Under Massachusetts law, when liability is established against a hospital or a doctor for birth injuries, the damages awarded most often include payment of past and also reasonably-calculated future medical expenses and lost wages. Permanent functional impairment as well as the pain and suffering endured by the victim and his or her parents are also elements of damages.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I am a victim of a hit and run accident, what special steps should I take?

First and foremost, you should call the police immediately. Obviously, if you or a passenger have sustained personal injury, obtain emergency medical assistance. You must report a hit and run accident to your own insurance company within 24 hours in order to preserve your right to coverage.

What are liens, and how do they affect my damages recovery?

A lien is the legal right to repayment. Liens are established in motor vehicle cases in a few different ways. First, some medical providers establish liens to protect their right to the payment of outstanding medical bills from the settlement of a personal injury case. Second, personal health insurance companies establish liens to allow them to be reimbursed for any payments made for medical treatment in a motor vehicle accident case. Third, certain public benefits paid to motor vehicle accident victims may be recovered through liens. In all cases, Massachusetts law establishes procedures and rights of lien holders. If applicable, a lien reduces the amount of damages an accident victim receives.

I was injured in a motor vehicle accident while at work. Are my work-related injuries treated differently?

In this set of circumstances, your work related injuries are compensable under the Workers' Compensation Act. At the same time, you may have a right against a negligent motor vehicle operator as well. The interrelationship between a workers' compensation case and a personal injury claim is always complicated. You must be careful, as you will be dealing with at least two different insurance companies and their claims personnel. As has been said, you shouldn't go it alone.
