The town of Yarmouth is a storied seafaring community whose quaint, coastal allure invites visitors and locals alike. Originally inhabited by Native Americans of the Wampanoag tribe, the area was later incorporated as part of the Plymouth Colony in 1639. Once a quiet farming and fishing hamlet, the town has retained much of its Old New England charm and is a popular destination for summer vacationers. Yarmouth’s 28 square miles are home to about 25,000 people year round. Notable current and former residents include writer Edward Gorey and statesman George Thatcher.Assert Your Right to Compensation
If you have been injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle crash, an incident of medical malpractice, or any other type of accident, you have the right to seek legal remedies from those responsible. This is often true even if you are partly to blame for the accident.
State law authorizes a victim to seek a wide range of damages. Chief among them are compensatory damages, which are designed to make a person whole after an accident by covering medical costs, missed wages, and other expenses resulting from the harm. Many personal injury cases also include claims for damages related to pain and suffering or emotional distress. Juries often take into account the person’s age, as well as his or her health and condition prior to the accident, in calculating these damages. They also consider evidence of related psychological harm. Finally, punitive damages may be available in certain cases as a way to punish a person or entity for particularly callous behavior.Proving a Negligence Claim
In order to assert the right to compensation, a person hurt in an accident usually needs to sue the responsible party for negligence. This legal theory holds individuals and entities liable for needlessly hazardous behavior that causes harm to someone else. A person filing a negligence claim must show that the defendant breached a duty of care owed to the victim and that this breach led directly to the accident and quantifiable damages. Drivers, for instance, owe others on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe way and generally will be responsible for crashes that they cause by speeding, failing to signal, drinking and driving, or engaging in other unsafe activities behind the wheel.Discuss Your Injury Claim with a Yarmouth Attorney
