Personal Injury in Worcester

Most Worcester personal injury laws are based on a theory of negligence. A person is negligent if he or she failed to exercise reasonable care. To prove negligence, you must be able to establish the following:

  • That the person who caused your injury owed a duty to you
  • That the other person breached the duty that he or she owed to you
  • That you suffered damages
  • That the other person’s breach caused you to be injured

Under the comparative negligence system in Massachusetts, you may be able to recover for your injuries, even if you also were negligent. Your recovery will be reduced by the percentage you were found to be at fault for your own injury.

Under Massachusetts law, you have three years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Speak to a Worcester personal injury lawyer today for a free initial consultation about your injuries.
