Under Massachusetts’s law, personal injury claims are won by proving that another individual’s or company’s careless actions led to your personal injuries. This is done by providing evidence that the other individual or company was negligent, reckless, or intentional.
Negligence is proven by showing that the other party failed to take reasonable care, while intentional or recklessness is proven by showing that the other party acted intentionally or maliciously.
In Massachusetts you can be compensated for your injuries even if you were comparatively negligent. This means that if you are less than 51% responsible for the cause of your injury, you can still bring an action for personal injury against another individual or company. Any recovery under a comparative negligent theory is reduced by the percentage of your own fault.
