Taunton is a city in Bristol County, Massachusetts of approximately 56,000 inhabitants. Founded in 1637 by members of the Plymouth colony, it is one the oldest towns in the United States. Known for its rich history and industrial legacy, Taunton continues to shine as the “Silver City” nestled in the southeastern hub of the state.
For over 50 years, the Taunton personal injury lawyers of Sousa & Sousa have devoted their practice to helping victims injured by the negligence of others. Negligence refers to any breach of duty owed to another. In traffic accidents, negligent drivers breach their duty to other motorists when they fail to pay attention or violate basic traffic laws. When this happens, at-fault parties are liable in damages for any injuries caused by their negligence. Our firm has handled all types of claims involving auto, motorcycle, and hit-and-run accidents and can help you recover compensation for your injury.
Manufacturers are liable to consumers who are injured by a defective product. Even distributors can breach the implied warranty of merchantability by leasing or selling a defective product that severely injures the consumer. This includes harm caused by any “foreseeable use” of the good. Massachusetts law defines “product liability” as any liability for damages resulting from the manufacture, design, distribution, or sale of a defective product. An experienced product liability lawyer can help you recoup compensation for your harm.
Health care providers owe a duty of care to patients. Doctors breach that duty through negligent treatment and botched procedures that can seriously harm the patient. Pharmacies can breach their duty by failing to properly counsel patients or giving them the wrong prescription. This duty extends to communicating with the doctor and warning the patient of possible drug interactions or side effects. Giving incorrect advice or providing the wrong dose can cause serious harm to the patient. Health care providers who commit medical malpractice or pharmacy negligence are liable to the patient for any resulting injury.
Landlords and property owners have a duty to protect invitees from unreasonable harm. This means periodically checking the premises and performing any necessary repairs. Owners are therefore liable when they fail to prevent or fix a dangerous condition that injures the invitee. Dangerous conditions may include exposure to toxic chemicals, loose handrails that cause slip-and-fall accidents, or owning a dangerous pet. Property and business owners who are aware of the condition and allow it to persist become liable to the injured party for any harm that results. Sousa & Sousa has helped numerous victims of dog bites, lead paint poisoning, and work-related accidents obtain compensation for their harm.
