Under Massachusetts law, an injured party may sue for damages from the at-fault party when one of the following criteria is met:
- The victim has died
- The victim has $2,000 or more in related and reasonable medical expenses
- The victim suffers a permanent and serious disfigurement
- A bone is fractured
- The loss of one or more of the “senses” – such as sight, taste, hearing, or smell
- A limb has been lost
The injured party, under Massachusetts law, has a modified comparative negligence standard. Massachusetts will not bar recovery if a plaintiff is partially at fault. However, it will prevent recovery if the plaintiff is 51% or more at fault.
