Why Choose Sousa & Sousa?Personal Injury Claims Can Arise Under Many Circumstances
Drivers, for example, have a duty to safely operate their cars. When they breach that duty by driving under the influence or violating basic traffic laws, they become liable for any accident-related injuries. This provides a legal recourse for victims to recover damages from negligent drivers and their insurers with the assistance of a Brockton personal injury attorney. Whether the victim is a pedestrian, cyclist, or other motorist, a negligent driver is liable for any property damage or personal injury that results.
Property owners have a duty to invitees to keep the property safe. This means performing routine inspections and necessary repairs. Failing to maintain one’s premises in a reasonably safe condition gives rise to a premises liability claim. If invitees are injured by a dangerous condition on the property, they can hold the landlord or owner liable in damages for their harm. A dangerous condition can be loose handrails that cause a slip-and-fall accident, lead paint that poisons the tenants, or a dog that gets loose and bites a neighbor or a slip and fall as a result of icy conditions.
When a medical provider’s negligent conduct causes injury or death to the patient, the responsible person or parties are liable for damages to the victim or family. Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals can breach their duty to patients in a variety of ways, from the improper diagnosis or treatment of a condition, to simple neglect. Even the most subtle mistakes during routine medical procedures can result in severe injury or even death. Negligence is possible at any stage of medical treatment and can give rise to a medical malpractice claim.
Massachusetts law defines “ product liability ” as any liability for damages arising out of the manufacture, design, lease or sale of a product. Under this law, negligent manufacturers, merchants, and distributors are liable for injuries caused by any foreseeable use of the product. Because manufacturers are in the best position to correct product defects or warn consumers of their danger, they are liable in damages to consumers injured by their goods. The injured party may recoup compensation for any property damage, personal injury, and other damages.Sousa & Sousa Is Here To Help You
