No one ever plans for an injury to occur, that is why the incidents that cause injuries are usually called “accidents.” However, the reality is that, in many cases, the incident was not an “accident” at all. Most likely, someone else’s negligence or recklessness caused the injury. When that occurs, the injured victim may have legal options to consider.
Probably the most common “accident” that people think of when it comes to personal injury lawsuits is a car accident. But, there are many other types of accidents that can lead to serious injuries, such as motorcycle accidents, medication errors, slip-and-fall incidents and even dog bites and animal attacks. The wide variety of situations in which a Massachusetts resident might suffer an injury can be head-turning, and the potential injuries that might be involved can be devastating.
Taking action with a personal injury lawsuit
When trying to prove negligence in a personal injury lawsuit, the crucial part is having the appropriate evidence. In many cases, photos of the accident scene and those involved, including photos of the injuries that were suffered, can be helpful evidence to prove the case. Injured victims will also want to document all of their medical expenses as well, so that they can prove those damages at the appropriate time in the case.
