Boston Personal Injury Lawyers
Boston, the most populous city in Massachusetts and the state capital, was founded by English Puritans in 1630. The city lays claim to a number of “firsts” including the first public school (Boston Latin School), the first subway system (the ‘T’), and the first all-female law school (New England School of Law). Boston is located along the Charles River in eastern Massachusetts and covers 48.43 square miles of land. It has 21 official neighborhoods, including Allston/Brighton, Charlestown, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and Roxbury. As of 2010, Boston has a population of 617,594, many of whom are college students and young professionals. Boston’s reputation as a college town is bolstered by its numerous universities, the largest being Boston University, Northeastern University, Suffolk University, and Boston College. The city is home to several of the highest ranked hospitals in the United States (Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital), and many other top medical facilities are linked with universities.
