Massachusetts Law Puts the Burden on the Injured Victim to Prove a Personal Injury Claim
Massachusetts law allows injury victims who were harmed by negligence to recover compensation for their injuries from the negligent party responsible for the accident or injury. Recoverable damages include:
- Present and future hospital and medical expenses
- Lost wages for time missed from work due to injury
- Lost future income in the case of disability
- Pain and suffering
Recovering this compensation is not always easy, however. The burden is on the injury victim to bring a claim against the negligent party, and if a settlement cannot be reached with the negligent party or their insurance company, the victim may have to prove the case in court. This means proving that the other party breached a duty they owed to you that caused your injury. You must also be able to prove the nature and extent of your injuries as well.
Proving these legal and factual issues requires trial skills and experience litigating personal injury claims. The other party’s insurance company will claim that your own negligence caused or contributed to your injuries, and if they are successful convincing a jury that you are more than 50% to blame, you can be prevented from obtaining any recovery at all. They may also downplay the serious nature of your injuries and present medical testimony against you which you must be able to oppose.
