Injury Victim Can Not Recover From Deceased’s Estate
May 3, 2010
A Massachusetts resident was unsuccessful in bringing a personal injury claim against a decreased homeowner’s estate. The plaintiff says that bad maintenance of his property when the defendant was alive caused an accident just a couple of months after his death.
The personal injury victim brought suit because the deceased knew about the hazard on his property and did not repair the discrepancies prior to his death. For this reason, the estate should cover the damages for this mishaps.
The court in Massachusetts failed to agree with the plaintiffs claim. The court states that the homeowner can not correct an issue after he has passed away. The court also stated that the length of responsibility on material assets seize when a person is decreased.Massachusetts personal injury lawyer, Attorney Alan Segal is based in Needham, MA and serves the Greater Boston region and all of Massachusetts in all personal injury accident claims and cases, including the cities and towns of Acton Agawam Amherst Andover Arlington Attleboro Barnstable Belmont Beverly Billercia Boston Braintree Bridgewater Brockton Brookline Burlington Cambridge Canton Chelmsford Chelsea Chicopee Danvers Dartmouth Dedham Dracut Easton Everett Fall River Falmouth Fitchburg Framingham Gloucester Haverhill Holyoke Lawrence Leominster Lexington Lowell Lynn Malden Marlborough Medford Melrose Metheun Milford Milton Natick Needham New Bedford Newton North Andover North Attleboro North Reading Norwood Peabody Pittsfield Plymouth Quincy Randolph Revere Salem Saugus Shrewsbury Somerville Springfield Stoughton Taunton Tewksbury Waltham Watertown Wellesley Westfield West Springfield Weymouth Woburn Worcester.
