Bringing a Negligence Claim after an Accident

If you have been hurt in an accident, you probably have the right to seek compensation from those responsible. The damages that may be available in Massachusetts personal injury cases include reimbursement for medical bills, property damage, missed wages stemming from time off the job, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. In certain cases, courts will award punitive damages to punish a responsible party for particularly egregious behavior. In addition, the family of a loved one injured or killed in an accident may be able to hold those responsible liable through a wrongful death action.

One issue to keep in mind when developing and bringing a case is the limited time window imposed by state law. Massachusetts’ statute of limitations gives you three years to file suit in personal injury cases. The clock typically starts running on the date of the accident. In some cases, however, it starts from the time that you became aware of or reasonably should have known about the injury. In either case, a person who files after the deadline is likely to have the lawsuit dismissed. This is why it is imperative to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident.

Most personal injury cases involve claims of negligence. This legal theory holds people and entities liable for harm that they cause when they fail to live up to a “duty of care.” Property owners, for instance, owe visitors a duty to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn them of hazards of which the owner knows or should know. Doctors owe their patients a duty to provide a certain level of care and expertise in diagnosis and treatment. Drivers owe others on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. When someone breaches one of these duties or another duty of care, they are likely to be found negligent. A person suing for negligence also needs to show that the failure to meet the appropriate standard of care directly caused them to be hurt.
