How does comparative negligence affect Massachusetts' victims?


Unfortunately, many Massachusetts residents will find themselves in a car accident at some point in their lives. When this happens, their first reaction must be to determine if they, their passengers, and other parties are OK. After that, they might wonder who was at fault. Determining fault is an important step in the quest to recover compensation for one's damages. Yet, there may be some confusion as to how fault is calculated and how it affects a victim's chances of recovery.

Pittsfield motorcycle accident leaves rider dead


Many of Massachusetts' residents ride motorcycles. They are an economical way to get to work and family gathering and a joyride can be relaxing. However, these vehicle's small size and lack of safety features makes them prone to injurious or even fatal accidents. Those who ride motorcycles should be aware of their legal rights so that, should they find themselves in such a situation, they know how to act to protect their interests and those of other motorcyclists on the road.

Truck accident leaves Boston woman with serious injuries


People who think of truck accidents often conjure images of a tractor trailer colliding with a car on a highway or interstate. Though these types of wrecks are far too common and can leave unsuspecting motorists severely injured, they are not the only type of truck accident. Pedestrians, too, are often at risk of being struck by these massive vehicles, and, without much protection, they are in danger of suffering serious injuries or death.

One dead, another injured in Massachusetts motorcycle accident


Riding a motorcycle is a great way to take in Massachusetts' landscape while relaxing and enjoying the weather. It can also be a cost-saving way to get around town and to commute to and from work. However, since motorcyclists are not surrounded by steel reinforcements and are not protected by airbags as are car and truck drivers, motorists must be careful to be aware of them and to avoid acting in a way that might cause a collision.

Retained sponge results in harm and medical malpractice lawsuit


Massachusetts' residents who elect to have a surgical operation hope that certain steps are properly followed. They want incisions made in the right order, the right body part operated on, and the operation itself to be successful in remedying their problem. However, there are other, seemingly minor, steps that must be taken during a surgical procedure, and failing to do so properly can result in significant harm to a patient.
