Personal injury cases range quite broadly and each state has a different definition of what personal injury entails. In Massachusetts, whenever a defendant has shown negligence by any means and has caused an injury to you or a loved one, this is grounds for a personal injury case.
Common Personal Injury Cases
- Automobile accidents and motorcycle accidents are the most common personal injury cases in Massachusetts. At the Law Office of Bardsley & Gray, our New Bedford attorneys determine to what extent the defendant was at fault and what compensation you should be awarded in order to pay for medical bills and other losses.
- Medical malpractice is another common personal injury claim filed in the state of Massachusetts. Unfortunately doctors may prescribe the wrong drugs, operate on the wrong limb, or leave surgical instruments inside an incision.
- Pedestrian accidents happen all too frequently here in New Bedford due to negligent drunk or distracted drivers. These cases can often be severe and lead to mounting medical bills. It’s important to get the proper compensation so you can return to your daily activities and job.
- Dog bite injuries are another common personal injury case. Dog attacks can be extensive and serious, and if the owner is found to be guilty of negligence, then our law office will make sure you get the help you need to recover as quickly as possible.
