Have you suffered a sickness or injury due to a doctor’s error? Or suffered severe financial losses due to a lawyer’s carelessness? If so, you may be able to get financial restitution due to Massachusetts negligence laws.
Society places professionals like doctors and lawyers in positions of great trust. When they abuse this trust through negligence or indifference, it hurts everyone, not just the immediate victim. This is why issues like malpractice and disbarment are based on Massachusetts negligence laws, which are designed to protect you from the carelessness of others.
If you choose to take such a case to court, your lawyer will need to prove that the offending party was both obliged to care for you, and failed to do so. This will demonstrate that the defendant did not act according to the standards of the profession, or to the requirements of Massachusetts negligence laws.
Massachusetts negligence laws don’t just cover harmful or ill-advised actions on the defendant’s part. They also deal with the defendant’s failure to act. If you’ve suffered because of someone’s omission, that may be cause for a Massachusetts personal injury lawsuit.
