Contributory negligence can impact motorcycle accident claims

Negligence is an important legal concept on which many personal injury claims are based. A person is generally considered to have acted negligently if their conduct differs from what a reasonable person would have done in a given situation. For example, if a Massachusetts resident speeds in their vehicle, runs a red light or otherwise causes an accident with a motorcyclist, they may be found to have acted negligently, since a reasonable person would not have, for example, sped or missed the traffic signal.

Seek legal counsel after suffering an animal bite injury

A pet can deeply enrich a Massachusetts resident's life. The ever-present wagging of a dog's tail and the gentle rubbing up of a cat against a person's legs can put a smile on a person's face even after they have had to endure a long, grueling day. Domestic animals can be found in many Worcester homes and yards. Thankfully, most people's family pets are generally well-behaved.

Injuries from car accidents can take on many forms

A minor car accident can leave a victim with bumps and bruises while a serious accident may cause a victim to suffer paralysis, brain injury or even death. This post will examine some of the common types of injuries that vehicle accident victims may sustain in collisions, but readers of this Worcester personal injury blog are asked to seek independent medical and legal advice as this post provides general information only.

Should I settle my motorcycle accident claims?

After sustaining injuries in a motorcycle accident, a victim may not want to jump into what may become a lengthy legal battle. They may be tempted to accept a settlement offer put forth by the party that caused their harm and to simply release that party from any further responsibility for the losses they caused to the victim. While settlements can sometime serve the interests of Worcester motorcycle accident victims, readers are cautioned that settlement in these cases is not always the best course of action.

Grounds on which a wrongful death claim may be based

Earlier this month, this Worcester personal injury legal blog offered an informative post about the use of a breach of warranty claim as the basis of a wrongful death lawsuit. This post will follow up on that article by briefly introducing the other two claims on which wrongful death suits may be based: negligence and reckless or wanton conduct.
