The Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in MA

In Massachusetts, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is generally three years from the date of the injury or accident. This means that you have three years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries.

It's important to note that there are some exceptions and variations to this general rule depending on the specific circumstances of the case. For example, if the injury involves a government entity, there may be shorter notice requirements, and if the injury was not immediately discovered, the statute of limitations may be extended.

It's always best to consult with a qualified personal injury attorney in Massachusetts to understand how the statute of limitations applies to your particular situation. An attorney from our firm can help you determine the deadline for filing your claim and ensure that you take the necessary steps to protect your rights within the applicable time frame.

Understanding Personal Injury in Massachusetts 

Personal injury refers to an area of law that seeks to compensate individuals harmed due to another person's negligence or intentional conduct. This legal concept is based on the principle that individuals and organizations have a duty to act reasonably and prevent injury to others. 

When this duty is breached and causes an injury, the law provides a means for the injured party to seek compensation for their losses.

Injuries sustained in negligence-based or intentional misconduct can range from cuts and bruises to whiplash, sprains, concussions, broken bones, internal organ damage, gunshot wounds, and catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury, burns, amputations, blindness, and spinal cord damage leading to various forms of paralysis. 

Along with the necessity of financing medical expenses, you may be unable to work temporarily or permanently, adding additional stress. Permanent disabilities may require years or a lifetime of medical or personal at-home care, home or vehicle renovations, and vocational training to learn new skills to become self-supporting. 

The financial toll can be enormous, which calls for the services of a legal professional to help you recover the financial resources needed to resume your life. 

What is Negligence?

Negligence in a personal injury claim refers to the failure of an individual or entity to exercise a reasonable standard of care, which subsequently results in harm or injury to another person. To establish negligence in a personal injury case, the plaintiff must prove four key elements:

  • Duty of Care: The defendant owed a legal duty to the plaintiff. This duty varies depending on the relationship between the parties and the circumstances of the case. For example, drivers have a duty to obey traffic laws and drive safely to avoid harming others on the road.
  • Breach of Duty: The defendant breached this duty by failing to act as a reasonably prudent person would under similar circumstances. This breach can occur through actions (such as speeding or running a red light) or omissions (such as failing to put up a warning sign for a wet floor).
  • Causation: The defendant's breach of duty directly caused the plaintiff's injury. There are two components to causation: actual cause (or "cause in fact") and proximate cause. Actual cause means the injury would not have occurred "but for" the defendant's actions. Proximate cause relates to whether the injury was a foreseeable result of the defendant's actions.
  • Damages: The plaintiff suffered actual harm or injury as a result of the defendant's breach. This harm can be physical, emotional, or financial. Without real damages, a negligence claim cannot succeed.

In a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must present evidence to support each of these elements to prove that the defendant's negligence caused their injury. If successful, the plaintiff may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related losses.

What Makes an Injury Claim Viable

A viable personal injury claim in Massachusetts typically involves three key elements: liability, damages, and a source of recovery. 

Liability means that another party was at fault for the accident. Damages refer to the injuries sustained and the resulting losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A source of recovery generally involves insurance coverage or assets of the at-fault party from which compensation can be obtained.

Successful Settlements

Reaching a successful settlement in a personal injury case requires thorough preparation, proven negotiation skills, and a deep understanding of the law. We have a track record of securing optimum client settlements at Davis Law Group. 

We work aggressively to gather evidence, establish fault, and accurately calculate damages to ensure you receive the full compensation you are entitled to under the law. 

Types of Compensation You May Be Awarded

In a personal injury case, you may be awarded different types of compensation depending on the specifics of your case. 

These may include:

  • Economic damages: tangible losses such as medical expenses and lost income
  • Non-economic damages: intangible losses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages: intended to punish the wrongdoer in especially egregious cases and deter others from committing similar acts

    "Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client."
    I have used the services of Davis Law Group a number of times during the past 20 years and found them to be an extremely professional and caring law firm. Specifically I have used them for real estate transactions and for estate planning, wills, and healthcare proxies, with Jay Davis and Maryanne McGonagle as my primary attorneys. Whereas some law firms use boiler plates and treat clients as transactions, Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client and customized to those needs. I highly recommend this firm.

    "They have always done right by us."
    Three generations of my family have trusted Davis Law Group with our legal needs and they have always done right by us. Since April I have been working non-stop with Mary Anne McGonagle and Jay Davis to navigate and probate an excruciatingly-complicated estate. Both Mary Anne and Jay have gone out of their way numerous times on my behalf and have vigorously protected my interests in the face of some fairly significant headwinds. I could not be more thankful for, and appreciative of, their attention and the care they have demonstrated for my family.
    - Bryan
    "What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation."
    I benefited a lot from a recent consultation with Mary Anne. She is very knowledgeable in the area of landlord-tenant law, but what expressed me the most is her ethics. Although it was a free consultation, she still took it very seriously and spent the time to read my files prior to the call. During the session, she made complex legal issues easy to understand, analyzed my case and offer very good advice. She also worked very hard and communicated with me even after her normal work hours. What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation.
