Franklin County, Massachusetts is a small county of fewer than 75,000 people. Coming into existence on June 24, 1811, Franklin County has been without a local government since the county requested it be eliminated in 1997. State agencies handle all county functions and certain offices such as the Sheriff are elected posts. Considered the most rural part of Massachusetts, Franklin County has 26 towns and is located in the upper Connecticut River Valley. An attraction to the small, rural towns in Franklin County is the simpler, peaceful life. While larger towns and cities are generally considered rife with incidents that require the help of an attorney, accidents, workplace problems and other issues happen in small towns as well. Doctors make mistakes in smaller towns just as they do in big cities. They’re unintentional, but are severely damaging nonetheless. It is during these times that it is important to contact the personal injury attorneys at Joel H. Schwartz, P.C. for legal advice and representation.
