What You Should Know About Personal Injury Law in Massachussets

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.

What is a typical contingency fee?
