Bristol County, Massachusetts
When an accident is caused by negligence, injured victims and their family members can face devastating losses. A claim for damages can be brought, but the case must be handled in a court where the injuries took place or where the defendant has enough connections that the court has the right to hear the case.
In Bristol County, MA, victims who sustain injuries need to talk to a lawyer with knowledge of local court rules who can help them to navigate court procedures and file a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Because many cases are resolved out-of-court, having an attorney with a strong local reputation advocating for clients is also important so defendants and insurers responsible for covering accident losses know that they will have a tough fight on their hands if they try to settle for less than the case is worth.
