Filing for Damages
If you are seeking to file a lawsuit against a negligent individual or entity then you will need to prove two elements in order to be eligible to obtain money damages for the injuries you have sustained:
- The other individual acted negligently
- Their negligence was a proximate cause for your injuries
In order to prove negligence you must be able to establish that:
- The other party owed you a duty of care as in the case of premises liability or the right-of-way on the road
- They violated this duty of care through deliberate malicious action or through an unreasonable mistake
If you are able to prove these elements then you may be able to obtain damages through a lawsuit.
If you are seeking to obtain damages through filing a workers compensation claim then you must notify your employer immediately of the injury that you have sustained, fill out the necessary documentation and have your supervisor prepare the necessary documentation and have the claim filed within two days of the accident that caused your injury. The claim will then go to a workers compensation coordinator who will send copies to the insurance carrier and the Massachusetts department of labor. The insurance carrier will then launch an investigation, and either deny or accept your claim and apply the appropriate benefits.
