Burns can happen in numerous situations, from a car crash, medical error, or malfunctioning product to an electrical mishap at a workplace or construction site. Lawsuits that arise from accidents caused by someone else’s carelessness often are based on the legal theory of negligence. This may allow victims to hold people and entities liable for breaching what the law generally calls a “duty of care.” A car, truck, or motorcycle driver, for example, is expected to operate his or her vehicle in a reasonably safe manner and is often liable for harm that results from his or her failure to do so.
The duty of a defendant may be defined differently in some specialized contexts. Doctors and health care providers can potentially be held accountable for medical malpractice, for example, if they fail to meet a certain standard of care that is based on generally accepted practices and procedures in their field. Meanwhile, product designers, manufacturers, and sellers are covered by an implied warranty of merchantability in Massachusetts. These companies are often liable for any injuries caused by releasing defective products into the market or by failing to warn consumers of non-obvious safety hazards posed by the ordinary use of their devices.
In some cases, burns and other serious injuries may occur because a structure in which an accident, fire, or explosion takes place isn’t properly equipped with emergency exit routes or because those routes have become obstructed. When this happens, the property owner may be liable for any resulting injuries under a legal theory called premises liability. State law requires individuals and companies to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors of any hazards of which they know or should be aware. This typically includes any problems with exit routes in a building.Discuss Your Injury Lawsuit with a Knowledgeable Massachusetts Attorney
