- Bike accidents
The pain and stress are enough to deal with, not to mention finding a way to pay doctor and medical bills. The good news is that state law allows a person who has been injured to hold the responsible parties legally liable. The damages typically available in personal injury cases include money for missed work, medical costs and property damage, as well as remedies for pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
These cases often involve claims for negligence, the legal theory under which an injured person may sue another person or entity for breaching a “duty of care” owed to the injured person. For example, property owners generally have the duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of any hazards of which they know or should know. A person suing for negligence must prove both the breach of the duty and that it caused the person’s injury.
In certain tragic cases involving fatal injuries, the family of the deceased may also sue for wrongful death. In order to establish a wrongful death claim, the person suing (plaintiff) must show that the person or entity being sued (defendant) caused the death by negligence, a “wanton or reckless act,” or breach of a warranty. The wrongful death suit must be filed by the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate.How We Can Help You
