Massachusetts law allows victims of injuries to file a civil lawsuit. A personal injury claim can be filed by those who are hurt, while a wrongful death claim can occur after a fatal accident. The goal of the lawsuit is for victims or family members to be compensated for the financial and non-financial losses that tend to follow as a result of an accident.
Filing a lawsuit requires an understanding of Massachusetts laws as well as local court rules in the location where the accident happened.

The coastal town of Lynn, Massachusetts is located on the northeast end of the Greater Boston Area. To its north you will find Marblehead, Salem and Peabody. To the east are the towns of Woburn, Lexington and Medford. Southwest of town is Boston, the largest city in Massachusetts.
Settled in 1629 and incorporated in 1630 as Saugus, Lynn got its current name when the town was incorporated in 1850 as a city. Lynn was named after a town in Essex, England. The main industry in the city at this time was shoe making; however Lynn also had other thriving industries in its history as well. In fact, one of the first two General Electric Plants was in Lynn.
Lynn is sometimes called The City of Firsts, but more often called the City of Sin, due to the historically high crime rate. Residents and visitors are at risk of injuries not only when negligent security makes them vulnerable to criminal acts but also when motorists, medical professionals, property owners and product manufacturers fail to live up to basic legal obligations.
