A lawyer representing “several” of the victims injured when an SUV crashed through an Apple store in Hingham earlier this month says that the owners and operators of the store location, as well as Apple, are partially responsible.

“Our experts tell us that this catastrophe was 100% preventable,” said Doug Sheff, of Boston firm Sheff & Cook, at a press conference in his office Tuesday afternoon. “They simply needed to place a few barriers or bollards between the parking lot traffic, which was busy holiday traffic, and the public.”

Bradley Rein, 53, of Hingham, told police that he was shopping the Derby Street Shops, the location of the Apple store, looking for new eyeglasses when — his lawyer Alison King said at his bail hearing — his foot became trapped against the accelerator pedal of his 2019 Toyota 4Runner SUV and he smashed through the storefront of the Apple store at around 10:45 a.m. on Nov. 21.

In the aftermath, Kevin Bradley, 65, of New Jersey was dead and 19 more were injured, the Herald reported. Sheff said his clients suffered serious injuries, including “severe orthopedic as well as brain injuries.”
