Protecting the Rights of Accident Victims
Serious accidents can be traumatic and devastating situations for everyone involved, including the victim and his or her loved ones. At Lowney Law, LLC, our Boston lawyers have settled and litigated a variety of personal injury claims, including those arising from motor vehicle collisions, slip and falls, dog bites, and more. These lawsuits are typically based on the theory of negligence, which consists of four key elements.
To prevail in a negligence claim, a victim must establish that the defendant owed him or her a duty of care, that the defendant breached that duty with some careless action, that the victim was hurt as a result, and that quantifiable damages arose from the accident. In most situations, individuals and entities can be held accountable for meeting a standard of reasonable care. This means that they must take the same precautions that the ordinary person would take in a similar situation. A breach can consist of any conduct that falls short of the reasonable-person standard, such as when a driver texts behind the wheel or when store employees stack merchandise in a dangerously unstable display.
Damages that may be available depend on the nature and extent of the harm, but injured individuals often seek compensation for both objective and subjective costs and losses. Some examples of economic damages include medical bills, repairs to a vehicle, lost wages and earning capacity, and the costs of future treatment, while non-economic damages often compensate for a victim’s pain and suffering or emotional distress.
An individual or family hoping to pursue a claim after an accident has only a restricted period of time in which to take legal action, which is known as the statute of limitations. You must file your case within the appropriate statute of limitations for your type of case, or you will risk having your right to compensation barred. At Lowney Law, LLC, our Boston lawyers are familiar with the procedural rules governing this area of the law, and we understand the importance of acting promptly to assert your rights.
