Randolph is a town in Norfolk County, Massachusetts of approximately 32,000 inhabitants. First incorporated in 1793, the town was named after Peyton Randolph, the first president of the Continental Congress. Famous for its thriving shoe industry, Randolph is home to many historic places, including the original Chateau de Ville and the Jonathan Belcher House.
For over 50 years, the Randolph personal injury attorneys at Sousa & Sousa have fought for victims injured by another’s negligence. “Negligence” generally refers to the breach of a legal duty owed by one person or party to another. In car accidents, motorists breach their duty to others when drive recklessly, cause an accident, and injure others. When this happens, at-fault parties become legally liable for any property damage or injury caused by their negligence. This may mean compensating the injured party for medical expenses, lost income, and other costs. Even if you are injured in a hit and run accident, you may still be entitled to uninsured motorist benefits from your own insurance company. Sousa & Sousa has secured financial and legal relief for thousands of victims injured in auto, boat, and motorcycle accidents.
Property and business owners have a legal duty to protect invitees from unreasonable harm. This may require periodically inspecting their premises for dangerous conditions and making necessary repairs. Owners become liable if they fail to prevent or fix a dangerous condition that injures an invitee who is on their propertys. Invitees can include employees, consumers, or other people on the premises for any legal purpose. Slip-and-fall accidents, exposure to toxic chemicals, and animal attacks are only a few examples of injuries caused by dangerous conditions on property. Owners who knowingly allow a dangerous condition to persist are liable to the injured party for any harm that results. Our premises liability attorneys fight to ensure victims of dog bites, lead paint poisoning, construction and work accidents obtain compensation for their harm.
Health care providers are also held to a high legal standard. Medical professionals breach their duty to patients by providing substandard care. This may refer to any negligent act, from giving patients the wrong diagnosis or treatment, to botching an operation. Pharmacies can also be negligent when they fail to properly counsel or dispense the correct medication to patients. Pharmacies and prescribing physicians have a legal responsibility to warn patients about dangerous side effects or drug interactions. Any error in a patient’s prescription or dose of medication can cause serious harm. Patients may recover compensation for injuries caused by acts of medical malpractice or pharmacy negligence.
Manufacturers are liable to consumers who are injured by using a defective product. Hundreds of consumer goods are recalled each year for safety reason because their use can cause accidents that hurt the buyer. Even distributors can breach the implied warranty of merchantability by leasing or selling a defective product that severely injures the consumer. Buyers may sue for harm caused by any intended or “foreseeable” use of the product, recovering damages for injuries resulting from flaws in the product’s manufacture, design, import, or sale. An experienced defective product lawyer will ensure that manufacturers and vendors are held liable for your harm.
