Incorporated in 1712, the town of Pembroke is a charming Massachusetts hamlet known for its lush landscape and well-populated fishing ponds and rivers. The town was originally called Mattakeesett (“place of much fish”) by Native Americans of the Wampanoag tribe, and residents still to this day celebrate an annual fish fry that started nearly three centuries ago. Notable current and former residents include Suffolk University founder Gleason Archer, hockey player Kevin Stevens, and composer Harry M. Woods.

At our firm, we understand just how trying and stressful it can be for people who are injured in accidents, especially those caused through no fault of their own. There are often mounting medical bills and unresponsive insurance companies to battle, not to mention the exhausting effort of physical, mental, and emotional recuperation. Our lawyers help clients through this process by allowing them to focus on their recovery with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that we’re fighting to protect their rights.
Negligence is the primary legal theory on which injured persons in Massachusetts sue responsible parties for compensation. In order to prove negligence, a victim must generally show that the person or entity being sued breached a duty of care owed to the injured person and that this breach caused the injury. That means linking the injury directly to the accident, and the defendant’s specific careless conduct, to establish the cause and effect. In car accident cases, for example, this could be shown when a defendant’s car rear-ends the victim’s car because the defendant was speeding, ran a red light, or failed to yield at an intersection.
Much of our work involves dealing with insurance companies who may be hesitant to pay out claims. Massachusetts law obligates insurers to act with “candor and fairness” in handling claims, a standard that’s usually interpreted to mean “good faith.” That means making a significant effort to settle claims and avoid protracted, costly, and often unnecessary litigation. Insurers do not always meet this standard, so you should enlist a knowledgeable lawyer to help ensure that they do.Aggressive Legal Representation in Pembroke
