The oldest town on Cape Cod, Sandwich was established by European immigrants in 1639, nearly 140 years before the American Revolution. This captivating seaside community nestled on the island's northwest corner is named for a sister seaport in Kent, England.
Today the town of more than 20,000 residents welcomes visitors with its New England charm and unique history. The town boardwalk, art galleries, and antique shops are popular visitor destinations, as are Sandwich's various inns and historic residences. Notable current and former Sandwich residents include Hall of Fame hockey player Bobby Orr, comedian Sam Brown, and children's story author Thornton Burgess.

Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen. Whether it's a rear end car crash, a slip and fall in a grocery store, or an incident of medical malpractice, accidents often come with serious consequences. The good news is that a person injured in an accident has the legal right to seek monetary recovery from those responsible. Available damages often include those related to:
- Doctor's bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering.
In order to hold someone responsible for their role in an accident, you must establish legal liability. Negligence is the most common theory on which a person injured in an accident seeks to recover a legal remedy. This theory requires the person suing to establish that the person being sued (the defendant) owed a "duty of care" (or responsibility to act in a certain manner), that the defendant breached this duty, and that the breach caused an injury.
For example, motorists owe one another the duty of driving with reasonable care under Massachusetts law, and the failure to do so will generally leave a driver liable for any injuries caused. Similarly, professionals like doctors and pharmacists can be held legally responsible for violating the heightened duty of care they owe to people who are their patients or clients.
Negligence comes into play in a wide variety of accidents. We have helped clients get back on their feet by pursuing damages arising from the following scenarios, among others:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Wrongful death claims
- Product liability claims
- Improper prescription claims
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
- Workers’ compensation
- Dog bite claims
Regardless of the type of accident, we understand just how difficult and stressful the recovery process can be. Our goal is to help clients focus on physical recovery, and give them the confidence that we are fighting aggressively to protect their legal rights and pursue the best available legal remedy from those responsible.Why Choose John C.
