Car accidents come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from minor rear-end fender benders in a parking lot to high-speed collisions on highways that may result in permanent disabilities or even death. The chances of a devastating crash rise significantly when a driver decides to get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These collisions often cause serious injuries that change a victim’s life forever.Assert Your Right to Compensation Following a Drunk Driving Accident
Someone who is injured in an auto accident, whether it is caused by drugged driving or another careless action, has a right to seek compensation from anyone who was responsible for the crash. The damages that are available in these cases often include compensation for medical expenses, missed wages and lost earning capacity, repairs to a vehicle, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and lost enjoyment of life. In the tragic event that a crash leads to a loss of life, the family of the person killed in the car accident is authorized under state law to seek wrongful death damages from a careless driver or another responsible party.
To secure compensation, a person injured in a collision typically will sue under a theory of negligence. Massachusetts law requires drivers to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. This means refraining from dangerous behavior like driving under the influence of drugs. A driver who fails to live up to this responsibility is likely to be found liable for all of the harm that was caused to the innocent victims of their actions. A victim also needs to prove that the defendant’s negligence caused the crash and that they sustained damages that are reasonably quantifiable and thus compensable. The process of proving a claim often involves gathering witness testimony and other evidence, such as detailed medical records that show the scope of the past, present, and future harm.Seek Guidance from a Cape Cod Lawyer for Your Car Accident Claim
