Bristol and Suffolk County Personal Injury Lawyers

Veteran Civil Trial Lawyer for Clients in Bristol & Suffolk Counties

Nothing can derail your life like an unpredicted accident leaving you injured, unable to work, and likely facing huge medical expenses. This situation is worse when it has been caused by someone else who acted in a negligent, careless, or reckless manner. The most common of these types of accidents are traffic accidents involving motorists and their passengers, truckers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Unfortunately, these types of accidents are all too common, happening every day and most often in urban areas across the nation where high-density traffic is a daily occurrence.

If you or a family member has been injured through the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, group, business, or governmental agency, you should seek legal help. Going it alone is not recommended most especially when you will have to deal with an insurance company. While they may appear friendly, these companies are not on your side.

Their main objective will be to pay you as little as possible. That is why you need an attorney who knows how to thoroughly investigate the accident, identify all those at fault, gather and document evidence, and aggressively negotiate for a fair and just settlement. In cases where that fails to happen, you will want an attorney with trial experience. That is what you will find at the Law Office of Frank D. Camera and Associates, P.C. Attorney Kathryn Blythe, of Counsel, handles our Rhode Island cases.

Personal Injury Cases in Massachusetts

Personal injury claims and lawsuits can stem from a variety of accidents and incidents but the main underlying factor among them is negligence on the part of the other party. In these cases, it must be shown that the at-fault party failed in a duty of care that should have been provided you and was not and which led to your injuries and damages.

Examples of these accidents and incidents can include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents and other premises liability accidents
  • Dangerous and defective consumer products
  • Dangerous and defective medical drugs or devices
  • Workplace accidents caused by third party negligence
  • Dog bites/attacks
  • Wrongful death

When you have been victimized by another party through negligence, you have a right under personal injury law to receive compensation for all of the damages you suffered. These damages can include all of your past and predicted future medical expenses related to the injury, your loss of wages or income due to being out of work, any out-of-pocket expenses related to the injury, property damage, such as to your vehicle or other belongings, your pain and suffering, mental anguish, and more. Medical expenses alone can be astronomical, including those for emergency room treatment, hospitalizations, surgeries, physical therapy, medical prescriptions and equipment, and follow-up doctor visits.

Depending on how serious the accident was and the extent of your injuries, you could be out of work for days, weeks, months, or even years. In the most serious cases where catastrophic injuries occur such as spinal cord injuries or brain injuries, the injured individual may be looking at a lifetime of permanent disability.

What Is Negligence?

Negligence is a legal concept that refers to the failure to exercise the level of care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in similar circumstances. In the context of personal injury law, negligence occurs when someone's actions or omissions fall below the standard of care expected of a reasonable person, resulting in harm or injury to another person.

To establish a claim of negligence, the following elements must typically be proven: 

  • Duty of care: The defendant (the person being accused of negligence) owed a legal duty of care to the plaintiff (the person bringing the claim). This duty of care is often defined by the specific circumstances of the case and may vary depending on the relationship between the parties and the nature of the actions involved.
  • Breach of duty: The defendant breached the duty of care by failing to act as a reasonably prudent person would have under similar circumstances. This breach is often assessed based on whether the defendant's actions or omissions fell below the standard of care expected in the given situation.
  • Causation: The defendant's breach of duty was the direct cause of the plaintiff's injury or harm. In other words, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant's actions or omissions were a substantial factor in causing the harm suffered.
  • Damages: The plaintiff suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant's breach of duty. These damages may include physical injuries, emotional distress, financial losses, or other measurable harm.

If these elements can be proven, the plaintiff may be entitled to compensation for the damages caused by the defendant's negligence. Negligence is a common basis for personal injury claims, and it forms the foundation for many civil lawsuits seeking compensation for injuries caused by another party's carelessness or recklessness.
