Plymouth is located in the Plymouth Pinelands. It is bordered on the southwest by Wareham, Carver to the west, Bourne to the southeast, and Kingston to the north. Plymouth is the oldest town in New England and is the the largest municipality by area in Massachusetts, Plymouth has a total area of 134 square miles, but 37.5 square miles of the town is water.
Plymouth has seen considerable growth in the last three decades because of its attractive amenities. Among other attractions, the town offers residents and visitors access to nine public beaches. Due to its close proximity to the water, many people take advantage of swimming, boating, fishing, and parasailing activities. This increases the chances for injury causing accidents.

Massachusetts law allows Plymouth accident victims to recover compensation for many different losses including:
- Wrongful death damages if a family member is killed
- Financial losses from the accident including medical expenses, missed work and lost earnings, and reduced earning potential for permanent injuries.
- Non-economic losses including a reduced quality of life, pain and discomfort, and emotional problems due to the accident or injuries.
You can recover funds for these losses by filing a civil lawsuit or negotiating an out-of-court settlement. You will usually be dealing with an insurance company when it comes to settlement negotiations, since both individuals and companies are covered by insurance for most common injury causes like car accidents or unsafe properties. Insurers aren’t on your side and will be trying to pay you as little as possible, so having an advocate with knowledge of the value of your case is important.
A Plymouth accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, LLC, can talk to the insurer on your behalf, send a demand letter to try to negotiate a settlement on your terms, and conduct an investigation so you can prove your right to compensation. Our attorneys are also experienced litigators who are ready to present your case to a jury. No matter who hurt you, we can help. Give us a call to schedule a free consultation and learn more.
