In order to win a personal injury case in Massachusetts, you need to prove that you have been injured by another party’s careless actions. Personal injury victims can claim several types of personal injury cases against the defendants. Some of the laws follow:
Negligence law will be applicable when someone's reckless actions caused an injury. Though the act might be unintentional, the responsible party might still be chargeable for damages. There is usually liability insurance for the acts of carelessness, provided by the homeowner’s insurance, auto insurance, or other liability insurance policy.
This is the malicious harm that can lead to death. In a case where the reckless misconduct or intentional infliction result is death, then, under some circumstances, the victim’s family might recover punitive damages.
Strict liability basically covers product liability. Under this law, the victim or his/her family can lodge a file against the manufacturer or supplier for the harmful products. Also, in the case of a dog bite, you could lodge a case against the owner of the dog.
Damages generally apply to the victims who have suffered wrongful death or personal injuries from the responsible person. In Massachusetts, damages are considered special damages, which include medical bills for loss of consortium, pain, scarring and disability, and for the loss of enjoyment of life. Also, in some rare death cases, punitive damages might be awarded.
