Compensation and Damages for the Victim of a Personal Injury in Massachusetts

Damages are categorized as either special or general. In torts, special damages are measurable costs which can be itemized such as medical expenses, lost earnings, and property damages whereas general damages include less measurable costs such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
