Personal Injury Law Protects Massachusetts Accident Victims
Personal injury law protects people who have been injured in an accident due to the wrongful actions of someone else. The purpose of the law is to require the person or entity that is responsible for an accident to pay for damages their actions cause. In Massachusetts, personal injury cases hinge on the theory of negligence. If a person fails to exercise reasonable care and that failure results in an injury, the individual will be held negligent and be responsible for damages. In Massachusetts, contributory negligence, (the victim is partially at fault for his or her injuries), may reduce the damages awarded but does not bar the victim from recovering damages.
Proving negligence is critical to achieving a successful settlement in a personal injury case.
How Can A Personal Injury Attorney Help?
A personal injury attorney will collect evidence to establish that:
- There was a legal duty owed to you, the victim.
- The responsible party failed in their legal duty.
- That you suffered an injury and provide evidence to the extent and amount of injury.
- That the failure of the responsible party caused your injury.
After an accident, insurance companies and adjusters may make an offer to quickly settle your case. They are motivated to avoid having a case go to court AND settle for the least amount possible. It is not unheard of for insurance companies to bully or apply pressure to victims to settle for an amount before the full extent of the injuries are known. If you have been injured in an accident it is your right to contact an attorney before agreeing to any settlement.
The legal team at Kiley Law group understands how insurance companies work and are not intimidated by their tactics. At Kiley, you, the victim are the only priority. The attorneys at Kiley Law Group represent you and your best interests and are dedicated to ensuring you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
What Damages Can I Recover For My Injuries?
Recoverable damages from a personal injury accident are divided into two categories, economic and non-economic. One of the benefits of having a personal injury attorney is the experience and knowledge they provide when calculating damages that you, alone, may not have been aware were available or needed.

- Future medical expenses such as: Physical therapy, rehabilitation, on going treatment and medication.
- Loss of Income while recovering.
- Future loss of income if the injury limits or prohibits earnings going forward.

- Loss of companionship
- Loss of consortium with a spouse
