Nicknamed the “City of Presidents,” Quincy is probably best known as the birthplace of U.S. presidents John and John Quincy Adams, not to mention patriot and Declaration of Independence signatory John Hancock. Home to the first commercial railroad, the city was an important granite producer and shipbuilding center in our nation’s early days. Today, Quincy’s impact on American business is most evident through two major chains that got their start within the city’s borders: Howard Johnson’s and Dunkin Donuts.Suing for Personal Injury
Over our combined 146 years of legal experience, our lawyers have seen just about every type of injury accident. We understand the significant pain and stress these events can cause, particularly for someone who’s injured through no fault of his or her own. The good news is that you have a legal right to seek monetary damages from each and every responsible party. We help clients seek recovery following accidents involving matters such as:
Many Massachusetts personal injury cases include claims for negligence, a legal theory under which a person who fails to act in a reasonably safe manner under the circumstances may be held liable for any injuries that he or she causes. Typically, a person suing (plaintiff) for negligence must show that the person or entity being sued (defendant) breached a duty of care owed to the plaintiff and that this breach caused the plaintiff to suffer an injury. Drivers owe others on the road the duty to operate their cars in a reasonably safe manner, for example, and product makers are expected to take certain steps to ensure that their wares aren’t hazardous when they offer them for sale.
State law personal injury cases are considered under a comparative negligence standard, which requires the injured party to show that he or she wasn’t more responsible for the accident than the defendant. For example, a plaintiff who is found to be 35 percent responsible for a car accident for failing to brake in time can still get damages for 65 percent of the injuries he or she incurred due to the crash.
Negligence and comparative negligence are just two of a number of legal principles that may arise in a personal injury case. As a result, it’s important to consult a competent and experienced lawyer before filing suit.Offering Free Consultations
