Marion is a charming coastal community that welcomes residents and visitors year round with its inviting scenery, rich history, and small town appeal. Settled in 1679, the town was originally called “Sippican,” the handle that Native Americans of the Wampanoag tribe gave to the river that flows through modern day Marion and culminates at a harbor in the center of the town. To this day, Marion remains a popular destination for boating and fishing. Notable current and former residents include presidents Grover Cleveland and Franklin D. Roosevelt, novelist Henry James, actor James Spader, and television personality Geraldo Rivera.Suing for Accident Injuries
Our local attorneys handle a full slate of personal injury and other cases for clients in Marion and across the region. That includes matters involving:
- Car accidents
- Truck crashes
- Bicycle accidents
- Boat collisions
- Improperly filled prescriptions
- Defective products
- Social Security Disability
- Birth injuries
- Workers’ compensation
- Dog bites
- Products liability claims
Many of these and other claims proceed under the legal theory of negligence, by which an injured person can hold another responsible for damages. In order to do so, the injured person (plaintiff) must show that the person being sued (defendant) owed the plaintiff a duty of care and that the defendant’s failure to live up to this duty caused the plaintiff’s injury. Business owners, for example, are generally required to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of any hazards of which the owner knows or should know. An owner who breaches this duty can potentially be held liable for any accidents that result.
In Massachusetts, accident victims typically have three years from the date of their injury to take legal action against the responsible parties, so it’s important to speak with a qualified attorney as soon as you can after you are injured due to someone else’s negligent conduct. Even if your own negligence contributed in part to your accident, you still may be able to recover damages. Under Massachusetts law, courts apply a modified comparative negligence doctrine which provides that as long as you were no more than 51 percent at fault for your injuries, you can still recover compensation from other negligent parties.Fighting for You
