Newton Personal Injury Lawyer
Newton, Massachusetts was one of the earliest commuter suburbs of Boston along the Boston and Worcester railroad. Today, however, millions of people all over the world see Newton each year during the Boston Marathon, when runners struggle up Newton’s “Heartbreak Hill.” Considered the “best” city in the United States to live in by Money Magazine, Newton has a rich history, is host to Boston College among others, and close to Greater Boston’s major universities, and the vast Massachusetts natural resources.
In addition to being one of the best places to live, in 2010 Newton was considered to be the second most affluent urban area (over 75,000 people) in the United States. This was based on the Bizjournal Portfolio, using such factors as per capita income, median household income, salaries, and home value.
Settled in 1630 as a part of Cambridge, and renamed Newtown in 1691 and Newton in 1766, Newton was established as a city in 1873. The early industry, like many other cities in New England where there was a river, was mills, with water coming from Newton Upper Falls and Newton Lower Falls.
Considered an amalgamation of villages, Newton consists of the following 13 distinct areas: Auburndale, Chestnut Hill, Newton Centre, Newton Corner, Newton Highlands, Newton Lower Falls, Newton Upper Falls, Newtonville, Nonantum, Oak Hill, Thompsonville, Waban and West Newton.
While the F.B.I. consistently finds Newton as one of the safest cities based on crime statistics, this does not stop Newton motor vehicle accidents or personal injuries in Newton. The Newton District Court has its share of those accident cases.
Located in Middlesex County, Newton has its own District Court, at 1309 Washington Street, West Newton. The Superior Court is located on Thorndike Street, in Cambridge, but is temporarily located at 200 World Trade Center, Woburn, during renovations. There is another Middlesex Superior Court, located at Lowell, where jury trials are heard.
