Personal Injury Law in Boston
In order to bring forth a personal injury claim to recover damages for the harm that you have suffered, you will need to prove that the defendant (the person who caused your injuries) owed you a duty of care, and then breached this duty. A breach of the duty of care is called negligence. Negligence is the failure to behave in a manner that a regular personal would deem reasonable, and may include acts such as driving aggressively, failing to warn a consumer about product dangers, failing to sanitize medical equipment, operating a vehicle while intoxicated, and more.
You will also need to prove the defendant’s negligence was the direct cause of your injuries, and that you have suffered damages as a result. Damages might include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other forms of economic and noneconomic harm.
