Understanding Negligence and Personal Injury
Personal injury claims in Massachusetts are won by proving that another person or company’s careless actions led to your injuries. This may be done by showing that the other party was negligent — failed to take reasonable care — or intentionally harmful or reckless — malicious or intentional infliction of harm. If someone is negligent, he/she failed to use reasonable care, but did not do so intentionally. Intentional conduct is also what is known as tortious conduct. The standard for an intentional act is what we would expect, purposeful conduct. Sometimes an actor is reckless, and that means that the injury is caused by “willful ignorance”.
Massachusetts also uses modified comparative negligence, which means that even if you are partially responsible for the accident, you will still be compensated if you were less than 51% responsible. M.G.L.c. 231, s. 85. If this applies, the financial recovery Feinberg & Alban, P.C. may obtain on your behalf will be reduced by the percentage you were at fault.
Our lawyers know the technical issues and law behind personal injury and wrongful death cases, navigating — and recovering — damages for medical bills, disability, lost earnings, loss of consortium, pain and suffering and, if applicable, punitive damages. On punitive damages, see the Massachusetts Wrongful Death Statute, M.G.L.c. 229, s. 2, allowing for a recovery “in an amount of not less than $5,000 [if the death] was caused by the malicious, willful, wanton or reckless conduct of the defendant or by the gross negligence of the defendant.”
