Massachusetts Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law protects those who have been injured as a result of the negligence of another person or entity. Whether it is medical malpractice on the part of a doctor or the failure of a property owner to maintain proper safety standards, laws are in place to uphold the rights of injured individuals who have been wronged. Although states have slightly different laws, in order to file a claim in Massachusetts the plaintive must be able to prove the following:

  1. The injured person was in the care of  the defendant or the defendant otherwise owed a duty to the plaintiff
  2. The defendant’s failure to adequately uphold his or her duty caused the plaintiff’s injury

Massachusetts also recognizes comparative negligence. This means that if the plaintiff’s actions contributed to his or her own injury, the plaintiff may still be able to recover in Court as long as he or she was less than 50% negligent.

There are many types of personal injuries but some of the most common include:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Product defect and product liability issues
  • Accidents in the home
  • Construction site accidents
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Burn injuries
  • Sporting injuries
  • Medical malpractice and dental accidents
  • Dog bites

If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury because of the negligence of another person or organization, you deserve to be adequately compensated for your suffering. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney in Massachusetts to discuss your claim.
