Road conditions that can cause auto accidents

Most motor vehicle accidents tend to be the result of driver error and sometimes due to poor weather conditions. However, another culprit that deserves more attention is the road itself. The very surface that you drive on can pose a danger and cause you to get into an accident.

Are punitive damages available in wrongful death actions?

When a person is hurt or killed due to the actions of another person, certain personal injury legal claims may arise that give the victim or victims options for seeking compensation for the harm they have suffered. When a Worcester resident is hurt in a car accident, they may sue the responsible party under the theory of negligence. If that individual is killed in the crash, their estate may be entitled to sue on wrongful death grounds.

Wrongful death claims based on water accidents

Over the Memorial Day holiday, readers of this Worcester personal injury legal blog may be ready to embrace the coming of summer. For many, summer means freedom from school, cookouts with friends and family and time in the water. Water time can include boating and swimming in local bodies of water, visiting the neighborhood pool or enjoying sports on the river.

Filing a civil action following a dog bite

Owning a pet is a fairly common practice across the nation. Domesticated animals, such as a dog or a cat, are not only viewed as a pet or a companion. To some, a pet is like a family member. No matter what a pet means to an individual, however, the reality is that a pet owner is responsible for their pet. This goes beyond providing the animal adequate care. It means being responsible for one's pet, whether that means paying for damage the pet causes to the property of others or when a pet bites or attacks another.

An attorney can be an asset in a truck accident case

Accidents that happen on Massachusetts roads can range from annoyances to life-changing events. While some who are involved in collisions are able to walk away from their ordeals, others may spend the rest of their lives coping with the devastation that their accidents imparted upon them. Accidents with large trucks and commercial vehicles can be especially damaging and can leave victims unsure of where to turn.

When negligent pet owners blame victims for their pets' attacks

A responsible pet owner is generally a person who understands and meets the needs of their animal, trains their pet to act appropriately when around others, and who uses appropriate control devices, such as leashes, fences and collars, to ensure that their pets cannot annoy or harm others whether they are in their homes or out in public. Incidents happen, though, where Worcester residents come into contact with domestic animals that are not properly under the control of their owners. When animals attack, it is often the fault of their owner for allowing the incident occur.
