Raynham is a town in Bristol County, Massachusetts of approximately 13,000 inhabitants. First settled in 1639, the town was named after the English town of Raynham in Norfolk. Famous for its iron works, Raynham was the epicenter of American shipbuilding in the 18th century.
For over 50 years, the Raynham personal injury attorneys of Sousa & Sousa have been dedicated to fighting for victims injured by negligence. Negligence generally refers to the breach of a legal duty owed to another person. In car accidents, motorists breach their duty to others if they drive recklessly and cause an accident that injures people. When this happens, the parties at-fault become liable for any property damage or injuries caused by their negligence. This may include compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and other costs. Even if you were injured in a hit and run accident, you may be entitled to uninsured motorist benefits by filing a claim with your own insurance company. Sousa & Sousa has obtained legal and financial relief for many victims injured in auto, boat, and motorcycle accidents.
Property and business owners have a legal duty to protect invitees from unreasonable harm. This may mean periodically inspecting their premises for dangerous conditions or making necessary repairs. Owners are liable when they fail to prevent or fix a dangerous condition that injures an invitee on their property. Invitees can include employees, consumers, or others who enter the property for any legal purpose. Slip-and-fall accidents, exposure to toxic chemicals, and animal attacks are only a few examples of injuries caused by a dangerous condition on property. Owners who knowingly allow a dangerous condition to persist are liable to people for any harm that results. Our premises liability attorneys help victims of dog bites, lead paint poisoning, construction and work accidents obtain compensation for their injury.
Health care providers are also held to a high standard of care. Medical professionals breach their duty to patients by providing substandard care. This can include any source of negligence, from giving a patient the wrong diagnosis or treatment, to a performing a botched surgery or procedure. Pharmacies can also be negligent when they fail to properly dispense the correct medication to patients, or counsel them about the correct and safe way to use a prescription. Pharmacies have a duty to warn patients about dangerous drug interactions or a prescription’s side effects. Any error in filling a patient’s prescription or dose can cause serious harm. Patients may recover compensation for injuries caused by acts of medical malpractice or pharmacy negligence.
Manufacturers are liable to consumers injured because they used a defective product. Hundreds of consumer goods are recalled each year for safety issues because they cause accidents that can harm buyers. 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. They are entitled to damages for injuries caused by any defect in the manufacture, design, or sale of a product. An experienced defective product lawyer will ensure that manufacturers and vendors are held liable for your harm.
