The firm has been serving communities throughout Cape Cod since 1994, and our lawyers have a proud history of helping clients get back on their feet after suffering devastating harm. We understand that being involved in an accident can be a difficult and stressful experience, especially when it is caused by no fault of your own. Our lawyers work tirelessly to help clients move on with their lives by trying to maximize the compensation to which they may be entitled.Asserting Your Rights after a Devastating Accident
If you have been hurt in a car crash, a slip and fall, or another accident, Massachusetts law gives you the right to seek damages from those who were responsible for causing your injuries. This may be a negligent driver who struck you, a property owner that failed to properly maintain its premises, a doctor who committed a surgical error, or a manufacturer that released an unsafe product to the public, among other parties. The remedies typically available in personal injury cases tend to include property damage, medical bills, and missed wages, as well as compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress. In some cases, the family of an injured person can also seek "loss of consortium" damages to compensate them for the loss of a spouse’s or parent's companionship, support, love, and guidance.
A negligence lawsuit is one of the most common ways to obtain these remedies. State law imposes a “duty of care” on most parties to act in a way that minimizes the risk of foreseeable harm to those who could be affected by their conduct. In the context of car accidents, for example, all drivers are required to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. They are expected to refrain from speeding, drinking and driving, and using a cell phone behind the wheel, along with a wide range of other activities that put everyone on the road at risk. Someone who does not live up to this duty and causes an accident as a result is likely to be legally liable if the victim can draw a direct causal link from the defendant’s careless actions to his or her injuries.Consult an Injury Attorney in Onset
Situated along Buzzards Bay in the Town of Wareham, Onset Village is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Cape.” The 1.3-square mile village was originally developed in the 1880s as a resort community for followers of the Spiritualist faith. Today, it is home to just over 1,000 full-time residents, but it welcomes numerous visitors from across the country each year.
